LA Kings Drop Game One To Sharks

LA Kings Vs Sharks Tickets

SHARKS VS KINGS

In order to take back home ice advantage and bring the series back to STAPLES Center with the opportunity to take a commanding lead the Los Angeles Kings need to win one of the first two games of their opening Western Conference series in San Jose. The NHL playoffs are all about quick starts and momentum and as the road team statement games are important. Unfortunately for the Kings the opening game couldn’t have been more painful. Feeding off the energy of a capacity home crowd the San Jose Sharks stormed out to a 5-0 lead as they utterly dominated Jonathan Quick and the Kings.

The game was the polar opposite of last season’s second round series in which the Sharks struggled to solve Quick. Los Angeles ended up winning that series in seven, with home ice advantage being a big component. In a series that has been incredibly evenly matched, last night’s game was a surprise. The surprising loss sets up an extremely important second game of the series. In order to capture momentum the Kings will need a big performance and will need to flip the recent history between the two clubs. Over the past two seasons 17 of the last 18 matchups have been won by the home team.

The good thing for Los Angeles is they have a proven playoff performer in net with Quick, who will be motivated to make up for an unusual subpar performance. Quick gave up three first period goals for the first time in his NHL playoff career. Quick was pulled for rookie Martin Jones in the third and the Kings made a valiant attempt to storm back into the game with three goals, by Jake Muzzin, Slava Voynov and Trevor Lewis. The three tallies made the score 5-3 before Brent Burns put home an empty netter to set the final margin of 6-3.

In game two the Kings will look to recapture the momentum they had in the third period, while standing up to the Sharks physical style. San Jose played near perfect hockey in the first two periods, specifically keeping Drew Doughty off balance with physical play. San Jose also received solid goaltending from Antti Niemi, a major question mark heading into the series. Look for the veteran Kings to bounce back and eliminate some of the sloppy play that turned into odd man rushes and offense from the Sharks third and fourth lines.

Game two of the series is set for Sunday night at the SAP Center in San Jose, with the series making its way to STAPLES Center for games three and four on Tuesday and Thursday of next week. If the Kings can steal game two, behind a solid performance from Quick, they’ll be well positioned to get right back into the series.

Even with losses in four of their last five games the Los Angeles Kings held on and earned the 6th position in the NHL playoffs, finishing two points on top of the Minnesota Wild. The Kings 6th place finish has set up one of the most eagerly anticipated first round playoff matchups, a rematch of last year’s second round series between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks. Last season the Kings defeated the Sharks in seven spirited games, a series were the home team won each matchup. By virtue of an outstanding regular season the Sharks will have home ice advantage.

LA Kings Vs Sharks

KINGS VS SHARKS

Season Series: The Kings held the advantage in the season series between the two teams, three games to two. The Kings won one of the three games played in San Jose, a 1-0 shutout by Jonathan Quick on January 27th. The Sharks won the last game between the two teams, a 2-1 win on April 3. Other than a 4-1 Kings victory on December 19th all of the games were decided by a goal, indicative of just how closely matched the two teams are. The tight games in the season series mirror last year’s playoff matchup in which all seven games of the series were decided by just a lone goal.

San Jose Sharks- who to watch: The Sharks feature a deep roster of veterans that has been together through several playoff appearances. The aging combination of Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau are still strong performers along with young stars such as Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture and Brent Burns. Pavelski led the Sharks in scoring this season with 41 goals, while Marleau contributed 33. Right Wing Brent Burns, a former defenseman, and Couture give the Sharks tremendous size and speed up front with both scoring over 20 goals this season.

Kings Vs Sharks Staples Center

KINGS Vs SHARKS

Why the Kings will win: The Sharks had a better regular season, but the NHL playoffs are a whole new season and the Los Angeles Kings are built for the playoffs. Stanley Cups are won with good goaltending and the Kings have an advantage in net with Jonathan Quick. Quick has proven time and time again that he performs best in pressure situations and should have the advantage over Antii Niemi. Niemi had a strong overall regular season but has struggled in the month of April. The Sharks will need their veteran goaltender to be in strong form. Offensively the Kings have benefited from the acquisition of Marian Gaborik, a trade deadline pickup from the Columbus Blue Jackets. Garborik has scored 15 points in 18 games as a member of the Kings, giving their offense an additional component. The key for Los Angeles is earning a victory in San Jose to wrest home ice advantage away from the Sharks.

