That Was One of the Best Losses I Have Ever Seen

And here’s why: 1) I watched the TSN feed. Those guys were effusive in their praise of the Kings in general and of Doughty specifically.

The Hockey News: Western Conference predictions

10. Los Angeles. I hate for you to think I’m underestimating the Kings, because I’m not. The job Terry Murray did behind L.A.’s bench last year was phenomenal, their blueline has the potential to be one of the league’s best and individual talents such as Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty are only getting…
