As you've all heard by now, Dustin Penner and Alec Martinez are on the IR and have been replaced by the cheaper and more efficient labor of Russians. With both Andrei Loktionov and Slava Voynov heading to Los Angeles from Manchester, I haven't seen this many Russians invading the West Coast since Red Dawn. After Alex Frolov, the Kings history of young Russian players (sorry, Alex Ponikarovsky) doesn't run all that deep. Names like Vitali Yachmenev, Denis Grebeshkov and Maxim Kuznetsov are the most talented young Russians that ha...

In a perfect world the Anaheim Ducks would only be required to show up for the third period and begin their season in February.
Ever since their Stanley Cup season in 2006-07, the Ducks, like clockwork, have gotten off to slow starts. Their record through 17 games the past five seasons is a combined 36-38-11.
That includes a 6-8-3 start to this season, with only two victories in...
Corey Perry may have won the MVP in 2010/11 but he isn’t looking like he will be in the running this year. After 17 games played he has 11 points. This puts him on pace for a 53 point season, which would be his lowest total since 2006/07.
Perry has become the target for his opposition. Teams have keyed in on him more than his teammates - especially Ryan Getzlaf and Teemu...
Projected to compete for the Pacific Division and Western Conference lead, the Kings and Ducks instead are struggling for stability as they prepare for their first encounters this season, a home-and-home series that begins Wednesday at Staples Center.

Having won only two games in the past 12, the Ducks will need to do something, fast, to turn things around. Nothing like a good old-fashioned rivalry with the team up the road to get you motivated!The Ducks will play the Los Angeles Kings in a back to back series on Wednesday at Staples Center and then Thursday night at the Honda Center. There will be no time to lose momentum...
Waiting must have been the hardest part for two talented Los Angeles Kings prospects.
Slava Voynov and Andrei Loktionov, already armed with encouraging, though brief, NHL performances, will be back in the lineup when the Kings take part in the season's first two installments of the Freeway Faceoff against the Anaheim Ducks at STAPLES Center on Wednesday and Honda Center on Thursday...
With some of the best forwards in the game, the Anaheim Ducks' scoring woes certainly come as a surprise.
Things aren't about to get any easier with a home-and-home set against one of the league's stingiest defenses.
The Ducks try to avoid an eighth loss in nine games when they visit the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night.
Three-time 30-goal scorer Bobby Ryan, two...
It's not been the best three weeks for the Anaheim Ducks, who are 6-8-3 heading into their Battle of California matchup with the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night.
They're 2-5-3 in their last 10 games, including a 1-2 homestand after a long Eastern Conference road trip. A bit more concerning: Jonas Hiller is 5-7-3 in 15 games with a rather large 3.10 GAA; meanwhile,...
