Good Evening, Insiders! We made it. Opening Night here at STAPLES Center, our first opportunity to see the newly constructed LA Kings in action. The Kings are faced with a stern test right off the bat, in last season’s Western Conference Finalist, the Vegas Golden Knights. We’ll see how the Kings stack up against an opponent that gave them trouble a season ago, with new personnel, a new mindset and a new outlook here in 2021-22. Puck drops at 7:30, more to come throughout the evening!
