October 8 practice quotes: Brown, Greene

Dustin Brown, on his hit on Logan Couture: Like I said, I didn’t even know it was even a big deal until after the game, really. I didn’t also see the hit. I still haven’t seen the hit. It was one of those [hits where] I stopped and he was going north, and I was going south. It wasn’t anything that I thought [was controversial], at least when it happened, […]

Lucic: Assessment of match penalty “because of who I am”

Six months but only one regular season game removed from their last meeting, the rivalry between the Kings and Sharks reached a near-boiling point on Wednesday night as San Jose’s 5-1 win was marked by four fighting majors, four roughing minors and a match penalty assessed on Milan Lucic when Los Angeles’ power forward hit Logan Couture away from the play, near the Sharks’ bench, after Couture had laid a […]

Waking up with the Kings: October 8

No banner-raising ceremony preceded the Kings’ season opener Wednesday night, though in vein with their losses to Chicago in January, 2013 and San Jose in October, 2014, they fell flat in a season opener that did not represent any noticeable leap from the style of play associated with the preseason. A sloppy, disjointed assemblage of missed passes, amoebic five-man units and poor checking, the Kings were not the faster team […]
