Pre-game chats with Dustin Penner used to be the norm when he was in LA, but now that he’s in Anaheim his visits to MayorsManor have been a little less frequent – and that’s not necessarily a good thing. Always a great quote and one of the more honest players in the league when it [...]
With three first round picks in hand entering the 2003 NHL Draft, then-Kings GM Dave Taylor and his staff headed to Nashville, Tennessee for the league’s annual event. Meanwhile, back home in LA, the team threw a lavish party for their season ticket holders.
Fast forward to the present and the Kings’ current roster features three [...]
With the Rangers practicing at Toyota Sports Center in advance of their game vs the Kings on Monday night, we had a chance to catch up with forward Brad Richards. Here’s what he had to say…
- On how playing in Los Angeles at the Staples Center compares with playing in the famed Madison Square Garden: [...]
As noted recently, we’ve tried to mix up the use of our popular Word Association feature, alternating between having LA players talk about the opposition and occasionally going over to the visiting locker room to get their perspective on the Kings.
Following the Coyotes morning skate at Staples Center we connected with two guys at opposite [...]
Last week we took a brief break from having LA players talk about the opposition using our popular Word Association format when we went over to the other locker room – asking the Dallas Stars for some thoughts on the Kings.
It was well received by the readers here, so we went that route again earlier today, asking the Calgary Flames [...]

Usually though, we’re talking to the Kings’ players about their opponents. Today, we went inside the Dallas Stars locker room to collect some thoughts about their LA [...]
We turned Dustin Penner and Drew Doughty loose again yesterday, capturing some thoughts about the Nashville Predators. Now, as part of our coverage in advance of tonight’s game, they’re back - along with Jim Fox and Jake Muzzin – to play some Word Association using the names of six St. Louis Blues players.
As usual, this was all done one-on-one, so [...]
Over the weekend we posted multiple Word Association articles regarding the Vancouver Canucks. First was the usual pre-game article with several Kings players (including Dustin Brown, Alec Martinez and Justin Williams). We may have even found out more than we bargained for during that round – especially about Roberto Luonogo.
Then, later in the afternoon, coach [...]
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 [...]
Last hour we posted some Word Association with seven members of the LA Kings, where they took on four big names from the Vancouver Canucks. As always, there were some very interesting answers.
Now, let’s go in a slightly different direction.
We threw a twist into things and asked “When you hear ‘Vancouver defenseman,’ which player comes [...]
