It shouldn't come as a surprise to fans of the Los Angeles Kings that their team sits ninth in the Western Conference. It's becoming a trend. The Kings struggle in the regular season at times but make the playoffs, and from there they dominate.
This season seems like it will be no different.
The Kings are on a bit of a hot streak as of late, winning five of their past seven games. They are without Jeff Carter, who remains on injured reserve with a foot injury, but captain Dustin Brown has stepped up after getting off to a slow start to the 2013-14 season.
With that in mind, there are a number of good teams and individual player stats out of L.A.
Here are the Kings' five most impressive stats thus far this season.
