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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
