The Los Angeles Kings started out quick and strong at the beginning of the season but soon faltered. Their failure to keep their winning ways cost them their coach as the team dismissed head coach Terry Murray Monday.
Their latest four-game losing streak didn’t help matters but for now assistant coach John Stevens will serve as interim coach. The Kings decided they needed a change as the team went 8-11-3 in their last 22 games, sinking them to fourth place in the division.
The anemic Kings still have time to save the season. In fact, I believe with a nice fire under them this team can make the playoffs (dependent on their goalies) and go a couple rounds deep.
