Game Preview – Kings vs Sharks (round two)

April 7, 2012 by

8

It’s quiet today. There is almost an eerie silence in regards  to the game tonight. Is everyone holding their collective breath? Are we happy we made the top eight after this tremulous season or are we cautiously optimistic about our chances? I know I feel both. Both triumphant we made it and wary of what will be.… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Sharks, Can you feel it?

April 5, 2012 by

21

Can you feel the excitement? Has the tension hit you? How about those nervous jolts striking the pit of your stomach? You’re not alone. Tonight we play the San Jose Sharks and it all comes down to these final two games and gaining a spot in the playoffs. Oh we’ll make it. In fact we make… [Read more…]

A Brief History of the Vezina and Hart Trophies

April 4, 2012 by

6

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… [Read more…]

L.A. Kings – 2 Games Left – Congratulations to Quick and King’s Playoff Chances

April 3, 2012 by

1

Last night Jonathan Quick earned a league leading 10 shutouts for this season. So far. NHL.com actually came out today and gave him their pick for the Vezina.  The Vezina Trophy is given to the most outstanding goaltender and the winner is voted by the general managers of the NHL teams. If you want to read… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Oilers (Rinse & Repeat)

April 2, 2012 by

26

The Kings meet the Oilers for the final time after beating them last friday 4-1. With a win tonight, the Kings will gain a 2 point lead in the Pacific and inch closer to a Division championship for the first time in 21 years. After all our mid-season disappointment, I keep pinching myself on how this… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Wild (Wild end of season!)

March 31, 2012 by

14

Do you love a great roller-coaster ride? Because that’s what we are on right now as a King’s fan. Its been a lot of fun as well as extremely stressful. Did you see the intensity of Richard’s face after he scored that amazing short-handed goal last night? Did you watch Brown hit hard and just pummel his way… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Oilers

March 30, 2012 by

13

The Kings are competing to keep a playoff spot and the Edmonton Oilers are out. As of right now (noon pst) the Kings are in 8th place and Edmonton is in 14th in the western conference. We should be able to beat them easily right? Wrong. For some incredibly stupid reason, the Kings do not play… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Flames

March 28, 2012 by

You know how you can tell a King’s fan from all other hockey fans? They’re bald. That’s right, they have no hair. We slowly and surely have been pulling it out little by little this season. We don’t need Rocco’s tattoo balm as our sponsor, we need a sunscreen company. Can you see it? All the fans milling around… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks

March 26, 2012 by

25

Vancouver is first in the NW Division and 2nd in the Western Conference. Kings are in 8th battling to stay in the playoff race. That makes for exciting hockey! You hear talk about rivalries lately with the Ducks and yes, they are close but the real rivalry for King’s fans is the Vancouver Canucks. The… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Bruins

March 24, 2012 by

17

The Boston Bruins are coming to our house to play. But we are a different playmate this time. Back in December, Boston beat us 3-0 on the very first game after Terry Murray was fired. The dreaded road trip where everything was scrambled including how we played. But not now. Oh no, not now. Boston… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blues

March 22, 2012 by

16

We knew it would be like this. We knew during those previous game losses that it would be close to make the playoffs. We knew the boys were going to have to dig deep in their souls and each pull out a miracle. The Kings stand in 8th place after 5 wins in a row.… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Sharks

March 20, 2012 by tracykingslover

22

“This is an important game tonight between the Kings and the Sharks” = understatement of the century. Ok, well not century but this season for sure. How important is this game tonight? The Kings are tied with the Sharks with 82 points and set in 9th and 10th place respectively in the Western Conference standings.… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Predators

March 17, 2012 by tracykingslover

This is it boys and girls. The final game against Nashville this season. Kings have taken 2 of the three so far and most recently two weeks ago. Kings won last night and our standings look a hell of a lot better this morning. If all goes our way tonight, we could find ourselves in… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Ducks

March 16, 2012 by tracykingslover

7

Last game of the season between the Kings and Ducks. It’s almost sad, isn’t it? No? You’re right! It’s not sad its fricken awesome because we beat the pants off those fowl smelling Ducks 4 out of the 5 times we played so far. Tonight we meet at the Ponda and intend to crush their dismal playoff chance dreams.… [Read more…]

