Good morning, Detroit

Good morning from Detroit, where the Kings arrived roughly half an hour after a touch down at DTW last night. Arrival at the hotel was at 12:30, give or take, and would have been earlier if not for the Pittsburgh and Detroit airports being situated well outside of each city’s downtown areas. For the second straight flight, travel time from wheels up to wheels down was roughly 40 minutes. While ...

October 30 postgame quotes: Alec Martinez

On Pittsburgh’s special teams play: I think they’ve got the best power play in the league. We can’t take penalties against these guys and obviously give them the opportunity to go up a man. Obviously that really works a few guys on the PK. It gets us out of our rhythm. Obviously we can’t do that. On Pittsburgh’s penalty killing: I think we have to take more of a focus ...

October 30 postgame quotes: Jarret Stoll

On whether he was surprised to see Justin Williams and Evgeni Malkin scrap: No, not really. They’re two competitive guys. They both play hard. Both guys probably a little [ticked] off. It happens. On whether there is an advantage to having a game the day after being shut out: Yeah, I guess. You can look at it a number of ways, but we have to right the ship right away ...

I know there was a big deal made about the offensive juggernaut that they are, but ...
