Jeff Carter Having Major Impact on Underachieving L.A. Kings Since Deadline Deal (Video)

Before the season, the Los Angeles Kings were expected to be one of the top teams in the NHL. Some 70-plus games later and the Kings are fighting desperately to even grab a playoff spot.

This has clearly been an underwhelming season for the guys from LA, but at least one positive has arisen through all the mediocrity. The team added forward Jeff Carter from Columbus at the NHL trade deadline, and the young gunner has had a major impact on the Kings’ culture and energy.

The Instigators tried to break down the Kings season on Thursday with two good minutes of analysis. Tom Caron, Barry Pederson and the crew focused in on Carter’s influence on the team and the Kings outlook against the Bruins this weekend.

Check out the video above for all of the instigating talk about Carter and the Kings, as the B’s look to pay them a visit Saturday night.
