LOS ANGELES – Whether it be an in-game video tribute, an ovation from the fans or simply a few handshakes with security guards, Darryl Sutter insists whatever awaits him at Staples Center Thursday will be taken in stride. “I’m pretty much a middle-of-the-road, neutral guy,” said Sutter, when asked about his return to the city in which he led the Kings to two Stanley Cups. “Don’t get too high, too low.” Surely, no one expected the Jolly Rancher to get all misty-eyed about, well, anything. Those who know him best know exactly what will be on his mind when he returns as an opposing coach for the first time since being fired by the Kings in 2017. “Knowing him, it’s probably getting the win,” said Trevor Lewis, who won Cups with Sutter in 2012 and 2014. “We have a lot of me

Mavericks: Not Good November

Date: 2021-12-01

It’s the start of a new year for the Flames’ ECHL affiliate in Kansas City! After missing the Kelly Cup playoffs in last year’s crazy shortened and re-aligned season, they’re now back at it to try again. The Mavs’ kicked off the early stretch of the year by going .500 through their opening six match ups, and they haven’t managed to get ahead of the curve since. KC has gone 3-6-1-0 in their last ten contests, stumbling their way through the month of November. The team is taking some moral victories, having only a -7 goal differential, but they aren’t being helped by leading the league in penalty minutes at 340 on the year. That’s a full 40 PIMs more than the league’s second highest offenders from Wheeling. As of now, they’re tied for last place in the Mountain Division po

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty ImagesA VERY important road trip awaits the Flames this week. Start packing the bags (again) and getting the passports ready (again) because the Flames are hitting the road (again). Calgary just finished a three game homestand that saw them go 2-1-0 after a grueling trip through the Eastern Conference, playing seven games in eleven days (4-1-2) and it’s right back on the road again. This time, the points are way more valuable as Calgary is taking a trip down the California Highway with stops in LA, Anaheim, San Jose with a visit to Vegas sandwiched in there as well. The Flames haven’t played particularly well against the Pacific as they’ve accumulated a 0-2-1 record so far. Sure,
