The Los Angeles Kings suffered a rough loss on Saturday, losing to the Detroit Red Wings by a final score of 8-2. The Kings are now 3-7-0 over their last 10 games and trying to find some sustained traction as 2011 winds down.
This week's schedule has the Kings wrapping up the final game of a three-game road trip before a home game against one divisional rival and a road game against another. All three games are scheduled to be televised on FS-W.
Monday, December 19 will have the Kings visiting the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team that is right in the middle of the pack in the Northeast Division. The puck is scheduled to drop at 4:00 PM PST.
The Kings will then be home in Los Angeles on Thursday, December 22, as they will take on their Southern California and divisional rivals, the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks are one of the worst teams in the NHL right now and are playing like it. That game is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM PST.
The Kings will then immediately hit the road to take on division rival San Jose Sharks on Friday, December 23. San Jose is chasing the Dallas Stars for first place in the Pacific Division. Friday's game will begin at 7:00 PM PST.
