EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- So much for jet lag and recovering from a cross-country flight in preparation for an NHL record-tying 26th Stanley Cup Playoff game for the Los Angeles Kings. A handful of regulars took the ice Thursday despite arriving back in Los Angeles at 3 a.m. local time.
The flight from New York?
"I had a good Chilean sea bass," center Jarret Stoll said. "It was good. It was great, actually."
The Kings were in a calm, confident and somewhat playful mood one day after they narrowly missed winning the Cup for the second time in three seasons in a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.