Kings Win – Detroit Loses – Amen

March 14, 2012 by The Recipe Seeker

4

I saw Tom Hanks in the stands last night rooting for the Kings. Let’s face it ladies, would Tom Hanks root for a loser? No! It’s sign from the hockey gods and we are going to win every game from now until the end of the season. If they can keep up that fast pace… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Wings

March 13, 2012 by tracykingslover

13

Getting beaten by the Wings makes me sad. Playing against the Wings when they have half their roster and still losing makes me mad. Getting swept in the season? Fury. Not Fury like extremely pissed, but the full on fury of an expulsion of fiery lava building pressure and letting go so your head blows… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Hawks

March 11, 2012 by tracykingslover

16

If only all our games could be like the last one we had against Chicago! We’ve won 2 of the 3 games so far this season and both were shutouts. Brown’s hat trick still makes me smile. Of course, being a King’s fan is a partial bi-polar experience, so we have to grab what we… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Red Wings

March 9, 2012 by tracykingslover

13

Time for the Wings! Woo hoo! Nothing better than a beat down like last time when they took us 8-2. BUT! After last night, I think the Kings will be ready for the depleted Wings and that uneven score will be in our favor after tonight’s game. Detroit is still without their best players. Lindstrom,… [Read more…]

Kings Hockey Fail vs CBJ

March 8, 2012 by tracykingslover

6

I really really want to hate JJ but I can’t. He played his ass off tonight and I’m a little concerned when he talked to Bob at the intermission. He said that he is now able to play “his” game with the Blue Jackets. Was he held back so much when he was a King?… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blue Jackets

March 8, 2012 by tracykingslover

11

I know you’ve heard all the buzz about Jeff Carter and Jack Johnson in regards to tonight’s game. Will Jeff C get boo’d? I’d give that a 100% yes. Will JJ feel weird playing against his former team? I’ll also give that a 100% yes. You know what we also need to do 100%? It’s… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Predators

March 6, 2012 by tracykingslover

So it’s time for the Preds again. We only met with them last week when they beat the Kings 2-1 at their home. But fear not! It is time for a rah-rah edition of Game Preview today. The series is tied 1-1 and this is the 3rd of our 4 meetings this season. The Kings need… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Ducks

March 3, 2012 by tracykingslover

29

You’ve heard these lines a million times: “These two points are crucial” or “Kings must win tonight”. How about “We can’t afford to lose this one”. Imperative, important, essential. Should I go on? We King’s fans know exactly what they are talking about. The last quarter of the season and the Kings are on the… [Read more…]

L.A. Kings – Pics, Jerseys and the Penalty Box

March 1, 2012 by tracykingslover

5

We finally made it to the Penalty Box on Saturday before the Kings/Hawks game. Hubbypat and I have tried before but have either been too late or it was closed for a private function. Let me start by saying if you have not been there yet, you are truly missing out.  Our very own hockey… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Wild

February 28, 2012 by tracykingslover

16

After talking to the ladies in work about hockey this season, and the Kings playing up and down and driving us crazy, I’ve come to a conclusion. Women are much more patient fans then men. Oh, I’m not saying we don’t cuss up a storm and demand everyone’s head after a game loss, but in the… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Predators

February 27, 2012 by tracykingslover

8

This is only our 2nd of 4 meetings this season with the Nashville Predators. They saved all the games for the end of the season I suppose for traveling reasons. Bernier was in goal for us back in November 2011 at our last match up and Kings won 4-3.  The Kings hit the road right… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blackhawks

February 25, 2012 by tracykingslover

21

First off, a big happy congratulations to Willie Mitchell who has agreed to a two-year contract extension worth 7 million. That is the same price he is making now. Mitchell turns 35 this year so I’m happy to have him as a mentor for the younger defensemen, especially now that JJ is gone. He will… [Read more…]

Welcome Jeff Carter! Bring the Party to LA!

February 24, 2012 by tracykingslover

13

So much on the internet about how much Jeff Carter and Mike Richards party. They drink and go out with girls! Well, this King’s fan decided to see just how bad Richards and Carter are and I scoured the internet in search for pics:   OOps! Thats Upshall for the flyers..I’ll keep looking…      … [Read more…]

Goodbye Jack MF Johnson – We send our best to you!

