Kings are getting ready for the season

Listen to this article

On Wednesday and Thursday I was able to spend some time at the L.A. Kings training facility in El Segundo. Last season was a big disappointment for the team and their fans, but if you look at their overall performance last season, the Kings played pretty well, better than their record shows.

Quick-KopitarSome key issues: not enough goals from the top shooters, like Anze Kopitar; and goalie Jonathan Quick was very good, except in the shootouts. If the Kings can avoid going to the shootouts that will add some wins to the record.

While at the training facility I had one-on-one interviews with Kyle Clifford and Marián Gáborík and was able to ask some questions of head coach Darryl Sutter.
