HAVE THE LA KINGS WON THE STANLEY CUP?
Sorry, guys... can't talk right now. I have to go see about a hockey team.
Yup, I'm flying out early Saturday morning and landing in Newark at 4:30pm. If you don't already follow me on Twitter.... now would be a really, really, really, really good time to start. Let me know if you want me to bring you back anything from New Jersey... besides a communicable disease, of course.

When Peter DeBoer had finished tossing verbal bouquets toward his captain, Zach Parise, the New Jersey Devils coach had an odd request for the assembled media at the Prudential Center.
"I think you guys just [ticked] him off," DeBoer said. "Keep doing it."

Following his meltdown outside the Staples Center during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Charlie Sheen has now been offered a few perks by the Devils for Game 5.
Ilya Kovalchuk didn't leave the Thrashers on the greatest terms back in February of 2010. It was a forgone conclusion that he was gone, and it frustrated fans of the Thrashers because of his platitudes all season long. He talked the talk of wanting to stay here, and then poof. Off to New Jersey. Lots of fans, myself included, were unhappy, especially when word leaked out...
NEWARK, N.J. -- The second the Los Angeles Kings took a 3-0 series lead over the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup Final, fans and journalists all across the country myself included left the Devils for dead, calling the series as good as done.
Don't we all look silly now?

In retrospect the NHL probably should have stuck with its’ old Stanley Cup Final campaign, “history will be made,” because the New Jersey Devils are on the verge of doing just that.After going down 3-0 in the series to the Los Angeles Kings, the Devils have made a triumphant comeback to cut the series lead to just one game and put the brakes on what seemed to be an all but...
There were a lot of ‘firsts’ that came from tonight’s 2-1 Game 5 win for the New Jersey Devils. Most importantly, for the first time this postseason the Kings looked outside of their element and have watched the Devils inch back into the series.For the first time since 1945, a team trailing 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Final has forced a Game 6. How did the Devils do it tonight...
NEWARK, N.J. -- Bryce Salvador scored on a deflection off a defenseman and the New Jersey Devils derailed Los Angeles' Stanley Cup coronation for a second time, beating the Kings 2-1 in Game 5 of the finals Saturday night. Zach Parise ended a five-game goal drought on a rare mistake by goalie Jonathan Quick, and Martin Brodeur stopped 25 shots to help the Devils end the Kings...
The New Jersey Devils defeated the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 tonight to force a Game 6 in LA Monday night.
I believe all the pressure is now on the Kings to win Monday (their game 7) in order to avoid making another cross-country trip and face even more pressure of a real Game 7 on Wednesday.
Watch the game-winning goal from Bryce Salvador midway through the 2nd period.

Here is New Jersey Devils and former Fighting Sioux All-American forward Zach Parise's goal in game five against the Los Angeles Kings. That was the first goal of the Stanley Cup Finals for Parise who had been held scoreless in five games for Parise how had been (0g-0a-0pts) and a minus 4 in the last five games going back to...
NEWARK, N.J. -- Bryce Salvador claims he's not doing anything differently in the playoffs, but after going without a single goal during the regular season, he's turned into a legitimate offensive force for the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup playoffs. "After going through 82 games without a goal, I'll take any goal I can get," said Salvador, who broke...
NEWARK, N.J. -- Bryce Salvador scored a fluke goal midway through the second period, snapping a 1-1 tie and giving the New Jersey Devils a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final Saturday night, drawing the Devils to within 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.
