I suspect that because of the Cup win, the NHL expects that all games will be a big draw. So they stick the Kings with more games against the poorer draws to help those markets that might not sell as well. Makes sense that when you can't balance the schedule, you put the weaker teams in cities more often where ticket sales won't be an issue. Whether or not this is the case, remains to be seen, but I suspect that it will be true.
