Overtime for the Kings

M45V8CEE3YKZ The Kings now have an 8-1-6 record under Darryl Sutter. Is this hockey or soccer? The number of overtime games of late has been astounding — 10 of the last 16 games — and the Kings now have 10 overtime/shootout losses, tied for Florida for most in the NHL this season. That’s what makes the Kings a difficult team to get a handle on.

These are your Kings

“The Kings are going to win it this year” I said with a grin on my face. “Philly West? Really?” she said unconvinced. “Watch and you will see” I said as I turned and walked away. Call them Philly West. Call them the Kings. Call them the Rulers of the NHL. The term “Flyers West” has been tossed around for years now and I’ll admit it - for the most part it’s true. The GM Dean Lombardi and Assistant GM Ron Hextall both have deep Philadelphia Flyers ties. Add to that the coaches Terry Murray a
