Sutter, Martinez Relieve Tension In LA Kings Dressing Room With Cinco de Mayo-Related Joke

EL SEGUNDO, CA — As the media waited near the Los Angeles Kings’ dressing room area door at the their practice facility on Sunday morning, something rather unusual caught our eyes.

As some of the Kings’ players walked to the ice surface for an optional skate, one was very different from the rest, wearing a green practice jersey, a white sock on one leg, and a red one on the other.

But here’s the kicker…that player was also wearing a sombrero as he walked by, immediately drawing laughter from the media, and soon after, fans at the Toyota Sports Center, as defenseman Alec Martinez skated onto the ice.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Down 2-0 in their first round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues, the Los Angeles Kings, for the most part, took the time to rest up for Saturday’s Game 3 at Staples Center (7:00 PM PDT; televised locally on Fox Sport West), although some players skated.

With the exception of Dustin Penner, the players who spoke to the media on Friday did not skate, including Rob Scuderi, Jarret Stoll, and Mike Richards. Head coach Darryl Sutter also spoke to the media, and Frozen RoyaltyNHL on YouTube is the only source for the full interview with Sutter.

Return Trip Will Be Impacted By Repair Work For LA Kings Fans Planning To Ride Metro Expo Line To Saturday’s Game 3 vs. St. Louis

Metro Expo Line riders who will be attending Game 3 of the first round playoff series between the Los Angeles Kings and the St. Louis Blues on Saturday, May 4, at Staples Center, should be advised that Metro will be replacing a support pole that was taken out on April 4 by a driver who was allegedly under the influence of a controlled substance.

The driver was headed the wrong way on Flower Street, just south of Washington Boulevard, when he hit a pole that supports the overhead catenary wires that provide electrical power to the trains, as well train control signal heads that were also in the vicinity (see Metro’s photos of the aftermath here).

St. Louis Blues Present A Different Challenge For LA Kings This Time Around

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings qualified for the 2013 post-season party as the fifth seed in the Western Conference, and will face the St. Louis Blues in the first round, with Game 1 in St. Louis tonight (5:00 PM PDT, televised in Southern California on Prime Ticket).

For those who may still have the Kings’ sweep of the Blues in the second round of last season’s playoffs on their minds and believe that the Kings will enjoy similar success this time around, you can forget about that.

In fact, the Blues are likely to give the Kings a serious run for the money, and they have a good chance of winning the series, even though the Kings dominated the Blues in head-to-head competition during the regular season, sweeping the three games and outscoring them 14-7 in those contests.
