Watch the Throne: Kings Find Their Stride

The Los Angeles Kings may have started the 2015-2016 season with three consecutive losses, but they’ve been able to turn the ship around and have been blowing through a seven game winning streak on their way to the top of the Pacific Division.

Ducks off to Awful Start: Does Bruce Boudreau Have to Go?

We’ve spent a fair bit of time extolling the virtues of the Montreal Canadiens, what with their winning streak extending to nine games after Saturday’s victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. But one story that’s lost in the shuffle is that of the Anaheim Ducks, who are 1-5-1 over seven games and have been shut […]
