I would like to pay tribute to the forgotten Los Angeles Kings fan. You know who they are. They are the ones who stayed with you through the long season of ups and downs of what is now our beloved hockey team. The ones who gave up Dancing with the Stars, American Idol and Snooky’s… [Read more…]

Los Angeles Kings vs New Jersey Devils – Game 5 SCF, Goaltending

June 9, 2012 by

SUTTER: “There’s not enough of a difference in the series. Brodeur was awesome, I think, the other night. We need, probably, Jonathan to be that tomorrow.’’ I copied that quote from Hammond’s site. You can read more here. But the fact of the matter is you need your goalie to steal a game for you… [Read more…]

L.A. Kings vs New Jersey Devils – Game 4 SCF – Coaching a Champion Team & More Pics to Share

June 6, 2012 by

6

The definition of a coach is to Inspire, Motivate and Educate.  Darryl Sutter has done all 3 of these. He has lived and breathed hockey all of his life. Prior to the appearance of Sutter, the Kings were a great defensive team.  Then they were taught to balance their game.  The fact is that Sutter has prepared them… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

All the experts are out in full force today with their opinions, predictions and even charts to explain who will win the game tonight.

“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… [Read more…]

May 27, 2012 by

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… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

May 17, 2012 by

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… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

Pick an underdog. Go ahead, we have two to choose from. The Kings, in 8th place beating the 1st and 2nd place teams in the Conference, and the Coyotes  who moved into 3rd place at the end of the season with 5 wins in a row. The Kings have been to the Western Conference Finals once before… [Read more…]

St. Louis Blues Eulogy Recipe – St. Louis Ribs!

May 11, 2012 by

It’s time to do our  Eulogy Recipe for the Blues. Remember to read the Puck Daddy Eulogies over at Yahoo Sports as they are very funny. As long as it’s not my team! So what recipe is synonymous with St. Louis? Why St. Louis Ribs for sure! We may have held the Blues in contempt while we were on… [Read more…]

Vancouver Canucks Eulogy Recipe – Poutine!

May 9, 2012 by

2

You’ve seen the Eulogies over at Puck Daddy from Yahoo Sports. It’s basically a verbal beat down on the team eliminated from the playoffs. And to make it more offensive, the eulogy is usually written by the eliminated team’s rival. If you have not followed the Eulogies, they are a lot of fun to read.… [Read more…]

I know we are still reeling from the fantastic win last night and I have the memories ingrained in my brain forever.

May 6, 2012 by

This is only the second time in franchise history that the Kings have had a 3-0 lead in a playoff series. Second. Two. And both are from this season. The first being Vancouver and they were able to come back to win game 4 before we knocked them out of the first round in the… [Read more…]

L.A. Kings Get the Respect they Deserve

May 4, 2012 by

4

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? We played with our heads held high. No grandstanding, no bullshit,… [Read more…]

Quick! Everyone pinch yourselves! Go ahead, I’ll wait…Yup it’s real. The Kings are 2-0 in the second round against the St. Louis Blues.

Ever watch Dancing with the Stars? Well, they have these three judges. I don’t know their names and I’m not going to look them up, but you’ve seen them. On one side is the pretty lady judge, in the middle is the grumpy old judge and on the other side is the jumping up judge.… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

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.

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… [Read more…]

Los Angeles Kings – Dissecting Round 2

April 27, 2012 by

10

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… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

The Kings are back in Vancouver hoping to eliminate the Canucks tonight and move on to the 2nd round of the playoffs. What do the Kings need to do to beat Vancouver tonight and eliminate them all together? We need to make the Nucks mad. They are having a hard time right now and moving… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

You Know You Are a Mom Who Watches Too Much Hockey When:

You switch players names for regular words: Son:  I feel sick. Mom:  (feeling head for temperature) You ok? Do you feel like you have to chara? or.. Mom:  Dammit! Why does the cat have to chara in the house?     Your kids will not be in the same room as you during a… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks (Playoff Game 2)

April 13, 2012 by

Forget “King Henrik”. We’ve got “King Richards”! And boy oh boy does he deserve it. Richards played his best game as a King Wednesday against Vancouver and the Kings came away with a much deserved win. Vancouver was all over the place, diving and whining and pretty much being the same old Vancouver Canucks they… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks (Playoff Game 1)

April 11, 2012 by

The Kings finished the season in the playoffs. We were 29th in scoring in the whole NHL and still ended up in the top eight. The keys to winning this series against the Vancouver Canucks are our offense and goaltending. I’m looking for Quick to stand on his head – again and as usual –… [Read more…]

Kings play Vancouver for the playoffs – S**t Talking!

April 9, 2012 by

11

Let’s talk smack: Q: What does a Vancouver Canucks fan do after his team has won the Stanley Cup? A: He turns off the PlayStation 3. We play Vancouver again in the first round same as we did two years ago. It was a pretty good series before and this looks to be another one… [Read more…]
