Update – Kings’ Coach Darryl Sutter, memorably, recently summed up what would face his team at the end of this four-game trip. The Kings defeated Edmonton, 4-1, on Friday night and immediately flew to Minnesota after the game to face the Wild on Saturday night. “That’s illegal,” Sutter said, speaking of the back-to-back games and travel schedule. For the record, he was not smiling. Forward Jason Zucker, formerly of the University of Denver, made his NHL debut for the Wild on Thursday against the Panthers.
