    The David vs. Goliath analogy is made way too often in sports. But, not many people expected the Kings not to endure a bit of an ass-whomping (technical sports term) at the hands of the San Jose Sharks on Monday night. But, a three goal outburst by the Kings, in the third period, sealed a 4-2 victory. Alexander Frolov netted two, while Lubomir Visnovsky and Dustin Brown each added one. After the game, people...

    (AP Photo/Jeff Lewis) Remember the other day when I was telling you all about how the Anaheim Ducks had started the season unbeaten? Those were good times, eh? That was Friday. Friday night the Ducks played the Calgary Flames. And they lost. Ooops. My bad. I should mention that I also wrote early last week about the Republican control of the House and the Senate. Hmm. Interesting. I totally should blog about how I've...

    (AP Photo/Chuck Stoody,CP) Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. That's how it goes, right? Normally. But, someone forgot to tell the Anaheim Ducks about that whole "losing" thing. Opening the season with a groin-grabbingly impressive 12-0-4, the Ducks have set an NHL record for going unbeaten in 16 games. Beating the mark of 15 , held by the '84 Oilers. And last night they set that mark with style by destroying the Vancouver...

I didn't actually read the book. I was probably watching hockey instead. Last night we saw tales of two California cities....

    AP photo by Jae C. Hong When the best moves made by an organization in the off season are in the front office, you can probably bet that it isn't going to be a stellar year on the ice. However, new GM Dean Lombardi was instrumental in turning San Jose into a legit contender. And new coach Marc Crawford is a flat-out winner. He coached the Avs to a championship in 1996. The previous...

    AP Photo by Jae C. Hong Probably the main reason for the Ducks being eliminated from last season's NHL playoffs was the tower of power on the Edmonton defense named Chris Pronger. So, in the spirit of not being able to lick something, so you join something or other, the Ducks traded for him this off season. Pronger, when combined with Scott Niedermayer, gives the Ducks the best one-two punch on defense that the...

    You may be saying to yourself, "I'm from Los An-ga-lese, bub. I care not for, nor do I understand, this hockey of which you speak." And, well, fair enough. However, there may be some things about hockey that you don't realize. Things that could potentially get you to open your minds and hearts to the sport. And that is why I am here. As a Canadian, I can be your guide into the weird...
