Many athletes shared their reactions to Jason Collins coming out on Monday. Most sports figures were supportive of Collins, while some others were not. The best reaction of all may have come from Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Penner: Honestly I don’t care if you are gay or straight as my teammate. As long as you don’t listen to Nickelback. #courage — Dustin Penner (@Dustinpenner25) April 30, 2013 It’s hard to beat that tweet. Well played, Penner. And why is it that everyone hates Nickelback so much? Photo: Twitter/Nickelback

The Los Angeles Kings’ Dustin Penner has long been known for his dry sense of humor. It turns out that not only is Penner a really funny guy, but he has some solid taste in music, too.
A lot of athletes have been weighing in with their opinions on having a gay teammate in the wake of Jason Collins‘ announcement. Most responses have been positive, and Penner’s thoughts on the...
The Los Angeles Kings may still be the last possessors of the silver championship chalice, but on Tuesday night, their standout goalie gave up the first game of the playoffs on a silver platter.
Jonathan Quick watched a night of hard work disappear in overtime against the St. Louis Blues, losing the game for the Kings in the worst kind of way. After logging 73 minutes and turning...
Jonathan Quick got much of the credit during the Los Angeles Kings' run to the Stanley Cup last year. The goalie also says he's to blame for the Kings' two losses to St. Louis in their current series.
Quick's teammates know that's simply not true.
A goalie isn't supposed to score goals - and unless the Kings start finding the Blues' net in Game 3 on...

s/t to Kukla Korner... So, L.A. Kings forward Dustin Brown was suspended two games a week and a half ago for elbowing the Minnesota Wild forward Jason Pominville, probably ending his season and now we see Brown doing this. Last night, Brown was assessed a two minute minor at the 16:58 mark of the first period for tripping Blues forward Jaden Schwartz, but you can see this could...
from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,
Quick was good enough. He stopped 23 shots and, before Jackman's effort, yielded only a goal that caromed off Patrik Berglund's foot at 3:44 of the third period.
The Kings' offense, though, wasn't nearly adequate. The Kings have scored two goals on Brian Elliott in two games: one after Quick was pulled for an extra skater...
Some people claim that winning Game 2 in a series is more important than winning Game 1 - but this series may be different. It may be Game 3 that's the "must win" game. That doesn't mean any of the first 2 games weren't (aren't) important - but they were (are) important to each team for different reasons. For the Blues, they had to win Game 1. A loss...
The Los Angeles Kings made playoff hockey look almost easy last season, steamrolling four straight opponents on the way to their first Stanley Cup title.
The Kings are back to NHL reality this spring, and it's considerably less pretty.
They've managed just two goals in two games against the hungry St. Louis Blues. Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie Jonathan Quick, nearly...
KINGS 1, BLUES 2 (OT)

There's nothing quite like opening round playoff hockey in St. Louis on a Tuesday night. After years of toiling in mediocrity, the Blues have made it back to the playoffs for the second straight...
Have you calmed down after last night's win? No? Me neither, but let's stop watching the video of Jackman's winner for a few minutes and talk about last night's game.
Just like Game 1, Game 2 was a brutal physical affair. Big hits littered the game, occurring on nearly every single play or possession. The Kings were looking to bring a more intense effort after...
After the Kings were dominated for most of a 2-1 overtime loss in St. Louis to open this series against the Blues on Wednesday, Darryl Sutter decided to make some changes to forward lines today. Last game, the lines featured Mike Richards between Dustin Brown and Justin Williams, Anze Kopitar between Kyle Clifford and Jeff [...]
Last night, Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket had a rare night when it had three postseason games to air on its two channels. The Prime Ticket chanel had an NHL/NBA playoff doubleheader with Game 1 of Kings-St. Louis followed by Game 5 of the Memphis-Clippers series. On Fox Sports West, it was Game 1 of the Detroit-Anaheim NHL Playoff series.
As the Kings-Blues game was winding...
