LA Kings closing in on NHL record




The Los Angeles Kings are closing in on an impressive all-time NHL record, something that hasn't been accomplished in nearly 20 seasons.





The Kings are currently 12-3-3, and hold down the second spot in the Pacific division just behind the Golden Knights. While they've struggled to win games at home (3-3-3), they remain undefeated on the road (9-0-0).


In fact, only one team has a better road win-streak to start a season in league history. The 2005-06 Buffalo Sabres, who won 10 straight road games to start a season.


After beating the Anaheim Ducks on Friday afternoon, they head home for a brief three-game home stand before returning to the road on December 5th, when they face the struggling Columbus Blue Jackets.


With a victory in Ohio that night, they'll be able to tie the all-time record at 10 road wins to start a season. They will then have an opportunity to break the record on December 7 against the Montreal Canadiens.





Not only are the Kings winning on the road, they've been crushing their opponents.


They've scored a total of 42 goals, while succeeding just 15 in their nine road appearances so far. They lead the league in road goal differential with a +27. The second closest team being the Rangers at +14.


Will the Kings break the record?
