LA Kings beat NJ Devils – One Game Down, Three to Go

May 31, 2012 by

Super delicious win last night. I finally was able to sleep a bit. Whether that was from relief or exhaustion, I’m not sure.  We won one Kings fans! Can you believe it? There is only 3 wins left to win the Stanley Cup. I know we still have a long way to go but just […]

Los Angeles Kings Game Preview – Kings vs Devils, Game 1 SCF

May 30, 2012 by

“You can sleep when you’re dead”. That’s the response I received from another King’s fan when I complained how tired I was from the tossing and turning and general non sleep issues during this playoff run. And he is right. This is an extremely exciting time in Kings hockey for not just the players but […]

    Today is the NHL Media Day at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. This is where the players and staff are available for questions from the media and it’s exciting to hear from them and what they are thinking. I have a few great quotes from our guys but first we have a few […]

Farewell to Arizona Coyotes with a Southwestern Green Chile & Pork Stew

We just got back from a week in Sedona Arizona where there are at least 4 or 5 hockey fans. We couldn’t get the game on TV at the Resort where we were staying so we found a sports bar. There were 10 or 12 people waiting for the game to start. It was shown […]

Great game by both the Devils and the Rangers last night. The Devils won and will play the Kings on Wednesday for the first game of the Stanley Cup Final. So what happened right away? I got calls and emails asking about the Devils. Who are they? Are they good? Can they beat us? What’s […]

Congratulations Fans! You were right there with the team last night. You have been right there with them through thick and thin for as many years as they have been around.

Game preview – Kings vs Coyotes, Game 5, Errors Corrected

May 22, 2012 by

21

So many things went wrong on Sunday. The over booking at Staples Center, LA Live with all the bicycles and street closures, the early day game and the additional bandwagoners. The Kings looked out of sync right along with the fans having to arrive 3 hours early for a noon game. We took the metro […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Coyotes, Game 4, Again Please?

May 20, 2012 by

I wanted to write something the past two days but refrained. I haven’t posted a blog between games much during the playoffs and certainly not during the last few games. Which means I CAN’T START NOW AND MESS ANYTHING UP! Oh Lord! These playoffs are going to be the end of me. The list of […]

Holy Moly! Can someone pinch me? The Kings lead the series in the Western Conference Finals 2 games to none. Wow. This is a very exciting and confusing time for Kings fans. We are so happy yet so very cautious. I find people saying things to me like “hey! you’re going all the way!” or […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Coyotes, Game 2 , Sutter’s Plan

May 15, 2012 by

22

More of the same please. Have you noticed how our game remains the same? You can interchange the teams. Vancouver, St. Louis or Phoenix, but through out each round the Kings have stuck with the Plan. Sutter’s Plan. I’m going to call if that from here on out. He has been brutally honest with the […]

      Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there in hockey land. Today is a special day for us. We get to watch hockey and not cook or clean. We get to put our feet up, drink a beer (insert favorite beverage) and watch the game we love.       If […]
