Off-Ice Roundup as the Kings practice in Edmonton
Tough one last night, Insiders.
In his own words, one of the worst games the Kings have played this season, no dancing on that score. 6-5 was the final score, and the Kings had a Grade A chance with 22 seconds left to force overtime, but a third-down comeback happened in the first 40 minutes, with Phil Danault rightly critical of the way the Kings started the game. game Todd McLellan used the word “shoddy” perhaps in acknowledgment of a live televised interview. It certainly wasn’t the type of performance the group envisioned after going 4-0-0, as several areas of the game that stood out in those four wins were far less effective in Calgary. As the Kings prepare to face Edmonton tomorrow evening, they’ll need to play more like the team that played down odd-man chances, otherwise we could be looking at an 11-10 game at Rogers Place. Or maybe it would be fun? No. With the progress they’ve shown lately in recovering from games like this, we’ll be confident they’ll do just that, and there’s sure to be a couple of focal points to clean up during today’s practice.
We’ll cover some stories after today’s skate, with the Kings just hitting the ice here in Edmonton to begin their first road practice of the season. Pretty ridiculous isn’t it? This will be road game #10 coming up tomorrow evening and we just got to see the team practice outside of El Segundo for the first time all season.
It feels a little strange to be back in Edmonton for the first time since Game 7. The last memory here at Rogers Place was a dejected exit from the building through Oilers fans celebrating their advance to Round 2. L ‘the next day I had COVID. Here you must avoid these two destinations tomorrow evening and Thursday afternoon. Today, we will gather here in Edmonton for a day of practice before a national broadcast tomorrow against the Oilers, where we will see their Reverse Retro jerseys.
Reverse throwbacks, you say?
It just so happens that the Kings version, worn for the first time in game action in Saturday’s win over Detroit, is on sale as of this morning at the Team LA store.
For the next five days, the shirts are available exclusively through the Team LA Store, with shirts available through this link. After that time, you can find the jersey where you regularly find your LA Kings jerseys. This looks like the LA Kings jersey I might want to frame and hang in my house one day.
Along the Reverse Retro line is an upcoming giveaway featuring an Adrian Kempe bobblehead, featuring the Reverse Retro shirt. Coming to Crypto.com Arena on Saturday, December 17th.
If you’re interested, myself, Jesse Cohen, and Matt McElroy of the AHL’s Ontario Reign did a league-wide draft of Reverse Retros, excluding the Kings. I won the Twitter poll handily, NBD, see what you think below.
LA Kings Holiday Ice
The Kings also announced today that the annual Holiday Ice show will return to LA Live starting Saturday, November 26 and running through Sunday, January 8, 2023. The organization will hold a “grand opening” ceremony before the Kings against Seattle. Kraken on Tuesday, November 29 at 4:45 p.m.

Thanks for consuming this content off the ice, I appreciate it here on this fine Tuesday morning, understanding that there is still some frustration from last night’s game. We park and walk and come back tomorrow.
