Since the back to back losses to Winnipeg and the Rangers in the second and third games of the season, the Kings have made a nice little turnaround and gone 3-0. There was a noticeable difference in the team's sharpness, speed, and support of each other on ice. So what changed?
Obviously two, maybe not big, but minor changes in personnel happened with Alec Martinez replacing...

Itâs July 16th and the Los Angeles Kings have avoided any real headlines in the free agency period thus far.

Alec Martinez just breathed a sign of relief.
Davis Drewiske brings his Stanley Cup ring to a team that hasn't won a Stanley Cup since... they beat the Kings. Maybe he'll be THEIR good luck charm.
Solid #6 - nothing fancy - will get his 11-12 minutes.

This was a hard legal hit by former Miami RedHawk and current Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alex Martinez put a monstrous hit on former Fighting Sioux and current New Jersey Devils forward Travis Zajac during the 05:22 mark of the second period.
