Agreed, and that was always something the Kings were mediocre at, even when making the playoffs in previous years. The team wasn't very good at protecting home ice. They have been MUCH better at it since Sutter publicly called out the players on the need to be better at home to the press.

Just a few more stat tidbits: the Kings under Sutter for just regular season games, discounting the awesome Cup run, have played at a 102 point pace over 82 games. Since the Carter trade, the team has performed at a 107 point pace. Not bad. Not bad at all.
