Blackhawks-Kings Preview

The Western Conference finalists from a season ago are returning from the All-Star break looking up at more teams in the standings than some might have expected. While the Chicago Blackhawks could quickly improve on their third-place position in the Central Division, the Los Angeles Kings have dug themselves a larger hole in the Pacific. The teams meet Wednesday night in Los Angeles...

Capitals among East contenders; West race too tight to call

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Alex Ovechkin's familiar gap-toothed grin has returned with the Washington Capitals in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff hunt. Hardly anyone's smiling in the West, where the standings are far more convoluted heading into the post-All-Star break of the NHL schedule, which opens with 11 games Tuesday. ''It's hard,'' St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk...

Part Two: What if Europe’s World Cup Roster was Chosen Today?

Michael Grabner (AUS) – Anze Kopitar (SLO) – Thomas Vanek (AUS) Analysis: This line, featuring three players from two non-traditional hockey markets, could prove to be one of the most talented. Both Vanek and Grabner have played together before in international events, with the 2014 Olympics being the most recent example. The pair are longtime staples of the Austrian team...

Kings lose seventh shootout of the season in loss to Ducks

Tie games have become a nightmare in Los Angeles. Two wins and 10 losses in overtime. Even worse, one win and seven losses in shootouts. Maybe it's too tough to play 82 games like they're all Game 7.  On a night where emotion was nearly enough to carry the Kings to a big, Pacific Division win over their Freeway Faceoff rivals from Anaheim, they fell short in the shootout. Somehow...

Report: Kings shopping Mike Richards

There’s a report coming out that the Los Angeles Kings, in an attempt to gauge interest in their center Mike Richards, contacted the Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs to discuss a trade.

LA Kings Twitter makes suicide joke

Typically, the Los Angeles Kings have been one of the NHL’s most unique social media members, with a Twitter feed that is one of the more entertaining in all of pro sports. Need I remind you of their bromance with the Columbus Blue Jackets Twitter feed? Even the best can slip up sometimes, as the Kings did on Monday night: Both tweets were deleted by the morning, but everyone...

Devils-Kings Preview

The Los Angeles Kings regained their characteristic defensive dominance in avoiding a fourth straight loss in their last game. A matchup with the offensively challenged New Jersey Devils - who will be missing their leading scorer - should give them a good chance to shut down a second straight opponent. The Kings continue a seven-game homestand when they look to avoid a third straight...

Video: Dustin Byfuglien destroys two Kings in the opening minute

Dustin Byfuglien is a frightening man. In the opening minute of action between the Kings and Jets, Byfuglien knocked Drew Doughty off the puck before hoisting Anze Kopitar off of the ice with his stick and into the boards. Byfuglien earned a two-minute penalty for hooking on the Kopitar hit. Other angles revealed the penalty was deserved, but it also could have been two minutes...

Kings overcome early 3-goal deficit in win over Blues

The St. Louis Blues picked up right where they left off Tuesday night, netting three goals in the first period. It brought their total to eight goals in a span of 44 minutes over three days, two cities and two periods against the Los Angeles Kings.  But the funny thing is, the Kings didn't collapse this time.  "A comeback is a mild miracle," Kings' coach Darryl Sutter joked.

Los Angeles Kings debut Stadium Series jersey

            On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Kings formally revealed their 2015 Stadium Series jerseys. And the results are…unfortunate. Have a look for yourself: I get it. They’re the reigning champs, so they can kind of do whatever they want and will pummel you on the ice if you question them, but holy awfulness, Batman. The two-toned...

Who is the Best: Crosby, Kopitar, Toews or Bergeron? by @ChicksDigHockey

Penguins' fans have languished in frustration since winning the Cup in 2009. While the team has managed to be successful in the regular season, they have failed to return to the dance: the Stanley Cup Finals. Accordingly, the Penguins' collapse against the New York Rangers in last spring's playoffs marked the end of the organization’s patience with not contending for the cup....

Kings-Hurricanes Preview

The Los Angeles Kings were among the best road teams in the NHL last season, but so far that's not carried over into 2014-15. The schedule hasn't done them any favors, either. A road win has eluded the Kings thus far but getting Anze Kopitar back and facing the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday gives them an excellent opportunity for one. Los Angeles (6-3-2) went 23-14-4 in away games...
