Returning the Los Angeles Kings to the playoffs will not only be good for hockey in southern California, but inject some excitement into a league that is struggling to keep its place in the American sports market, says new coach Marc Crawford.

For the NHL to increase its fan base in the United States, the league needs strong franchises in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, Crawford said during a telephone conference call Wednesday.
