Game 1 - Kings v. Coyotes

What a terrible way to start a season. After a reasonably entertaining and somewhat hopeful preseason, the Kings started the game with a big exciting 6-3 loss. I can say one thing without question. It was a terrible, terrible game to watch. From the outset the Kings looked outclassed, and Drew Doughty, the great white hope on defense from last year, played a truly atrocious game. In general it was an embarrassment. I'm not going to get into too much detail at the moment, but suffice it to say, if the rest of the season continues like this, we are going to be in for some rough sailing. That said, here's the box score:

Kings - 3
Coyotes - 6
Kings Scorers: Anze Kopitar (1), Alexander Frolov (1), Drew Doughty (1)
Coyotes Scorers: R. Vrbata (2), M. Lombardi (1), D. Winnik (1), S. Upshall (1), R. Lang (1)
