As top moments go, Jerry Neuheisel's pass to lift UCLA over Texas is a doozy

For pure drama, the greatest moment in Los Angeles sports this season was created by Alec Martinez, twice, with one goal that put the Kings into the Stanley Cup Final and another that won the Cup in double overtime.

December 20 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the team’s performance: I think we responded the very same as last game, the Hanzal goal this game, and the Tarasenko goal last game. It’s the very same where you’ve got to respond to that during the game. On the penalty kill not allowing any shots on its final kill: Well, they’re going to get shots. I think the key to your penalty killing is your goaltender’s got to make a big save somewhere, and you’ve got to get in shooting lanes and you’ve got to try and block shots, and when you get away from that, regardless of […]

Late fall marked by offensive spike

We all know that the National Hockey League is a Three-Two League, and recently, the Los Angeles Kings have done a good job holding up the “three” part of it. They’ve averaged 3.05 goals per game over their last 19 games and will take a team shooting percentage a full point better than last year’s into tomorrow afternoon’s game against the Arizona Coyotes. From an offensive standpoint, they’ve been rolling lately. But the Kings are also allowing a few more goals here and there than year’s Jennings Trophy-pace. Opponents have averaged 2.77 goals per game over their last 13 games,...

December 19 practice quotes: Darryl Sutter

On Thursday’s win over St. Louis: Really, we played the way we wanted to play. We wanted to be a physical team, and the first two penalties – Cliffy’s was a penalty. I didn’t like [unintelligible / door slam] Robyn, and Drew takes a slashing penalty. I obviously don’t want three in the first period, and they scored on two of ‘em, but I think our power play goal at the end of the first was the most important goal in the period because I thought we had a really good period. Other than that, it’s not always based on […]

The View from St. Louis

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH Jeremy P. Rutherford: Blues slip up in Kings rematch “The Blues have handed their last three opponents a combined 18 power plays, five of which have been converted, including LA’s game-winner Thursday.” Jeremy P. Rutherford: Blues have big shoes to fill with Schwartz out “Perhaps more of a concern to the Blues right now, and it was prior to the Schwartz injury, is finding a suitable fit on right wing alongside Stastny.” SB Nation – ST. LOUIS GAME TIME J-Mill: Blues, Brodeur Blow 3-0 Lead to Kings, Drop 11th Straight at Staples Center 6-4 in Embarrassing...
