Who Will The LA Kings Play Opening Round

LA Kings Tickets

KINGS

With the NHL playoffs nearing and the races tightening the Los Angeles Kings may have to wait until the last day of the regular season to determine who their first round opponent will be. The Kings are likely locked into the sixth playoff position, but with a logjam at the top of the conference standings the Kings first round opponent is still very much undecided. If the season ended today the Kings would face the San Jose Sharks in the opening round. The Sharks are currently third in the conference, a point behind the Anaheim Ducks and a point on top of the Colorado Avalanche. Just a point behind the Avalanche and two points behind the Sharks, are the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks.

Here’s a look at the potential Kings opening round opponents:

Kings Vs Sharks Tickets

SHARKS

San Jose Sharks: The Kings and Sharks have played five times this season with four of the five games decided by just a single goal. The Kings hold the advantage in the season series, three games to two. Two of the games have gone into overtime, with the Kings winning the opening game between the two teams in overtime and the Sharks winning the second game via a shootout. The two teams played a hotly contested second round playoff series last year, with the Kings coming out on top by virtue of having home ice advantage. Not a single road team won a game in the seven game series. The home ice advantage could prove significant for the Sharks this year who have been outstanding on home ice this year.

Kings vs Avalanche Tickets

AVALANCHE

Colorado Avalanche: The Colorado Avalanche have been a massive surprise this season under first year head coach Patrick Roy, the leading candidate for coach of the year in the NHL this season. The Avalanche has been on fire of late with a six-game winning streak to make a late run toward the top of the Western Conference. The Avalanche has a solid group of talented young forwards, led by center Matt Duchene and winger Gabriel Landeskog. The most exciting Avalanche player is eighteen-year-old center Nathan MacKinnon, the top overall pick in last year’s NHL entry draft. The Avalanche has played two fewer games than the Sharks and Blackhawks.

Kings Blackhawks Tickets

BLACKHAWKS

Chicago Blackhawks: Sitting in fifth place in the conference, but just two behind the third place Sharks, are the defending Stanley Cup champions. After a period of rough play the Blackhawks have rebounded of late and are in the midst of a three-game winning streak. Chicago has decided to sit their captain and best player Jonathan Toews for the remaining of the regular season due to an upper body injury. The Kings and Blackhawks met in the playoffs each of the past two seasons. Los Angeles defeated Chicago in 2012 on their way to a Stanley Cup title. The Blackhawks returned the favor, defeating the Kings in five games last June on their way to a title. Chicago is the odds on favorite again to represent the Western Conference in the Stanley Cup final.

Kings Vs Ducks Tickets

DUCKS

Anaheim Ducks: There’s an outside chance the Kings could face the Ducks in the opening round, if Anaheim somehow loses the second seed. After leading the Western Conference for the majority of the regular season the Ducks were recently surpassed by the St. Louis Blues. With a game in hand and just three points behind the Blues the Ducks still have an opportunity to earn home ice. If the Ducks somehow fall to third they’ll set up what will be a much anticipated opening round series.

With Marian Gaborik Trade LA Kings Look At Playoffs

LA Kings Tickets

LA Kings

Wednesday marked the National Hockey League’s annual trade deadline and the Los Angeles Kings, led by General Manager Dean Lombardi, were active once again. The Kings biggest move was the acquisition of veteran star Marian Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets. Los Angeles sent winger Matt Frattin and a second round pick to Columbus to acquire Gaborik. The thirty-two year-old winger, taken third overall in the 2000 draft by the Minnesota Wild has scored forty goals three times in his career, to go along with two 38 goal seasons.

Here’s a look at what Gaborik will bring to Los Angeles as a member of the Kings:

Tickets for la kings games

“GOAL”

The Kings were aggressive in looking to improve their offense, reportedly making a run at Thomas Vanek, who proved to be too costly of an acquisition. When healthy Gaborik is a dynamic offensive player with tremendous speed and skill, an element the Kings simply don’t have. The former Wild and Rangers star could be the missing element that gives the Kings enough offense to compete with the Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks who the Kings face on April 12th the final game of the 2013-2014 NHL regular season.. The presence of Gaborik, combined with the Kings elite defensive unit and goaltender Jonathan Quick, could make the Kings a very difficult team to beat come playoff time. The Kings are expected to team Gaborik up with Anze Kopitar, potentially creating an elite combination that will benefit both players. The Kings are banking on recapturing the momentum they had back in 2012 when they acquired Jeff Carter from the same Columbus Blue Jackets. Los Angeles traded for Carter and then went on a hot streak that eventually culminated in the organizations first Stanley Cup Championship. With the Kings in the midst of a five-game winning streak the addition of Gaborik could very well vault Los Angeles up the Western Conference standings.

