It's acceptable in the NHL to have one dominant line if it's also being supported by some decent play from the other three lines. The Los Angeles Kings, though, have been far too top-heavy of late.
A couple weeks ago, in search of any time of scoring boost, coach Darryl Sutter put his top three scorers on the same line, with Anze Kopitar centering Dustin Brown and Justin...
Darryl Sutter knows a thing or two about great defencemen.
Granted, he played forward, he’s coached some talent from the Chicago Blackhawks. More specifically, Chris Chelios.
According to L.A. Kings Insider, Sutter had some kind words about the 22-year-old blue liner:
“Drew, he has done a good job. That’s the thing I like about Drew, the way he plays against top...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Peter Mueller had the go-ahead goal in the fifth game of his inspirational comeback, Cody McLeod scored on a breakaway and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 25 saves, leading the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.
Kings goalie Jonathan Quick came up short on his 26th birthday after stopping 28 shots. Colorado's other...
The Kings' Dustin Penner has turned a potentially embarrassing 'pancake incident' into a PR plus. Now if only he could score — he has three goals in 36 games heading into Saturday's game.After missing a game because of back spasms that began when he sat down for a pancake breakfast, Dustin Penner cleverly turned a potentially embarrassing incident into a running...
Justin Williams extended his point streak to seven games (3-6=9)
Anze Kopitar has eight points in the last seven games (4-4=8)
Dustin Brown has six points in the last seven games (3-3=6)
The Kings have still earn...
Worn down by Colorado's physical play in the early going, the Kings get a strong effort from only the line of Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown and Justin Williams.One effective line and one goal were not nearly enough for the Kings on Saturday night, a refrain that is becoming all too familiar.
Center Mike Richards praises the efforts of goaltender Jonathan Quick, who may need to be at his best again Saturday. L.A. is 0-2 against the Avalanche this season.When: 7 :30 p.m.
The Ottawa Senators and Los Angeles Kings were both handed disappointing losses over the weekend.
While the Senators could have a hard time regrouping given their lack of road success in this series, the Kings haven't been able to get much going at home of late.
Ottawa looks for just its second win in 13 all-time visits to Los Angeles when it faces a Kings team hoping to avoid...
The Fourth In A Five-Part Series
LAKings.com asked six different Kings players how six of their teammates “help the LA Kings win hockey games.”
Here were their responses:
KINGS TEAMMATE ON HOW MIKE RICHARDS HELPS THE CLUB ...
The Los Angeles Kings have scored one goal or less six times in their last 11 games and somehow managed to suffer just one regulation loss over that stretch.
The Senators had a club-record road point streak halted over the weekend. Avoiding consecutive road losses could be problematic with a trip to Los Angeles now on the docket.
In 48 games this season, the Kings have scored 3 goals or more only 13 times!!!
Their power play is so low even whale poop is higher.
The Kings don't have a 2nd round pick (Richards deal) or a 3rd round pick (Penner deal), and they're not going to deal anyone who can actually SCORE.
So if your team is going to rebuild, or you need a shakeup (hello Buffalo), think...
The Los Angeles Kings keep coming up short when games go past regulation. The Colorado Avalanche have thrived in those situations.
Those trends held true the last time the Avs visited Los Angeles, but the Kings still can extend their home point streak over Colorado to seven Saturday night.
Since coach Darryl Sutter replaced the fired Terry Murray on Dec. 22, Los Angeles (23-15...
