From what I’ve observed over the last few years, Jack Johnson is one of those players who hates to lose more than he likes to win. When the Kings are victorious, there’s usually a small smile or two and a ‘on to the next one’ attitude in the room afterwards. But, when they [...]
Although the Kings out-shot the Wild 44-24 and out-hit them 46-22, they gave up a season-high four goals (for the third time) and that was too much for an offense that’s unable to score more than two goals right now. Final score 4-2, and here’s what they were saying in the Minnesota locker room [...]
Quick highlights from LA Kings coach Terry Murray’s postgame presser…
On the overall game – “Those [early period goals] are killers. You have a team [Wild] that is a really good defensive team. They’re the number one team in the league. They get a lead, they’re going to protect it; they have in the last games [...]

After the Kings defeated the Wild 5-2 in front of another sell out crowd at Staples Center on Saturday night, here was some of the reaction coming from both locker rooms…

In what could be classified as a franchise reboot, the Ontario Reign took to the ice this weekend for a pair of home games to kick off the new season.
Just about everything was new, except the jerseys.
Gone was fiery and temperamental head coach Karl Taylor and in was the seemingly always jolly Jason Christie. [...]
It wasn’t a cost cutting move, but the Kings cut back on overtime yesterday.
In their three previous games with Minnesota this season they needed more than three periods to determine an outcome. Last night, they downed the Wild 4-2 in just 60 minutes.
Below are some post game notes followed by video highlights…
