Good Morning, Columbus

Good Morning Insiders and Good Morning Columbus! Another short flight last evening after last night’s game and the Kings have arrived in their third city in three nights – Columbus, Ohio. I still have visions of the old Columbus logo, the mark they had when they started as an NHL franchise. I... Read More

Good Morning, Buffalo

Good Morning Buffalo and Good Morning Insiders! The Kings touched down in Buffalo last night after a short flight from Detroit in advance of tonight's meeting in Western New York. The last time I was in Buffalo was the last time I was in my home state of New York. The date was May 28 and ... Read More

Good Morning, Detroit

Good morning Detroit and Good Morning, Insiders! Your first Good Morning blog of this four-game road trip and an introduction that I will be taking you on this ride for the first time. Excited to share my voice a little bit more to the NHL readers and what better way to start doing so than with t... Read More

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. Hello from the team hotel downtown, one I'll always remember from a Silvertips road trip early in the 2007-08 season. Every time we arrive here - which is often late at night - I think back to my first extended road trip in the WHL, and how our c... Read More

Good morning, Edmonton

Good morning, Edmonton, and good morning, Insiders. An off-day in Edmonton! Fortunately, there is a template for this cornucopia of possibility, as was shared by The Royal Half in 2014. A sequel to TRH Europe's Stockholm Syndrome, the provocative yet tender The Royal Half Goes to Edmonton continu... Read More

Good morning, Vancouver

Good morning, Vancouver, and good morning, Insiders. Pool party! While this room has a private deck some eight-to-10 steps from a swimming pool and would surely make for a festive indoor-outdoor space in the summer, everyone who has lived in these parts knows that summer is only held from July 4 ...

Good morning, St. Louis

Good morning, St. Louis, and good morning, Insiders. Well, this is new. The LA Kings have left their downtown St. Louis digs to hole up in the suburbs in advance of Monday night's game. This is a good thing. There's not really a lot going on downtown, especially on a Sunday when Charlie Gitto's i... Read More

Good morning, Nashville

Good morning, Nashville, and good morning, Insiders. So! The second day of the first back-to-back of the season is upon us. Generally, on the eve of the schedule release, these are the things I ask SCHEDULOR, Benevolent NHL Scheduling Deity: 1. Where am I for my wife's birthday and Valentine's... Read More

Good morning, Chicago

Good morning, Chicago, good morning, Insiders, and good morning, uh, first back-to-back of the season. It was an easy flight from Los Angeles that pushed back at 8:30 a.m. and landed in Chicago at 2:45 p.m. local time. It was a calm and uneventful flight, with only minimal turbulence right as we ...

Good morning, St. Paul

Good morning, St. Paul, and good morning, Insiders. It's the World Series again, in case anyone hadn't noticed, and the Dodgers are playing games while the Kings are on a road trip. Last year, much of the series took place during the latter portion of an Eastern Canada swing, which meant there we... Read More

Good morning, Dallas

Good morning, Dallas, good morning, Central Division, and good morning, Insiders. Good morning, Game 1 of the World Series. The Dodgers went 1-1 while we were in Ottawa earlier this month, bringing my all-time Dodgers record in Canada's capital to 2-1. Good news for Mrs. Insider: They did not fin... Read More

Good morning, Ottawa

Good morning, Ottawa, and good morning, Insiders. "Does this hotel have views of Parliament?" I innocently asked Nick Nickson in the hotel lobby at 1:30 a.m., knowing full well that, were I to be so fortunate, there might be a Munters unit to longingly describe in sonnet form. No such luck! Thoug... Read More

Good morning, Montreal

Good morning, Montreal, good morning, Youppi!, and good morning, Insiders. It's a fine, if rainy, morning in a city we see so infrequently. I've shared this about New York in the past: there are certain cities we visit where there's sometimes an awed hush while we drive through them. It's not nec... Read More
