The Kings captured two bolts of lightning in a bottle in the opening 12 minutes, 7 seconds of Game 2 of their second-round playoff series against the Ducks on Monday at the Honda Center. Then they spent the final 47:53 with a big white-and-black bus parked in front of their net. Or so it seemed. Marian Gaborik and Alec Martinez scored first-period goals and Dwight King added an empty-net strike in the final minute as the Kings managed to parlay a defensive gem into a 3-1 victory in Game 2 and a two-games-to-none lead in the best-of-7 series. Game 3 is Thursday at Staples Center. “We’re not taking anything off the gas pedal, trust me,” Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said after playing a team-leading 26:25, down from his 33:06 in a 3-2 overtime victory in Game 1. “Everyone in here (the Kings’ dressing room) knows how hard it is to win playoff games.” The Kings’ formula for success in Game 2 was similar to the one they used to frustrate and, ultimately, defeat the San Jose Sharks i...

Kings on a roll, in control of Freeway Faceoff after Game 2 win

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- One game at a time: It's a cliche right out of the Crash Davis handbook but it's been the key to the remarkable postseason run that the Los Angeles Kings suddenly find themselves on.   Monday night at the Honda Center, the Kings played Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals like it was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. They're backs might not...

Kings move toward Southern California crown with 2nd win over Ducks

  Jonathan Quick made 36 saves, Marian Gaborik scored his third goal in two games, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in their second-round series.

Kings return home knowing there's no time to let up

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- After two games in their second playoffs series of the postseason, the Kings find themselves in a considerably better position than they were in the last series. However, more than anyone, the Kings know that it can take only one game to change that. And the manor in which they have won both games against Anaheim in the Western Conference Semifinals has been...

Kings defense takes a hit

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Teemu Selanne's first-period hit on the Kings' Robyn Regehr was all his Ducks teammates could talk about following Saturday night's Western Conference semifinal series opener. But Regehr's Kings teammates -- and his head coach especially -- were less anxious to talk about it. Regehr did not return to action Saturday and with the Kings already...

Injured Defensemen May Be A Concern For The Kings

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, "Not going to go anywhere with Regehr or Mitchell," said Sutter. "It does me no good to talk about our injured players, just helps the other team." What we do know is that Regehr and Mitchell are injured -- two-thirds of the left side of L.A.'s defensive corps -- two playoff-savvy veterans who are hard to replace. And that...

WATCH: Jonathan Quick punches Corey Perry in the nuts

Jonathan Quick was less than pleased with Corey Perry, noted pest, invading his personal space in the crease during Game 2 in Anaheim, and the Kings goaltender voiced his displeasure by delivering a swift blocker right to the nuts of the Ducks forward. The nutshot earned Quick a two-minute minor for “roughing.” I’m sure he’ll say it was well worth it. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Corey Perry’s pest game remains strong, gets punched in nuts by Jonathan Quick (vids)

To say that Anaheim Ducks winger Corey Perry’s troll game has been strong thus far in his team’s Western Conference Semifinals series against the Los Angeles Kings would be a major understatement. In fact, the ability of Perry, one of the preeminent pests in the NHL, to get inside the heads (or glove, or crease) […] The post Corey Perry’s pest game remains strong, gets punched...

In Quick we trust

Let's rewind a few months. Jonathan Quick is fresh off a disappointing fourth-place finish at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games, and after a few bungled performances throughout the year (see him score on himself against the Rangers in October 2013 here and then become the victim of some bad reffing and bad luck against the Red Wings in January here), some hockey fans and aficionados...

NHL Playoffs Game 2- Los Angeles Kings at Anaheim Ducks Preview
