The Los Angeles Kings are off to a slow start in 2013-14, and there is plenty of blame to go around. From goaltending to the lackluster defense and a poor effort up front, the Kings have not played like the team we've come to know.
Or have they?
The Kings have had great success in the playoffs the past two years, but in the regular season, they have underperformed. Luckily there are still 78 games to play, so L.A. has a great opportunity to jump to the top of the Pacific Division and stay there.
With that said, here are the biggest takeaways from the Kings' start to the 2013-14 NHL season.
