Game Preview – Kings vs Vancouver – Hey Nucks! Are you ready to ruuuuumble?!

December 31, 2011 by


Ahhhh, the hipsters in buses have descended on California yet again. The Canucks first came to San Jose and beat the Sharks 3-2 in ot, then they made their way down the coast and killed the Ducks 5-2 and finally have landed in our home for the game tonight. I think they are ready for a beat-down […]

L.A. Kings – A Worthy Opponent

December 29, 2011 by


Yes, I know we lost tonight but I don’t care. We have a cohesive team playing hockey. They played tonight the way they played last night. Tough, competitive and with their hearts. I saw a moment when the new coach, Sutter, tapped Bernier on the shoulder and I swear I could hear him saying to Bernier, […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Winnipeg Jets, 15 years later

December 29, 2011 by


I tried to find a picture from the Winnipeg Jets the last time the Kings played them on 4-12-1996. But this was all I could find and not a King in sight! The Jets won that night 5-3 and closed out their last regular season home game as the next season they would become the […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Sutter’s Blackhawks

December 28, 2011 by


This is our second meeting this season against the Hawks and we lost the first one 2-1. That was then, this is now. The Kings are playing much better and I think have a more cohesive team. Chicago is playing excellent and is 1st in the Western Division with 50 points. The thing about Chicago […]

Think we’ll make the playoffs? According to, in order to make the playoffs, we have to finish with 28-13-5 for a 100% chance to make the top 8. That’s quite a hill to climb. Can we do it? “It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” Vince Lombardi Did you […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Coyotes

December 26, 2011 by


This is the third of our six meetings this season against Phoenix. We split the first two. Phoenix has 39 points to our 37 so we are very close in the standings.   According to the practice this morning, Martinez, Dreweski and Loktionov will probably be healthy scratches tonight. Phoenix has been playing horrible at […]

To All Hockey Fans: “May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.” – Irish Blessing Revised […]

Women & Hockey – An Observation

December 24, 2011 by


This observation is not so much about last night’s game as it is about women and hockey in general. Back in the 50′s, it was all about the husband, father, uncle, brothers’ opinion on the game. No matter how much I loved the game, I was never allowed to express my opinion. Now, thanks to […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Sharks

December 23, 2011 by


I’ve been shopping and cooking all day and almost couldn’t get to this preview. I’ve got a ton more cooking to do tonight, so this will be short and sweet. This is the third of six meetings between the Kings and Sharks. We each have a win previously. The Sharks have 39 points to our […]

Game Preview – Kings Sutter vs Ducks Boudreau

December 22, 2011 by


This is the 4th of our 6 meetings so far this season. We are 2-1 against the Ducks and hope to make that 3-1 tonight. Both the Kings and the Ducks have played well below their expectations this year. But the Ducks suck more! Ha! This is the first meeting of the new coaches. Sutter […]

A Few Quick King’s Notes

This picture is from Hammond’s site and it shows our new Coach Sutter on the ice at practice today. Hammond has another pic and more info here. The Los angeles Kings had a press conference today at 1:00 pm and nothing exciting happened. Sutter said the NHL is a 3-2 league meaning he thinks defense […]
