Halloween costume pics, stories from the LA Kings party

On Tuesday, October 25, there may have been some other players dressed up as the Kings because coach Terry Murray‘s team just didn’t look like themselves in a 3-0 loss at home to New Jersey.
A few nights earlier though, the Kings did actually trade in their sweaters for a variety of different costumes at the […]

Jarret Stoll – LA Kings players were ‘fed up’ with things

With two assists last night, Jarret Stoll doubled his output for the season…and reached a milestone, his 300th NHL point.
It was a ‘team win,’ with four different players scoring goals and several guys having breakout performances.
After the game, Stoll shared a few thoughts…
On the overall game – “We played a little bit desperate. We […]

How to fix the Kings – the line combos Murray should use

They call him the juggler.
Kings coach Terry Murray has been known to mix up the line combinations, to the point he recently joked about keeping a line together ‘for three or four more games.’
However, one thing that isn’t too funny is the Kings lack of scoring this season. Over the summer, they […]

What I’ve learned so far… by Penguins dman Kris Letang

Penguins Kris Letang – sharp dresser

ZZ Top were right. Every girl’s crazy about a sharp dressed man.
Just ask center Jarret Stoll.
Most of his Kings’ teammates have selected him as ‘best dressed’ guy in the room – although Brad Richardson disagrees. Regardless of who can lay claim to being the cat with the sharpest threads […]

Penguins at LA Kings – Pregame Primer with Tony Granato

It’s too bad the Kings won’t be wearing their white jerseys tonight. Sans the logo on the front, they’re like modern versions of what Tony Granato wore with the team during the 1993 Stanley Cup Final.
Nearly 20 years later, he’s back in town for tonight’s game at Staples Center. It’s a building Granato played in […]

Sorry ladies, he’s off the market now. Kings goaltender Jonathan Bernier was recently engaged, so he still has plenty to learn in the coming years.
A happy wife is a happy life – that’s all I’m saying JB.
However, at the rink and around his teammates he’s already picked […]

Like the LA Kings, the ‘What I’ve learned so far’ series has had the last few days off – but, it’s back today!
Recently, we’ve heard some interesting comments from Drew Doughty, Kevin Westgarth, Ethan Moreau and several others.
Now, it’s time for the multi-purpose man, Brad Richardson, to step up and take […]

What I’ve learned so far… by LA Kings blueliner Matt Greene

Now entering the ring, standing 6-foot-3 and weighing in at 232 pounds, originally from Michigan, now repping the South Bay – he’s the two-time comedy champion and perhaps the only man who loves blood more than Abdullah the Butcher, it’s Matt Greene.
Through the ‘What I’ve learned so far…’ series, […]

Because you demanded it…

Many of you were on your way home from work when it happened.
Knowing that Kings fans wouldn’t want to miss out on this, we worked closely with the NHL over the last few days… and after concocting an elaborate agreement, we were able to pull video of Scott Parse‘s goal Thursday night vs. Dallas.
Defenseman Slava […]

What I’ve learned so far… by LA Kings dman Alec Martinez

Perhaps if Drew Doughty wasn’t out injured the last two weeks, the play of Alec Martinez would be under more scrutiny. Instead, most of the blueline focus has been on rookie Slava Voynov.
It’s not that Martinez has been particularly bad for the Kings. However, coach Terry Murray did […]
