Power Rankings
In championship seasons, GM Dean Lombardi has made that one splashy move that puts his team over the top. They might not be able to do that this time around, but could a refreshed Vincent Lecavalier be enough? So far, so good.
The Kings have won 10 of their past 15 games as they remain one of the West's most reliable and consistent teams. Vincent Lecavalier seems to be reenergized since joining the Kings, too, with four goals over his last six games.
The Kings took care of one of the big off-ice distractions for the team by signing Anze Kopitar to a long-term extension. It's not that it really was distracting to them, as they have maintained a big lead in the Pacific, but it eases any concern that they'd lose their top forward.
A 7-2-1 run over their last 10 games has the Kings still soaring above the competition in the Pacific. They have an 11-point advantage on second-place Arizona and recently added some serviceable depth by acquiring Vincent Lacavalier and Luke Schenn.
The Kings had their five-game winning streak snapped by the Colorado Avalanche Monday, but continue to play at a high level this season. That's especially true of Jonathan Quick who went 10-2-0 over December and put up a .929 save percentage.
Jonathan Quick recently picked up his 40th career shutout, which ties him for the record for shutouts by an American goalie. He's having a strong season with a 19-9-1 record and .919 save percentage as the Kings continue to run away with the Pacific.
The Kings are 8-3-2 over the last month. Reports suggest Anze Kopitar and the club are closing in on a new long-term extension as well. He has nine points in his last 10 games, too. They'll be relieved when the ink dries on that deal.
The Kings have looked incredibly impressive while sweeping their recent four-game homestand. That was a pretty great way to head into a six-game Eastern road swing.
This season has basically been the "Return of the Kings." At 14-8-1, they lead the Pacific Division, rallied to an impressive win over old nemesis Chicago and easily are the league's best team in possession.
The Kings are 2-2-0 on their current trip and have maintained a hold on the top spot in the Pacific Division. The way the teams in the Pacific are playing right now -- with the exception of San Jose -- the Kings might have a walk to the division title.
Preseason Power Rankings
A pair of ugly losses to start the year is a bigger cause for concern for the Kings than it might be for other clubs. Nine goals against over the first two games is a dreadful way to come back from the disappointment of 2014-15.