February 23, 2012 by tracykingslover

11

Well, the trade is done. Jeff Carter is a LA King and our very own JMFJ is a Blue Jacket. I have mixed emotions.  I”m happy to get Carter, and happy for Richards to have his friend here. I’m happy there is change as I’ve always been that type of “change is good” person. But… [Read more…]

Tentative Trade – JJ for Carter

February 23, 2012 by tracykingslover

2

Hammond is reporting that the Kings are in the process of trading Jack Johnson (and probably a 1st draft pick) for Jeff Carter from Columbus. We all know that there has been a Rick Nash, also from Columbus, watch. I will update later as needed.  I’d be sad to lose JJ, but do also note we… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Avalanche

February 22, 2012 by tracykingslover

11

This is the fourth and final meeting this season with Colorado. The Avalanche have 62 pts to our 66 and is close behind us in 11th place to our 8th. We moved back up into the top 8 with that 1 pt from the tie in regulation last night. Oh, last night, last night, how… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Coyotes – Fight on!

February 21, 2012 by tracykingslover

21

We meet to fight again! All though the last game we played against Phoenix was fun in the first two periods, it came to an abrupt halt when Phoenix scored and we never got on the board. No amount of fighting was going to get a puck in the net for the Kings. This is… [Read more…]

L.A. King’s Stat and Trade Rumor Rant

February 20, 2012 by tracykingslover

28

The Kings have scored 1 or fewer goals in 23 games this season. That is essentially a ¼ of all our games that we are just throwing out the window. Since the Kings have played 58 games, the 23 games that they have scored 1 or less goals in so far this season is 40%… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Flames

February 18, 2012 by tracykingslover

14

This is the third of our four meetings this season.  We have split the first two, one win each. Calgary is right behind us in the Western Conference with 63 to our 65 points. Do you know what that means? They are in 9th place and we are in 8th place. If we win tonight,… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Coyotes

February 16, 2012 by

17

We play Phoenix tonight and they are right on our tail with just a mere two points between us. If we lose tonight, we move to 8th place and Phoenix takes our established 7th place in the Western Conference. Phoenix Coyotes have climbed into eighth place in the West with a one-point lead in  the… [Read more…]

Facts: Played hockey through to University of New Haven Labor Law Attorney from Tulane University General Manager of San Jose Sharks from 1996-2003 Scout 2003-2006 General Manager of Los Angeles Kings 2006-current     Is it time for Dean Lombardi to go?

Game Preview – Kings vs Stars

February 12, 2012 by

22

I could have sworn the game was at 5:00 pst and not 3:00 pst but here it is 3:00 and the game is starting. I’m late! Ah, that’s ok. Lets get right to it. Today is short and sweet. The lineup looks the same as yesterday with the Rookies still on the second line. I… [Read more…]

Game Preview – King’s Rookies vs NY Islanders

February 10, 2012 by

7

The game we played last night probably sucked the joy of life out of you and today you were just a little depressed. C’mon, you know you were. Well, Sutter is making a few changes today that is..uh..odd. First off, Jarret Stoll is out on IR with an injured abductor muscle (hip). Stoll hurt it… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Panthers

February 9, 2012 by

7

We meet the Florida Panters for the second and final time this season. The Kings are 7th in the west with 62 pts  while the Panthers are in 9th place with 59 pts in the East. To say these two points are important to the both teams is a big understatement. We need the… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Hurricanes

February 4, 2012 by

11

I love this picture. Drewiski should play tonight. We need something to shake us up a bit after our game last night. Seriously, I didn’t think we played horrible, just felt like we didn’t play. At all. Tonight we play against the Carolina Hurricanes for the first time since October 2010. This is our first… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blues

February 3, 2012 by

19

This is our third meeting out of the four we will have this season. The Kings have won both of the previous two with Quick in goal in the first one and Bernier in goal for the second. Quick will start tonight and since we are back to back, I think Sutter may give the… [Read more…]

The LA King’s Clocks and What Hockey Fans are Saying (with Update)

