When Darryl Sutter, the Kings’ new coach arrived, the whole season seemed to start over again. This was something that long-time Kings’ fans could understand.

We are 18 games into the L.A. Kings hockey season, and I have a few comments about the game last night against the Anaheim Ducks, and well, a couple of other important items. As a newbie (NOOB), I take my chances commenting on such things, but I’ll be brave. Here goes anyway. First, the game […]
