Keith-less Hawks stuff LA’s home winning streak; Kings face elimination Saturday in Chicago

By Brad Vandenberk

Game 4 of the Western Conference gifted us with nothing but story lines before the puck was even dropped.  Duncan Keith was assessed a 1-game suspension for an uncontrolled high stick to the face of Jeff Carter in game 3.  Keith received a four minute minor during the game, but the league wanted more and suspending the Hawks D man.  Carter received 22 stitches in his mouth and chipped a few pearly whites.

Mike Richards did not dress once again for the Kings missing his 3rd straight.  But with Keith out, the Kings were looking poised to get the win to tie the series.

Sheldon Brookbank was inserted into the lineup to take Keith’s “spot”.  Read more »

Kings bounce back, defeat Hawks 3-1 in Game 3 in L.A.

By Brad Gardner

The Los Angeles Kings held serve with a 3-1 win on home ice over the Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Goals from Justin Williams and Slava Voynov spotted the Kings a 2-0 lead, which was enough for Jonathan Quick and a tight-checking Kings defense to remain undefeated at home during the playoffs.

Corey Crawford stopped 25 of 27 shots and kept his team in the game the whole way. The penalty kill also played a big part in keeping the score close, finishing a perfect 5-for-5 against the Kings powerplay. Despite the loss, the Blackhawks maintain a 2-1 series advantage. Read more »

TTMI~Radio returns this week with a look to the Pacific Division and the upward bound Los Angeles Kings.  We are joined by The Mayor of MayorsManor.com, who gives us the lowdown on all-things LA Kings. 

Terry Murray’s Kings, led by stars Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown, Jack Johnson and many others figure to be a prominent fixture and pain in the side of teams like the Blackhawks, Sharks and Red Wings not only in 2010-11 but for many years to come.

For you Twitter-ers, you can also follow The Mayor @ Twitter.com/Mayor119

In the last half hour of the show, we explain what went wrong with last week’s show (a transcript of my interview with player-agent Scott Norton will be posted on the site in a day or two) and why the live show hasn’t been posted on line to date as well as why Antti Niemi and agent Bill Zito made the right choice in signing with the Sharks.

As for our discussion with the Mayor, we covered many topics, including, but not limited to….

- Review and fallout of Kings’ first-round exit dealt by the Canucks in April

- Interesting battle brewing between the pipes this season between Jonathan Quick and rookie Jonathan Bernier.

- Facts behind the Kings’ pursuit of Ilya Kovalchuk

- Likelihood Jack Johnson could be dealt and the Kings’ pursuit of a true #2 centreman

- Updates on talent-rich prospect field including; defenseman Thomas Hickey, Colton Teubert, Vyacheslav Voinov, Alec Martinez and Nicolas Deslauriers and yet another goaltender, Martin Jones.  As well as when we can expect to see forwards Brayden Schenn (who many believe could become the Kings’ #2 center much sooner than you’d think) and Russian winger Andrei Loktionov.

- As young and talented as the Kings were a year ago, four of their more-recent 1st round picks are in-line for solid NHL careers, but have yet to crack LA’s roster.

- The signing of former ‘Nucks blue liner Willie Mitchell

- Who’s the real leader in LA?  And an interesting behind the scenes story of an event that led to the Kings’ turnaround last season.

- Wayne Simmonds

- Matt Greene, Brad Richardson and more key Kings you may not know but should

- LA Kings fans and the atmosphere inside Staples Center

- Southern Cal vs Northern Cal rivalry

Again, check out Mayor’s work at MayorsManor.com.

TTMI~Radio returns Monday night, September 13th @ 8pm central at BlogTalkRadio.com/TheThirdManIn.
