9 – The Kings have won 9 out of their 12 games coming back from the Olympic break.
As we pointed out recently, the Kings are playing very good hockey right now. They’ve been gaining the zone a lot more aggressively of late and it seems to be paying off as they are starting to create more chances. Offensive creativity has been the missing element for a very well-rounded Kings team in recent years.
Lately, they’ve been playing a much more entertaining brand of hockey and are winning games to boot. Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson have been a big part of that. The kids are bringing energy and playing at a very high level. Since the Olympic break, the Kings have out-attempted opponents 160-86 with only 1 goal against when Toffoli has been on ice at evens. With Pearson on ice, they’ve out-attempted opponents 101-63.
It’s a very exciting time to be an LA Kings fan.
