Jim Hughson: California boasts NHL's royalty

Hockey Night in Canada play-by-play man Jim Hughson says there are a few places NHL teams are weary of travelling to, and they're all on the West coast. 

Any clubs embarking on road trips going through the state of California and passing through San Jose, Anaheim or Los Angeles have their work cut out for them against those top-notch teams.  

Watch the Anaheim Ducks tackle the Los Angeles Kings in the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series on Hockey Night in Canada on CBC Saturday night from Dodger Stadium (CBC,, 10 p.m. ET).
