Los Angeles and Columbus – or, #lumbus, as some Kings fans refer to Ohio’s NHL team – are a pair of teams with shared personnel backgrounds. The Kings traded for Jeff Carter and Marian Gaborik in 2012 and 2014 – and won the Stanley Cup both years after riding a post-trade offensive surge. Jack Johnson has three assists in seven games and is a workhorse on Columbus’ back end, while Adam Cracknell, who attended training camp with the Kings, has appeared in two games with the Blue Jackets.

The Kings piled on another win to the Mother Of All Homestands with a 2-0 triumph over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday in a game that could have featured a wider margin of victory if not for some fine goaltending by Jhonas Enroth and a few missed nets in the first period.
