LOS ANGELES — Like they did after the raised their 2012 Stanley Cup Championship banner, the Los Angeles Kings came out flat after they raised their 2014 Stanley Cup Championship banner on October 8, 2014 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the San Jose Sharks made easy work of the Kings in a 4-0 win.

Whether or not the Kings were distracted by the festivities may never be known—they denied that after the game. In any case, they were flat and not close to being in synch, making it easy for the Sharks to pick them apart.

Frozen Royalty caught up with defenseman Alec Martinez, winger Dustin Brown and head coach Darryl Sutter after the game. You can also listen to a “state of the league” press conference with National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman, and see a quick video of the Kings 2014 Stanley Cup banner being raised.

LOS ANGELES — On February 3, the Los Angeles Kings suffered yet another defeat, this time, a 5-3 loss to the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. It was their fourth consecutive loss, their ninth regulation loss in the last eleven games (2-8-1 record), and their 14th regulation loss in their last twenty games (4-14-2 record).
