The Los Angeles Kings are about to spend a lot of time in airplanes and hotels.
We’re not talking about one, long road trip either. In the next month and a half, the Kings will play 20 games total, with all but five away from Staples Center.
Tonight, they kick off a five-game trip in Philadelphia. They have a six-game trip in mid-December, then a four-game jaunt right after Christmas.
So far, the Kings have only played five road games (4-1-0), versus 12 at home (7-5-0).
“Yeah, we’ve been at home a lot, so I think it’s good to get on the road,” Jake Muzzin told L.A. Kings Insider. “It’s kind of a different feel going into games, you know you’re coming into a battle. You just want to come in, check in, get your two points and check out. We’ve done well on the road, and we’ve got to continue doing well.”
