NHL.com continues its preview of the 201314 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.
After coming up short in defense of their first Stanley Cup championship last season, the Los Angeles Kings are ready to skate a new path to a familiar place this season.
"It's not so much recapture the feeling [of winning the Cup in 2012]," Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told NHL.com, "it's writing a new chapter."
The Kings already know how the new chapter should end. It includes a celebration in downtown Los Angeles followed by a summer with Stanley. That's what they experienced in 2012.
