Hugging the post with Kelly Hrudey – what really went down back then

Historically, goaltending hasn’t been one of the strongest facets of the Kings organization. Yes, they had Rogie Vachon in the ’70s and now have Jonathan Quick, the reigning Conn Smythe trophy winner.

Theo Fleury talks Los Angeles and Stanley Cup rings

In an article yesterday, titled Remembering a Rivalry. we looked back at the rich history between the Flames and Kings. Each team has caused the other a fair share of pain at different points, including Calgary bouncing Los Angeles from Wayne Gretzky’s first playoff run with his new team, to the Kings eliminating the Flames in [...]

Revisiting a Rivalry – LA Kings at Calgary Flames

There’s no denying the Kings’ fan-base has grown tremendously since they moved to Staples Center over a decade ago. For that segment of their followers, tonight’s game probably doesn’t mean much – other than a chance to continue the positive momentum they’ve shown over the last five games.
