No. 22: Los Angeles Kings

Previous: No. 24

Record: 30-27-6 (66 points)

The Kings thanked Peter Budaj for saving their season by sending him across the country in a trade for Ben Bishop. Dean Lombardi is doing Dean Lombardi things with this move. The Kings are out of the playoffs right now and are 3-5-2 in their last 10. Their issue is scoring goals and a lack of goaltending.
