The Los Angeles Kings hit the 10-game mark last night, and with the pressure to perform at a high level riding on the team, they have come away 6-2-2.
So it's a pretty good start out in La La Land.
Anze Kopitar is playing well, Mike Richards is fitting in nicely and Jonathan Quick has been fantastic. However, with the Western Conference being the beast that it is, everyone needs to be on their A-game.
It's hard to be critical so early in the season of any player, but there are a few on the Kings who need to jump to the next level to keep them sitting among the top of the Western Conference.
