Rules are Rules and Brendan Shanahan and his directors of player safety are nowhere to be found. Such is the inconsistencies of Shana-Ban. Okay, I know, they don't want to take away from the joy of the Stanley Cup, but it's almost a week later and its time for the league to do what they're SUPPOSED to do. Jarret Stoll should be suspended for his blind side hit that wasn't called. Steve...

DEVIL IN THE DETAILS

Did Patrik Elias nab LA's Cup-winning puck?

As the Los Angeles Kings tossed their gloves into the air and prepared to hoist the franchise's first ever Stanley Cup trophy, they left one important piece of history behind on the ice. And it appears that a New Jersey Devils player may be in possession of the historic keepsake. Devils forward Patrik Elias is the most likely suspect in the case of the missing puck. Elias, a...

Where the puck is it?

Back in 2004, Doug Mientkiewicz was accused of “stealing” the game ball that recorded the final out of the Red Sox’ first World Series win in 86 years.  It took eighteen months, but the story finally blew over – once Dougie permanently “loaned” the ball to the Baseball Hall of Fame on behalf of the [...]

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings!

Congratulations to the 2011-2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings!  I don’t think anyone really expects to see a team dominate their way through a postseason the way the Kings did…and they did it as an 8th seed.  Kudos to the entire organization, from the top all the way down to the bottom.  They were patient building this team and knew when to make a splash with some...

Congrats to the Kings

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings and their Stanley Cup. I hadn't got a chance to say that on this site quite yet, and I offer many apologies for that fact. Since I have been working on a Los Angeles Kings/Star Wars motif for about 4 years (I think), the only way to properly show how happy I am for you is with a celebration.  Of course, now that the post season is over...

L.A. Kings missing Stanley Cup puck

The Los Angeles Kings say they are missing the puck that was on the ice when the franchise won their first Stanley Cup.  Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider believes New Jersey's Patrik Elias has the puck.   "The following video of the last two minutes of the game, and the ensuing celebration, clearly shows New Jersey’s Patrik Elias flip the puck into his glove and then...

Stanley Cup Party At Wet Republic Pretty Much A Sausage Fest

Kinda disappointed this morning with the Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings and their party yesterday at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic. Just when you figure there will be multiple photos of bikini tramps drinking exotic bottled water from Lord Stanley, the Kings go and have a massive sausage party. And we’re even more disappointed that the boys are all in a private pool without a bikini...

TRH Stanley Cup Final Recap: 6 of 1

I honestly had no idea it would be like this. I figured the Los Angeles Kings would win the Stanley Cup and I'd be blogging non-stop about it until training camp starting in September. Don't get me wrong... this feeling I've had for the past 6 days is unlike anything I've ever experienced in my 25 years of being a fan of the sport of hockey. It's the perfect mixture...

How did I not know about this ahead of time?

The Kings were in on the Star Wars joke the whole time! And by that, I don't mean "the thing that I did where I wrote Los Angeles Kings into the script of Star Wars". I mean "the thing where they made three mediocre moves as a prequil to three tremendous movies".

A Vezina Trophy Battle: Lundqvist vs. Quick

There is no doubt that all three goaltenders that were nominated for the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top netminder in the regular season are all deserving of the coveted Trophy. While Nashville Predators’ goaltender Pekka Rinne had a terrific season and deserved to be nominated this season, this trophy will really be between Los Angeles Kings’ Cup winning goaltender Jonathan...
