Despite being the least affected team by COVID postponements, this now gives the Kings a total of eight games in February. They’ll have a 13-day break between their first game of the month against the Detroit Red Wings and their return to play against the Oilers on the 15th.
This isn’t unexpected news, however, as the league opting out of Beijing Olympic action meant that they’d use the hole in the original schedule to make up the games that were postponed due to the league’s COVID-19 outbreak around the Christmas break.
