LOS ANGELES -- Having already ended two series for the Devils in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs, New Jersey's beyond-his-years rookie Adam Henrique took to keeping his team's season alive Wednesday night. Henrique did what few have done to Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, beating him with 4:31 remaining in the third period to snap a 1-1 tie and lead the Devils to a 3-1 Game 4 victory at a jam-packed Staples Center. The goal stunned a record crowd of 18,867 into silence. Ilya Kovalchuk then followed with his first goal of the series, a shot into an empty net with 19.1 seconds left that denied the Kings a chance to win their first title in 45 years of existence. Game 5 will be Saturday in Newark, where the Kings will take a 3-1 series lead. The Devils took advantage of a turnover at the Kings' blue line. New Jersey forward David Clarkson shot a cross-ice pass over to Henrique, who settled the puck and then took the shot that gave his team new life. Henrique, wh...

It hasn’t been a good week for the local news people. Earlier this week, some poor lady thought game four in the Heat-Celtics series ended in a tie. Another Los Angeles news woman had an issue reporting on the Los Angeles Kings 4-0 win against the New Jersey Devils in game three of the Stanley Cup Finals. A Los Angeles news anchor, let me repeat…a Los Angeles news anchor called...
If you hadn’t heard the NHL’s hottest name before this playoffs, you certainly should be familiar with it by now after the outstanding play of the Los Angeles Kings’ Jonathan Quick, who has all but secured the franchise’s first Stanley Cup in its 45 year history.

Jonathan Quick was back in lockdown mode: preparing for Game 5 of the finals as though it were Game 1, and not the Los Angeles Kings' second chance to claim the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.
As he did on media day in advance of the series opener against the New Jersey Devils, the Kings' stellar goalie faced reporters on Friday with a baseball cap yanked...
Kings goalie Jonathan Quick
It looks like the end is nigh for the New Jersey Devils. After suffering a brutal 4-0 loss at L.A. last night they are now down 3-0 in the series. A poor power play combined with the outstanding play of Kings goalie Jonathan Quick doomed the Devils last night. New Jersey was 0-6 on the power play which included a minute long 5-on-3 in the first period...
There are times I’m tempted to send the extra-large pot of coffee to the east-coast media, usually when they start up on “where did come from?” This usually precedes the team being scheduled in for every east coast swing for the next season, which at least solves the problem for that player. Trouble is—there are always more players out there in Pacific Time land!
We get it. That Jonathan Quick fellow is rather good at this game.
He’s kept the Devils to just two goals in three full contests, and is as big a reason as any the Kings are one game away from hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup.
But this New Jersey squad is not one starved for offensive firepower, especially with the man advantage. However, their inability to cash in on the power...
Going into game 4, the Devils faced a monumental task, or more accurately, a number of tasks. They had to solve Jonathon Quick, find a way to stop the Kings momentum and extend the series to game 5. There was no tomorrow. It was lose or go home. Thankfully Adam Henrique came through in yet another huge moment for the Devils and here we are, preparing for Game 5.
The tasks aren’t...
The New Jersey Devils staved off elimination with a stifling 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center. They received goals from Patrik Elias, Adam Henrique, and an empty-netter from Ilya Kovalchuk. Tune in to Game 5 at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, Saturday night at 8pm on NBC.
A fan outside Staples Center on Monday seemed to capsulize the plight of Kings fans. Above the number on the back of his Kings jersey, instead of his name, were the words love and hate.
Kings fans have a moment they can simply love. After 45 years, three owners, two lockouts, one bankruptcy and countless promises, the Kings are poised to deliver.
With a victory tonight over the...
Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? Does the guy who sits next to you at work look like a tool on a daily basis? Does your dog lick his balls in an odd fashion? Is your neighbor working on some sort of outer space vehicle behind his shed? We want your WTF photos.

Are local media stations in Los Angeles suddenly in on the joke? It seems like after each game the Kings play a different station uses an incorrect logo, team name or butchers a key player's name.
The media coverage after LA's big Game 3 victory provided yet another gem as the Fox station in Los Angeles incorrectly called Jonathan Quick by...
LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings are one win away from putting a Hollywood ending on one of the most spectacular playoff runs in NHL history. Jonathan Quick made 22 saves in his third shutout of the postseason, Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams each had a goal and an assist, and the Kings rolled to the brink of the franchise's first title, beating the New Jersey Devils 4-0...
