Following the Canucks 5-1 loss to the Kings on Saturday night, here’s what was being said back in the Vancouver locker room…
- Coach John Tortorella on the start of game: “I thought in the first two periods we had surges early, but couldn’t score. It’s a 5-1 game and you think you got spanked, but [...]
Earlier today we posted our usual pre-game Word Association article, where a handful of Kings players took on four members of the opposing team.

Prior to the team plane taking off on Friday, we asked coach Darryl Sutter, along with broadcasters Bob Miller and [...]

The game was scoreless after 40 minutes, but Dustin Brown potted a goal in the third period and that’s all LA needed to win. After the game, here’s what some of the [...]
New Years Eve had not been kind to the Los Angeles Kings, who had an all-time record of 5-8-3 on the usually festive night. Curiously, they had only hosted one of those games. Back in 1991 – at their former home, the Forum in Inglewood – the Kings led 3-0 entering the third period [...]
That’s it. The 2011 NHL All Star Game is over.
Team Lidstrom came back from being down 4-0 in the first period to defeat Team Staal 11-10. Patrick Sharp was voted the game’s MVP and the Kings’ Anze Kopitar had two goals.
Kudos to all the changes the NHL put in place this year, especially the draft [...]

Team captains Nicklas Lidstrom and Eric Staal met with Brendan Shanahan, NHL Vice President of Hockey and Business Development, earlier this morning to determine which of their players would participate in each [...]
