LA Kings coach Todd McLellan recalled the “eerie” feeling of playing the NHL’s final game before pausing its season. They hosted Ottawa on March 11, right after the NBA halted a game due to Rudy Gobert’s COVID-19 symptoms. “As soon as that happened, the mood changed in the locker room. It became a little more eerie. Players’ minds were somewhere else,” he said. While two Ottawa players have since tested positive for COVID-19, McLellan said no one with the Kings' group has "showed any symptoms."
