Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks

January 17, 2012 by


This is the third meeting this season between the two teams and we each hold a victory and a loss. Both teams are coming off a recent loss all though ours was in OT and Vancouver was beaten by the Ducks. Haha. That’s gotta hurt. The Kings beat Vancouver on Dec 31, 2011 4-1 and […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Oilers

January 15, 2012 by


  We are in Edmonton again and hopefully we will continue to dominate like we did against Calgary. When Lombardi apologized to the Oilers organization I thought, oh oh, here comes a trade. Possibly Hemsky. Well, I don’t know about you but we already have our “Hemsky” with Gagne. Isn’t trading for a consistently hurt player getting old to […]

A brief History of the Hockey Puck

January 15, 2012 by


The puck was introduced to Canada by natives of Halifax in the mid 1800′s. It was originally made of wood and they were square, not round. Next came the rubber pucks which were made by slicing a ball in half. The first round pucks were made in Montreal in the 1880′s. The origin of the […]

Game Preview – Sutter’s Kings vs Sutter’s Flames

January 14, 2012 by


  This is the first of our four meetings this season. It seems odd that our first meeting is past the half way mark but we will play again just 5 days from now at Staples for game 2. Last season the Kings had a pretty good run against Calgary with a 4-1 record and […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Stars

January 12, 2012 by


    Our All-Star goalie is in net against the Dallas Stars tonight for our 5th of 6 meetings this season. We have split Dallas 2-2 so far. The Kings are in 8th place with 49 pts and Dallas in 9th place with 47 pts. We are so close! Dallas lost to the Ducks night […]

Thanks LA Kings for Meet the Players!

January 11, 2012 by


              Well, I had the best time ever! This was my first year as a STH and so my first Meet the Players. Other fans had previously said to leave early so I left work super early with my co-worker (hubby had to work) and got there around 4:30. We were […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Capitals

January 9, 2012 by


This is our only meeting this year. The Kings typically have played great against the Capitals. They have won 7 of the last 9 and our last meeting in Feb of 2011 was 4-1 for the Kings. Usually we play hard and gritty when a known top team comes to town, but after our loss […]

Mini Bacon and Egg Tarts for Game Day

January 8, 2012 by


These little tarts are great made ahead so you can nosh during the game. The recipe can be doubled, tripled or you can make as many as you have muffin tins. Omit the green onions if you prefer, but they do add color and flavor. 8 slices of white or whole wheat sandwich bread, crusts […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blue Jackets

January 7, 2012 by


This is the second of the four times we play the Blue Jackets this season. We won the first game 2-1. Now, I feel sorry for the Blue Jackets. They have only 25 pts to our 47pts. And we are barely in the top eight in the standing for Western conference. The Jackets are in […]

The Night the Goalies Reigned Supreme

January 6, 2012 by


Last night was a game of Quick versus Smith, with every one else just being their servants. Skating, charging around, passing randomly and avoiding penalties. But nothing could be as exciting as seeing those 2 goalies playing their hearts out. It was like watching an old-fashioned duel. I wonder what happened to our team that […]