February 3, 2012 by

3

Just my 2 cents. We all know by now that the Kings scored at the last .04 seconds left in the 3rd to beat Columbus on Wednesday night. We also know that the clocked stopped for a half second or there abouts. I do feel bad for CBJ, but we’ve been in the same spot… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blue Jackets

February 1, 2012 by

16

Tonight is game 3 out of the four we have against CBJ. The Jackets are coming off a very bad game last night against San Jose with a 6-0 loss. Columbus is in last place in the NHL and of course we assume we can just beat them badly and move along collecting our 2… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Senators

January 23, 2012 by

9

It was hard finding pictures between the Kings and Senators since the last time we played each other was back in November of 2010! This is our first and last time we will meet this season. No one expected Ottawa to be where they are in the NHL with 60 pts to our 56 pts.… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Avalanche

January 21, 2012 by

First off lets wish our All-Star goalie, Jonathon Quick, a very happy Birthday today! He is 26 years old. I think a perfect birthday present would be a nice win in net. Don’t you? Hard to think with that sweet boyish face that Quickie is married and has a one year old daughter!  … [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks

January 17, 2012 by

3

This is the third meeting this season between the two teams and we each hold a victory and a loss. Both teams are coming off a recent loss all though ours was in OT and Vancouver was beaten by the Ducks. Haha. That’s gotta hurt. The Kings beat Vancouver on Dec 31, 2011 4-1 and… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Oilers

January 15, 2012 by

9

We are in Edmonton again and hopefully we will continue to dominate like we did against Calgary. When Lombardi apologized to the Oilers organization I thought, oh oh, here comes a trade. Possibly Hemsky. Well, I don’t know about you but we already have our “Hemsky” with Gagne. Isn’t trading for a consistently hurt player getting old to… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Sutter’s Kings vs Sutter’s Flames

January 14, 2012 by

9

This is the first of our four meetings this season. It seems odd that our first meeting is past the half way mark but we will play again just 5 days from now at Staples for game 2. Last season the Kings had a pretty good run against Calgary with a 4-1 record and… [Read more…]

Our All-Star goalie is in net against the Dallas Stars tonight for our 5th of 6 meetings this season. We have split Dallas 2-2 so far. The Kings are in 8th place with 49 pts and Dallas in 9th place with 47 pts. We are so close! Dallas lost to the Ducks night… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Capitals

January 9, 2012 by

21

This is our only meeting this year. The Kings typically have played great against the Capitals. They have won 7 of the last 9 and our last meeting in Feb of 2011 was 4-1 for the Kings. Usually we play hard and gritty when a known top team comes to town, but after our loss… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blue Jackets

January 7, 2012 by

8

This is the second of the four times we play the Blue Jackets this season. We won the first game 2-1. Now, I feel sorry for the Blue Jackets. They have only 25 pts to our 47 pts. And we are barely in the top eight in the standing for Western conference. The Jackets are in… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Coyotes

January 5, 2012 by

26

This is the 4th of our 6 meetings this season and the Kings are 2-0-1 so far. The Coyotes are only 3 pts behind us and in 4th place to our 2nd place in the Pacific. The thing about our division is we have 4 out of the five teams are just 3 points apart. The Ducks suck and statistically… [Read more…]

These Nuck fans were in line and we were taking pics of everyone around us. They all gave a big smile. hahahahahahaha…so priceless. And then after the game, they all met in the 100′s across from us and sang and chanted. Not sure what they were doing. It was really strange.     I tried… [Read more…]

Kings Show No Fear Against the Canucks

January 1, 2012 by

2

They could have come in fully intimidated by the Canucks last night. But NO! They played balls out with all the confidence in the world. When Kopitar scored in the second period, the whole team became renewed. Has coach Sutter done something boost their confidence or have they decided on their own not to be… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Vancouver – Hey Nucks! Are you ready to ruuuuumble?!

