Buffalo (30-12-6) at Los Angeles (27-19-3) The Sabres and Kings met for the only time this season. Last time they met, Ryan Miller shutout Los Angeles in a 5-0 win. The Sabres almost made quite a comeback in their last game against Anaheim. Buffalo quickly fell behind 4-0 in the first period with Patrick Lalime in net. The Sabres came out in the second, narrowing the...
Over the Next 30 days I will be Previewing each of the National Hockey League Clubs heading into the 2011-12 season starting from the Anaheim Ducks. Day 13 of the series belongs to the official AarifDeenReport Los Angeles Kings Preview. Please resort to myhockeybuzz page for previews of teams falling before this team. [b]Follow me on Twitter @AarifDeenReport please....
Jonathan Bernier was supposed to be the goalie of the future for the Los Angeles Kings, but apparently Jonathan Quick didn’t get the memo. Quick has proven that he is an above average NHL starting goaltender, and because of that Bernier will probably not get his shot at earning the Kings starting job unless Quick gets injured. So what does a team do with two goalie...

Quick for Vezina?

[b]Follow me on twitter: @gunnerstaal[/b] [img]http://l.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/VvvBMjjMTDpS1BaQnToPRw--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7cT04NTt3PTYzMA--/http://media.zenfs.com/en/blogs/sptusnhlexperts/142355004.jpg[/img] For much of the season the race for the Vezina trophy was a one man contest. Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers was not only being mentioned for th...
I know most people are picking the Kings to upset Vancouver in the first round. It's a popular pick based off of the fact that Jonathan Quick is a Vezina candidate and single-handedly drove the Kings to the playoffs. But is it realistic? Vancouver IS the President's Trophy winners (two years in a row mind), earning it in the last game of the season with a convincing win in...

