When your team’s goalie gets 29 saves, you have to be happy with the effort. Unfortunately for Los Angeles Kings fans, the offense wasn’t able to back the strong play from Peter Budaj and the team ended up losing to the Boston Bruins on December 18 by a final of 1-0. Los Angeles managed only 18 shots to the Bruins’ 30, so it’s not surprising that the Kings were the team to falter. This game was part of a long road trip for LA, as the team doesn’t return home until a December 31 game against the San Jose Sharks. Tickets for that New Year’s Eve game are still available and start as low as $56.

It’s a long trip from Toronto to LA, and the Los Angeles Kings proved on November 8 that it’s better to be the team that doesn’t have to travel.

With less than a month before the 2016-2017 NHL season begins, Los Angeles Kings fans will soon find out what this year’s team will look like and how they will all play together.

If that’s going to happen, it will depend largely on how well Teddy Purcell is able to fill in for Milan Lucic, the Kings’ star forward who left during the offseason. Preseason games are right around the corner as Los Angeles welcomes the Arizona Coyotes to the Staples Center on September 26. Tickets for that game start as low as $11.
