Fill in the Blank: Gm18 – readers react to Kings 2-1 win over Red Wings

It’s time for more input from the readers.
After coming out of the gates extremely slow on Wednesday night, the Kings trailed 1-0 when a fluky goal somehow made it past Jonathan Bernier – something he was still having trouble explaining after the game. Like they did on Monday against the Ducks though, the home team came out [...]

Jonathan Bernier – ‘Quicky is our number one, I’m not’

Bernier Jonathan LA Kings MayorsManor

Jonathan Quick did almost enough to beat the Red Wings in Detroit two weeks ago. He stopped 28 of 31 shots and didn’t allow a goal for nearly the last 45 minutes of regulation. But, moments after the Kings won a face off in the final seconds of the third period, the puck slipped between [...]

Red Wings may want some cheese with their post-game whining

- Henrik Zetterberg on the overall game: “This was a tough one. We played really well in the first period. We had really good penalty killing in the second. And then the third was pretty even. Unfortunately they [...]

Doughty Drew LA Kings - MayorsManor

First batch of quotes following the LA Kings 2-1 win over Detroit…
- Drew Doughty on recording seven hits tonight: “They have so many skilled guys that if you give them too much time and space they’re going to make you look foolish. Especially a guy like Datsyuk. I was pretty much against him every single [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 18 – Red Wings at Kings

If you’re going to play the odds tonight, Jeff Carter may be your guy.  Then again, maybe his hot streak will come to an end.  Same could be said for Dustin Brown.
On the flip side, maybe this is the night Anze Kopitar goes off and has four points.
But, they aren’t the only players you can pick for tonight’s [...]
