It’s another day game for the LA Kings, something coach Darryl Sutter said he doesn’t think they struggle with. So, we’ll see if they can continue the positive momentum they’ve shown over the last five games. It will be a challenge because, as Anze Kopitar said yesterday, the Kings will be facing a speedy Avalanche [...]
After taking yesterday off, the Kings returned to the ice at their practice facility in El Segundo earlier this morning. Following a 45-minute on-ice session and then a meeting with the team, coach Darryl Sutter shared the following with the gathered media…
- On if he’s encouraged by the defense in the last two games: “It’s [...]
Earlier today Kings’ Vice President and Assistant GM Ron Hextall was on Hockey Night in Canada radio, a show hosted by Elliotte Friedman and former goaltender Kelly Hrudey. They touched upon a myriad of topics in their 15-minute conversation, including Drew Doughty, Keaton Ellerby, Dustin Penner, Jonathan Quick and more. For those who missed the show, [...]
The Saddledome in Calgary certainly has not been a kind building to the Kings over the last decade. In fact, at one point, the Kings had lost ten straight games there. However, a 4-3 shootout win in February 2011 started a streak of three straight wins. Can they make it four tonight?

Trevor Lewis is a former first round draft pick. And NHL General Managers usually don’t use their top selection on a forward who is going to play a largely defensive role. Guys going that early in the draft are typically snipers.

- Jonathan Quick was the first goalie off the ice at this morning’s pre-game skate. So, he looks to be the Kings starter. In 12 games vs. the Oilers, Quick has posted a [...]
Last season the Kings went 2-1-1 vs. the Oilers, but that seems like such a long time ago. The more recent memory is of the Kings game in Edmonton just a few weeks ago – where there was some crazy officiating all night long and they eventually lost when Sam Gagner scored in overtime. However, the most lasting image [...]
Sunday afternoon the suddenly surging Kings will get a chance to extract a little revenge on the red-hot Blackhawks in Chicago. It was just last month that the two teams met in Los Angeles on opening day of the 2013 season. That game was a decisive win for the road team and the Kings are [...]
When Kings’ coach Darryl Sutter gave a major shake-up to the team’s lines last weekend there were some odd pairings on paper. However, the results worked out fine, perhaps even better than expected. LA played a solid game in Detroit on Sunday and then picked up a dominating win in St. Louis on Monday.
Here’s some [...]
As part of our preview for tonight’s Kings v Blue Jackets game we played Word Association with five Los Angeles players, asking them to react to the names of four Columbus players. Like usual, these were all done one-on-one, so no player heard what the other guy said – which is interesting when you compare their answers…
