The St. Louis Blues have earned a couple of 2-1 victories over the Kings and suffered a 1-0 loss at Los Angeles. You can expect more of the same for the rest of the series.“If you look at the series, 5-on-5 is so tough,” Kings coach Darryl Sutter told reporters after Saturday night’s game. “There are a lot of little battles going on that only the players appreciate or understand.

Blues goaltender Brian Elliott and Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick both played very well down the stretch for their defensive-minded teams.“Do your homework before the series,” Sutter said. “The two teams are very even. Gave up the fewest shots in the conference, one and two. Both goaltenders – everybody understands who they are and what they are.”These games are coming down to one bounce, one break or one breakdown.“I think it’s great, because you can’t take a shift off,” Kings winger Justin Williams told re

Matthew Barry: Did You Have Any Doubt?

Who doesn't like Mondays? The Kings and Blues finally stopped beating the sugar honey iced tea out of each other and played some great hockey!

Chip McCleary: Game 4: Blues/Kings - Recap: School Was In Session

Slava Voynov, LA - while he didn't hit the scoresheet, I thought Voynov might have been the Kings best defenseman last night ... and that's considering Doughty had a pretty damn good...
