King Must Now Battle Their Past Too

from Bill Plaschke of the LA Times,

No, Kings, no!

Three days after having the Stanley Cup on the end of their sticks, the Kings skated onto the thinnest of ice Saturday, slushing toward disbelief, skidding into a serious sweat.

In a series against the New Jersey Devils that should have been completed by now, those flames curling across the Prudential Center ice came alive, and their heat is real.

In the Kings’ race against 45 years’ worth of demons, the demons are gaining.

On a night when they could have been carrying the Cup, they were hitting the post. They were hitting a crossbar. They were watching a goal score on a puck that hit their defenseman’s back. And they just kept getting hit, and hit, and hit.
