    3 Takeaways From Kings' Play in January

    The Los Angeles Kings don't fit into either of these categories, but January was still a key month for them as they push towards the playoff hunt. The Kings were able to finish the month with a 7-5-1 record, which is a .571 points percentage. The Kings' true battle right now is to make the playoffs as one of the three teams coming out of the Pacific Division, and they were able to win all three games against divisional opponents in the month. Kevin Fiala showed why he was the Kings' representative in the All-Star Game, leading the team with 16 points in 13 games.

    Kings midseason analysis: Potential with a chance of pitfalls

    Eighty-two games have become 29 as the Kings stare down a trail that should lead them back to the playoffs for a second consecutive season and afford them an opportunity to advance in the postseason for the first time in nearly a decade. Only Boston, which the Kings defeated to start their run, and Carolina, which rallied from three goals down to saddle the Kings with an overtime loss heading into the All-Star break, have owned better marks in the past quarter of the NHL schedule. Initially, Coach Todd McLellan described his roster as one striving for an identity, then as one that miscast itself as a run-and-gun roster, then as one that was part of the majority of teams seeking consistency and, lately, as a group that's begun to find itself and sustain its efficacy for longer periods. The Kings' current position is an enviable but precarious one, perhaps most succinctly evidenced by their goal differential.
