Nothing worse than a 1 PM Saturday game against Phoenix or Nashville.
That's the thing, though; back in the early 2000s, they weren't playing Phoenix (who seemed to always beat the Kings here, anyway...well, 'cept for opening night 2002) and Nashville; they were playing Colorado, Vancouver, Edmonton, Anaheim, etc. And as to the traffic; maybe I just got unlucky (quite possible), but I always felt the 110/405 S was much worse on Saturday night as opposed to Sat. day.

Agreed here. Then again, a victory over the Avs in Denver wouldn't be a bad way to end the season....
