No. 24: Los Angeles Kings

Previous: No. 17

Record: 22-21-4 (48 points)

You don’t lose four straight games and get to hold serve in these rankings. Not when so many teams have 47 or 48 points. The Kings started off this run by falling to the lowly Lightning before dropping games to San Jose (understandable), the Islanders (not so much) and the Rangers (very understandable). Jonathan Quick cannot return soon enough.
