A mere eleven games into the season, the Kings have accomplished two feats they have not been able to muster since the 2005-06 season:

Beat the Dallas Stars.

Win three in a row.

A 2-1 victory tonight was enough to do both. The feats don't amount to much, but they are worth noting for a team that has had its share of (very) hard times in the rebuilding process that commenced last year. Furthermore, the Kings are swiftly pulling themselves out of the nice-sized hole they dug for themselves in the early going. After a 1-5 start, the Kings are suddenly 5-6 with a nice bit of momentum to take into the rest of their home stand.
