The Monday Jan 4th game is a 6PM start due to it being a nationally televised game on Versus. 9PM is the latest they want any west coast game starting or they lose too many east coast viewers. BTW - it's been years since any national broadcast outlet has televised a regular season Kings *home game* nationally. You'd have to go back to the days of ESPN and even then it's been years (if it's happened at all).
That's all reasonable.
Weekend 6PM starts are fine (although the changeover from matinee basketball must be tough). Six PM probably makes a lot more sense for the barkeeps and restaurateurs at LA Live, too.
For weeknights, even 7PM is pushing it.
