Kings Honored at White House

 

It was a big day for Los Angeles sports teams as the Stanley Cup Kings and MLS Champions Galaxy were honored today at 1:45 Eastern at the White House. 

The Kings were positioned to the President's right and the Galaxy on the left as Obama gave a quick recap of both teams championship runs last season. It's hard to tell how closely Obama follows hockey as he flipped through notes and read quotes by Jarrett Stoll and Captain Dustin Brown regarding their playoff run.

The President is an avid Chicago sports fan making today especially sweet for the Kings after last night's 5-4 victory over the Blackhawks. Obama mentioned that the players gave h...

Blackhawks Down: Chicago drops second straight to visiting Los Angeles Kings

 

Dustin Brown scored his twelfth goal of the season with under two minutes remaining to hand the Chicago Blackhawks (24-4-3) their fourth regulation loss of the season in a wild affair that saw the Blackhawks surrender three one-goal leads.

The victory put Los Angeles (18-12-2) ahead of the idle St. Louis Blues for sixth place in the crowded Western Conference race, and moved them within striking distance of division-leading Anaheim. The Kings currently sit ten points back of a suddenly struggling Ducks team with sixteen to play. With two of those remaining games coming against Anaheim, it’s not inconceivable to think that last year’s Stanley Cup Champio...

The sharp turn around puts the Kings in second place in their division and third in the West. The Pacific rival Coyotes are fourth in the division and ninth in the West.

The two teams met in the West Conference finals last May and despite playing only one game this season are familiar with one another. Fast physical games are common place and tonight’s game will provide intensity with the Kings trying to keep their moment...

Kings Sweep Flames, 3-1

The teams took the ice tonight after playing Saturday night where the Kings erupted for a 6-2 win. The Kings 3-1 victory tonight puts them in third place in the Western Conference a position, which didn't seem possible a couple of weeks ago. 

The Flames changed things up by starting Joey MacDonald in the net. MacDonald played well making 19 saves on 21 shots.

Kings: Week In Review

 

The Kings collected 6 points before losing to the Canuck's last night in Vancouver, 5-2. Los Angeles' winning streak and Jeff Carter's goal streak came to an end after five games.

It was a week of vengenace as the Kings defeated Colorado, Anaheim and Detroit - all teams they lost to in their first go round. The Kings fell to Vancouver a team they beat 3-2 in January. Today the Kings sit in last place in the Pacific Division and 11th in the Western Conference. After Wednesday's 2-1 victory over Detroit the Kings moved to second in the Pacific and fifth in the West. With a condensed and strictly-Western laden schedule the standings will remain preca...

Kings Look for Sixth Straight In Vancouver

 

Preview: The Kings (10-6-2; 22 points) travel to Vancouver to play the slumping Canucks (10-5-4; 24 points) tonight at 7. A week ago Los Angeles was last in the Pacific Division but after five consecutive wins they sit in second just behind the Anaheim Ducks. The Canucks stand on top of the Northwest Division but have gone on a lull dropping two straight and collecting only two wins in their last seven games.

With the teams heading in different directions look for a fast and open first period. The Kings have had more success in the beginning of games creating pressure leading to scoring opportunities. Cory Schneider is expected to start in the net for the Canucks...

Capturing two wins in their back-to-back games in Canada the Kings return to the Staples Center where they will play 13 of their next 16 games. A slow start to the season landed the Kings in the basement of the Pacific division one point behind Dallas. Despite their positioning Los Angeles has played more consistently and is poised to make a run. The Avalanche beat the Predators and Blues in their last two games and have Gabriel Landeskog returning. Landeskog scored the game-winning goal in the third period when the Kings lost to the Avalanche, 3-1 in Colorado.
