Joel Quenneville, on whether he is excited for the team to start playing games again: I thought we had real good enthusiasm out there today, good pace. I think we want to play. I think practicing is OK, but games are what it’s all about. Quenneville, on the rivalry with Los Angeles: Very intense games, very exciting, unpredictable – games seem to be on the line from start to finish. Fast paced, maybe a little too much goal scoring for coaches but I think expect a fast game and expect not a lot of time and expect a hard game. […]
Kings forward Tyler Toffoli, who has missed six games because of mononucleosis, will be back in the lineup Wednesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks, according to Kings Coach Darryl Sutter.
Darryl Sutter spoke about the opportunities presenting themselves for the club’s left wings yesterday, saying that in Tanner Pearson’s absence, “our left wingers are Gaborik, King, Clifford, Andy, and you just go through your left wings, and that’s who you’re pushing up.” With extra opportunities inherited by the club’s left wings – Sutter said yesterday that King would inherit a good percentage of the allotted minutes – I asked the Kings’ coach what it would mean for Kyle Clifford, who has been valuable as a player who can skate up and down the left side.

Happy and reassuring playoff memories for the Kings can provide only so much comfort to a faltering hockey team in search of solutions.
It’s not exactly a secret that Mike Richards and Jeff Carter are friends; the two were born six weeks apart, were drafted in the first round of the 2005 NHL Draft, played OHL hockey against each other and made their professional debuts during the Philadelphia Phantoms’ 2005 championship run. They were even traded on the same day by the Flyers in 2011 – Richards to the Kings and Carter to the Blue Jackets – before they were reunited later that year when Carter was eventually shipped to Los Angeles. So, yeah, it’s safe to say there’s a linked history between […]
Reminding the media that the second half “started three weeks ago,” Jonathan Quick had only one thing on his mind on Tuesday: picking up two points against the Chicago Blackhawks in the club’s first game after the All-Star Break. “It’s just we have a good chance to get two points tomorrow,” he said. “You’re not really looking at it as post-break, pre-break. We’ve got a game tomorrow, we’re trying to get two points.” It was a point that he hammered home. The Kings, one point out of a playoff spot, need wins. They won their first seven games out of […]

Kings center Mike Richards cleared waivers on Tuesday, as expected, and he will report to the team's minor-league affiliate in Manchester, N.H. on Wednesday, Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi said.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Too soon to call it a rivalry? If so, the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings have created something just as intense and equally anticipated in the last two years. They’ll strap it on again Wednesday night at Staples Center in a matchup of the last two Western Conference semifinalists and four of the last five Stanley Cup champions. “The games are always intense,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said.
Mike Richards has cleared waivers, per reports. Based on conversations with General Manager Dean Lombardi yesterday, it is expected that Richards will be assigned to AHL-Manchester. Even though Philadelphia signed Richards to the 12-year, 69-million dollar contract, Los Angeles could be in line for some significant cap recapture penalties down the road because the contract was signed under the previous collective bargaining agreement. I hope to learn more from hockey operations in the coming days about theoretical hits the Kings’ salary cap could take, but Elliotte Friedman’s most recent...
