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 […]

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. Helene Elliot extolled all their virtues today in the Los Angeles Times. But I have had my eye on Willie Mitchell for quite a […]

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 […]

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 […]

This is our only meeting this season with the Maple Leafs. Toronto is only a few points above us and has been having a hard time winning games. As for the Kings, this is the last game on our road trip and they hope to win this one to make the trip 2 wins, 2 […]

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, […]

                    This is the first of four times we will play the Columbus Blue Jackets this season. Last season we beat them three out of the four games. This season? I’m not so sure. Especially since Columbus just beat Vancouver in a SO. But just look […]

We play the Dallas Stars tonight in the forth 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. […]

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 clears up a spot on the roster for Willie Mitchell coming back. I feel a little sorry for Moreau because its the end […]

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, […]

        I miss Hanzus. I miss Richardson too actually.         Tonight is the second of six meeting the Kings will have against San Jose.  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 […]
