With their fading playoff hopes hanging in the balance, the LA Kings have entered “must-win” territory.
It wasn’t that long ago that the LA Kings and their fans had visions of making the playoffs dancing in their heads, but it sure seems like it was.
Since March 1st, the Kings have gone 6-10-2, including two crushing two-game series sweeps to their hated rivals, the San Jose Sharks.
