The Kings have a 13-12-4 record despite Jonathan Quick’s
brilliant play this season. Ultimately their problem has been their offense, which largely hasn’t clicked. Their major off-season acquisition, Mike Richards
was doing well before he suffered a concussion, but Dustin Brown
and Justin Williams
have both suffered a noticeable drop off in production. Drew Doughty
has also declined significantly this season with just eight points in 24 contests. The Kings are last in the NHL with just 65 goals scored and just Richards and Anze Kopitar
have more than eight goals. We’ll see if Stevens, who previously served as the Philadelphia Flyers’ head coach when Richards and Simon Gagne
were on the team, will be the answer.
