KINGS 1, AVALANCHE 3 Hey, Fox Sports West... is there anyway you can tell me which LA Kings player was injured  and what the injury was and when the surgery will be? I can't quite see it. If things don't work out for Davis Drewiske as a fill-in NHL Defenseman... ...he can always be a regular cast member on Mad Men. The best part of finally seeing our Los Angeles Kings on Fox Sports West was not being able to hear Bob Miller and Jim Fox call a game for the first time in nearly 11 months... Nope, it was Bob Miller humblebragging his new bling for all the world to see. Well, at least the part of the world that gets this particular regional sports network. My name is Daniel Plainview. And this is my son and partner, H.W. I love that we live in a world where Jim Fox's Twitter handle makes it on screen graphically. Worst. Episode of the Charlie Rose Show. Ever. Talk about living in the past... Anze Kopitar is still wearing his 2012 Playoffs branded underwear. Or Fox Sports West just used an old shot of Anze before last nights game. Avalanche fans... please keep your babies far away from the action on the ice... ...otherwise Kyle Clifford will eat them. Seriously... it's been over 3 years... does anyone know if Kyle Clifford has a soul?!? This guy is walking into the Pepsi Center just looking for a fight. Aww... nice try Gabe. But don't worry... it's still a cute Cup. Hey, Philadelphia Flyers fans... I know that the LA Kings haven't won yet either this season... but we'd like to give you an "A" for effort. I just wish there was some way to visually describe how I felt watching the defending Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings play a great period and half before completely running out of gas in the high altitude of Denver... No. Still no. (FYI, this is a full 2 minutes later than the one above.) Nope. Warmer. Way colder. Nailed it. FYI, in case you forgot... my TRH GAMEDAYS posts are now exclusive to LAKings.com. You can check out the one previewing the Kings-Avalanche game from last night (SPOILER ALERT: The Kings lost) over at LAKings.com.

Penner benched for Oilers game

EDMONTON, Canada -- The first casualty of the Kings slow start turned out to be left wing Dustin Penner, a healthy scratch for Thursday nights game against the Oilers. Kyle Clifford will be taking Penners spot on the second line with Jeff Carter and center Mike Richards, at least at the start. Penner thought this move might be serving as a wakeup call for the Stanley Cup champion...

Kings' Mitchell puts availability on hold

EDMONTON, Canada -- Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, the minister of bluntness, was at it again on this textbook winter day in Alberta. With the Kings trying to avoid a 0-3 start, attention turned to the future availability of veteran defenseman Willie Mitchell. Mitchell had knee surgery during the lockout and is moving along. Not fast enough, apparently. "You know what, he'...

Kings activate Kopitar, send Stewart to minors

The Los Angeles Kings have activated center Anze Kopitar from the non-roster list after their longtime leading scorer missed the season opener with a knee injury. The defending Stanley Cup champions also assigned newly acquired forward Anthony Stewart to their AHL affiliate in Manchester on Tuesday. Kopitar injured his knee shortly before the lockout ended in a collision while...

Kopitar ready to return?

Multiple outlets are suggesting Anze Kopitar could return from his knee injury as soon as tonight when the Los Angeles Kings visit Colorado. If that proves to be the case, the prolific forward will have missed just one game as a result of the ailment. Even if he can't quite go on Tuesday, this can be taken as a great sign that's he's very close to making his season debut...

Matthew Barry: P.K. Subban to the Kings?

Mitchell is getting older - Scuderi is in the final year of his contract - Subban and Doughty for the next 5-6 years would be just brutal to the opponents of the Western Conference. If the Habs ARE willing to deal P.K., a Western Conference team would make sense. Is P.K. a Dean Lombardi "right fit?" What would it cost Lombardi? They don't need Bernier and its...

Kings-Oilers Preview

The Los Angeles Kings have yet to find their offense in getting off to a slow start after hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. Having top center Anze Kopitar getting healthier by the day could help them break out of that funk sooner than later. Kopitar and the low-scoring Kings look to avoid losing their first three games for the first time since the...

Champs get point, but still winless

Sam Gagner scored a power-play goal 3:01 into overtime and the Edmonton Oilers rallied past the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 on Thursday night, leaving the defending Stanley Cup champions winless in three games this season. Nail Yakupov tied it for the Oilers with 4.7 seconds left in the third period. His exuberant celebration took him to center ice, where he dropped to his knees and slid...

Kings concede three late goals, lose to Avs

DENVER (AP) -- Gabriel Landeskog and David Jones scored 1:35 apart in the final period to help Colorado rally for a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night in the Avalanche's home opener. P.A. Parenteau also added his first goal in an Avalanche sweater midway through the third period to help the team bounce back from a season opening loss in Minnesota. Kyle Clifford...

Third-period explosion lifts Avalanche over Kings

DENVER -- The Los Angeles Kings were dominant on the road in last year's playoffs. Two games into a new season, the defending Stanley Cup champions can't win anywhere. Gabriel Landeskog and David Jones scored 1:35 apart to start the third period, Semyon Varlamov made 28 saves and the Colorado Avalanche beat Los Angeles 3-1 Tuesday night at Pepsi Center. P.A. Parenteau...

Oilers 2, Kings 1

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Edmonton Oilers, trying to wash away the bitter taste of a home-opening embarrassment, had their hands full with a Los Angeles Kings team desperate for their first win of the season. But they showed what all the buzz was about Thursday with a wild, 2-1 victory at Rexall Place. The Kings thought they had it won in regulation, but Edmonton rookie Nail Yakupov...
