LOS ANGELES — Aside from their lopsided win at Dallas on March 2, the Los Angeles Kings have looked like anything but a playoff-caliber team since the Olympic break.

Indeed, after a 4-2 loss at Nashville in which the Kings were badly outworked and outskated, they put in another poor effort, one in which they failed to at least match the intensity of their opponent, the Montreal Canadiens, who skated out of Staples Center with a 4-2 win in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans on Saturday night.

On September 23, the Kings announced that they have hired Rich Hammond, currently the Deputy Sports Editor at the Los Angeles Daily News, as their beat writer/columnist for their official web site, lakings.com, starting on October 1.

“I’m grateful to the Daily News for allowing me to develop my passion for covering hockey and I’m excited about the opportunity to bring even better, more comprehensive coverage to Kings fans while maintaining the same journalistic standards,” said Hammond. Read more of this post