One potential issue with Gaborik is his ability to stay healthy. During his tenure with the Minnesota Wild Gaborik was often injured, a tendency that didn’t carry over to his time in New York but popped up once again this season in Columbus. He missed six weeks early in the season with a knee strain and then suffered a broken collarbone, two injuries that have left him largely ineffective this season. Gaborik returned on February 27th versus the New Jersey Devils and scored in his first goal.

What Our Fans Say

In addition to Gaborik the Kings also traded for young Buffalo Sabres defenseman Brayden McNabb. The Kings sent prospects Hudson Fasching and Nicholas Deslaurier to Buffalo for McNabb and Jonathon Parker. McNabb is a big, 6’4”, defenseman who will boost the Kings already formidable defensive depth. The move to trade Fasching, who’s had a tremendous season this year for the Minnesota Gophers, will be interesting to watch over the next several years. After a difficult draft season that saw him fall out of the first round to a fourth round pick, Fasching has improved his stock once again and was arguably the best player for the United States in the recent World Juniors.

You can see the newest member of the LA Kings when they return to the Staples Center on March 13th to face the Toronto Maple Leafs which is also Jim Fox Bobblehead night. LA Kings Tickets for Bobblehead night start out at $55 per ticket and go up to $175 for center ice seats.

Anaheim Ducks Keep On Flapping

Ducks Tickets

Ducks

The roll continues for the Anaheim Ducks. After starting the week with an uncharacteristic home loss to the Winnipeg Jets, their first loss at Honda Center this season, the Ducks swept consecutive games with their Southern California rivals, the Los Angeles Kings. Thursday night’s win at Honda Center and Saturday’s victory in the first ever outdoor game at Dodger Stadium has given the Ducks a seven point lead on the Chicago Blackhawks for the top overall record in hockey. Anaheim has just six games before the near month-long break for the Sochi Olympic games, all but one at Honda Center. Ducks Tickets for all games at the Honda Center are on sale now.

Ducks Tickets

Ducks

Week Recap: The Ducks returned home Tuesday night after a tough road swing to face the scrappy Winnipeg Jets. Cam Fowler opened the scoring for the Ducks just four minutes into the first period, only to see Winnipeg storm back on goals by Blake Wheeler, Andrew Ladd and Evander Kane to take a 3-1 lead. Nick Bonino would score his 16th of the season to pull the Ducks within a goal, but Anaheim was unable to solve the Jets further. The loss was the first home defeat of the season for the Ducks. Repeating the form they’ve shown all season the Ducks swept consecutive games versus the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday and Saturday. The Saturday game, the first ever outdoor game at Dodger Stadium, was won by the Ducks 3-0. Jonas Hiller shut out Los Angeles for his 20th career shutout while Corey Perry, Matt Beleskey and Andrew Cogliano scored for the Ducks, with Perry scoring his 28th goal of the year. The win was the 21st victory in 24 games for the Ducks, who’ve taken a commanding lead in the Pacific Division.

Ducks Schedule

Ducks Vs

The Week Ahead: The Ducks have an opportunity to extend their league-leading record with three games at home this week, Tuesday versus Minnesota, Thursday versus the Philadelphia Flyers and Saturday versus the Dallas Stars. All three teams are either out of the playoff race or fringe playoff contenders. The Wild, who are currently in 7th place in the Western Conference, feature are led by forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter. After a rough start the Philadelphia Flyers have rebounded and are currently tied for 8th in the Eastern Conference with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Philadelphia is led by Claude Giroux, one of the top centers in the league. Giroux leads Philadelphia with 47 points on the season. The Ducks play just one road game in their six games leading up to the Sochi Olympic games.

Where they stand: With 83 points the Ducks have the top overall record in hockey, seven points up on the Chicago Blackhawks for top overall record in the Western Conference and the National Hockey League. Anaheim is nine points up on the suddenly hot San Jose Sharks in the Pacific Division. San Jose has won their last six games.

The LA Kings Arent Playing Like It

Kings Vs Ducks Tickets

Kings Vs Ducks

In a week where they badly needed to pick up some key victories the Los Angeles Kings are mired in perhaps their toughest stretch of the season, going winless over the past week to run their overall losing streak to five games. After losing consecutive road games in Boston and Columbus Los Angeles returned to Sourthern California and were swept in back-to-back games by their LA rivals, the league leading Anaheim Ducks. The second of the back-to-back contests was the much anticipated outdoor game at Dodger Stadium, taken by the Ducks 3-0.

