The Hockey Guys:

My good friend Michael Stuart is the founder of the hockey website www.betweenthebenches.com and is a revered Los Angeles Kings fan that provides some of the best coverage on not just the Kings but on the ongoing events of the hockey world in general. Writing for different hockey websites, Mike and I have decided to team up for the Stanley Cup Finals and provide a game-by-game Q&A session after each contest. I was away over the weekend, which explains why the first installment of this Stanley Cup Finals feature is a tad delayed but rest assured this is going to become a routine ordeal throughout the duration of this pivotal postseason series. Featured on this piece are my set of questions that Mike has answered, whereas the set of questions he’s presented to me can be found here.
Q: The regulation goals scored in this game were both firsts for Devil’s defenseman Anton Volchenkov and King’s center Colin Fraser. For the most part, would you say th...

The Los Angeles Kings' 15-3 postseason record can't be deceiving, can it?
For a team that has won all 10 of its road games and faltered at its chance to become the first team since the 1988 Edmonton Oilers to post a 16-2 playoff record en route to winning the Stanley Cup, the margin between winning and losing isn't as stark as their record indicates.
Remember the 2001...
Check out the video.
KTLA-TV news reporter Allie Mac Kay spanked the NJ Devils mascot during a live morning news broadcast in Los Angeles.
Mac Kay is a LA Kings fan and she really showed who’s the boss by spanking the mascot’s butt hard.
“Allie pulled out her bedroom moves,” joked co-anchor Chris Schauble.
Three games into the Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup Final series against the New Jersey Devils, the only remaining question is whether the parade route will travel down Figueroa or Olympic.
Amongst the backdrop of constant "We Want the Cup" chants by a Staples Center record crowd of 18,764, the eighth-seeded Kings improved to 15-2 in the 2012 postseason with an emphatic...
from Kevin Allen of USA Today, Quick had a 22-save shutout in Monday’s 4-0 victory to lower his goals-against average to 1.36 and improve his save percentage to .950.
Quick’s postseason goals-against average is the best recorded by a Stanley Cup Final goalie, with a minimum of 10 games played, since Frank Brimsek’s 1.25 in 12 games for the Boston Bruins in 1939.
Only three NHL teams have rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series, and just one - the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs - did it in the Stanley Cup finals.
So the New Jersey Devils will either make history, or soon be history.
With a 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the finals on Monday night, the Devils were pushed to the brink of elimination after a 102-point...
The Los Angeles Kings contributed half of the $100,000 reward being
offered Wednesday for information leading to the capture of the
person who shot dead a one-year-old boy amid apparent gang warfare
in the city.
All the video highlights of the 2012 NHL Playoffs.
The Los Angeles Kings took a commanding 3-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup Finals after last night’s 4-0 win over the New Jersey Devils. And to add insult to injury, a few rather creative Kings fans who were seated right behind the Devils’ bench held up huge cardboard heads of ‘Jersey Shore’ cast members.
Well done, Kings fans. Well done indeed.

In the deal the Kings are guaranteed a sum of approximately $250 million.
The deal, as reported by the LA Times, not only paints a clear picture of...