The LA Kings: A Dynasty

Posted Friday | Comments 15
Which is the greatest dynasty team in the history of the NHL? Is it the Edmonton Oilers of the late 80's? The Canadiens of, well, pick a decade other than the one we're in, or was it the Islanders of the early 80's? Another team perhaps? I guess my point is that in the history of the NHL, there have been teams which have succeed for prolonged periods of time. And I'm no...
Anze Kopitar is hardly the skater a goaltender wants to see bearing down on him in overtime with yards of unimpeded ice. Kopitar's slick hands, put on display during the St. Louis series, waited out Martin Brodeur and snagged Los Angeles a 2-1 victory in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals Wednesday evening, giving the Kings home-ice advantage in the process. In a physical...
[IMG]http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u182/legacy1436/mad-hockey-goalie-thumb1801053.jpg[/IMG] Matthew Barry has made an excellent point in his blog on Bernier to Toronto for Frattin and a 3rd rounder (http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Matthew-Barry/Frattin-and-a-3rd-for-Bernier/125/45651) Barry's quote - [i]Yeah, Bernier's been moaning like a kid whose parents won't t...
1/23/13 Game Recap: Kings 1 @ Avalanche 3 Early in this one, the Kings looked to regain their Stanley Cup form over the young and speedy Avalanche. However, the Avalanche were able to stick close to the defending champs, finding a way similar to the Kings' playoff run to steal the victory. A relentless fore-check led to several chances on Colorado netminder Semyo...
Kings Recap: 1/26 @ Phoenix As I write this, the Kings are closing in on their first victory this season as defending champs...could not think of a better place than Phoenix, who are still ticked off at Dustin Brown and the Kings for ousting them in the Conference Finals. Thursday night was just a bad night. The Kings looked awful on the power play, not generating ...
After a rather slow start to this short season, the Kings have started to show some signs of the team it was during the playoff run. In a battle of Western Conference heavyweights on Monday evening at Staples, the Kings found themselves down in a 2-0 hole late in the middle frame. Nevertheless, they stuck with the program, continued to push hard and found a way to win....
[b]President's Day Blog![/b] Enjoy the day off...well for those who are teacher's like me got the day off! I am sure others did too...hopefully. Some comments on the Kings game at the United Center on Sunday... [u][i]Kings 2 @ Chicago Blackhawks 3[/i][/u] I was expecting a team like the Kings, who are defending champions, or so technically speaking they are,...
[b]March 10[/b] Defending Staples appeared to hit a road bump on Thursday, as the Dallas Stars used a three-goal third period to defeat the defending champion Kings 5-2. Dallas also got two goals from ageless wonder, Jaromir Jagr, who beat Quick on an early power play and then added an insurance goal at the 9:40 mark of the third. Perhaps the Kings were a little ...
[b]The Ides of March[/b] [b][i]Leafs Lose Again, et tu LA?[/i][/b] I apologize for not working on this last night after the game, but it has almost become unbearable to stay up later in the evening, having to watch both the Leafs and defending champion Kings find ways to lose. Although I am not as much concerned about the Kings, however I am beginning to worry abo...
[i][b]Late Night Update: Kings 4, Phoenix Coyotes 0[/b][/i] What a great save by former King Jason LaBarbera on a three-on-one chance on Justin Williams... Jonathan Quick got the start and seemed to have returned to championship form. We got to see some "vintage Quick" tonight, as the Kings were in total control from beginning to finish. Now, a bit more difficult...
[b]March 25[/b] [b][i]A Tale of Two Teams, and Two Captains[/i][/b] Before I depart my southwestern Chicago suburb home for bright and sunny Orlando, Florida, I will post one more blog before I head out for Spring Break away from my fun-loving 8th graders! [i][b]Kings 5 @ Chicago Blackhawks 4[/b][/i] Tonight, the Kings had no choice but to come out hitting hard...
[b]Playoff Time [i]Kings vs. Blues[/b][/i] [i]Game One...[/i] Los Angeles was lucky to be alive and playing into overtime; thanks in large part to the outstanding play of Jonathan Quick, who gave the Kings a chance to steal the opening game from a St. Louis team who could not have played any better. Call it a chip on their shoulder, or old fashioned revenge, th...
I really do not want to watch baseball. The Toronto Blue Jays are a complete disaster, trading for a bunch of has-beens and old men and those who have a history of injuries and being undependable. Plus, a dead ass manager who has already failed miserably with the same organization cannot help matters either. My real baseball team I have followed all my life as my first...
[b]Sharks - Kings Preview[/b] Well, Sharks' Fans got their wish. Thank you Detroit. Now, the Sharks don't have to play the Blackhawks in the Second Round. That's the Good News. The Bad News, is that they will have to play the Los Angeles Kings instead. Out of the frying pan, and into the proverbial fire as it were. This is going to be a tough series for the ...
May 19 The Battle of California. Round Two. Defending champion Los Angeles Kings vs. perennial power house San Jose Sharks. Three games into this epic series, none of the above are the main headlines. Instead, it is the officials who are throwing a money wrench into what should be a great series between two strong teams who have hated each other since the early...
[b]June 2[/b] Alright, I think I get it now. It's not okay for Dustin Penner to grab Michal Handzus and throw him out of a scrum to protect his goaltender Jonathan Quick. It's also not okay for Dustin Penner to finish his check on a speedy Blackhawk and keep him out of the play. But it's okay for Dave Bolland to all of a sudden take a run at Mike Richards behin...
This is my first blog, so I figured to start off with a hotly contested subject as the new season starts. Just who is the best goaltender in the NHL. By all accounts I read through this summer, that distinction belongs to either Quick or Lundqvist. Lundqvist has played 3 more seasons than Quick, and since I am a Rangers fan I decided to reduce Henrik's numbers to only 5...

Back For More!

Posted Saturday | Comments 1
[b]October 5[/b] Welcome back Maple Leaf and King followers... With my busy coaching and teaching schedule, it is going to be tough for me to express my thoughts on my beloved clubs after every game, so I will try and fill in at least once a week for a little "unbiased" recap. I use the term unbiased very loosely, obviously. After being noticeably outplayed in the...
[b]January 12[/b] Jimmy Howard just proved why he deserves to be a member of the United States Olympic team. Despite a tough year for him, mainly due to inconsistencies of play of the guys in front of him and injuries to several Red Wings players, Howard still remains an elite goaltender in the NHL and nearly single handedly defeated Chicago in the second round of t...
