Brown postgame quotes

Dustin Brown's postgame thoughts… (on the game…) BROWN: ``It wasn't the result we wanted. I think it was probably the best 60 minutes we've played through this so-called slump that we're going through. You look at the goals. They got a power-play goal and a goal off a turnover. We had a lot of c... Read More

Fire away!

``Shot mentality'' is one of Terry Murray's most-used phrases -- it has a slight lead over ``hard and heavy'' this season -- and it's easy to see why Murray feels the need to stress it. The Kings had a solid stretch, in terms of shot totals, earlier this month -- they had at least 34 shots in four c... Read More

Get on the board

There's been a theme during the Kings' three-game losing streak. They have allowed the first goal in each game. In fact, the Kings have a 3-7-0 record this season when allowing the first goal, as opposed to a 10-2-0 record when scoring the first goal. Moreover, it could be said that the Kings someti...

Martinez’s play a positive

Those looking for positives in the Kings' play of late can point to…well, not much, but there is, at least, the play of Alec Martinez. Called up last week, and put into a high-profile pairing with Drew Doughty, Martinez has proved to be capable, and looks far more poised, with and without the puck, ... Read More
