The Kings will get real familiar, real quick, with San Jose. The Kings and Sharks play Saturday (there) and Sunday (here) and the Sharks opened the season Thursday with an impressive 4-1 home victory over the Ducks.
Question: Did you get a chance to watch San Jose last night?
MURRAY: “I watched it this morning. Very good team, one of the premier teams in the league. They took the level of play to another level in the middle part of the first period. They got on the power play in the second and, wow, they moved the puck around and they were tremendous on the power play. They’ve got Blake back there last night and he’s loading up with seven shots on net, and they end up with 40 as a team. They have a real strong mentality right now, that they have something to prove, and they have started off in the right direction.”
