Kings players on which Canucks defenseman comes to mind

Bieksa Canucks MayorsManor

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 […]

Word Association: Kings players take on the hated Canucks

word association - Canucks

Drew Doughty was the first Kings player to openly talk about his hatred of the Canucks a few years ago.  Since then, several others have gone on the record with their disdain for the gang from Vancouver.  However, the other thing most commonly noted is that they’re a good team, usually followed by comments about […]

Several LA Kings players said they didn’t have redemption on their minds when playing the Anaheim Ducks on Monday, despite a 7-4 loss at the Honda Center earlier in the season being perhaps their low point of the year.
What does that have to do with tonight, you ask?  Well, a recent last second loss in Detroit has been […]

Word Association: Five Kings take on four Avalanche players

word association - Avs

It’s another day game for the LA Kings, something coach Darryl Sutter said he doesn’t think they struggle with.  So, we’ll see if they can continue the positive momentum they’ve shown over the last five games.  It will be a challenge because, as Anze Kopitar said yesterday, the Kings will be facing a speedy Avalanche […]

Word Association: Kopitar, Lewis and Penner vs the Flames

Word Association - Flames MayorsManor

The Saddledome in Calgary certainly has not been a kind building to the Kings over the last decade. In fact, at one point, the Kings had lost ten straight games there. However, a 4-3 shootout win in February 2011 started a streak of three straight wins. Can they make it four tonight?
To help set the […]

Word Association: Kopitar, Lewis, Penner vs the Oilers

Word Association - Edmonton Oilers Kings

Last season the Kings went 2-1-1 vs. the Oilers, but that seems like such a long time ago. The more recent memory is of the Kings game in Edmonton just a few weeks ago – where there was some crazy officiating all night long and they eventually lost when Sam Gagner scored in overtime. However, the most lasting image […]

Word Association: Six Kings take on Four Blackhawks

word association - Chicago Blackhaws MayorsManor

Sunday afternoon the suddenly surging Kings will get a chance to extract a little revenge on the red-hot Blackhawks in Chicago.  It was just last month that the two teams met in Los Angeles on opening day of the 2013 season.   That game was a decisive win for the road team and the Kings are […]

Word Association: Five on Four, Kings vs Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets word association

As part of our preview for tonight’s Kings v Blue Jackets game we played Word Association with five Los Angeles players, asking them to react to the names of four Columbus players. Like usual, these were all done one-on-one, so no player heard what the other guy said – which is interesting when you compare their answers…
Rob […]

Word Association: Four LA Kings on Four Anaheim Ducks

Ducks word association

As part of our preview for tonight’s Kings v Ducks game we played Word Association with four Los Angeles players, asking them to react to the names of four Anaheim players.

After 543 games played in the National Hockey League, goaltender Marty Turco may have manned his last crease…or he might not have.  Much like the NHL lockout, Turco’s future remains to be determined.
At the moment, he’s an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team interested once play resumes.  But, does he want to come […]
