Kings defenseman Alec Martinez said the ice was soft near the benches during practice Friday at the Dodger Stadium outdoor rink where Los Angeles and Anaheim will play tonight.

The humidity was about 65% Friday, higher than earlier this week and enough to make players sweat profusely. "You get that little glossiness on top. It gets a little wet," Martinez said of the ice. "The puck sticks a little bit." But he added: "I was impressed. It was pretty good." NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly acknowledged the ice was "a little softer and wetter for Kings practice than we would have liked." He said the maintenance crew will make adjustments and that tonight's 7:15 p.m. start time should create a favorable climate. "We don't anticipate that ice conditions will be an issue with this game," Daly said. Forecasts call for a daytime high temperature of 77 degrees and 31% humidity. The ice will remain covered by an insulated blanket during the day.