Kings Vs Ducks Tickets

Kings Vs Ducks

Week Recap: Monday night the Kings lost a tough one in Boston to a solid Bruins team. Boston jumped on top 2-0 on first period goals by Brad Marchand and Torey Krug. The Kings fought back to tie the game on goals by Willie Mitchell and Jeff Carter, only to see Marchand score his second goal of the game just 18 seconds after Carter scored to tie the game at 2. The Bruins would hold on to the victory, and the Kings would go on to Columbus for the second half of a back-to-back. The Kings scored the first goal Tuesday night in Columbus on a tally by Dwight King only to see the Blue Jackets score consecutive first period goals by RJ Umberger and Ryan Johansen to go up 2-1. Jeff Carter notched his 20th goal of the season early in the second to tie the game at 2, but the Blue Jackets took control with three consecutive goals to put the game away. Martin Jones had a tough night in goal for the Kings. With three consecutive losses the Kings returned to Southern California for two with Anaheim. The Thursday and Saturday games were a big test and the chance for Los Angeles to make up ground on the NHL leaders. The two games, won by Anaheim via a combined score of 5-1 are an indication of just how strong of a club the Ducks have become. Anaheim is seemingly able to adapt to any opponents style, winning high scoring contests as well as gritty defensive games, like Thursday night at the Honda Center. The Kings were shut out Saturday night by the Ducks Jonas Hiller, putting the Ducks 19 points up on their division rivals.

Kings Schedule this week

Kings Vs

Up next for the Kings: The upcoming schedule doesn’t get any easier for the Kings. Los Angeles travels north to face the San Jose Sharks on Monday night, following by an immediate trip to Phoenix to take on the Coyotes on Tuesday night. They then round out the week by finally returning to STAPLES Center to face Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday and the Philadelpia Flyers on Saturday night. Pittsburgh’s trip to Los Angeles will give Kings fans their lone opportunity to see the universally regarded best player in hockey, Sidney Crosby. The Penguins star is on track to win yet another league MVP award this season.

Where they stand: With 64 points the Kings are in sixth place in the Western Conference, five points behind the Colorado Avalanche and twelve points behind the San Jose Sharks.

The Kings face off against the Ducks two more times at the Staples Center once on March 15th and then again on April 12! All Ducks Vs Kings Tickets have no service fees on any ticket. Chris Michaels

Best Place To Sit Kings Ducks Dodger Stadium

Stadium Series Dodger Stadium

Stadium Series

With the success of the NHL Winter Classic, which this year pitted the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings in front of over one-hundred-thousand at the University of Michigan football Stadium, the National Hockey League has greatly expanded the number of outdoor games. This year the burgeoning tradition will include a unique matchup between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium. The Southern California game will be held on January 25!

Where is the best place to sit in Dodger Stadium for the Stadium Series Game?

Kings Vs Ducks Tickets Dodger Stadium

Stadium Series/ Image from Dodgers.com

Since there hasn’t been a hockey game at Dodger Stadium yet it’s a bit tough to say exactly where the best seating location for the Kings Vs Ducks game is. It is also a personal preference as to where you like to sit for a hockey game. Some people like to sit as close to the action as possible while others like a higher view as to be able to see actual plays develop. Others like the action coming at them so they prefer to sit behind the goal and just have too look forward the entire game.

The the reserve level at Dodger Stadium will give you what seems to be a great overview of all the action going on. Loge should give you a great view as well. For people who like to be closer down of course Field Box is the way to go.

The Dodger Stadium contest will feature the team with the best record in the National Hockey League, Anaheim, and the Los Angeles Kings, winners of the 2012 Stanley Cup. The red hot Ducks, behind the superstars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, lead the NHL with 75 points and are currently on a seven-game winning streak. Getzlaf and Perry are fourth and sixth in the NHL in scoring with forty-eight combined goals between them. They’ve helped lead one of the NHL’s most dynamic offenses and will be a stern test for Jonathan Quick and the elite Los Angeles Kings defense.

The Kings have had a solid season fighting through several key injuries including losing their All-Star goaltender Quick for nearly two months due to a groin injury. Los Angeles boasts a deep roster of talent including one of the top defensive corps in the NHL. The catalyst for the Kings success is Quick who returned from his injury on January 8th. The Kings are currently sixth in the Western Conference with 61 points, well within striking distance of Chicago and Anaheim for the top seeds in the conference.
Anaheim and Los Angeles will meet at the Honda Center on Thursday, January 23rd, two nights prior to the outdoor game. The doubleheader will give the Kings golden opportunity to make up ground on the Western Conference leaders immediately, adding additional intensity to the rivalry between the two Southern California teams.

The NHL will utilize technology first used during an outdoor game in Las Vegas in 1991. The Kings also played in the Vegas game in 1991 and despite temperatures that reached 85 degrees the ice held up the warm conditions. Like in Las Vegas the game will be played at night to mitigate temperature issues. Over the past several years the league has perfected the technology behind their portable refrigeration equipment they use for the outdoor games. The game at Dodger Stadium will reportedly be able to seat as many as 70,000 people, creating unique memories for Los Angeles hockey fans.
