KINGS POINTS LEADER vs INJURED JOHN TAVARES UPDATE:
ARE THE KINGS IN THE PLAYOFFS?:
LooKING Back:Saturday night at Staples Center, the LA Kings played so well in a 4-2 victory against the Winnipeg Jets that you have to think that the players got a big kick out of it.
*sees replay* ...starting to think that Jonathan Quick's groin may be fully healed.— PumperNicholl (@PumperNicholl) March 30, 2014

Man, have you EVER seen a hockey goalie make a save like that?
Ugh, you guys are so annoying.

LA TOURISM BOARD:The Minnesota Wild come to Staples Center 4-4-2 in their last 10, but since the Phoenix Coyotes, Dallas Stars and Vancouver Canucks are all awful... the Wild have been able to hold on to the 1st Wild Card position in the West. Now when Minnesota comes to LA on March 31st... it can only make LA Kings fans think of one thing...
That's right, the only sport with a more pointless regular season than hockey starts today! And you know what that means... lots of hockey/baseball crossover the next few weeks!

That's right, one of Drew Doughty's biggest accomplishments as a Los Angeles King isn't his Norris Trophy nomination nor the Stanley Cup he has won. No, it's getting everyone on the LA Kings roster to wear a Toronto Blue Jays hat.
Or most noticeably... Anze Kopitar.
Miss you, boo.
Well no matter what team the LA Kings players cheer for... I'm sure they are totally passionate about the franchise and its history, right? RIGHT?!?
