Are the Kings “screwed”? (And is it news?)

I told you all many months ago that the Kings would have to get rid of two of their $3MM+ contracts in order to get under the cap. I gave a short list of (pick two of) Justin Williams, Jarret Stoll, Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene. This was of course long before we all knew…

SWEET FANCY MOSES!

Kings win their sixth game in a row. Is that their longest streak of the season? Yes. It’s the longest Kings’ winning streak since they won 8 in a row last playoffs. Tyler Toffoli. TT. T2. Drew the penalty. Then made the Lewis goal happen. Trevor Lewis is in an awful lot of playoff highlights.…

2001 v DET, 2013 v STL — Kings come back from 0-2 to win in 6

For the second time in franchise history, the Kings came back from an 0-2 series deficit to win in six. For the second time in a calendar year, Dustin Penner scored a series-clinching goal that no Kings fan will forget. The Kings extend their consecutive playoff series winning streak to five. Jonathan Quick stole 99.9%…

Kings round 1, game 1: this year vs. last year

On April 11, 2012, the Kings beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 in Vancouver, in game one of the first round series which the Kings won 4-1. This was the roster: Brown, Carter, Clifford, Doughty, Greene, King, Kopitar, Lewis, Martinez, Mitchell, Nolan, Penner, Richards, Scuderi, Stoll, Voynov, Williams, Quick, Bernier (Loktionov, Westgarth, Richardson, Drewiske — scratched).…

Monday morning bullets: playoffs, points-blown, rookie stats

Points-Blown page is updated, and shows: Columbus is much worse off than the official standings (and pundits) would have you believe. St. Louis is better off than the official standings say. This has mostly to do with the fact that Columbus has only 12 games left, and St. Louis has 15. Everyone else who is…

Iginla approves Kings as trade destination…and? So?

I don’t even know where Jarome Iginla is supposed to fit on the Kings. Third line center? And for that, a rental, we’re supposed to give up — what — our best goalie this season? That would be stupid. A top prospect? Not Tyler Toffoli. A top-four defenseman? That’s not going to happen; we’re thin enough as it is.

Seriously, what is the offer “too good to refuse” for Lombardi? Hey, I’ve got it, and I’m serious, too:

Kings rest, meanwhile: Sunday’s results

THE GOOD: Canucks lose, Coyotes lose, Avs half-lose. THE BAD: Wings win, Hawks win, Flames win, Ducks win. THE POINTS-BLOWN: with the Canucks losing, the Kings pull within 2 points-blown of 3rd in the West; 6 points-blown separate 3rd from 14th; no one is safe. Okay, the Hawks are probably safe from the Jackets, but that’s about…
