Back in the Richards and Carter era at some point it used to be the other way round. Disappointing losses at home, players blinded by the light and overwhelmed by high expectations on home ice coming up with outstanding performances when playing elsewhere.
The current team is struggling with their transition game. Away you normally have the home team coming at you with speed, pressuring the defense and it takes a fast and precise transition to create scoring chances on the other end once you acquire the puck. And they are just not good enough in this area.
imagine of Schenn didnt save Bryz's bacon last sunday and that puck went in with 13 seconds left last night. Probably pretty fortunate to win both.
Still dont like how they are playing. Bryz did step up anyway last night.
edit: Also, Carter only joined the Kings later and the Kings also didn't have a good third line on paper. If by any chance, Kreider decides to go on a tear in the playoffs, that could also change the entire thing.
