L.A. Kings Hockey Season Redux: Newbie No More Part 4

July 11, 2012 by


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. This had been their experience for over 40 years, they told me. They hoped to hold on to at least get a berth in the playoffs. Just before the end […]

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 – […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Oilers (Rinse & Repeat)

April 2, 2012 by


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 […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Hawks

March 11, 2012 by


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 […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Red Wings

March 9, 2012 by


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, […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Predators

March 6, 2012 by


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 […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Ducks

March 3, 2012 by


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 […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Predators

February 27, 2012 by


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 […]

Welcome Jeff Carter! Bring the Party to LA!

February 24, 2012 by


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! That’s Upshall for the flyers..I’ll keep looking…   […]

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

February 23, 2012 by


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 […]

Tentative Trade – JJ for Carter

February 23, 2012 by


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 […]

Game Preview – Kings vs Blue Jackets

February 1, 2012 by


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 […]
