2015 NHL Awards Show That League, Writers Still Have Serious Credibility Issues

COMMENTARY/ANALYSIS: West Coast players were shut out once again from the major National Hockey League awards, the league’s annual showcase of its best and brightest, just another reminder of how much of an embarrassing joke the NHL awards have been for years.


LOS ANGELES — The 2015 National Hockey League awards have come and gone, and once again, they have proven to be a complete joke.

“I think we stuck with it for 60 minutes,” defenseman Alec Martinez said about the win over Chicago. “I thought our penalty-kill was a lot better.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Carter scored two goals and added an assist, Tyler Toffoli scored a goal and added an assist, and Jake Muzzin scored late in the third period to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a come-from -behind 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks in front of a standing-room only crowd of 18,525 at Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 28.

Anze Kopitar contributed two assists for the Kings.

The Blackhawks opened the scoring after Kings rookie defenseman Brayden McNabb blocked a shot, only to see the puck deflect right onto the stick of Chicago forward Patrick Kane below the right circle. Due to the bounce, Kane had a gaping net to shoot at, giving the Blackhawks the lead just 1:58 into the game.
