Fill In The Blank: Game 19 – feedback from Kings loss in Vancouver

It’s time for a little input from the readers.
Saturday’s trip to Vancouver wasn’t as exciting for the Kings as their last visit, when Jarret Stoll scored an overtime / series-ending goal to kill the Canucks Stanley Cup dreams. This time around, they played see-saw hockey for the first 35 minutes before falling behind by a pair of [...]

Darryl Sutter and special guests play Canucks Word Association

Earlier today we posted our usual pre-game Word Association article, where a handful of Kings players took on four members of the opposing team.
Now, as promised, we have a little something extra for tonight’s game in Vancouver.
Prior to the team plane taking off on Friday, we asked coach Darryl Sutter, along with broadcasters Bob Miller and [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 19 – Kings at Canucks

Yes, Jeff Carter has scored in five straight games – but, Justin Williams didn’t go with the Kings’ leading goal scorer when we asked who will get the first marker vs. Vancouver tonight.
“Me! I’d like to just get one,” he said. “So, I’m going to say me.”
Dwight King has other ideas. He’s been ‘working’ (as Darryl Sutter [...]

Dwight King and a Roberto Luongo look-a-like contest

One of the reasons we’re so fond of our Word Association segment is that it can be akin to sifting for gold. Amid the typical media questions – that some players find ridiculously boring – the format can suddenly produce a hidden treasure. And that’s what happened as we gathered comments to use in our [...]

Kings players talk hatred for and rivalry with the Canucks

As we’ve written about many times over the last few years, most of the Kings players don’t like those Canucks very much. But, on a scale of 1-to-10, would they put their disdain at a 10, like Drew Doughty does?
“Yeah they could be up there for sure,” said Colin Fraser. “For one, they have a lot [...]

Kings players on which Canucks defenseman comes to mind

Last hour we posted some Word Association with seven members of the LA Kings, where they took on four big names from the Vancouver Canucks.  As always, there were some very interesting answers.
Now, let’s go in a slightly different direction.
We threw a twist into things and asked “When you hear ‘Vancouver defenseman,’ which player comes [...]

Word Association: Kings players take on the hated Canucks

Drew Doughty was the first Kings player to openly talk about his hatred of the Canucks a few years ago.  Since then, several others have gone on the record with their disdain for the gang from Vancouver.  However, the other thing most commonly noted is that they’re a good team, usually followed by comments about [...]

What will Sutter say? Talking Martinez, goalies and fuel on Friday

It’s time for another round of the always awesome, sometimes confusing and rarely disappointing – What will Sutter say? Today’s edition of quotes came following the Kings practice at TSC. Well, quite a bit after because the coach wanted to shower before meeting with the media – as the team was preparing to head off to [...]

Fill in The Blank: Game 5 – Kings v Canucks

We’re going to test out a new feature here on MayorsManor and see where it goes.  It’s actually something we used occasionally on twitter last season and it’s received some decent response.
In a nutshell, following a Kings game – win or lose – we’ll post a nearly complete sentence and ask fans to finish it [...]

Quotes from Canucks locker room after losing to Kings in shootout

At Staples Center Monday night, the Canucks led the Kings for nearly all of regulation. However, LA bested Vancouver in most statistical categories - including shots on goal (LA 28, VAN 23), hits (35 to 23), faceoffs (52% to 48%)…and goals, 3-2.
