Stoll: “You can’t rely on a switch to play hockey”

I spoke with Jarret Stoll, Jake Muzzin and Dustin Brown earlier today about the transition from playing a struggling team in Edmonton to facing Atlantic Division-leading Montreal. Not surprisingly, the Kings are looking to refine aspects of their own game without focusing as much on who their opponent […]
