MayorsManor Live Radio: Kings-Blues GM2 preview with Helene Elliott

Helene Elliott LA Times

We’ve already been joined by a slew of guests this week – including Jim Fox, Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period and Jonathan Davis of Fox Sports West – but we still have more for you!

Today we’re checking in with Helene Elliott of the LA Times.  She joins us from St. Louis and will share all the skinny from today’s morning skates, for both the Kings and Blues.  Plus, we’ll get her take on the recent line juggling being used by coach Darryl Sutter, talk about what’s going on with Anze Kopitar, revisit Jonathan Quick‘s play in Game 1, talk about Dustin Brown‘s comments, debate the merits of Jake Muzzin, get her opinions on Keaton Ellerby, try to figure out why Dwight King is on the second line, evaluate the improving play of Trevor Lewis, speculate on a possible return from Alec Martinez, exchange a few laughs over some comments by Blues coach Ken Hitchcock – and then we’ll wrap up with some NHL Awards talk, specifically talking about the Hart and Norris Trophies.

It’s everything you need to know going into Game 2 later tonight.  So, listen up…
