Hockey has a long season and teams playing through injuries to key players (overcoming adversity) is what championship teams and contenders do. That said, these two injuries occuroing at the same time is a real test for the boys, and the remaining guys need to step up BIG.

Kopitar needs to reasssert himself, as he did against Nashville. Greener can step it up as well, and I think the Kings D is solid enough that we can hold the fort until Mitchell returns. This Gives Muzzin the oportunity to develop more and maybe prove he should remain here.

The effect of the injury to Poni is more difficult to gauge, but the depth of the team should help, and both Schenn and the Big Dog hopefully each get the chance to show they belong as well.

If we truly are as good as we've been, if we are the team we think we are, if we are really contenders and possibly a Championship team, it starts here, with not just keeping up the level of play, but taking it up to whole 'nother level.

Go KINGS GO!!!
