EL SEGUNDO -- Justin Williams stood among adults Friday afternoon, surrounded by a semi-circle of reporters, but he still sought a way to offer a PG-rated assessment of the Kings’ recent goal-scoring efforts. ``Obviously last ni...

Kings discuss ways to improve stalled offense

There's certainly potential for this Los Angeles Kings team to put up impressive numbers on offense. Quick in transition and tinged with speed, the veteran forwards and mobile defensemen boast superior depth and skating ability over that of many National Hockey League teams. The off-season acquisition of Mike Richards was made with the Kings' depth at center in mind. With...

Eklund: Habs Looking at Penner(e4). Flames out front of all others for Turris

The Canadiens are talking to the La Kings regarding Dustin Penner (e4). I am surprised at this, and would be pretty shocked were anything to come of this rumor, HOWEVER there are two sources, one with the Kings, one with Habs, who confirm at least it is worth noting and I will continue to track this... Also, the Flames are definitely the leading team right now...

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&...

you're hard to resist

Having never been to Los Angeles, I really can't tell you how the Kings fit into their collective psyche. Suffice it to say, said collective psyche is probably getting Mike Richards Disease from a case of prolonged exposure. Also: people are dicks. But we brought justice to the west coast. We rode into battle. It wasn't pretty at all. It was actually kind of ugly. But...

TRH Recap 13: It'z No Good

I just wish there was some way to visually represent the frustration on the faces of the players for the Los Angeles Kings right now. PENGUINS 3, KINGS 2 (SO) Click Here to Read the Rest of The Royal Half Recap!!! Well... on the bright side, at least the Kings scored two 5 on 5 goals! The difference must have been Kevin Westgarth and his 4 shifts for a total of 2 min...

Early Lady Byng Leader

It is about a month into the season and I am still picking the early leaders for the various awards.  Today I am looking at the Lady Byng Trophy that combines sportsmanship and playing ability.  I think the early leader is Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings.  He currently has 14 points in 12 games and is yet to record a penalty minute. Kopitar has established himself as a...

Penguins' Picard ready to make debut in L.A. tonight

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Alexandre Picard doesn't know much about the Los Angeles Kings. "I think the last time I played against them was with Philly when I first started in the NHL," he said Friday.

Penguins-Kings Preview

The offensively challenged Los Angeles Kings know they need to pick up the pace if they want to remain competitive. While the Pittsburgh Penguins haven't had much difficulty scoring this season, an inability to stop opponents has proved costly in their last two games. The Kings, losers of three straight, host a Penguins team that's looking to avoid a third consecutive defeat...

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Just looking at the Pittsburgh Penguins' fast start, you might never know they have been without captain Sidney Crosby all season. Chris Kunitz scored the tying goal with 2:57 left in regulation and netted the deciding tally in the fourth round of a shootout to lead the Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. Crosby, sidelined...

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...
