April 30, 2012 by


Filling in for Tracykingslover is not an easy task. However here’s a brief observation about game 2. There have been quite a few statements from reporters, bloggers and officials regarding tonight’s game. First they had to dissect Saturday’s game. Today they are predicting, speculating and dare I say, announcing the winner of tonight’s game. All […]

April 29, 2012 by


So, here we go! On our way to game 2, second round, Stanley Cup Playoffs, 2012. And of course everyone is talking about how great Kopitar, Brown, Quick and Voynov are. Helene Elliot extolled all their virtues today in the Los Angeles Times. But I have had my eye on Willie Mitchell for quite a […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blues – Let the Games Begin!

April 28, 2012 by


We have all heard how the Kings and the Blues are practically the same team ad nauseam.  Sure the stats are about the same and the low scoring/good defense/goaltending are similar as well. I’m sick of hearing the comparisons. So today I decided to have a little fun and read what the Blues bloggers are […]

It seems everyone has an opinion to voice, a fact to add, or a player to analyze regarding the Kings vs Blues series. With so much deluge of information coming our way, who do we listen to or even how do we pass all the fat and get to the meat? Well, it’s totally overwhelming. We as […]

What a game! What a series! Kings going to Round 2 had us yelling from our porch! We Won! We Won! My heart still hasn’t settled in my chest quite yet. Yesterday we wrote about what the Kings needed to do to win last night and today we celebrate their efforts. Hockey is a game […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks (Game 4)

April 18, 2012 by


Vancouver’s hopes are all on the head of one man – Daniel Sedin. This is a mistake. Not only should you never count on just one person to save your whole series, but seriously? I have no love for the Sedin twins, but this man has had a horrible concussion and has been out due […]

It’s Great To Be A Los Angeles King’s Fan!

April 16, 2012 by


You’ve read all about the Game and how the Kings are leading the series against Vancouver 3 games to zero. So I wanted to share a different prospective of  the game last night. The prospective of a King’s fan. The atmosphere in Staples was electric. The fans brought it loud and hard last night and Vancouver didn’t stand a […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks (Playoff Game 3)

April 15, 2012 by


Two down, two to go. The Kings will play game 3 at home after taking the first two in Vancouver. The Canucks have a great road team and the best road record in the West. That’s confidence and knowing they can win wherever they play. BUT, lets not forget we stole their confidence and left it in […]
