Puck Possession and Kings Rank High

Interesting Articletoday about the Kings being tops again in the league in puck possession time and why that's a huge benefit.
The author went onto point out that the Kings were one of the leagues best last year and that is why he wasn't surprised at their post season success and how they made them a lethal opponent

From that Article:

So far this the Kings are attempting more than 58 percent of the shots when the game is close, and more than 60 percent when the game is tied. They are in the top-two in both areas. They were in the top-four in both areas last season.

Sometimes in the NHL a team can play well and not get the desired result (we saw it earlier this week with Calgary and Chicago), and the Kings have been better than their early season record indicates
