Puck Possession Is Paramount for Kings

By most measures, it’s been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month for the Los Angeles Kings. On October 6, veteran winger Marian Gaborik was placed on injured reserve, courtesy of a broken foot suffered while playing for Team Europe at the World Cup of Hockey in September.

Jonathan Quick tries to fight the Sharks, leaves game injured

Jonathan Quick has always had a bit of a temper, and it was on display right away to start the 2016-17 season. In the second of NBC’s Wednesday Rivalry Night games, the Sharks hosted the Kings, and tempers boiled over after Logan Couture tied things up in the first period. As the Sharks celebrated, Quick rushed out of his crease and tried to fight the first Sharks skater he could...

Anze Kopitar really, really loved playing for Team Europe

Team Europe was a mystery heading into the World Cup of Hockey. No one knew how the group of players representing eight different countries would perform at the tournament against more established groups and players who have skated with one another for years.
