Kings down Red Bull Salzburg...barely
The Los Angeles Kings escaped embarrassment by narrowly defeating the EC Red Bull Salzburg 7-6 in exhibition play. Either Red Bull gave Salzburg wings or the Kings took their European foes for granted.
As a prelude to the NHL season opener at London's O2 Arena, the Kings are participating in the Red Bull Salute Tournament. They'll face off against Sweden's Farjestad BK tomorrow before heading off to the UK.
