la kings trade rumors

The Los Angeles Kings come out in victorious fashion as they end a horrible four-game road trip through the southwest. Hockey in the southwest…insert jokes here. And before you go on about LA having a hockey team, remember this! The Kings were a part of the 1967 expansion  double the league from the Original Six. With that being said, LA comes out of the south with a 3-1-0 record. (more…)

The LA Kings Start Their Season…Now!

The Los Angeles Kings may start their season two days after some other NHL teams, but I prefer to think about it as some NHL teams jumped the gun on starting the season before the Kings opening night. It is here ladies and gentlemen of the Nation of Kings. The new hockey season has begun! (more…)

The Penguins continue their road trip as they make their way to Carolina to face Eric Staal and the Hurricanes. This is the first of three meetings between the two clubs. Carolina currently sits atop their division with 19 points. They have gone 1-4-0 in their last five games and look to end February with a win tonight.

Coming off of a loss to the Panthers on Tuesday, the Penguins need to get back to basics and play better in their zone. The Penguins are in first place in the division and second in the Conference.

Game Time: 7:00 pm est

Penguins(13-7-0) @ Carolina(9-8-1)

What to Watch For

For the first time since being traded last summer, Jordan Staal will face his old team in the Pittsburgh Penguins. As Penguin fans we all know what to expect from Staal, so he is absolutely a player to watch tonight

Just as Jordan Staal is the player to watch for the Canes, Brandon Sutter is the man to watch on the Pens. Sutter came over from the Jordan Staal trade.

Avoid bad Penalties. What appears to be the story of the season, the Penguins found themselves in Penalty trouble during the game against the Panthers which led to 4 power play goals against in their 6-4 loss.

Starting Goaltenders

Penguins-Mar Andre Fleury (10-4-0)

Carolina-Cam Ward (6-6-1)

Penguins Buzz

Keep an eye on Calgary, it is believed if Calgary opts to move Iginla, the Penguins could make a move to acquire him.

Around the League

There is a possibility that the Flyers could be looking for defensive help and one forward they may part ways with is Danny Brier.

The Charlotte Checkers’ success has stemmed from their success scoring the puck both even-strength and on the power play, where they currently rank first in the American Hockey League, while also playing strong defense to limit the number of opportunities opponents have.
