It would be darn near impossible to find a hockey fan in Slovenia who isn't rooting for the Kings. Call it the Anze Kopitar factor. "There is actually a pretty big buzz back there," said Kopitar, the Kings' 24-year-old center. "I've been going on online and reading some of the news from back there. The Kings are pretty big." And Kopitar? "There's a little more focus on me," Kopitar said. "It's nice for hockey to get a little attention back home."
