Once every 15 years or so…

Call it the ``Moon Shot,'' or ``Air Mail,'' or anything you'd like, but Anze Kopitar's 80-foot bomb of a pass, that led to Dustin Brown's goal late in the third period against San Jose, was still a big topic of discussion on Tuesday. After the game, Murray said he had only seen a pass like that comp... Read More

Giving credit where it’s been due

A little too much time on ice

The Kings, it seems, can't wait to get on the ice, and that's not a good thing. Five times in their last 10 games, the Kings have been penalized for having too many men on the ice.
