Good morning, Philadelphia, and good morning, Insiders.
Hey, we're on the East Coast again! In a bizarre scheduling quirk, 46% of the team's road games this season take place over an eight-week, two-day span bridging mid-December to mid-February. So that means after this mid-Atlantic and Florida ... Read More
There are a lot of people extremely proud of Wayne Simmonds being named to his first career All-Star Game. It spans the entire continent, from his hometown of Scarborough, to Philadelphia, where he has emerged as a beloved fan favorite, and back in Los Angeles, where he began his career before being...

There are personnel concerns for this Kings team at the moment – without Marian Gaborik, Tanner Pearson and Jonathan Quick, the lineup isn’t as balanced, and there’s no All-World goalie in net – but the manner in which they allowed four second period goals exuded a more unfamiliar unease than that b...

Anze Kopitar, on the second period:

On the team’s performance:
I think both teams were sort of in a feeling-out in the first period. A pregame thing, and then I think in the second period they scored two goals on two really bad line changes by our team. Then you’re in a little bit of a different mode.

A good day to you from El Segundo, where the Kings have returned to their team areas for meetings and video sessions after a morning skate. Several notes:
-It wasn't a full-team skate; Jeff Carter wasn't among those on the ice. Don't panic; as a refresher, he often takes the option in the morning. ... Read More
