Two men in and as soon as a D to D pass is made by the opposition, they are right on top of the guy receiving the puck. The Kings are not only not giving up their own blue line, they are not giving up the red line or the opposition's blue line when they are trying to get out of their own zone. That wasn't supposed to happen any more when the NHL did away with the rule against the 2-line pass.
The backcheck has been huge as well, they just smother opponents with it.