December 31, 2011 by

Ahhhh, the hipsters in buses have descended on California yet again. The Canucks first came to San José and beat the Sharks 3-2 in ot, then they made their way down the coast and killed the Ducks 5-2 and finally have landed in our home for the game tonight. I think they are ready for a beat-down… [Read more…]

L.A. Kings – A Worthy Opponent

December 29, 2011 by

4

Yes, I know we lost tonight but I don’t care. We have a cohesive team playing hockey. They played tonight the way they played last night. Tough, competitive and with their hearts. I saw a moment when the new coach, Sutter, tapped Bernier on the shoulder and I swear I could hear him saying to Bernier,… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Winnipeg Jets, 15 years later

December 29, 2011 by

5

I tried to find a picture from the Winnipeg Jets the last time the Kings played them on 4-12-1996. But this was all I could find and not a King in sight! The Jets won that night 5-3 and closed out their last regular season home game as the next season they would become the… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Sutter’s Blackhawks

December 28, 2011 by

2

This is our second meeting this season against the Hawks and we lost the first one 2-1. That was then, this is now. The Kings are playing much better and I think have a more cohesive team. Chicago is playing excellent and is 1st in the Western Division with 50 points. The thing about Chicago… [Read more…]

How about those LA King’s playoff chances, eh?

December 27, 2011 by

Think we’ll make the playoffs? According to SportsClubStats.com, in order to make the playoffs, we have to finish with 28-13-5 for a 100% chance to make the top 8. That’s quite a hill to climb. Can we do it? “It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” Vince Lombardi Did you… [Read more…]

December 26, 2011 by

This is the third of our six meetings this season against Phoenix. We split the first two. Phoenix has 39 points to our 37 so we are very close in the standings.   According to the practice this morning, Martinez, Dreweski and Loktionov will probably be healthy scratches tonight. Phoenix has been playing horrible at… [Read more…]

December 23, 2011 by

I’ve been shopping and cooking all day and almost couldn’t get to this preview. I’ve got a ton more cooking to do tonight, so this will be short and sweet. This is the third of six meetings between the Kings and Sharks. We each have a win previously. The Sharks have 39 points to our… [Read more…]

December 22, 2011 by

This is the 4th of our 6 meetings so far this season. We are 2-1 against the Ducks and hope to make that 3-1 tonight. Both the Kings and the Ducks have played well below their expectations this year. But the Ducks suck more! Ha! This is the first meeting of the new coaches. Sutter… [Read more…]

This picture is from Hammond’s site and it shows our new Coach Sutter on the ice at practice today. Hammond has another pic and more info here.

Kings vs Redwings – an Observation

December 17, 2011 by

6

O.K. let’s get it over with. We lost..  However, the Kings played their hearts out. My observation is  if they can skate and play like that against a fast paced motivated team like Detroit, why can’t they do the same when they play a weaker team. It seems to me that you are only as good… [Read more…]

You think my cartoons are mean today? You have no idea of what butt heads the Wing’s fans can be.  Read this is from a Wings Blog: “It’s going to be no mercy…no holds barred…falls count anywhere…beat the crap out of the Kings inside of a steel cage and crush their hopes and dreams because, damnit,… [Read more…]

Coach Murray is gone and the internet is abuzz with the Darryl Sutter rumors as the next coach. Sutter is a hard ass, I’m not thrilled, but not totally bummed by him as our coach either. I just wish Lombardi would take time on deciding the next King’s Coach. I would like him to work… [Read more…]

I was so depressed over the loss on Saturday night that I didn’t even write a thing for this blog on Sunday. Nope, I painted (I suck at that by the way), I shopped and decorated the house in a festive light. So what happens? The one day I decide to drop out of the… [Read more…]

We play the Dallas Stars tonight in the fourth of our six meetings this season. We have previously won two and hope to add another 2 points tonight. Richards is still out but Mitchell is back. Moreau cleared waivers and has been offered a place with Manchester, our AHL team. He has not accepted yet.… [Read more…]

So, what’s up? Anything new?

December 9, 2011 by

We have a few changes to mention today: (no, Murray is still the coach) Ethan Moreau was put on waivers this morning. Teams have until 9 am tomorrow to claim him.

