There is no doubt that all three goaltenders that were nominated for the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top netminder in the regular season are all deserving of the coveted Trophy. While Nashville Predators’ goaltender Pekka Rinne had a terrific season and deserved to be nominated this season, this trophy will really be between Los Angeles Kings’ Cup winning goaltender Jonathan Quick and New York Rangers’ netminder Henrik Lundqvist. Taking a look at Quick, it felt like he almost had to be perfect in every game he played. The Kings were one of the worst teams in the league in terms of scoring goals in the regular season, which meant that Quick needed to be ready to make a big save at all times. Quick succeeded in doing so and had his best regular season in his young NHL career. Quick went 35-21-13 with a 1.95 goals against average, a .929 save percentage and was tied for the league lead in shutouts with 10. In Quick’s 69 games played, many of them were low scoring games and despit...

Jonathan Quick's Awesome Victory Speech

s/t to Chuck Schwartz for having this gem on his twitter feed.

LA Kings' Jonathan Quick beats censors on live TV

One way to rile up a crowd during a typical boilerplate speech is throw in a four-letter word to spice things up.  Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick did just that not once but three times with his profane praise of his teammates during a rally celebrating the team's Stanley Cup Championship on Thursday at the packed Staples Center. During a live broadcast on KCAL 9,...

Memo to KTLA: The Los Angeles victory parade is for the Kings, not the Lakers (Video)

During the Kings’ Stanley Cup rally, Jonathon Quick dropped three f-bombs

It seems that no Los Angeles Kings player can be on television anymore without dropping at least one f-bomb. Dustin Brown dropped one in front a live national audience minutes after the Kings won the Stanley Cup. But yesterday, Jonathon Quick upped the ante by dropping not one, not two, but three f-bombs within a minute of having the microphone passed to him. [Eye On Hockey]

Kings Fan Honors Fallen Scouts With Stanley Cup Champions Tribute at 9/11 Memorial (Photo)

There weren't many people who weren't touched in some way by the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001, and that goes for the sports world as well. The Los Angeles Kings lost a pair of scouts on that fateful day in 2001, as both Ace Bailey and Mark Bavis (a Massachusetts native) were on Flight 175 out of Boston, which was supposed to be set for a cross-country flight back to...

Congrats to the Kings

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings and their Stanley Cup. I hadn't got a chance to say that on this site quite yet, and I offer many apologies for that fact. Since I have been working on a Los Angeles Kings/Star Wars motif for about 4 years (I think), the only way to properly show how happy I am for you is with a celebration.  Of course, now that the post season is over...

TRH Stanley Cup Final Recap: 6 of 1

I honestly had no idea it would be like this. I figured the Los Angeles Kings would win the Stanley Cup and I'd be blogging non-stop about it until training camp starting in September. Don't get me wrong... this feeling I've had for the past 6 days is unlike anything I've ever experienced in my 25 years of being a fan of the sport of hockey. It's the perfect mixture...

Stanley Cup Party At Wet Republic Pretty Much A Sausage Fest

Kinda disappointed this morning with the Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings and their party yesterday at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic. Just when you figure there will be multiple photos of bikini tramps drinking exotic bottled water from Lord Stanley, the Kings go and have a massive sausage party. And we’re even more disappointed that the boys are all in a private pool without a bikini...

L.A. Lakers Victory parade? Yikes no respect for the Kings

Wow! Nice slight to the Los Angeles Kings and their Stanley Cup victory. "We will probably be over the Laker's victory parade, Mark Kriski said.

How did I not know about this ahead of time?

The Kings were in on the Star Wars joke the whole time! And by that, I don't mean "the thing that I did where I wrote Los Angeles Kings into the script of Star Wars". I mean "the thing where they made three mediocre moves as a prequil to three tremendous movies".
