    Bottom of the league, new coach, goalie injuries. There's no way to sugarcoat it: The Kings are in trouble this season. LA's players seem to have taken an extended preseason, so hopefully, no one noticed that Thx Bud did too. But we're back!

  • Welcome Back Carter

    01/03/2018 Duração: 56min

    Chanelle and Diane celebrate the return of Jeff Carter, and then eat their words on Dion Phaneuf just a little bit. Then saying goodbye to goalie Darcy Kuemper stings, but at least new addition Tobias Rieder has already scored. Plus, it's important to finally get a chance to shout about Olympic hockey (gold! yes!) and some of the funny ups and downs around the league.

    Heading out of All Star weekend, the Kings nab a commanding win AND there's Jeff Carter news. Rejoice! Plus, fans get to celebrate Alec Martinez being man with a degree in addition to being funny, cute and a scorer of important goals. However, WHY IS MIKE FISHER COMING OUT OF RETIREMENT?!

  • 129: Dinner Theater

    25/01/2018 Duração: 47min

    Well, the Kings did exactly what we told them not to do and lost 6 games in a row. AND Jonathan Quick has a nagging injury. They finally managed to pull out a couple wins, but it's tough to trust in a turnaround. At least Darcy Kuemper and Christian Folin are adorable roommates?

  • 128: All-Star Friends

    18/01/2018 Duração: 52min

    The LA Kings have three all stars! Unfortunately, it's hard to tell they have any when they're on a 4-game losing streak.

    04/01/2018 Duração: 51min

    Nearly halfway through the season, the LA Kings are 2nd in the West!

Celebrate, dammit! Plus, USA Hockey makes history with their Olympic roster.

And can Jeff Carter send fans proof of life? Anything!

  • 125: Burn Notice

    12/12/2017 Duração: 01h03min

    One month since our last recording... the Kings are back to winning! Anze Kopitar looks more and more confident, Dustin Brown is feeling free, and the return of Marian Gaborik and Kyle Clifford mean the team has also started tinkering with the roster. Chanelle and Diane get caught up on trades and that 8-game win streak. Outside of LA, the NHL starts bgeins down the long road toward putting a team in Seattle.

  • 124: Dad Power Dynamics

    14/11/2017 Duração: 33min

    Two losses in the same week... Is this what being average feels like?! The Kings have faced a little more adversity recently, but Chanelle Berlin and Diane Phan focus on the bright side. Oscar Fantanberg scored his first NHL, Dustin Brown is still tearing it up, and Jonathan Quick still hates Corey Perry deeply! All is right in the world.

  • 123: The Unbearable Thirstiness of Dean Lombardi

    07/11/2017 Duração: 53min

    While the Kings continue their best start in franchise history, their old buddy Dean Lombardi is back in the news, talking about his former team.

  • 122: Young Gunning It

    31/10/2017 Duração: 49min

    The LA Kings are currently 3rd in the NHL, which DOESN'T MAKE SENSE, but Chanelle Berlin and Diane Phan love riding the wave. Adrian Kempe is the first rookie to score a hat trick, Kurtis MacDermid has scored his first NHL goal and Jonathan Quick earns a shutout in his 500th game! It's a beautiful time for Kings fans. We're so happy to not cheer for, let's say, the Arizona Coyotes, who finally earned their first win of the season this week. Yikes.

  • 121: Dustin, You're Doing Amazing, Sweetie

    17/10/2017 Duração: 52min

    The best 5-game start in Kings history! Week 2 of the season still has Chanelle Berlin and Diane Phan basking in that winning feeling. LA's sitting pretty at the top of the Pacific division thanks to hard work from Anze Kopitar, That 70s Line, and the resurgence of Dustin Brown. Kuemper also gets his first start while young guys are buzzing for their first goals. Around the league, things turn emotional in Tampa and Boston has a rookie to absolutely watch.
