Is Matt Greene Coming to Twitter Soon?

After ‘When is Brayden Schenn going to play for the Kings again?’ and “Who’s starting in goal tomorrow night?’ – perhaps the question I get asked most often is ‘When is Matt Greene going to join twitter?’
So, I took the question to the man himself…
MM: Dustin Brown is on twitter, Dustin Penner says he’s thinking […]

Interview with Hockey’s #1 Prospect – Brayden Schenn

If there was a Justin Bieber of hockey, it most certainly would be Brayden Schenn.
Rarely does a pro prospect garner as much interest as Schenn has over the last year.
Like Bieber, he’s everywhere. Schenn’s world tour this season has seen him make stops in Los Angeles, Manchester, Buffalo, Brandon and now […]

Kyle Clifford Gives a Health Update, Responds to Westgarth

Two big news items coming out of practice today. One, Kevin Westgarth is not playing on the top line after all.  Of course he’s not!
Second, rookie Kyle Clifford was cleared and will be in the line-up tomorrow night versus San Jose.
Clifford spoke a little about each issue…
MM: First off, everybody wants to know – how […]

The Dream is Dead for Kevin Westgarth

You know the saying – when one door closes, another one opens.
Well, with Justin Williams unavailable (due to a shoulder injury sustained Monday night), Kings coach Terry Murray had a hole to fill on the top line with Dustin Penner and Anze Kopitar.
Sure, he could have gone with frequent fill-in Wayne Simmonds or the guy […]

Terry Murray on the new guy, Oscar Moller

With the injury to Justin Williams, the Kings recalled Oscar Moller from their AHL affiliate in Manchester this week.
In 59 games for the Monarchs this year Moller has scored 23 goals, second on the team (LW Bud Holloway leads with 25 goals). He also spent four games up with the Kings earlier this season, scoring […]

Interview with OHL Scoring Champion Tyler Toffoli

Heading into the NHL Draft last June many scouts had Tyler Toffoli pegged as a late first rounder. With some questioning his skating ability, he dropped a bit and when he was still sitting there mid-way through the second, Kings GM Dean Lombardi did his thing – ‘Dealer Dean’ traded his second and fourth round […]

Interview with WHL Scoring Champion Linden Vey

If you’ve been following along all season – of even half way paying attention – you know that many of the Kings prospects are having exceptional years.
Linden Vey, a fourth round pick in the 2009 NHL Draft, would have to rank right up at the top of the list, having just won the WHL scoring […]

Stoll and Quick Do Their Thing Again in the Shootout

Well, the Kings are getting better as the homestand rolls along.
Zero points on Thursday, one point Saturday and (finally) two points tonight. The games are also getting longer – going from regulation vs. the Blues to needing overtime against the Ducks…and then (finally) downing the Flames via a shootout.
In a game that was set up […]

Calgary Flames at LA Kings – Revisiting a Rivalry

For fans that have only been following the Kings since their move downtown to Staples Center, tonight’s game doesn’t mean much – other than the two points at stake in the Western Conference.
However, for long time fans, a game against the Flames stirs emotions from nearly 20 years ago when Calgary versus Los Angeles was […]

Westgarth on Fight Rules, Clifford’s KO, Scrap with Cam

On Friday we heard from Kings coach Terry Murray regarding the multiple fights in Thursday’s night game versus the St. Louis Blues.
He said he thought Kevin Westgarth’s scrap with Cam Janssen was “absolutely what the team needed” and said Kyle Clifford‘s injury was one of the “consequences of playing that role.”
Which is something I wanted […]
