Tidbits from Carcillo, Carter and Greene at Dodger game

Over the past few years, the Kings and Dodgers have formed quite a partnership, with each team hosting the other for at least one game per season.

Today, Kings’ forward Brad Richardson turned 28 years old.
So, it seems like as good of a day as any to out him once and for all.