Prediction: Kings in six.

LA Kings Having Trouble Scoring

LA Kings Goal

LA Kings

With three games at STAPLES Center and Jonathan Quick back in the lineup last week was a big week for the Los Angeles Kings. With the Anaheim Ducks running out to a commanding lead in the division the Kings were looking to make up ground on the Ducks. The Kings performed well, outshooting their opponents by a wide margin, but unfortunately ran into red hot goaltending from both the Minnesota Wild and the Detroit Red Wings. Behind strong performances from Wild goaltender Darcy Kuemper and Red Wings netminder Jimmy Carson the Kings finished the week with a win, a loss and an overtime loss.

Kings Vs Red Wings

Kings Vs Wings

Week Recap: After defeating the Vancouver Canucks to kick off their home stand the Kings welcomed in the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night, minus goaltenders Josh Harding and Nicolas Backstrom, were starting third-stringer Darcy Kuemper in net. Kuemper put together a career-best performance, stopping 39 of the 40 shots he faced before Nino Niedereitter scored to put the game into overtime and then notched the game-winner in the shootout. The Kings returned to action on Thursday with an impressive victory over the Boston Bruins, perennial Eastern Conference power. The Kings jumped out to a 3-0 lead behind goals from Jeff Carter, Justin Williams and Alec Martinez, a lead that would eventually go to 4-1. Quick notched the victory, his second in three starts since his return. Unbeated in regulation in their last three games, Los Angeles welcomed in the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Los Angeles again dominated possession and shots on goal but lost at the hands of a hot goaltender. Jimmy Carson, who’ll join Quick on the USA hockey team, stopped 44 of the 45 shots he faced in earning the victory.

Up next for the Kings: Los Angeles has one game remaining in their home stand, an important matchup with the Vancouver Canucks. Tickets for the Kings Vs Canucks are still available. Los Angeles kicked off the five game STAPLES Center stand by defeating the Canucks 3-1 in Quick’s first start back after missing nearly two months with an injured groin. The Canucks are currently in fourth place in the Pacific, two points behind the Kings and vying for a playoff spot in the tough Western Conference. A win for the Kings is crucial; following the Canucks game Los Angeles heads off on the road for a five-game road swing. The Kings round out next week with difficult road trips to St. Louis and Detroit. The last time Los Angeles visited the Blues, on January 2, they suffered their biggest loss of the season, 5-0. The Blues loss was the final Kings game before the return of Quick.

Where they stand: Los Angeles is currently in 6th place in the Western Conference, two points behind in the Colorado Avalanche and two points up on the Vancouver Canucks. They are 14 points behind the Anaheim Ducks who are on yet another long winning streak, of six games. In two weeks the Kings will have an immediate opportunity to make up ground on Anaheim, with consecutive games versus the Ducks, an outdoor game at Dodger Stadium and a matchup at STAPLES Center.By:Chris Michaels.

LA Kings Make A Quick Turnaround

Quick Returns For LA Kings

Quick

In a season filled with injuries, most prominently a serious groin injury suffered by star goaltender Jonathan Quick, the Los Angeles Kings have stayed afloat in the face of adversity, behind elite backup goaltending and outstanding play from their deep defensive unit. After a 14-6-3 streak without Quick and a five game pointless streak the Los Angeles Kings were badly needed their star goaltender back. To kick off a five-game home stand Quick returned and the Kings regained their winning ways, defeating the Vancouver Canucks 3-1. Quick didn’t miss a beat, making 27 saves as the Kings rallied back with three goals in the 3rd period to earn the victory. With victory in hand the Kings have a golden opportunity to make a run back towards the top of the standings.

Goalie Jonathan Quick

Jonathan Quick

Up until the recent five-game losing streak the Kings had thrived behind the stellar play of backup goaltenders Ben Scrivens and Martin Jones. Scrivens, who the Kings acquired along with Matt Frattin in the Jonathon Bernier trade, has been as hot as any goaltender in the NHL this season. Scrivens, a late bloomer who didn’t make his NHL debut until the age of 26 last year with Toronto, has a 1.97 goals against average and a save percentage of .931. A month ago the Kings called up Martin Jones from the AHL Manchester Monarchs, and like Scrivens, Jones has shown incredible form. The rookie tied an NHL record by winning his first eight starts, including three shutouts. Jones has managed to top even Scrivens, with an absurdly low 1.41 goals against average and a .950 save percentage. The play of Scrivens and Jones has leveled out of late, probably too be expected. With two solid backups the Kings are suddenly wealthy in the goaltender department, as they welcomed back Quick.

