<a href="" class="moshare-button-hor" data-channel="wordpress-1.2.8" data-message="If you missed the drama that took place in the final three minutes of OT between the L.A. Kings and Phoenix Coyotes last night, then you missed some solid entertainment. Moments before Dustin Penner netted the overtime winner, Dustin Brown made a "controversial" hit on Coyotes forward Michal Rozsival. There was no penalty on the play and the Phoenix Coyotes were so incensed that when it came time for the handshake line, Martin Hanzal and Shane Doan had some choice words for the Kings Captain. Brown didn't back down either, to the point where Mike Richards had give him a little shove and tell him to keep it moving. The handshake line is usually a time to congratulate each other on a hard fought series and put those personal feelings aside, but not this time: In a post game interview, Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith eve...

Can the Coyotes build on their success?

Heartbroken, hurting, and frankly pissed off.If you look at the faces of this Phoenix Coyotes team, they were clearly upset by last night's outcome. This rag-tag bunch of veterans, journeymen, and a few choice young players capable of playing in such a demanding system, were all forced to pack their bags and start their offseason.The group of players currently assembled, we can...

Jonathan Quick, Penalty Kill Have Made Los Angeles the All-Time Kings of the Road

Temperatures soared to near record highs Tuesday in Phoenix, where the mercury climbed to 107 degrees. But not even that desert heat is as scorching as the Los Angeles Kings when they take their act on the road. Granted, the Kings have been pretty good wherever they've played this postseason, rolling through the first three rounds of the playoffs in just 14 games. But when they...

L.A. Kings Brilliant Infographic

<a href="" class="moshare-button-hor" data-channel="wordpress-1.2.8" data-message="In an effort to straighten out all of the confusion lately, the L.A.

Video: Dustin Penner’s rebound goal clinches Stanley Cup Finals trip for Los Angeles Kings

The Los Angeles Kings are going back to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1993, when they lost the series 4-1 to the Montreal Canadiens.  With a roster tweaked with the acquisitions of Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, while retaining the core led by Dustin Brown, the later part of the season saw the Kings make a comeback to relevance from obscurity with...

All Hail to the Kings…

     The LA Kings defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 in Overtime last night to win the Clarence Campbell Bowl that is awarded to the Western Conference Champions. The Kings won the Western Conference Final in 5 games & never really faced a challenge from the Pacific Division Champion Coyotes.      In the conference semi-finals, the Kings swept the Central Division Champion...

Play On

Last night, during the Coyotes game 5 loss to the Kings, Mike Smith lost his catching glove while L.A. was attacking and play continued because it was supposed to. Smith was pissed, of course, but the refs can't make up rules as they go. I suspect there will generally be two sides of this discussion: Goalies who want to be as protected as possible and forwards who, like me, pictured...

Car-pe Diem

It all started with an innocent late night tweet... That's right. I had spent the better part of a few hours watching videos like this. And then... within seconds of posting that Tweet... And then finally... just like he's been doing all playoffs long... Colin Fraser dropped some knowledge on our asses.  Colin Fraser tweeted at me. I could almost cry. Within...

But if anything, the frustration is worse. “Your goal is to win, to win it all. We thought we had a shot at it. But we...
