Thu Oct 30, 2014

Kings pondering what roster move to make

Wed Oct 29, 2014

NHL coaches regularly stress the idea that regular-season games in October are just as important as those in April, but that only goes so far. In the Kings’ case, it means exercising caution with injured forwards Anze Kopitar, Marian Gaborik and Trevor Lewis, even during a week when the team is faced with a major roster crunch.

Tue Oct 28, 2014

The Kings, or at least what remains of them, lost Tuesday for the first time in more than two weeks.

Kings beat Columbus, lose Kopitar

Sun Oct 26, 2014

LOS ANGELES – The Kings are winning games and losing players, both at rates that seem unsustainable.

Fri Oct 24, 2014

They’re without a top defenseman, a top goal scorer and one of their best defensive forwards, and their goalie started the season with a wrist that wasn’t at 100 percent after summer surgery. These are the Kings, who are off to one of the best starts in franchise history. The Kings have a 5-1-1 record after Thursday&r

Thu Oct 23, 2014

LOS ANGELES – After three days of off-ice drama involving Slava Voynov, the Kings no doubt welcomed the chance to play a game Thursday night, particularly one against the Buffalo Sabres.

Kings support NHL's decision to suspend Voynov

Tue Oct 21, 2014

EL SEGUNDO – The Kings don’t know when, or if, defenseman Slava Voynov will return to the ice. They don’t know when, or if, they will get salary-cap relief in order to replace him on the roster. All the Kings know, for certain, is there’s a game Thursday against Buffalo, and they need to be prepared. The K

Voynov, 24, was suspended indefinitely by the NHL from all team activities, a move the Kings say they support. Voynov has not been formal

Scant offense but Kings still winning

Sun Oct 19, 2014

LOS ANGELES – They aren’t doing much for the collective blood pressure inside Staples Center, but the Kings are finding ways to win their home games.
