Kings' defensive group, now healthy, finding new ways of contributing

The Los Angeles Kings like the unconventional, but Tuesday night at the Staples Center, it was just plain weird. Two defensemen not named Drew Doughty, Alec Martinez or even Jake Muzzin, scored goals in the Kings' 5-2 victory over the Florida Panthers. The team that only dressed five defensemen last week was back to six Tuesday, but whether that's a full-strength group has...

The Los Angeles Kings are a strong defensive team. They led the NHL in goals against in 2013-14 and ranked 11th in penalty kill percentage. The Kings play a physically dominating style of play that can wear down teams. With a goalie as good as Jonathan Quick, who posted a .915 save percentage in 49 games last season, it is easy to overlook some of the team’s defenseman. I will...

I Feel Like I’ve Been Dumped

I think it’s safe to say it’s been a rough week for Rangers fans. When Alec Martinez buried the Stanley Cup clinching double overtime goal along with the Blueshirts Friday night, I was in a state of shock. That feeling pretty much continued through Saturday. Father’s Day day gave me a much needed distraction, but Monday is when the real depression started to set in. I couldn’t...

Stanley Cup Final closes with decent Game 5 numbers

I have spent a couple of years yelling into the vacuum that is the internet that an Los Angeles-New York Stanley Cup Final would be fine, but not the game breaker that the National Hockey League — at least in the eyes of many media pundits — needs. Now, the two teams playing didn’t exactly hurt my point, but it turned out to be true. However, there’s something to be said...
