Erin Andrews & Chrissy Teigen Go To War With Jarret Stoll’s Ex-Girlfriend

  I knew the tweet was going to start a war when Erin Andrews figured out that Jarret Stoll’s ex, Katie Cassidy, was trashing her on Twitter over her sideline abilities during the NFC Championship game. And the odds were good that Pageviews defender Chrissy Teigen would take time out of her busy schedule to fire off a shot for Carmen Sandiego. Cassidy and Jarret Stoll dated before...

Kings lose seventh shootout of the season in loss to Ducks

Tie games have become a nightmare in Los Angeles. Two wins and 10 losses in overtime. Even worse, one win and seven losses in shootouts. Maybe it's too tough to play 82 games like they're all Game 7.  On a night where emotion was nearly enough to carry the Kings to a big, Pacific Division win over their Freeway Faceoff rivals from Anaheim, they fell short in the shootout. Somehow...

LA Kings Twitter makes suicide joke

Typically, the Los Angeles Kings have been one of the NHL’s most unique social media members, with a Twitter feed that is one of the more entertaining in all of pro sports.

Martinez on loss to Jets: 'You can't give up that many goals and expect to win'

Are the Los Angeles Kings in dire straights or are they on the up-and-up again? It's difficult to tell at the moment.

Los Angeles Kings reveal new Stadium Series Jersey

The Los Angeles Kings Stadium Series jerseys have officially been revealed. As previously speculated, they're going to be wearing ice cream sandwiches for the outdoor game against SJ. I think I might give these an an edge over the San Jose Sharks version of the two-tone design. Tough to say. Still want to wait until I see them in-game. Both are a lot better than any of last year...

Drew Doughty says the Kings need to “turn this thing around quickly”

The Los Angeles Kings have been a difficult team to analyze so far in 2014-15. At home, the Kings are a strong side with an 11-4-1 record. On the road, their record is 4-6-5.
