Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Brown earned a spot on the U.S. Olympic team and the honor of serving as alternate captain.Perhaps that will help ease his frustration of helping the Kings lose night after night with his offensive ineffectiveness.The man has not registered a point in his last nine games. He has a minus-8 rating this month. He has produced just 16 points in 55 games this season.Yet Team USA selected Brown to be one of its cornerstone players for its Sochi adventure. It makes you wonder if Team USA leadership actually scouted players before making these decisions.“The leadership is a big part of Dustin Brown’s game and how he plays I think,” Team USA coach Dan Bylsma said. “How does that translate to a short tournament? I hope in five or six games over there – for people that are talking about that stuff after the game – in a six or seven game tournament, hopefully he has a chance to do that in four of those games.”Kings fans would love to see Brown show some of his fa...

Kings can't keep up against high-powered Penguins

LOS ANGELES -- It has become clear that the Kings are desperately seeking some semblance of spark. Thursday night's dismal showing against the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins showed a team out of sorts and unable to keep up. The Kings gave up three goals in the first period, ultimately falling 4-1 to Pittsburgh, losing their second straight and their seventh in the last eight...

Offensive woes continue, Kings shut out by Flyers

LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th NHL goal, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. It was the 22nd career shutout and third this season for Mason, who stopped 33 shots in a 5-0 win against Detroit last Tuesday after getting pulled by coach Craig Berube...

Kings Get Shutout, Are Therefore The Kings by   Jack Weber

Since my most recent post last Saturday, when the Los Angeles Kings lost 3-0 to the Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium, the Kings have responded with two goals in three games. No, not two goals in each game, which wouldn’t even be very good (though the Kings would kill for that kind of production right now); a combined two goals [...]

Dustin Brown named alternate captain for Team USA

Zach Parise of the Minnesota Wild will be the captain of the U.S. men's hockey team at the Sochi Olympics. Minnesota defenseman Ryan Suter and center Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings will be the alternate captains, U.S. general manager David Poile announced Friday. The 29-year-old Parise was an alternate captain at the Vancouver Olympics four years ago, scoring the goal...

Flyers-Kings Preview

Jeff Carter is part of the problem why the Los Angeles Kings aren't scoring. Perhaps playing against his first NHL team will help him break out of a drought. Carter will face the Philadelphia Flyers for the first time Saturday at Staples Center, where former Kings Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn will play as visitors for the first time. Los Angeles (30-20-6) fell to 1-6...

RECAP: Game 54. Pens beat Kings 4-1.

  If there were ever an example of the first shift of the game deciding things, this game would have it. The Penguins came into Staples Center like bats out of Hell. Bortuzzo wrecked someone. And when Evgeni Malkin scored 57 seconds in, the Kings were stunned, and they never truly recovered.   Even though the Kings are struggling, there was a different feel...

Mason, Flyers shut down anemic Kings

By no means was it the cleanest game the Flyers had played in a while. Nor was it particularly fast or flashy. All that matters, the Flyers have recited ad nauseam this season, is two points in the standings. With a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings, they have just that and handed the Kings their seventh loss in their last eight games. The Kings and Flyers hadn’t faced each...
