Center Sidney Crosby (#87) of the Pittsburgh Penguins

Magic Alright

There was magic in the Pittsburgh offense versus LA Saturday afternoon, but two things made it fail: not enough of it, and a goalie in Jonathan Quick who was better than the shooters the Penguins offered. Wi...
Bo Horvat (VAN - 53) sports a poppy for Remembrance Day.

No Big Surprise

What’s up with LA? Not the people, nor the city—the hockey team. Coming into Tuesday, they’ve won two of the last three and gained a point in the other. They lost two before that, but back to mid-November, they...

Kings Down Hawks

The LA Kings were going to exit Wednesday out of the playoffs no matter what they managed to do against the Chicago Blackhawks. They entered the night at 52 points, three behind Calgary for the West’s last wild...

Goalie Jonathan Quick (#32) of the Los Angeles Kings makes a save with his glove

Kings All Fugued Up

Every year about this time, the Kings experience what psychiatrists would call a “fugue,” which is a time when someone suffers from loss of memory, begins a new life, and when she or he recovers, doesn’t rememb...
