Frozen Royalty Audio: Kopitar, Stoll, Quick, Sutter Face The Music, Down 2-0 In Series vs. San Jose

LA Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has allowed twelve goals in two games so far in his team’s first round playoff
series against the San Jose Sharks. Although he has pointed at himself for that, taking the blame, as usual, the
truth is that his teammates let him down...and they know it.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — After getting their rear ends handed to them in two embarrassing losses to the San Jose Sharks in Games 1 and 2 of their 2014 Western Conference Quarterfinal series in San Jose, one might expect a somber mood in the Los Angeles Kings’ dressing room at their practice facility on April 21.

But even though you couldn’t call the mood of the team, “jovial,” they remain upbeat and confident, yet serious and focused on climbing a mountain that is now much taller than expected in order to advance to the second round of the playoffs.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — It’s that time of year again.

It’s the time of year when hockey fans all over are either at games, or are glued to a television set somewhere watching Stanley Cup Playoff games, and probably not just games in which their favorite team is playing in.

Indeed, this is the best time of year for hockey fans, and that sentiment is shared by National Hockey League players and coaches as well.

“This is the best time of the year,” said Los Angeles Kings center Anze Kopitar. “Everybody gets excited for it, and it’s no different for us.”

LOS ANGELES — In sports, breaking an individual record is often very rewarding and fulfilling for the player who sets the new record. But it is even more special when the player whose record was broken is present to share the moment. That was exactly the case on March 22, when the Los Angeles Kings defeated the Florida Panthers, 4-0, in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans during a matinee affair at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick earned his fifth shutout of the season, and the 30th of his National Hockey League career. Quick’s 172nd career regular season victory catapulted him ahead of former Kings superstar goaltender Rogie Vachon as the team’s all-time leader in career regular season wins.

Vachon was at the game to share in the moment and to congratulate Quick.

But the season continues for the rest of the professional leagues in North America during the Olympic break, and that is exactly what is happening during the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