LA Kings Vs Wild

Kings Vs Wild

In a stacked Western Conference the play of Jones and Scrivens may have saved the Kings season. Poor backup goaltending may have put Los Angeles in a hole they couldn’t dig out of, not to mention the other injuries the Kings have dealt with key cogs such as Jeff Carter, Jarrett Stoll, Matt Greene, Willie Mitchell and Kyle Clifford. With Quick soon to return the Kings are finally healthy and look primed to make a run toward Chicago and Anaheim at the top of the Western Conference standings. The next four games, all at STAPLES Center, are key. The next four at STAPLES Center brings in some tough competition, from both the Western and Eastern Conferences. With Saturday’s win versus Vancouver in the books the Kings host the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. Minnesota, led by Zach Parise and Ryan Suter is a gritty, defensive oriented club. The Wild will be a good warm up for Thursday night’s game versus the Boston Bruins. Boston, winner of the Stanley Cup two seasons ago leads the Atlantic Division with 56 points, the second best record in the Eastern Conference. Following the matchup with the Bruins the Kings host perennial power Detroit on Saturday, January 11. The Red Wings are in playoff contention as a new member of the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference. Led by Pavel Datysuk and Henrik Zetterberg Detroit is one of the most storied franchises in league history and, like Boston, one of the Original Six NHL franchises. Los Angeles then wraps up the home stand with another visit by the Vancouver Canucks. In an odd twist of scheduling the Canucks visit the Kings twice in a nine-day span.

If Los Angeles can effectively navigate their upcoming home stand they’ll be in good shape leading up to the Sochi Winter Olympics break. With Quick back in the lineup the Kings are primed for a race toward the top of the NHL standings. Armed with one of the top defensive units in the league and as good as any team in possession, Los Angeles has all the indicators of a team that can make another deep Stanley Cup playoff run.

LA Kings Playing Strong Behind Martin Jones

Los Angeles Kings

Go Kings Go

With three consecutive impressive home victories the Los Angeles Kings continued their torrid pace in the absence of star goaltender Jonathan Quick. Los Angeles has now won 9 of 10 games and 8 of 9 since the arrival of surprise rookie goaltender Martin Jones. In a victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday Jones registered his third shutout in 8 NHL starts. The rookie is now a perfect 8-0 in his NHL career with a remarkable 0.98 goals against average. He’s given up just 8 goals in 8 games started. Jones is just one victory away from matching Ray Emery’s NHL record of nine consecutive wins to start an NHL career. Jones’s start is all the more impressive since its taken place in a three-week span whereas Emery’s start took place over three seasons. The Kings are now an incredible 14-2-3 since Quick went down with his groin injury.

LA Kings Hockey

LA Kings

Week Recap: Lost in the performance of Jones are the impressive productions the Kings are getting from their deep roster of forwards. In Tuesday’s win over the Oilers Dwight King notched is ninth goal of the season, with Jordan Nolan and Dustin Brown also scoring for Los Angeles. King would score again on Thursday night versus San Jose, his tenth goal in just 37 games played this season. Prior to this season King had scored just 9 goals in 80 career games. Thursday night the Kings and Jones held the Sharks scoreless for the first 57:30 of the game before Patrick Marleau scored a late goal to ruin Jones’s bid for a fourth shutout. Alec Martinez, Tyler Toffoli, Jeff Carter and King would all score for Los Angeles. Like King, Toffoli has given Los Angeles great production lately, with 17 points in just 23 games played this season. Saturday night Los Angeles jumped out 2-0 over the Colorado Avalanche only to see the Avalanche tie the game to send it to overtime. Los Angeles would prevail in the shootout to earn the 3-2 victory. Jeff Carter and Justin Williams scored the Kings two goals.

