Found January 14, 2014 on Holdout Sports:
Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick appeared to take a dive during Monday night's game against Vancouver that was so flagrant that he was called out by the team's own television announcers.As Quick was passing the puck to a teammate, Canucks forward Dale Weise came to a stop on the edge of the goal crease and lightly bumped Quick. Although Quick went down as if Weise had collided with him at full speed, Kings announcers pointed out to viewers that "you can see that nothing happened". However, Quick's flop worked as it got the attention of the referees, who gave Weise two minutes for goaltender interference penalty in the third period of the game. Here's the play at full speed:You make the call: Did Weise deserve the penalty?H/T PD. Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.

Brown's goal enough as Kings, Quick hold off Canucks in chippy game

LOS ANGELES -- Despite an awful power play performance from the Kings, they still managed to come away with a 1-0 win against the Canucks in a grueling, physical battle Monday night at the Staples Center. The two teams combined for 109 penalty minutes with nearly nine coming in the first period all at once, coming courtesy of Tom Sestito. Sestito retaliated on Jordan Nolan for what...

Preview: Blues will face Kings goalie Jonathan Quick this time around

The St. Louis Blues are on the cusp of their longest home win streak of the season, and the next opponent to visit Scottrade Center suffered a lopsided defeat there earlier this month. The Los Angeles Kings will be playing their first road game since that loss as they look to snap a five-game skid away from home Thursday night. The Blues (32-8-5) are 10-1-1 in their last 12 and bounced...

Los Angeles Kings: offensive woes continue

Dustin Brown looks to make a pass against the Predators It is not a secret that the Los Angeles Kings offense has been far from where it needs to be for the majority of this season. In 24 games without Jonathan Quick, the Kings only scored 57 goals, for an average of about 2.4. Somehow, they compiled a 13-8-3 record in those 24 games. In five games since Quick has returned the Kings...

Los Angeles Kings wear Dodger-themed warmup jerseys before game

The Los Angeles Kings hosted “Dodger Pride Night” at the Staples Center last night as they took on the Vancouver Canucks. In addition to inviting some Dodgers players to drop the puck before the game, the Kings also donned some Dodgers-themed warmup jerseys that actually didn’t look too bad. Check ‘em out: Chances are we’ll probably see these warmups again when the Kings...

Kings trade Scrivens to Oilers

The Kings on Wednesday traded goalie Ben Scrivens to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a third-round draft pick. The Oilers also acquired free agent Matt Hendricks, while goalie Devan Dubnyk heads to Nashville. Scrivens went 7-5-4 with a .931 save percentage with the Kings, but became expendable after the return of Jonathan Quick and the emergence of Martin Jones, who has impressed...

NHL Ref Mistakenly Sends Henrik Sedin, Not Daniel, to Penalty Box (Video)

The Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings racked up a combined 109 penalty minutes Monday night, and the near-constant infractions became a little too much for the officials to keep track of. It also didn’t help that they had to differentiate between two players who quite literally look exactly the same. Canucks winger Daniel Sedin was whistled for a delayed penalty midway through...

Videos- Canucks Play Tough But Can’t Score Against The Kings

from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province, At the end of a bitter bad-blood battle, the Kings would claim a 1-0 victory, but this wasn’t about the points or the fact the Kings have four regular-season wins over the Canucks for the first time in 23 years. It was about making a point and maintaining a resilient collective mindset that Tortorella has been drilling into his troops...

Referee sends wrong Sedin twin to the Penalty Box

Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin interfered with Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty at the blue line and was called for hooking.  Unfortunately for the referee, he sent Daniel’s twin brother Henrik to the box, leaving Henrik very confused and with a very good claim that he didn’t actually do it.  Quite frankly, I’m surprised that this hasn’t happened before...

Brian Wilson, Jerry Hairston Jr. make ceremonial puck drop at Kings game (Video)

On Monday, the Los Angeles Kings held Dodgers Night as a cross-promotional opportunity in line with their upcoming Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium on January 25th. To honor the occasion, the ceremonial puck drop before the game against Vancouver was conducted by recently retired Jerry Hairston Jr. and current reliever Brian Wilson, who were both given customized Kings jerseys...

Canucks vs Kings Game Preview – January 13, 2013

Image Courtesy: The Vancouver Canucks play the Los Angeles Kings for the 2nd time in less than two weeks with a Monday night 7:30pm tilt at Staples Center.  All Pacific Division games are important, but the Canucks will be sure to want to avenge an embarrassing 3-1 loss on January 4th. The Canucks were thoroughly dominated in the last two periods of that game...

Ben Scrivens traded to Edmonton Oilers

Ben Scrivens must've thought he had it pretty good, getting traded away from the perpetual train wreck that are the Toronto Maple Leafs to the well-oiled locomotive that are the Los Angeles Kings. Sure, he'd back-up Jonathan Quick, but the games he did appear in he would have the benefit of a competent team and coach.  Or not. The Kings decided Scrivens was expendable...

Wayne Gretzky adds class and excitement to NHL's historic Dodger Stadium game

Los Angeles -- What started out as a hard-to-believe concept -- an outdoor hockey game at sunny Dodger Stadium -- became a reality Monday when the NHL's "ice truck" rolled into Chavez Ravine following its long journey from another outdoor game at "The Big House" in Michigan. On hand was no less than hockey royalty, as "The Great One," Wayne Gretzky...
