With under an hour to go before tonight's game between the Red Wings and Kings, with Dustin Brown out of LA's lineup, as Paul noted, Yahoo Sports' Nicholas J. Cotsonika thoughtfully considering the legacy of the endangered 21-year-old playoff streak... The AP's Larry Lage may have had to elbow his way to his laptop given the number of scribes in attendance for tonight's game at Joe Louis Arena, but he did so in order to drop a heavy hint that the Wings' long-term future does not involve their current rink: The Detroit Red Wings will play in a new arena some season in the future. It's not if, but when and yet Chris Ilitch doesn't know or want to say much about it.

Richardson, Muzzin make most of opportunity

Hard work, perseverance and determination -- three words that best describe Los Angeles Kings forward Brad Richardson. A healthy scratch for 32 of the teams first 34 games that included a stretch of 24 consecutive games without being dressed, Richardson never stopped working both on and off the ice or became frustrated enough to seek a trade. He prepared each and every day, awaiting...

Kings Road Woes Continue by   Jack Weber

Heading off to start a two-game road trip against the Minnesota Wild, Darryl Sutter made no changes to the Kings lineup, apart from in goal, where Jonathan Bernier got the start, finally getting back in after watching Jonathan Quick start the last six.

Kings Brown suspended 2 games for hit on Jason Pominville

@bush1124 The NHL has no choice, they have to suspend him for this hit. — Eric J. Burton (@goon48) April 24, 2013 First off, I was right, the NHL had no choice, they had to suspend Dustin Brown for his hit on Jason Pominville.
