I will definitely miss out on seeing the Kings play the first three teams on this list whether here or away.
Yes, but.... I think this might be the
schedule from a travel standpoint the Kings have EVER had.
- The Kings will play 67% of their games in the Pacific Time Zone (55 out of 82 games)
- The have two actual 5-game homestands, but if you consider the Pond a theoretical home game (and from a travel standpoint, it really is a home game), they'll actually have three 5-game homestands (Dec. 8-17) along with three 4-game homestands.
- January they'll play 13 out of 15 games in the Pacific Time Zone including the first game in Feb (@PHO). The 2 games
in PST are in BOS and BUF and there are 3 days off before and after that measley 2-game east coaster.
- 15 of the final 17 games of the season are in the Pacific Time Zone
If the Kings can figure out a way to stay healthy (and that's a tall order I know), they'll be competitive from an energy standpoint going into the playoffs.
As a fan who wants to see this team a Cup worse than anything, I'm happy to sacrifice a few nice matchups for a more rested, energetic team in April, May and (hopefully) June.