The Week Ahead: Los Angeles has a light upcoming week due to the holiday schedule. They host the Dallas Stars on Monday night at STAPLES Center with Jones looking to tie Ray Emery’s record for most consecutive wins to start a career. Los Angeles then has give games off before they face the Nashville Predators in Nashville on Saturday the 28th. The week of rest should give the Kings some time to recover from the nagging injuries that some of their stars have been dealing with recently. After facing Nashville the Kings have three tough road games in a four game stretch away from STAPLES Center. The road trip includes games at Chicago and St. Louis.

Where they stand: The Kings have the third best record in the National Hockey League. With 54 points they are three points behind the Anaheim Ducks, who also have the best record in the Pacific Division. Los Angeles is just two points behind the Chicago Blackhawks for the second best record in the league. The Kings will face off this Jan 25th against the Ducks in the Stadium Series!

Can the Kings Win The 2014 Stanley Cup?

Los Angeles Kings

Go Kings Go


Coming off a disappointing end to their 2012 season, the Los Angeles Kings open the 2013-2014 NHL Regular Season with a two game road trip that includes visits to Minnesota and Winnipeg to take on two members of the new NHL Central Division, next Thursday and Friday. Following the two game road swing the Kings open at the Staples Center on Monday (October 7) versus the New York Rangers. Kings Vs Rangers Tickets are starting at $35.00 per ticket. The Kings are looking to get back to the Stanley Cup finals after losing in the Western Conference finals last season to the Chicago Blackhawks. The Kings run toward the title in the upcoming season will take place in the re-aligned Pacific Division. The NHL re-aligned the divisions this offseason and the Pacific Division now includes the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.

The Kings kept most of the core of their roster this offseason, with a few minor but not drastic changes. The core group of talent, which includes a nice mix of veterans and young talent, remains. The Kings lost Rob Scuderi to Pittsburgh in free agency. The veteran defenseman was a capable and gritty player. Will Mitchell, back from a season long knee injury, is healthy and should mitigate the loss of Scuderi. Up front the Kings lost Dustin Penner, who returned to the Anaheim Ducks in free agency. Winger Matt Frattin, acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Jonathon Bernier trade, will capably replace Penner and in the Kings minds likely produce more consistency.

The key for the Kings remains goaltender Jonathon Quick. The veteran netminder and former Conn Smythe Tropy Award winner is a difference maker between the pipes who sets the tone for the Kings top ten NHL defense. The rest of the Kings defensive unit is anchored at the blue line by Drew Doughty, young star Slava Voynov, youngster Jake Muzzin, Mitchell and Matt Greene. The defenseman crew is a nice mix of offensive talent, youth, and gritty veterans. Upfront the Kings have kept their offensive core together, including Jeff Carter, Mike Richards, Justin Williams, Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Jarret Stoll. Frattin, who emerged as a solid two-way player with the Maple Leafs last season, will be matched with Carter and Richards on the Kings first line, a great opportunity for the former Leaf to flourish. Like in the defensive unit the Kings have a talented group of young options up front as well, including Tyler Toffoli who put together a solid late season stretch of play, as well as Tanner Pearson and Linden Vey. Both Pearson and Vey put up solid numbers with the Manchester Monarchs last season.

With Bernier now in Toronto as part of the Frattin trade the big question for the Kings is whether or not Scrivens can provide good minutes as the backup goaltender. The Kings were outclassed by the Blackhawks in the finals after two tough series victories over St. Louis and San Jose. Last year’s condensed NHL season meant a lot of minutes for Quick. With the league back to its full regular season schedule the Kings will need solid minutes from Scrivens to rest Quick. The new Pacific Division will allow the Kings to travel less, but also includes the same tough teams from the former Pacific, as well as the Vancouver and Edmonton. The Canucks remain a talented and veteran team, while the Oilers have the best young talent base in the NHL.By:Chris Michaels

Do the Ducks have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup?

Anaheim Ducks 2013-2014 Season

Anaheim Ducks


With many picking them for fourth place in the Pacific Division the Anaheim Ducks put together a tremendous regular season, overshadowed only by the Chicago Blackhawks and their remarkable regular season. The Ducks lost their momentum and suffered an early playoff exit at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings, dampening their outstanding regular season. With both Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry signed to long term extensions the once cloudy Ducks future is clear and under Head Coach Bruce Boudreau the Ducks should make another strong regular season push this year.

