ST. LOUIS It might be wishful thinking, but Coach Darryl Sutter is hoping the scent of playoff success will revive left wing Dustin Penner when the Kings open their second-round playoff series against theSt. Louis Blues on Saturday at Scottrade Center.
Sutter switched wingers toward the end of the Kings' first-round victory over Vancouver, putting Penner alongside Mike Richards...
ST. LOUIS -- A few weeks ago, before the Kings began their playoff journey, center Jarret Stoll said that as a young player with Edmonton in 2006, he and his No. 8-seeded Oilers teammates gained a lot of confidence from upsetting the No. 1-seeded Detroit Red Wings. Those Oilers went on to the Stanley Cup finals that spring, losing in seven games to Carolina.
Now that the No. 8-seeded...
Symmetry may not be achieved when the Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues meet, though it can come close.
The league's two sturdiest defensive teams who emerged from the first round having conceded eight goals in five games combined to allow exactly one goal in their final 125 minutes of head-to-head game action. St. Louis' 15 shutouts were the most by one team in 42 years...
LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles Kings' second round NHL Stanley Cup Playoff series versus the St. Louis Blues is as follows, the Kings and the National Hockey League announced Thursday night (some of this information was announced yesterday by the League).

We have two teams with Defense on their minds as they prepare to meet each other. Both have great goaltenders. St Louis just happens to have two of them, Elliott and Halak. But Quick is as good as having two goalies. This will be a big defensive battle. This will also be a low scoring series. The Kings surprised the hockey world by defeating Vancouver in 3 out of 4 games. St Louis...
If you want in-depth analysis of the upcoming 2nd Round NHL Playoff Series between the Los Angeles Kings and the St. Louis Blues... then you should really check out RudyKelly's preview over at Battle of California. But if you want to hear myself, Podcaster General Jesse Cohen and Brad Lee from St. Louis Game Time talk nonsense about the upcoming battle between two teams...
Two long-time have-not franchises that took off after switching coaches midseason are among the last eight standing in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Ken Hitchcock of the St. Louis Blues and Darryl Sutter of the Los Angeles Kings both have top-shelf goaltending and the two stingiest defenses overall. Both teams dispatched of their first-round opponents in five games, too.
The LA Kings continued to play a tight, defensive game and it lead to a 3-1 win over the St. Louis Blues tonight.
Defenseman Matt Greene had the game-winning goal, as he joined Dustin Brown on a shorthanded rush and was left alone in front of the next after the original shot was stopped by Brian Elliott.
Remember two years ago when the 8th seeded Montreal Canadiens beat the heavily favored Capitals and Penguins in the first two rounds? I think that this year’s Habs are the Los Angeles Kings. They played that defensive style just well enough to beat some of those offensive first teams. The Kings sit back and clog everything up. They score when you mess up.
The St. Louis...
Dwight King received 2 for boarding for this hit on Alex Pietrangelo who did not return to the game.
