Also, another note on the forecheck: most teams play a 2-1-2 forecheck, which means the first guy goes in hard and takes the body while the second guy goes in right behind and tries to dig out the loose puck. When the Kings were successful earlier in the season, they were doing this right a majority of the time. It honestly seems now that they're playing a 1-2-2.

That might have something to do with the discontinuity on the breakouts and dump ins, and the team is just too spaced out to get a proper forecheck going so they resort to a passive one, but they're just letting teams walk right out of the zone with barely any pressure. That needs to be addressed like yesterday (or about a month ago).
