Standings after tonight’s games, looking only at the number of points each team has blown out of the total points possible.

Take a look at last year’s goalie stats sorted by wins. Notice…

Obviously

Smyth, who was traded to the Kings from the Colorado Avalanche in July, likes what he has seen from his new team thus far. “I think what makes it is the guys here,” Smyth said. “The young guys, they make the locker room feel comfortable. Obviously, the older guys are here which is great but…
