Kings on the board
The action is under way on the West Coast, and the Los Angeles Kings have scored that much-needed first goal.

Wayne Simmonds drew first blood for L.A. as he redirected Rob Scuderi's shot past Antti Niemi to give the Kings a 1-0 lead just 3:36 into Game 5 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series at San Jose.
Quote of the Day

I'm here to develop a winning culture and a winning team. There is a bright future ahead of this team.  A lot of young, great hockey players here and on the way … a fan base that's passionate about the game of hockey.