This is Game 2 out of four against the Wild. We beat them 5-2 back on Nov 12. Minnesota is now in first place in the league with 39 points and we are in 15th place with 30 points. Martinez is back in the lineup tonight so the Kings will sit out Dreweski and they have… [Read more…]

Thanks to sonsean for this Duckhunt picture. I’m using it every Kings v Ducks game for good luck since we win when I put it on the blog. Maybe I’ll have him make a fun picture for every team!   This is our third of six meetings this season. Kings have won both the previous games,… [Read more…]

Kings vs Canadiens – A Dilemma

December 4, 2011 by

3

I sat down to watch the game yesterday between the Kings and the Canadiens with mixed emotions. Being a Montrealer I was excited about the prospect of seeing my old team play. But at the same time, I have fallen in love with the Kings. What a dilemma! But that dilemma only lasted for a… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Montreal

December 3, 2011 by

Bernier is in net today against Montreal in our only meeting this season. Can you tell Bernier was born in Montreal? The Kings are without Mike Richards today who leads the team with 11 goals. He was hit in the head by Florida’s Bergenheim Thursday night and went on the injured-reserve list with an upper-body… [Read more…]

Last Night’s game – Kings beat the Panthers

December 2, 2011 by

11

First of all, I would like to know how a Florida team got the name “Panthers”. That’s just weird. But I did enjoy the game, mainly because the Kings won. The first period was fast paced and it was a joy to see the team really playing together. Even Brown let go of the puck.… [Read more…]

Preview – Kings vs Panthers

December 1, 2011 by

Tonight we play the Florida Panthers in our first of two meetings this season. Florida is 1-1 out of four games this road trip and will try to make that at least 2 with a win here at staples.  They move on to play San José Saturday. Florida is just above us with 30 points… [Read more…]

King’s Line Change beats Sharks 2-0

November 29, 2011 by

Quick got his 4th shutout this season making him the goalie with the most shutouts in the whole NHL! I love that, he certainly deserved it. Quick faced 33 shots and turned them all away. This was also his 200th game. Bring on the pay increases soon! There is a nice article… [Read more…]

I miss Hanzus. I miss Richardson too actually.         Tonight is the second of six meeting the Kings will have against San José.  We lost in the first meeting on Nov. 7th. Sharks are 1st in the Pacific and we are 4th. But there is only one point… [Read more…]

Kings lose to the Hawks 2-1 – Fans out of Patience

November 27, 2011 by

3

I think I should do a Q & A for beginners called “How to make your way through the neutral zone”. Wow, was that horrid? We would shoot the puck up the middle and Chicago would pick it up. Why not shoot up the boards? I don’t know what anyone was thinking last  night. Hunter… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blackhawks

November 26, 2011 by

The other half owner of my season tickets has tonight’s game. We had to go through all our games and pick the ones we wanted most, then go through the others and split them. I had to trade the Blackhawks for the Montreal game on December 3rd (being from there trumps Chicago). Now, of course,… [Read more…]

Kings give Stars a Thanksgiving present of 2 pts!

November 24, 2011 by

We gave away the game to the Stars last night. If you can’t win a game that even Westgarth can score in, then my friends, time to make some changes!       Celebration after Westgarth’s first goal as a LA King.         I read all the threads and blogs asking for… [Read more…]

Combo – Kings win 3-2 & Game Preview Kings vs Stars

November 23, 2011 by

1

We had a great game yesterday. Drew was fined but not suspended for the hit on TJ Oshie for crosschecking into the boards. This is the minimum fine that can be awarded. Anze scored as well as Richards scored. He really seems to have chemistry with Loktionov. And what about Bernier? How much did you… [Read more…]

This is short and sweet today. I have had a ton of meetings at my other job, you know! St. Louis Blues. We are pretty much even with them. This is the 2nd of four times we play against each other and the first one we won 5-0 on our opening night! Woot! That was… [Read more…]

Kings lose 4-1, Three Important Rules to Follow!

