Found March 06, 2013 on Rumors and Rants:
On Tuesday night during the Los Angeles Kings’ 6-4 comeback win over the St. Louis Blues, Kings forward Kyle Clifford and Blues enforcer Roman Polak went toe-to-toe in a classic hockey fight. As the above video shows, Polak and Clifford dropped the gloves just after a face-off (standard procedure) in the first period, and started immediately throwing bombs at each other. Clifford was clearly getting the better of the duel when he landed a sweet uppercut that laid Polak out for good. The Blues forward was on his back and had to be helped from the ice, while Clifford skated calmly to the penalty box. It’s fairly clear Clifford won this round, but we’d love to see these two duke it out again next time these two teams meet.

Blues Find A Different Way To Lose

Kings goalie Bernier to start against Predators

Matthew Barry: Deadline Deal: What Do The Kings Need?

Last season the Kings traded Jack Johnson for Jeff Carter. Weeks later, Carter was lifting the Stanley Cup over his head.

Ellerby hasn't been bad since being acquired. Will Mitchell and Greene...
