Dean Lombardi patient with Slava Voynov

Dean Lombardi one part parent and one part NHL general manager worked both roles the other day when he talked about the growing pains of Kings defenseman Slava Voynov. Lombardi the Kings' GM does not have children for the record. But you could say that he has 23 of them the Kings' roster on any given day.

Kings hang tough for 2-1 shootout victory over Predators

To even reach the highlight package known as the shootout — in which Anze Kopitar won it for the Kings in the third round — the Kings had to do some decidedly unglamorous and old-school work Thursday night. The Kings had to kill off a four-on-three in overtime against Nashville which meant facing the weapon of defenseman Shea Weber's shot. They may not have emerged unscathed...

Stars-Kings Preview

The Los Angeles Kings managed a successful road trip despite a sputtering offense, instead relying on strong goaltending. They may need more than just that against a Dallas Stars team coming off a win over a previously unbeaten opponent.

Rinne stops 29, Quick 34 in goaltending grudge match

The Nashville Predators used to shutter when they saw the Los Angeles Kings on the schedule. Not only did the Kings win the Stanley Cup in 2012 and then brought back the same roster after the lockout but back-up goaltender Jonathan Bernier always seemed to have their number. When he donned the black and silver, Bernier was 7-1-0 all-time against the Predators, including three shutouts...

The Hangover: Quick defeats Rinne in goaltending duel

As expected, it was a goaltending dual between arguably the best two netminders of the National Hockey League -- Jonathan Quick and Pekka Rinne. Thursday night, Quick was able to get the best of the Nashville Predators, stopping thirty-four shots, while Rinne made twenty-nine saves in his losing effort. Lack of offense has given the Predators yet another loss this season.
