The Washington Capitals tonight headed to Well Fargo Center for the first of two road meetings with their fierce Metropolitan Division rivals the Philadelphia Flyers, finishing up a two-game road trip. Both teams were coming off shutout losses in their last games played so each of the teams desperately needed to get back into the win column. On the aid of three unanswered goals in the 2nd perio...

Last spring the Washington Capitals and the New York Rangers played seven games in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, in which the Rangers won four of and all of the games were decided by one goal. This would not be the case tonight due to messy, misguided play as the score was one-sided with the Rangers winning 5-2 over the Caps ending the Caps undefeated road record this season. Wa...

After a win streak snapping loss on Wednesday night to the Pittsburgh Penguins at Verizon Center the Washington Capitals faced off against another Metropolitan foe whom they also have bad blood with, the Columbus Blue Jackets. Last season there were many goals scored and many penalty minutes given which resulted in Washington winning the season series 3-1-1. Tonight with the help of two newly a...

It's fairly evident that the Kings made improvements through their off-season moves this summer. I will go further and qualify this with “on paper”, so as to not rile up anyone adamant that the Kings will still be worse than their favorite team next season. That said, the off-season additions have excited Kings fans and have us asking, “Is it October?” (more…)

First off, sorry for the prolonged absence. I was on a long vacation and definitely suffered from blogger withdrawal. Anyone who showed a remote interest in hockey I would prattle on to forever, so it's good to be back. There's a lot going on for the Kings right now, so I'd like to just touch on the few things that will be impacting the Kings… severely. (more…)

The Kings are in a state of disrepair to a certain degree. It's not awful, although one might be inclined to feel that way with their recent set of losses. Yet, there is hope that the addition of 1 or 2 key pieces can change the Kings' fortunes, and if you're 1 or 2 pieces away from success, you're not in a terrible place. Whether or not those 1 or 2 pieces will actually fix anything is s...

The Detroit Red Wings played a solid game on Saturday night, but it was ultimately not enough as the Los Angeles Kings defeated them 3-2 in overtime. Jonathan Ericsson opened up the scoring with 4:31 left in the first when he slapped home his second goal of the season. The Wings outplayed the Kings for much of the first period, and it looked like it could be a long night for the team in black...

This week in Los Angeles sports ranged from no defense in basketball to a great start in hockey to revved up chatter about an NFL football stadium in downtown LA. The city of LA keeps its fans occupied in more ways than one during the football season so let's check out what was on deck last week. The Lakers cruised into last week undefeated not having played their best ball or a complete game...

When you go to a hockey game, you hope and pray for a game like the Kings played tonight. Chippy play, 4 fights, and a 3-1 victory over a division rival. The energy at this game was palpable and the Kings did not disappoint in front of a packed Staples Center crowd. Even the atmosphere after the game in front of Staples Center was raucous. (more…)