November 20, 2011 by

4

Rule # 1 – Do not watch a Kings game in a suite. THEY NEVER WIN! This was our 3rd suite and all three times the Kings have lost. I apologize, this was all my fault. Rule # 2 – Accept the fact that the opposing team will score within 3 minutes of a kings goal.… [Read more…]

I’ll be there today in a suite with family and co-workers! Can’t wait! It’s much better watching the game in a suite than our seats because we won’t be sitting in a sea of red jerseys. I know, you say I need to go sit in my seat to represent. Well, I’ll be switching with… [Read more…]

I have two co-workers who are hockey fans. One is a Wing’s fan, the other a Suck’s fan. So if you worked with these two, what would you do the day after you killed the Sucks two nights in  a row and the Wings were dealt a swift kill by the Sharks?   That’s right!… [Read more…]

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… [Read more…]

I couldn’t let this day go by without posting these awesome 2 pictures. Notice on the second picture how happy they look. LOL.  This was taken at the Twilight Premier last night at the Nokia Theatre at LA Live 11-14-2011.         Los Angeles Kings with Wives at the Premier. Where is Williams?… [Read more…]

Lokti for President!

November 14, 2011

4

I don’t really mean that. But some Kings fans are really close to this. I hope to God that he does well because it looks like nothing short of a miracle on ice will be enough for a few Kings fans. Andrei Loktionov (Lokti, for short) has been called up due to Dustin Penner being… [Read more…]

LA Kings fans

November 14, 2011

That was a fun time Saturday night. Of course it’s always fun when we win. The Wild fans were non-existent (just how I like it!) and the Twilight and Kings fans were in rare form. I ran into a few characters and just wanted to share:   Loved the passion of our fans! It’s not… [Read more…]

Leave early folks if you want to get to the game on time. Twilight has taken over LA Live! And these pics were taken Thursday. I have no idea what today is like:     Although they look very clean and organized.           Are the guys there for the movie or… [Read more…]

Kings play Minnesota Wild – Wild what?

November 12, 2011

2

It seems that the Kings are playing a team tonight called the Minnesota Wild. My question is..Has Minnesota redefined the english language? I thought wild was an adjective. Or maybe it could be a verb. BUT it is not a noun. Maybe they ran out of money to complete their name or maybe they’re waiting… [Read more…]

Observations on the Nashville Game

November 11, 2011

2

All right ya’all, Momma’s back in the game. It has taken me a while to get into the game again after so many years. But, after watching Tuesday’s game against Nashville, I started to really see some playing. So here’s a couple of observations…. The Kings played real hockey, moving the puck, skating well and… [Read more…]

November 11, 2011

I guess you heard the news. Kings lost last night. I don’t want to talk about it today. I want to talk about how much I can’t stand the bandwagon Canucks fans! I was watching the game last night and I could hear the roar of the crowd from Staples over the TV – problem… [Read more…]

Game Preview – Kings vs Canucks

November 10, 2011

We play Vancouver tonight. I hate Vancouver. All King’s fans hate Vancouver too. I truly do not think I know of one King’s fan who likes Vancouver. They also have the green men and hopefully leave them at home. Also, Vancouver fans get together on big buses and come down to So. Cal games  just… [Read more…]

King’s Coach Change?

November 9, 2011

2

Coach Terry Murray. What to do with him? It seems fans are divided on this issue. You got the “Fire Murray!” fans who want change now and you have the “Leave Murray Alone” fans who are willing to see the season through. I’ve been right smack in the middle. I had to ask myself, why… [Read more…]

Game Pre-view – Kings vs Predators

November 8, 2011

It’s Jonathan Bernier’s turn in the net tonight when we take on the Preds at Staples. Bernier has played well against Nashville previously and we sure do hope he continues that tonight! Plus, personally, I think its time to give Quicky a rest. He needs to look at footage on those short-side goals he has… [Read more…]

Kings lose 5th straight

November 8, 2011

2

I love Anze Kopitar. We came out great against San José in the first and then the whole team left the stadium except Kopitar. Kopitar should win a medal or something for having to put up with this crappy playing. I remember when my son would get a bad team and he could hardly wait… [Read more…]

I’ve got a Sharks fan at one of our No Cal offices at work. He likes to send me emails like the one I got today: “You will only get one goal tonight” Creepy!!!! I swear its like he is doing voodoo on me or something. If we only have one goal tonight, I’m buying… [Read more…]

Kings lose in shoot-out, 3-2

November 6, 2011

Richards crushes! The Kings lost to the Penguins in a shoot out last night at Staples. It was amazing we went to a shoot out. Quick was so upset after Kunitz scored on him to win the game, he smashed his stick against the goal. All I could think of was it was Quick’s great… [Read more…]

Funny pic of Moreau and Niskanan fighting – en guard! I didn’t write the after notes from the game on Friday for Kings vs Oilers because it was too painful.  But today is a new day! A new game! A new opportunity to not get shut out! Penguins are 3rd in the league right now… [Read more…]

Poopy weekend recap

I was totally selfish this weekend and didn’t write anything. I spent it reading, shopping and entertaining.

