Kings hopeful they can get well again on the road

Records show the Kings have roughly the same record at home as on the road. They are 12-15-2 at Staples Center, 11-15-4 away from it. Each mark is good for 26 points. But after going 3-2-1 on their most recent road trip, the Kings just finished a homestand in which they went 0-2-1. After the Kings dropped a 3-2 decision to the Stanley Cup-champion Washington Capitals on Monday night at Staples Center, rookie forward Austin Wagner talked about the lack of success in their friendly confines. He wa...

‘Beat LA’ Has Become a Bruins’ Benchmark

For the second time in three seasons, the Boston Bruins have done their part in entirely fulfilling the notorious ‘Beat LA’ chants, which have rendered the city hoarse over the past four eventful months. With two wins over the Los Angeles Kings in a week, the Bruins vaulted over a benchmark of sorts, directly correlated to their ensuing play in recent runs to the playoffs. Prior to a 4-2 victory on Saturday at Staples Center, pushing the B’s winning streak to five games, the teams played in four...

Kings’ Alex Iafallo working hard for goals, wins

LOS ANGELES — Kings forward Alex Iafallo plays for a team that has had difficulty putting the puck in the net this season. The Kings were averaging 2.40 goals going into Monday’s game against Washington at Staples Center, with only the Ducks lower at 2.20. It is therefore understandable there would be some personal scoring droughts along the way, and not just from Iafallo, who has played the majority of the season on the top line centered by Anze Kopitar. Iafallo in December scored goals in four...

Kings rookie Austin Wagner longs for winning days

For a young guy, rookie forward Austin Wagner knows all about his Kings and their Stanley Cup titles in 2012 and 2014. When he was asked postgame Saturday night after the Boston Bruins scored two late goals to defeat his team 4-2 at Staples Center if this is a learning process — especially for the young guys — Wagner spoke like a veteran. “All of us want to win,” said Wagner, whose Kings are 23-29-6 (52 points) and reside at the bottom of the Western Conference standings.

Clippers knew what they were getting with Ivica Zubac

LOS ANGELES — It’s a small world after all. L.A. basketball fans are well aware that Lawrence Frank, the Clippers’ president of basketball operations, traded Mike Muscala to the Lakers for Ivica Zubac at the trade deadline last week. But there are only a few degrees of separation in basketball: Frank, as the head coach of the New Jersey Nets, once coached Zubac’s cousin, Zoran Planinic. The 6-foot-7 guard played for Frank in New Jersey from 2003 to 2006, averaging 3.8 points in 10.7 minutes per ...

Kings’ Trevor Lewis thrilled to be back after three ‘frustrating’ months

EL SEGUNDO — Trevor Lewis didn’t know what it was like to miss three months of a season, because he never had an injury that kept him out that long. Until this season.

The Kings lost 6-4 at Washington, but Lewis had an assist and wore a smile on his face after practice Wednesday suggesting he got a lot more than that out of it. “Yeah, it was great,” said Lewis, whose t...

Coyotes Weekly: Reinforcements on the Way

Last week at this time, the Arizona Coyotes were in the midst of a four-game losing streak during which their power play wasn’t scoring and their playoff hopes were diminishing by the day. What a difference a week makes – the Coyotes have scored three power play goals in their last two games, they’ve won two straight against current Western Conference playoff teams, and they’re just four points off of the pace in the race for the final wild-card spot.
