If you hear Kings ex­ec­u­tives talk­ing about mov­ing the start time of games back an hour, you’ll know there’s some­thing to this stat: Los An­ge­les is the worst team in the league when it comes to goal dif­fer­en­tial in the first pe­riod – even worse than teams that fell out of play­off con­tention in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. The Kings have been ten­ta­tive out of the gate all sea­son, and need­ing to rally af­ter 20 min­utes has been con­stant. They score the third-fewest goals in the first pe­riod and al­low the fourth-most. Does an 8:30 start time work for y’all?
