In a video for the NHL's website, some Los Angeles Kings players are asked their favorite music for the drive to Staples Center. Two, perhaps surprisingly — including the team's enforcer, or designated fighter — reply "NPR." After a follow-up question, Davis Drewiske elaborates that he likes "Morning Becomes Eclectic" on 89.9. He takes a little ribbing about listening to NPR even though his wife hates it and he's a big sweaty hockey player, saying "I like to break a mental sweat, too." The enforcer, Kevin Westgarth, likes the "panacea" of topics covered on NPR. Uh, like most hockey locker-room "interviews" among teammates, it's mostly tongue-in-cheek between guys from the frozen north and east who spend seven months of the year together in LA.
