While its still too early to hit the panic/reset button, let's also keep in mind that a quarter of the season has passed.
After 11 more games, the Kings will reach the midway point of the season. So these next 11 games are going to be critical in where this team positions itself in the standings. There isn't a whole lot of leeway in a 48-game schedule.
This team can't afford to take a month off then play .500 hockey the rest of the season. Otherwise, they'll be watching playoff hockey from the comfort of their homes come April. After making the playoffs for three consecutive seasons, I would consider missing the playoffs a gigantic step backwards for a team that was supposed to trend upwards.
