The Kings piled on another win to the Mother Of All Homestands with a 2-0 triumph over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday in a game that could have featured a wider margin of victory if not for some fine goaltending by Jhonas Enroth and a few missed nets in the first...

Following today’s morning skate, Jake Muzzin politely requested to step into the hallway of the team’s facility at Toyota Sports Center before answering questions about his return to the lineup and tonight’s game against the Buffalo Sabres.

The U.S. fell six spots to No. 23 in the monthly FIFA world rankings released Thursday, the team's lowest ranking in more than a year.
USC's Javorius Allen won't be the only high-performance running back on the field when the No. 20 Trojans play No. 19 Utah on Saturday night at Salt Lake City.
Kobe Bryant will sit out the Lakers' final two exhibition games for rest reasons, a team spokesman said Wednesday.
With the Kings facing personnel decisions during the time it took Jake Muzzin’s upper-body injury to heal and in the aftermath of Slava Voynov’s indefinite suspension, the importance of Brayden McNabb’s acquisition at last season’s trading deadline has been reinforced. Averaging 17:21 of ice time through the first six games of the season, McNabb opened the year by playing alongside Drew Doughty, and if today’s defensive pairings will continue tomorrow, he’ll skate at even strength alongside a much different type of defenseman in Matt Greene, who is much more of a stay-at-home...
On the day after the NHL suspended Kings defenseman Slava Voynov after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, the incoming commissioner of Major League Baseball said his league hopes to have a policy in place to cover such incidents next year.
On what aspects of Brayden McNabb’s game provide him comfort when aligning McNabb alongside two different defensemen in Matt Greene and Drew Doughty: Well, we moved him with Greene because Jake is more comfortable with Drew than Brayden would be. And as you go deeper into the season, it’s not training camp when you’re just rolling four lines, especially when you’re playing higher powered teams. Sometimes you don’t want to expose players. You want to take advantage of what they have. It’s not so much ‘who he’s more comfortable with’ now. Those are our six defensemen, and we...
Jake Muzzin has been cleared to return to the Los Angeles Kings and should be expected to be in the lineup for Thursday’s home game against the Buffalo Sabres. “I’m good to go. We got cleared, and I’m excited for tomorrow night,” Muzzin said. The prognosis on his upper-body injury was that he would need three weeks to recover. Tomorrow’s game comes three weeks to the day that he suffered the injury during a 2-1 shootout win over the Avalanche in Colorado Springs. Because of Slava Voynov’s indefinite suspension, the Kings will once again ice their 18 available healthy skaters....
Apparently a team can never have too many ex-general managers around, or at least the Dodgers appear ready to test the theory.
Good morning from the Toyota Sports Center, where the Kings are practicing in advance of Thursday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres. Per the color coded jerseys at today’s practice, it is possible that we could see some adjusted lines during tomorrow’s game. More on those lines below. First, Slava Voynov’s lawyer, Craig Renetzky, spoke with Ken Campbell of The Hockey News and said “it’s clear to me there was no crime here,” per a report this morning. Via THN: Craig Renetzky, a criminal lawyer who is representing Voynov in the matter, said the language barrier, both on the part...
Let it end, this autumn of our discontent, made inglorious by the Giants' postseason run. No más, no más. Enough already.
From the outset, when Commissioner Gary Bettman called Kings owner Philip Anschutz early Monday to say he had suspended Slava Voynov because of the defenseman's alleged involvement in a domestic violence incident, it was clear the league was taking the matter seriously.

All I can say after spending a day in Texas portraying USC Athletic Director Pat Haden is: "Fight on! We [retroactively] did it!"
