EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings’ practice schedule is on thin ice these days while power outages plague the neighborhood around their training complex.
The Kings were forced to cancel the on-ice portion of practice Monday for the second time this month because the ice at the Toyota Sports Center wasn’t playable.
The area just southeast of Los Angeles International Airport has endured multiple power outages in October. The training complex is also home to the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Kings didn’t know about the bad ice until it was too late to find another rink for practice. They are participating in a charity golf tournament Tuesday, which means they won’t get back on ice until Wednesday.
Los Angeles has won two straight games after losing three straight to start the season.
