The five new California franchises in the AHL will play fewer games than the rest of the league.
The AHL schedule will have most teams playing 76 games while the California teams will only partake in 68 contests. "The feeling in development is if you play three-in-three, it’s a tough game. The third game is not a real development game," Los Angeles assistant GM Rob Blake said four months ago. "We can get away from that if it’s a reduction if there are a certain amount of games during the season." The AHL is worried about all the extra travel Bakersfield, San Diego, San Jose, Stockton and the Ontario Reign will do to the players, resulting in the reduced schedule. Jun 14 - 6:48 AM

GM Dean Lombardi disputed some of the facts that the New York Post ran on the weekend when they stated that the Kings players locked coach Darryl Sutter out of the locker room.

Lombardi said that it happened in Tampa Bay on Feb. 7 not in the last two weeks of the season on the road. It also happened during an eight-game winning streak according to Lombardi so the transgression did not bother him.

Larry Brooks of the New York Post is reporting that Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter was locked out of the locker room by his players following a loss on the road in the last two weeks.

The Kings players are apparently tiring of Sutter's ranting and raving and responded by putting barriers against the doors when he tried to enter after a game. It should be an interesting off-season in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Kings are in danger of becoming the first defending Stanley Cup champions since the Carolina Hurricanes to miss the playoffs.

Carolina has made the postseason just once since winning the Stanley Cup back in 2006. Los Angeles is on the brink of being eliminated after suffering a 4-2 loss to Edmonton, but the Kings fate isn't sealed yet. However, Los Angeles needs to win against Calgary and San Jose in order to have a realistic shot of advancing.
Apr 8 - 11:04 AM

The Los Angeles Kings are just 3-15 in games that are settled in overtime or a shootout.

That includes Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks. "I don't know what's going on this year," said Kings forward Anze Kopitar. "We haven't been very good, obviously. That doesn't matter right now. We've just got to make sure we go into Edmonton tomorrow and make sure we get the two points." Los Angeles is a point back in the playoff race going into Tuesday's game against Edmonton. If the Kings end up falling short then they can point to their inability to secure the second point after the 60-minute mark as the root of their elimination.

Darryl Sutter wants the Kings aiming for more than a postseason berth.

"Everybody's trying to make the playoffs," Sutter said. "We still have the opportunity to get home ice, as 'desperate' as we are. We still have the opportunity to go home in two weeks, so it's one of the two. You’re not going to get a wild-card spot. The Wild Card's out of the picture." Los Angeles, which doesn't currently occupy a playoff spot, is three points behind the second Pacific Division seed Vancouver Canucks. If the Kings claim that spot they will have the home-ice advantage in the first round. They'll have to be superb over their last seven games to pull off that comeback though.

The Los Angeles Kings have not allowed a power play goal against them since February 12.

The Kings are a perfect 20-for-20 when killing off a penalty and are now 22nd in the NHL at 80.2 percent efficiency, up from 77.8 percent 16 days ago.

The first period tends to be the worst for the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings have been outscored 36-46 in the opening frame, but they have a 97-83 edge beyond that. Being forced to often play catch up has taken its toll on the Kings though and they need to start coming out of the gate stronger. That will be one of their goals in Thursday's game against Florida.
Feb 5 - 9:42 AM

The Los Angeles Kings AHL franchise will be in Ontario, California next season.

The Kings have been in Manchester, N.H. but wanted to move their AHL team closer to home for ease of moving players up and down. They will be known as the Ontario Reign. Manchester will get an ECHL franchise next season, replacing the one in Ontario this season.

The Los Angeles Kings have gone 1-2-2 in their current homestand.

Los Angeles will try to at least somewhat salvage their homestand on Monday against Calgary. The two teams are tied with 51 points in 45 contests in the battle for the second Wild Card spot, although if the playoffs were to start today, the Kings would be out as they'd lose the tiebreaker. Los Angeles has built a reputation for being more of a playoff team than a regular season squad, but if the Kings don't step up in the final months of the season, they won't get a chance to compete in the playoffs.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter would love to see an All-Star Game format that pitted the Stanley Cup winners against the rest of the league's best.

"It's true, and I believe that firmly because once you've gone through it, especially when they haven't had one since the last time we won it – meaning the first time we won it – then everybody that was part of those two [teams], if you were in such a hectic schedule, I believe they all should get that opportunity," Sutter said. "And if you think about it, in the old days, being a hockey fan, the Stanley Cup team played an All-Star team. I remember that as a boy." It would be interesting. Obviously the squad of all-stars would have more talented on it, especially in the cap era were parity is, no pun intended, king. However, the Cup winners would be used to playing together and that counts for something. The league would never go for it though as they want all 30 teams to have representation in the game and there would be no way to accomplish that under this format.
Jan 12 - 10:58 AM

The Los Angeles Kings scored three times in the final 2:30 of regulation to send the game into overtime.

Unfortunately for the Kings, the Predators scored 18 seconds into the overtime to get the victory 7-6. The Elias Sports Bureau stated that it was the first time that a team came back from a three goal deficit in the last two-and-a-half minutes since the Oilers did it on March 30, 2003.

The Los Angeles Kings will start a seven game homestand on Saturday.

The Kings are 14-4-2 at home this season so the current homestand should allow them to get some breathing room in the playoff race as they are currently fifth overall in the West but only one point ahead of the ninth place Calgary Flames.
Jan 3 - 7:54 AM

The Los Angeles power play has been on fire of late as they have scored 10 goals in their last 23 opportunities.

The Kings are now eighth in the NHL as they are scoring at a 20.6 percent rate with 26 goals in 126 chances. In other news, Darryl Sutter moved into fifth place on the Kings all-time list as he picked up his 116th win as an LA coach surpassing Tom Webster.

Kings GM Dean Lombardi feels the fact that Slava Voynov's cap hit is still on their books is evidence that "the system is dysfunctional."

The Kings have been up against the cap ceiling and recently could only dress five defensemen because they're still responsible for Voynov despite his indefinite suspension. By contrast, the Toronto Maple Leafs aren't responsible for Carter Ashton's cap hit while he serves a 20-game suspension for his use of a banned performance-enhancing substance. "It has nothing to do with what he did," Lombardi argued, referring to Voynov. "What he did is off to the side. That's indefensible. But if a guy does steroids — that's indefensible in its own right, too, but they're separate issues — you immediately get the cap space. What's ridiculous about this, if he gets convicted we get the cap space. If he doesn't, we're in never-never land. We get nothing. It's totally dysfunctional."
