KINGS IN THE HUNT AGAIN
THE KINGS weren’t able to repeat as Cup champions, but a return to the final is reachable again. They have the horses to get the job done: Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter, Dustin Brown, Mike Richards and Justin Williams. They’ll insert rookie Tyler Toffoli into a prominent role. The blueline is among the NHL’s best, especially on the right side with Drew Doughty and Slava Voynov.