What a great game last night. Kings beat Dallas 5-3 so now we have won the first two of our 6 meets this season. Voynov was awesome. Usually he is so serious. This was the first time I’ve seen him smile! Congratulations on your first NHL goal… and your second one too!      … [Read more…]

Our last meet up with Dallas was just this last Saturday where we won 1-0 at home. Now we see Dallas on the road and hope to get past our last horrid game vs NJ.

After the game tonight, I wondered who the Los Angeles Kings are playing next.  I looked it up on my handy L.A. Times Schedule and saw it was “PHO.”  I thought, “Who the hell is “PHO?”    I looked at some of the other team name  abbreviations on the calendar I held in my hand.  “COL”… [Read more…]

Westgarth and the “clapping” controversy

October 24, 2011

Every morning I get my coffee and sit down at the computer to read my hockey blogs. I hit all the Kings blogs, the nhl sites and then my message board. Over the past season and still going,  I have heard people bring up how after Kevin Westgarth fights,  he claps as he is led… [Read more…]

Kings Win 1-0 and Quick has 3rd Shut-out!

October 23, 2011

4

Here is a tip for you: You are not supposed to say “shut-out” because that could jinx the goalie and you won’t get one. Hubbypat and I are at the game opener on Tuesday and he blurts out “looks like we are getting a shut out here!”. I cringe. Everyone looks at him, scowling. The… [Read more…]

Great win tonight! Goals by Dustin Brown and the second one by Clifford with an assist from Westy. Wow, such a fast game! This was Quick’s 100′th win and 2nd shut out in a row (first at the game opener). He has played so well. I feel really proud to have him in goal for… [Read more…]

Definition of Versatile: Brad Richardson

October 20, 2011

2

The Kings made a change to the lineup and switched Moreau with Richardson. According toHammond’s article on lakingsinsider.com, Moreau is better and feels better at left-wing. So there goes Richie to right-wing. See, this is what is so amazing about  Richardson; he will play wherever he is positioned. And do a great job. Most hockey… [Read more…]

Game Day Preview – Kings vs Coyotes

The Kings play the Phoenix Coyotes tonight and this should be a fun game. Phoenix has Langkow and Doan and they are great players. Phoenix is 2-2-1 which is only one game win less than us. We are divided by those 2 points. Cool thing about playing Phoenix, San José, the Sucks and Dallas is… [Read more…]

The L.A.

That’s it Bitches! We rocked the house! We crushed the Blues! This is a sweet team to watch. I sensed a different vibe tonight. I’ll have more tomorrow plus pictures. Sleep tight – have pleasant dreams of cups around you. Because, Baby, we are on our way! Go! Kings! Go!

The L.A. Kings 2011-2012: Observations of a Hockey Noob

October 14, 2011

So far into this very young season, the L.A. Kings have won one game and lost two. I’ve been reading up on the team and the consensus is they have not yet lived up to their potential, given all we’ve been hearing about how “strong” and “deep” their team is this year. In last night’s… [Read more…]

Even if you do not watch or know much about hockey, you probably have heard the name Ilya Kovalchuk. The Kings went after Ilya hard last summer. He was wined and dined by the Kings (actually we bought him a coffee, I hear) but he decided to go to the Devils. Just as well we… [Read more…]

As the L.A. Kings 2011-2012 hockey season begins in earnest, I find myself completely overwhelmed with the excitement of it all.  Which is probably why my sister, a Los Angeles Kings super-fan, called me a noob. I think she meant newbie, but it’s there’s something more appropriate about noob.  I’ve got Andre Kopitar mixed up… [Read more…]
