Los Angeles Kings vs New Jersey Devils – Game 3 SCF on Home Ice

June 4, 2012

Tracy is off to the game with hubbypat. So here I sit trying to fill in for her. It’s hard to do because let’s face it, the woman has actually played on a hockey team. She knows her stuff. So here’s the dilemma; do I take on her persona and play it safe as far […]

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

May 27, 2012

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 […]

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.   We didn’t demand it. We didn’t whine. We earned it. The Kings played without regards to announcers and pundits who thought they were just going to show up and let the other team roughshod all over them. Well, that didn’t happen, did it?

A Brief History of the Vezina and Hart Trophies

April 4, 2012

It’s very exciting to see one of our own being considered for the Vezina trophy. Jonathan Quick certainly deserves it and the fans, who have stuck by the Kings deserve it as well. The Vezina trophy has been a coveted award since the 1920’s. It is named in honour of Georges Vezina, goaltender for the […]

Memories of Hockey on Radio and TV

I was watching the game last night. It became overwhelming at one point and I had to leave. I went outside to have a cigarette and regain my composure. I could still hear Bob Miller and Jim Fox calling the game. It was like I was back in the 1940’s listening to the game on the […]
