Final Results: Team Mayor vs. Team Penner

Penner surgery Kings MayorsManor

Puck Probability: Predictions for Devils at Kings, Jan. 14

Elias Devils

Martin Brodeur will not be in goal tonight for New Jersey.

Add in Lou Lamoriello now serving as the head coach and you’re left wondering, who are these Devils? What is […]

Time for Change: Kings Lineup Suggestions

Sutter on Kings bench

‘Oh October, where have you gone,’ is likely something Darryl Sutter often wonders. Back in the opening month of the season his Kings had the hottest line in hockey, with the trio of Tanner Pearson-Jeff Carter-Tyler Toffoli racking up 35 points in the first 11 games.

Regardless, we’re always here to help. And with that in mind, we […]

Puck Probability: Odds for Kings at Predators, November 25

Weber Shea Nashville Predators NHL

Last season, each contest in the Kings-Predators three-game season series was decided by one goal. David Legwand potted a pair of goals for Nashville in one of those games and Slava Voynov scored the first goal in game one.

Soon after, he […]
