Anze Kopitar and the Very Slow Start

Much has been made about the struggles of Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar. With just 10 points in 20 games, the 28-year-old Slovakian seems to be underperforming thus far. He did pick up two goals against the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday night, but it’s still hard to say that his stats are indicative of […]

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. Los Angeles may well pick up their eighth straight win tonight against […]

The Los Angeles Kings proved to be human after all in 2014-2015, coming up short and missing the post-season for the first time in six years. They posted a 40-27-15 record and managed 95 points, but they were still out of the running despite being just two points back on the playoff-bound Calgary Flames. The […]

Los Angeles Kings Terminate Mike Richards’ Contract

It would be an understatement to say that things haven’t been going well for Mike Richards in Los Angeles. First, in January of this year, we reported that the Kings put him on waivers. Now, this stemmed from trying to figure out what to do about his contract the season prior. They considered buying him […]
