LA Kings Force Game 7 Against Sharks

LA Kings Vs Sharks Tickets

SHARKS VS KINGS

After a third consecutive victory the Los Angeles Kings are on the brink of accomplishing what only eight other NHL teams have done, coming back from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game NHL playoff series. Justin Williams scored twice to propel the Kings to a 4-1 victory over the visiting San Jose Sharks, evening the opening round NHL playoff series at three, and setting up a highly anticipate game seven on Wednesday night. The two teams will play a seventh game in a playoff series for the third time in four seasons in one of the best playoff rivalries in recent history.

Tied at one heading into the third period Williams scored his second goal of the game at the 11:56 mark. Williams was able to knock home a loose puck that wasn’t quite controlled by Sharks goaltender Alex Stalock, much to the chagrin of Sharks head coach Todd McLellan. The Sharks head coach thought Stalock, making his first start in the series, had sufficiently controlled the puck. In a comment indicative of how desperate things have become for San Jose McLellan said after the game that “We (Sharks) got cheated”. The two teams were deadlocked in a tight 1-1 battle at the time. Replays were inconclusive, but did indicate that the puck wasn’t completely controlled. Trying to corral the puck as it slipped behind Stalock, Sharks defender Matt Irwin may have accidentally knocked it in. The decision to start Stalock was predicated by the poor play of Sharks goaltender Antti Niemi. After solid play in the first three games of the season the playoff inconsistency that Niemi has shown in years past, especially against the Kings, returned at the worst time possible. Stalock kept it close, but after the Williams go ahead goal the Kings were able to blow the contest open. As many predicted goaltending is becoming a story in the series. After a slow start in the first three games Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick is proving once again that he’s one of the elite netminders in the NHL. Quick has allowed just one goal in the last two games of the series, won by Los Angeles with a combined 7-1 score.

After Williams scored his second goal of the game to give the Kings the lead for good, Anze Kopitar scored two goals in a one minute and fifteen seconds span to put the game away for good. Kopitar notched his second and third goals of the series and has now scored in all six games of the series. Kopitar provided the assist on Williams’ second goal, giving the Kings captain three points. Drew Doughty added two assists for Los Angeles.

The Sharks played without top defender Marc-Edouard Vlasic, out with an upper body injury. Vlasic’s availability will be a big question mark as the two teams head into game seven. Who Todd McLellan plays in net will also be a big factor. Stalock is an unproven playoff performer with just 27 regular season appearances under his belt. The decision to stay with Stalock or go back to Niemi will be a big storyline as the series moves into its final game.

Game seven is Wednesday night at the Shark Tank in San Jose. The winner will move on to the second round to face the Anaheim Ducks.

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.

KINGS

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.

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.

Kings beat Devils 2-1 in an Overtime Game 1 Finish!

The Los Angeles Kings are on FIRE this year! The 1967 founded NHL team has never won a stanley cup and has only one other Conference Championship before this year and are just three wins away from their first Stanley Cup win ever. It was an unbelievable sports season for Los Angeles in the 2012 professional sports; both NBA teams made it to the finals and for a moment all three teams were championship contenders.

The Los Angeles Kings became the first team in the history of professional Hockey to win their first nine road games in a post-season. If they win Game 2 on Saturday at the Prudential Center versus the New Jersey Devils, the Kings will be tied for an NHL record of most road wins in a post season. It also means when they do head home to the Los Angeles Staples Center the Los Angeles Kings will be not only enjoying a home-rink advantage but will be encouraged by a 2-0 starting point.

Wednesday nights game Kings vs. Devils was an intense 60 minutes of non-stop nail biting that led the Kings to a 2-1 win that included once again overtime where the Kings stood to lose everything. However, even Devils coach said his team didn’t deserve the win against the Kings as the Devil’s only goal came from a lucky bounce off of Kings defensive Slava Voynov. The Kings have had a ferocious season with flawless transitions and quick breaks out of the box and of course star player Jonathan Quick always at the ready to make his big stops. Now Kings fans gear up as the Kings grind out one more away game before returning to the Los Angeles Staples Center at LA Live!
