Frozen Royalty Audio/Video: LA Kings Come From Behind To Beat St. Louis, 6-4

LOS ANGELES — Jake Muzzin scored two goals and tallied an assist to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a come-from-behind 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Blues in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans at Staples Center on March 5.

Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo opened the scoring at 15:09 of the first period, and he jumped up into the play after the Kings coughed up the puck behind their own net. Pietrangelo ended up in the left corner, where he tried to throw the puck in front to forward David Perron, who drove hard to the front of the net when the Kings turned the puck over. Kings defenseman Slava Voynov tried to fight off Perron, but the puck deflected off Voynov and into the net.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — One day after their resounding 5-2 victory on April 30, which gave them a 2-0 series lead over the St. Louis Blues in their best-of-seven Western Conference Semifinal playoff series, the Los Angeles Kings knew that they were more than a bit lucky in Game 2.

“That was probably one of the worst periods they’ve had in their season, so far,” center Anze Kopitar said of the Blues’ play in the first period of Game 2.

Indeed, the Blues came out flat to start the game, totally abandoning the solid defense that was so successful for them this season. In fact, their defense was non-existent in the first period, allowing the Kings to drive through the middle of the ice, directly to the front of the net, totally uncontested. Read more of this post

EL SEGUNDO, CA — As they have been in each of the two previous seasons, the Los Angeles Kings are heavy underdogs in their first round playoff series, this time, against the Vancouver Canucks, starting tonight at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Canucks earned the best record in the National Hockey League, winning the President’s Trophy for the second consecutive season, while the Kings brought up the rear among Western Conference playoff teams as the eighth seed.

“We know what we’re up against,” said Kings head coach Darryl Sutter. “Say what you want, the Vancouver Canucks have won more games in the last year and a half, counting playoffs, than any team in the National Hockey League. That’s a task in itself.” Read more of this post
