Where do we even begin, as the hours countdown to the second and final meeting of the season between the Kings and Flyers? Many of the storylines have been well documented over the past few seasons, so let’s try to stay current. Although we had Philadelphia as the team coming out of the Eastern Conference […]
Flyers’ forwards Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn made their returns to MayorsManor on Friday, after a few year absence since being dealt by the Kings to Philadelphia in the Mike Richards trade. Following up on those pre-game comments, here’s what both players had to say after shutting out LA 2-0 on Saturday afternoon…
Simmonds on his […]
There’s no denying Ron Hextall has almost always been associated with the Flyers. However, he’s greatest accomplishment in hockey came in Los Angeles when the Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012. The former goaltender was an integral part of GM Dean Lombardi’s inner-circle and helped craft the roster that eventually claimed the most coveted […]
My chat with Philadelphia forward (and former Kings prospect) Brayden Schenn following the Flyers practice at TSC this afternoon…
On being back at TSC after all these years:

Talk show host Jim Rome likes to joke that if you’re fortunate enough to spend 15 minutes with quarterback Tim Tebow, your life is better for it. Earlier this week, I tweeted an update to that expression…’If you’re lucky enough to spend five minutes with Ian Laperriere, your life is better for it.’
There’s probably […]
When the NHL schedule came out yesterday it revealed the Kings will host both the Washington Captials and Pittsburgh Penguins. Sid and Ovi coming to town? Usually that’s enough to talk about on a boring Thursday in June.
Yet, leave it to Dean Lombardi to throw that one out the window.
First, he made a huge trade with […]
He may be on the other side of the globe, yet Jim Fox still made time to check in with MayorsManor regarding the big news from yesterday.
Fresh off another successful charity event last week (they raised over $200k at the 23rd annual Jim Fox/Dave Taylor golf tournament), Fox headed over to Prague this week for […]
The times they are a-changin’. Or are they?
For the last few years, the Kings have had more prospects invited to Team Canada’s World Junior evaluation camps than just about any other NHL club. Last year alone, they had Brayden Schenn, Linden Vey, JF Berube, Kyle Clifford and several others on the list.
The Kings […]
On the eve of the NHL’s post-season coming to end, there are still two open questions – who will win the Stanley Cup this year, Boston or Vancouver?
