Found June 07, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
There are times I’m tempted to send the extra-large pot of coffee to the east-coast media, usually when they start up on “where did come from?” This usually precedes the team being scheduled in for every east coast swing for the next season, which at least solves the problem for that player. Trouble is—there are always more players out there in Pacific Time land! In other words—Jonathan Quick—he’s been here all along!Continue reading "Quick!  Don’t Miss Him!"

L.A. news anchor flubs Kings goalie's name

It hasn’t been a good week for the local news people. Earlier this week, some poor lady thought game four in the Heat-Celtics series ended in a tie. Another Los Angeles news woman had an issue reporting on the Los Angeles Kings 4-0 win against the New Jersey Devils in game three of the Stanley Cup Finals. A Los Angeles news anchor, let me repeat…a Los Angeles news anchor called...

The championship flurry of the King’s Jonathan Quick.

If you hadn’t heard the NHL’s hottest name before this playoffs, you certainly should be familiar with it by now after the outstanding play of the Los Angeles Kings’ Jonathan Quick, who has all but secured the franchise’s first Stanley Cup in its 45 year history.

Local TV news broadcasts continue to fail at covering Stanley Cup (video)

Sure, it appears that overall, pretty much nobody is watching the Stanley Cup Finals here in the States, but one should be able to reasonably expect that at least local television stations in the markets of the two teams competing for Lord Stanley’s Cup would have their act together and be able to provide accurate [...]

Jonathan Quick Is Beasting The Stanley Cup Playoffs

Jon Quick is in full beast mode. He is leading the 8th seed Kings through the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Leading may not be the correct word. A word like juggernaut – as cliche as it sounds — comes to mind. Quick showed glimpses of this last season. However, that wasn’t the first time I saw Quick’s potential. Hockey East is the best collegiate hockey league. In fact, there...

Back at practice, Kings again have eyes on prize

Jonathan Quick was back in lockdown mode: preparing for Game 5 of the finals as though it were Game 1, and not the Los Angeles Kings' second chance to claim the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. As he did on media day in advance of the series opener against the New Jersey Devils, the Kings' stellar goalie faced reporters on Friday with a baseball cap yanked...

Admiring Jonathan Quick

While there is no doubt that New York Rangers’ fans love their netminder, Henrik Lundqvist, these fans should know that there is another goaltender out there who they should admire. Right now, that is Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings. Quick has his hockey club one win away from the team’s first Cup in franchise history and has done so in unbelievable fashion. Quick...

Kings could finally bask in a Stanley Cup moment

A fan outside Staples Center on Monday seemed to capsulize the plight of Kings fans. Above the number on the back of his Kings jersey, instead of his name, were the words love and hate. Kings fans have a moment they can simply love. After 45 years, three owners, two lockouts, one bankruptcy and countless promises, the Kings are poised to deliver. With a victory tonight over the...

Mike Augello: Leafs Mailbag – June 6th Edition

In between watching the goaltender’s duel between Martin Brodeur and Jonathan Quick, it's time to answer some of your questions about the decisions the Leafs will be making in the next month, which arguably will be the most critical 30 days of Brian Burke’s tenure as general manager in Toronto. ‏ @AIHHockey asks: Most can fathom Luongo and a good draft pick in...

Devils confident despite long odds

The Devils wore wide smiles and laughed easily. They had a collective swagger and espoused their belief in themselves. If you didn't know better, you'd swear it was the Devils who have a three games to one lead in the Stanley Cup Final. Instead, they enter Saturday night's Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final at the Prudential Center trailing the Los Angeles Kings three...

Another LA media blunder: Jonathan Swift

[youtube]cBdAeFOQzQA[/youtube] Are local media stations in Los Angeles suddenly in on the joke? It seems like after each game the Kings play a different station uses an incorrect logo, team name or butchers a key player's name. The media coverage after LA's big Game 3 victory provided yet another gem as the Fox station in Los Angeles incorrectly called Jonathan Quick by...

Homeward Down: Kings Continue NHL Trend of Futility

With the Kings just one win away from their championship since joining the NHL in 1967, Phil Pritchard, the "Keeper of the Cup," and his best friend, a nearly three-foot tall silver chalice, were in attendance this evening at the STAPLES Center to take in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. On second thought, perhaps that was the problem. The Devils, led by a brilliant...

Devils 3, Kings 1

LOS ANGELES -- Having already ended two series for the Devils in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs, New Jersey's beyond-his-years rookie Adam Henrique took to keeping his team's season alive Wednesday night. Henrique did what few have done to Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, beating him with 4:31 remaining in the third period to snap a 1-1 tie and lead the Devils to a 3...
