Update: After this game, the Kings will have played 18 home games and only eight on the road, an imbalance that will tilt the other way in February and March. Being at home didn't help them against Columbus last season: they lost both games at Staples Center. Columbus' Raffi Torres was scheduled to undergo knee surgery this week.
