There’s no place like home, at least as far as one Kings player is concerned

Anze Kopitar said Saturday that it was good to go home for two days and nights instead of staying in San Jose between Games 1 and 2. It was better to sleep in one’s own better, preferable to staying in a downtown San Jose hotel and “avoiding the circus,” as the Kings’ leading scorer during the regular season phrased it.

Wait, sleepy downtown San Jose is a circus?

Kopitar simply meant it was beneficial to be away from the playoff hype machine. The normal routine of home was a far better place to be than to be sitting around the hotel watching hockey highlights on the TV and eating, drinking and thinking about the games all day and night.
