Found November 02, 2011 on
Much of what the Kings did in the offseason was based on building a strong second line. It’s still a work in progress, but the framework is in place for what could be a successful trio. The incumbent, Dustin Brown, holds down the ri...

Kings Trying To Find Penner’s Offensive Side

from Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider, Will a return to the third line get Dustin Penner’s production going? Penner spent the previous two games in a first-line look, with Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams, and the result was one shot on goal, one minor penalty and a minus-2 rating. So, the Kings will try something different. With first-line winger Simon Gagne expected to return...

The Los Angeles Kings’ Dustin Penner problem

Dustin Penner has been a special kind of terrible for the Los Angeles Kings over his last 27 games, which include six in the postseason. Over the stretch, Penner has scored one goal and two assists, skating to a minus-8. That includes a 12-game scoreless streak to end the 2010-11 regular season, and his one assist in nine games this season for the Kings. It's not just the stats...

Kings, Ducks don't want to profit at NBA's expense

The NBA lockout seems a golden opportunity for NHL teams to win advertisers and woo basketball fans who have free time and unspent money. But that's more complicated than letting everyone know the NHL is in full swing while the NBA is idle. "Work stoppages aren't good for any of us," NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. "And I get asked a lot about how we&...

Pens Head West for 2, Kennedy Practices, Sid’s Return?

The Pens headed for the West coast today to square off with the Sharks on Thursday and the Kings on Saturday.  Both games should be a tough test for the Pens as the Sharks have won 5 of their last 6 and the Kings are anchored by one of the best goalies in the NHL, Jonathan Quick.  West coast trips are always difficult for east coast teams but for the Penguins, it may be especially...


Well, November is upon us. Or as I like to call it... the month when the Los Angeles Kings start growing mustaches and play like complete ****. Don't believe me? 2010-20115-7 2009-20107-6 2008-20097-4-2 2007-20084-6-1 2006-20075-6-2 Sure, 2008-2009 was alright, but a lot of good finishing 26th overall did that season. Of course, all the Los Angeles Kings are growing...

Coming On Strong

When the Los Angeles Kings skated off the ice for the final time in 2010-11, the disappointment was palpable, the dejection fresh. And while Kings center Trevor Lewis was just as upset as anyone over the premature playoff exit, the 24-year old was...

Let The Good Times Roll

Oilers extend winning streak to 6 with 3-0 win over the Kings The Edmonton Oilers began their six game road trip in Los Angeles against a team that featured several ex Oilers; Matt Greene, Jarret Stoll, Ethan Moreau, and most recent addition Dustin Penner.

Edmonton Oilers (7-2-2) at Los Angeles Kings (6-3-2), 10:30 p.m. (ET)

Even with the Kings seemingly on the verge of becoming consistent contenders in the Western Conference, the lure of returning home was just too much for Ryan Smyth to ignore.

G12 Oilers at Kings

In the early days of expansion, the city of angels pursued "name" hockey players just like New York City. Because of it, most of the early stars for the Los Angeles Kings were acquired for picks and prospects. It did not go well in the standings. Rogie Vachon was a helluva goalie, and Marcel Dionne (above photo) was an exceptional offensive talent. The universal draft was...
