Ducks 2, Kings 0

The Kings had a 5-on-3 advantage early in the third period, but Alexei Ponikarovsky then took an offensive-zone penalty. The Ducks got a 4-on-4 goal, as Ryan Getzlaf made a great stretch pass, then jumped back into the play and scored. Brendan Mikkelson shot from the right side and Getzlaf scored on... Read More

Last chance to shine

Five forwards -- Kyle Clifford, Rich Clune, Trevor Lewis, Andrei Loktionov and Brayden Schenn -- remain in contention for roster spots, and all will be in the lineup for tonight's preseason finale. The final roster cuts are expected to take place tomorrow, so I asked Terry Murray if those players st... Read More

Murray talks goalies

The competition, such as it was, is over, and Jonathan Bernier has been named the Kings' backup goaltender over Erik Ersberg. In the end, Ersberg never even got into a preseason game, and his chances of making the team (not terribly strong to begin with, in all honesty) took a huge hit early in trai... Read More

Tonight’s game (no stream)

For reasons not totally clear, the Ducks have announced that foxsportswest.com has canceled tonight's planned streaming of the Kings-Ducks game at Honda Center. There will still be Kings radio coverage on 1150-AM and affiliates, and we'll try to do a live game chat here as well. Here's how the Kings... Read More

Bernier wins backup job

Terry Murray has announced that Jonathan Bernier has won the backup goalie job. Erik Ersberg is not on waivers and -- this is just my amateur analysis here -- probably wouldn't be until tomorrow at the earliest, in case Bernier should get hurt in today's game. More updates to come...... Read More

Goalie news

Erik Ersberg was not on the ice for practice this morning. I'm told that an announcement is coming shortly, but it doesn't take much imagination to guess what's going on. Jonathan Bernier was the first goalie off the ice and almost certainly will play the whole game tonight. Details to come shortly.... Read More

Frozen Fury tonight

Here's to hoping everyone in Las Vegas has a great time tonight. I'll be in Anaheim for tomorrow's preseason finale, but am enjoying some much-appreciated R&R time today. There is no Internet stream of tonight's game -- because there's no video board at the arena, I'm told -- but the game is on the ... Read More

Another level for Richardson?

Scott Parse's training-camp groin injury has put a wrinkle in the Kings' plans to get more secondary scoring from…Scott Parse. Penciled in as the second-line left winger, Parse isn't likely to miss much time (if any) at the start of the regular season, but if he does, Brad Richardson will fill that ... Read More

Line, please…

In Las Vegas tomorrow night, the Kings will go with a fourth line of Rich Clune, Trevor Lewis and Kevin Westgarth. Sunday night in Anaheim, players such as Kyle Clifford, Andrei Loktionov and Brayden Schenn are slotted for action. This time next week, it's no stretch to think that any of those six p... Read More

Parse has not been on the ice since he was injured in the preseason opener on Sept. 22 in Colorado. Brad Richardson will remain paired with Jarret Stoll and Justin Williams on the second... Read More
