October 20 postgame quotes: Martinez, Gilbert

Alec Martinez, on whether there was “relief” with the win: It obviously wasn’t the start we wanted, but I think this was a hard-fought game, it was really emotional, and there was a little bit of everything in terms of situations. I think that we can take the positive. I think this was probably the best 60-plus … [-minute] game that we’ve played all year, and I think the...

Don’t get to invested just yet

Last night I watched the Wild completely dismantle the Kings in St. Paul. I commented to my wife that this was the best I had ever seen them play… maybe ever. Is it that talent is finally emerging after going through growing pains for a few years? The deft hand of Bruce Boudreau? The fact that the Kings were without starter Jonathan Quick, while the Wild are generally healthy?...

Kings GM expects Jonathan Quick out 'about three months'

Jonathan Quick’s injury will keep him out longer than initially estimated. Quick suffered a groin injury in the same place he injured it in 2013 last week during the Kings’ season opener against the San Jose Sharks. The 30-year-old slid awkwardly in his crease and labored getting up. He was soon replaced with Jeff Zatkoff. According to Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times...

The Kings’ Start Isn’t as Bad as It Looks

0-2. Two games, three goals scored, two dispiriting losses. Jeff Carter doesn’t have a point. Devin Setoguchi, Teddy Purcell, and Dustin Brown haven’t reached the score sheet either. Carter, Purcell, Matt Greene, Derek Forbort and Trevor Lewis are minus-2 or worse. Jeff Zatkoff is 0-2 with a save percentage of .891. Adding injury to insult, Marian Gaborik is on the injured reserve...

Chronic Challenges Looming for Kings – Part 2

Jonathan Quick tries to fight the Sharks, leaves game injured

Jonathan Quick has always had a bit of a temper, and it was on display right away to start the 2016-17 season. In the second of NBC’s Wednesday Rivalry Night games, the Sharks hosted the Kings, and tempers boiled over after Logan Couture tied things up in the first period. As the Sharks celebrated, Quick rushed out of his crease and tried to fight the first Sharks skater he could...

Kings, Drew Doughty share common vision for success

Drew Doughty isn’t the fastest skating defenseman in the NHL. He’s not its best playmaker or its most stylish passer. He doesn’t have the hardest shot. He isn’t its highest scorer. Or best checker. He doesn’t fight. He isn’t the...