Do the Ducks have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup?

Up front: The Ducks have an elite combination up front in former MVP Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. Both are among the most talented players in the NHL and the Ducks have locked them up with long term deals. In the new salary capped NHL signing players to expensive long-term deals comes with a price. In the case of the Ducks the move to sign Perry and Getzlaf eliminated their ability to sign the third member of their big three, Bobby Ryan. The big American forward was a consistent force for the club, scoring 131 goals over the past four seasons. He’s off to Ottawa for a package that features former Senators second round pick Jakob Silverberg. The Swedish forward is a talented player who put up solid numbers last season in Ottawa. He’ll be relied on to inject some new playmaking into the lineup and fill in for the loss of Ryan. The other player who’ll be counted on to provide some of the grit and size the Ducks lost with the trade of Ryan is Dustin Penner, re-acquired from the Los Angeles Kings. The former Ducks forward remains big and talented, but has had an up and down career. If Penner can recapture the star form he’s shown at times throughout his career the Ducks may not miss a beat with the loss of Ryan. Last season Anaheim was in the top ten in goals scored and had an elite, top five power play. With their two stars back the Ducks should be as strong as ever in special teams.

Between the Pipes: Anaheim has two solid and experienced goaltenders in Jonas Hiller and Viktor Fasth who split duties last season. They both performed well and this arrangement should serve them well in the long NHL regular season. If either player gets injured or has a poor spell of play the Ducks have young star John Gibson waiting in the wings. The twenty-year-old was voted the Most Valuable Player when the United States won the IIHF World Junior Championships. He’s one of the elite up and coming goaltending prospects in the National Hockey League. The trio gives the Ducks a goaltending situation that is the envy of many NHL clubs. Of course the strategy of goaltenders sharing time often creates an issue of who will lead the team when the playoffs arrive. NHL teams typically run with one goaltender during the Stanley Cup playoffs and the Ducks will have to decide who the top netminder is for their eventual playoff run.

On the Blue Line: The Ducks defense thrived last season with the arrival of Sheldon Souray and the continued evolution of Francois Beauchemin as an elite NHL defenseman. The two veterans provided solid two way play and timely offense during the regular season. Unfortunately for Ducks fans both players are now coming off injuries with Beauchemin having offseason knee surgery and Souray injuring his wrist in an offseason training accident. The Ducks expect Beauchemin back towards the beginning of the regular season, but Souray will likely miss the first two months. With Souray out the Ducks will need Cam Fowler to continue is ascent as a potential top NHL blue-liner. The young American had a breakout year last season, evolving as an elite stay at home defenseman. Luca Sbisa, Bryan Allen, Toni Lydman and perhaps young talent Hampus Lindholm round out the Ducks defensive group.

Young Talent: Beyond the veteran stars the Ducks front office has done a fine job in developing a group of young and talented players. Kyle Palmieri, Emerson Etem, Peter Holland, and Sami Vatanen all played roles in the team last season, with Palmieri and Etem playing significant roles. Combined with Gibson and Lindholm, soon to arrive, the Ducks may have the best farm system and group of young players in the NHL. The development of this players into future stars is a key reality to the new NHL. Salary cap limitations and the need to spend big money on stars like Getzlaf and Perry shows the need for a bench and the Ducks are in a solid position. This group of talented players will play a big role on the ice this season as well as potential trade bait as the NHL trade deadline comes late in the season.

So can they win the Stanley Cup? The Pacific Division will be a challenge. It’s a deep group of teams that includes perennial powers like the Kings, Sharks and Canucks and the up and coming Edmonton Oilers. Most have the Ducks predicted to either win or finish in the top three in their division. They’ll be in a strong position to earn at least one of the new wildcards and have a fighting chance to make a deep playoff run. Come playoff time the health of their defense is important as is the need to settle on a number one goaltender. The other key factor to watch will be the complacency question with Getzlaf and Perry. Players react differently to big contracts and there’s always the chance that performance can wane. Both players had solid years last season but poor years the season before. The Ducks will need scoring punch from Perry, like in his MVP year, and the solid two-way play that has marked Getzlaf’s career. If the two superstars play to their potential the Ducks are a strong candidate to win the Stanley Cup in their 20th season as an NHL team.
