99 Cents Only Store Jumps the Stanley Cup Final Gun

It seems like the folks at the 99 Cents Only store were prepared for a Los Angeles Kings sweep Wednesday night based on their two ads in Thursday’s Los Angeles Times.

If for some reason the Kings choke and don’t win the Stanley Cup, I know who to blame now.

Fred Roggin Failed to Get Stanley Cup Final on NBC

Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final just wrapped up and if you don’t get the NBC Sports Network at home, you’ve missed the last two Los Angeles Kings home games.

NBC4 sports anchor Fred Roggin tried to get his station to air the games locally but didn’t have any luck, according to SportsByBrooks.com:

The good news is NBC will carry the remaining Stanley Cup Final games. Game 5 is Saturday night in New Jersey.

Bob Miller, Jim Fox to Call Game 4 … Sorta

Los Angeles Kings announcers Bob Miller and Jim Fox will call Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final Wednesday night, but only fans inside Staples Center will have the opportunity to hear the broadcast duo.

Tom Hoffarth of the Daily News points out the Kings are working out an arrangement where fans can hear Miller and Fox at the concession stand and in-house on the radio. The call of the game will eventually be on LAKings.com. If the Kings lose Game 4, Miller and Fox are expected to call the remaining games in the series.

Even though Kings fans are having the rare pleasure of listening to Doc Emrick call their games for a change, it would be great if NBC switched over to Miller and Fox for the final minutes if the team is on the verge of winning their first Stanley Cup.

Video: LA Kings Fans Invade E3

What happens when (drunk?) Los Angeles Kings fans invade L.A. Live during the E3 convention?

To our folks here from out of town for E3, you might not want to park that rental car on the street Wednesday night. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

NYC One-Ups LA Media with Latest Hockey Blunder

Well, it looks like Los Angeles isn’t the only media market that’s having trouble with the NHL playoffs.

According to WABC in New York City, the Los Angeles Kings are playing the New York Islanders — not the New Jersey Devils — in the Stanley Cup Final.

Feel better, CBS2, NBC4 and Fox 11?

98.7FM to Drop Commercials for LA Kings Simulcast

In a unique move, KYSR (98.7FM) will drop their commercials during all Stanley Cup Final games and instead switch over to the Los Angeles Kings simulcast for live play-by-play on sister station KTLK AM 1150.

“Our listeners are so excited about the LA Kings’ success so far, and we are in the business of giving our listeners what they want,” Julie Pilat, 98.7 FM program director said in a statement. “They want to hear their favorite Alternative music, and stay close to what’s happening in the Stanley Cup Final. They can do both now with 98-7fm.”

The Stanley Cup Final gets underway Wednesday at 5 p.m.

LA Kings Infographic Pokes Fun at Local Media

Due to all of the confusion by the local media regarding the hometown hockey team, the savvy Los Angeles Kings created a infographic going forward for the remainder of the NHL playoffs.

Their social marketing department definitely deserves a huge raise after pissing off Western Canada and poking fun at all these erroneous TV reports.

LA News Butchers Another LA Kings Story

You can add CBS2 to the growing list of local news stations (NBC4, Fox 11) that have butchered stories during this Los Angeles Kings playoff run.

If you look closely, you will notice B-roll footage of the Sacramento Kings mascot — not Bailey, the LA Kings mascot.

Don’t let me down, ABC7.

Alyssa Milano Taking Over NHL Twitter Account

Los Angeles Kings season-ticket holder and actress Alyssa Milano is taking over the official Twitter account of the National Hockey League Thursday night during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

Commenting on sports is nothing new for Milano as she previously penned a blog for Major League Baseball.

It’s a great time to be a Kings fan as our boys are two wins away from their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance in nearly 20 years.
