After three games played in their second round series, the Blues look like a team that aren’t quite sure what hit them. Gone are the days of a methodical, organized, ‘within the system’ attack, supported by good goaltending. Instead, they’re taking unnecessary penalties and find themselves intimidated by the LA Kings. Following their third straight [...]
After a 4-2 win that saw the Kings edge the Blues in just about every statistical category – shots 22-20, hits 46-39, takeaways 8-2, etc. – LA now has a commanding 3-0 lead in the series vs. St. Louis. It’s worth noting that coming into the post-season, the Kings had never lead a playoff series [...]
Based upon reader reaction a few days ago, it looks like we’re safe to combine both editions of the First Goal Contest into a single post on days when the Kings play.
If you’re already confused though, here’s the deal – we’ve been running two separate First Goal Contests during the playoffs. There’s the traditional MayorsManor [...]
The St. Louis Blues are now 0-for-26 on the power play vs. the Kings this season. However, LA captain Dustin Brown warns about his team possibly ‘going back to the well’ too often and wants to see fewer penalties in the remaining games of their second round series.
There were also plenty more quotes after the Kings 5-2 [...]
We’re going to try something new here and see how it goes.
As most of you know, we’ve been running two separate First Goal Contests during the playoffs. The first is the traditional MayorsManor contest run exclusively during Kings games, where recently we’ve been giving away a signed puck. The other, is more like a tournament that [...]
It looks like the Kings won’t be making any line-up changes tonight for game two of their second round series with St. Louis. Later today, we’ll post details on the First Goal Game – where you can win a signed Dustin Brown puck. For now, here’s what some of the players were saying following morning [...]
The Kings and Blues second round series might be shown nationally on the NBC Sports Network, but that’s not going to keep Bob Miller and Jim Fox completely away from the games. In fact, Fox Sports West is having them host a post-game show and here’s what the duo had to say following the Kings 3-1 [...]
They say you need secondary scoring to win in the playoffs – and the Kings are certainly getting that at that moment. Saturday night in St. Louis, LA’s first goal came from Slava Voynov (his first NHL post-season goal and the first one by a Kings rookie defenseman since Alex Zhitnik in 1993). That tied [...]
Before we being here, just a quick reminder… If you missed this morning’s MayorsManor show, you should absolutely check out the free replay here. We covered the Blues vs Kings match-up from every possible angle and had a slew of guests on to help us – names like Luc Robitaille, Rob Blake, Ian Laperriere, Ted [...]
Round two of the Stanley Cup playoffs continues today with two games, one in each conference.
As you’ve probably heard by now, MayorsManor is hosting a special First Goal Contest that will run through the entire length of the post-season (original announcement here). Please note, this is separate from the contest we run exclusively during LA Kings [...]
