Hiller makes statement by shutting out Kings

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

LOS ANGELESAnaheim Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller knew he had to make a statement early in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium

In his previous start, four days earlier, Hiller was pulled in the second period after allowing three goals on 11 shots to the Winnipeg Jets. He knew people – his coach, Bruce Boudreau, his teammates, the Los Angeles Kings and the fans that packed the iconic baseball stadium – were wondering how Hiller would respond.

Lovejoy: L.A. crowd goes 'nuts' for hockey

Ben Lovejoy - Special to NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy loved everything about the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, especially because his Ducks took a 3-0 decision against the Los Angeles Kings. It is the second time in 48 hours Anaheim has beaten its fiercest rival.

In the third and final installment of his blog for NHL.com, Lovejoy talks about the atmosphere of the game, his role in one of the game's defining moments -- the penalty shot by Anze Kopitar -- and what his lasting memories will be.

LOS ANGELES -- That was the coolest thing I have ever done playing hockey. That was such a spectacular night for the Ducks, for the Kings, for the NHL. The crowd was so impressive out there. That game means so much to hockey in this area and it was so cool to be a part of it - and to win.

I remember who has won every outdoor game the NHL has had so far. It's a focal point for the League. I will remember the atmosphere here, but the taste in my mouth would have been way worse if we had lost that game.

Muzzin: Outdoor experience 'awesome' despite loss

Jake Muzzin - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin enjoyed everything about the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, except the outcome.

In the third and final installment of his blog for NHL.com, Muzzin talks about the atmosphere of the game and the frustration of losing to the Kings' archrival for the second time in three days.

LOS ANGELES -- The loss hurts, but the experience Saturday night at Dodger Stadium was simply awesome.

Not too many people can say they were at an outdoor game in California, let alone that they got to play in one. It was really cool. I'm really fortunate to be a part of it.

The atmosphere was amazing and the fans were really loud. I didn't think it would be that loud because typically we're used to fans being right on top of us, right on the glass. But with the music and the fans and the yelling, it was pretty loud.

Loss to Ducks spoils outdoor experience for Kings

LOS ANGELES -- Their pre-game anthem, "We Are Los Angeles," blared through the Dodger Stadium speakers just as it does at Staples Center. The "South Park" skit played on the scoreboard. The outfield video screens implored fans to "Go Kings Go!"

As much as the Los Angeles Kings made the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series opener feel like a home game, not much changed once the puck dropped for the first outdoor West Coast regular season game in League history.

The Kings can't score indoors or outdoors after a 3-0 loss Saturday night to the Anaheim Ducks, who have kept L.A. scoreless for 116 minutes and 47 seconds during their past two games after surrendering an early goal in a 2-1 home win on Thursday.

Social media excitement for Dodger Stadium game


Social media is abuzz with content regarding the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings at Dodger Stadium. Check out some tweets, pictures and videos surrounding the event:

Stars come out for Stadium Series game in L.A.

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Only in Los Angeles could a red-carpet event at a hockey game produce the kind of palpable buzz that was so evident two hours before puck drop Saturday night at Dodger Stadium.

There was KISS in full costume and makeup, Alyssa Milano talking about her love of sports, particularly hockey, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brian Wilson sporting his long beard, and Wayne Gretzky photobombing actor and entertainer Tom Arnold.

"This is a wonderful night, a spectacular event, only a positive for hockey and a positive for sports in California," Gretzky said. "It's an opportunity too to show people how great a hockey city this is."

Kings-Ducks Stadium Series game sold out


Tickets for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings at Dodger Stadium are sold out, the League announced Saturday.

More than 54,000 fans are expected to be inside the historic baseball stadium Saturday night (9:30 ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS2) to see the first regular season NHL game outdoors in the western United States.

Ducks and Kings get their turn to shine outdoors

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Jealousy and envy used to be the emotions that Corey Perry and Anze Kopitar experienced when they would turn on an NHL outdoor game. They'd see the spectacle of the event, the volume of media coverage, the grassroots appeal and have thoughts such as, "Good for them, but that'll never be us."

Saturday night at Dodger Stadium it will be them -- minus the snow and frigid temperatures.

The Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings are ready to play the NHL's first warm-weather outdoor game to kick off the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series (9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS2). The teams practiced at Dodger Stadium on Friday to get a taste of what they will be walking into Saturday night.

For Perry, Kopitar and others like Dustin Brown, Ryan Getzlaf, Teemu Selanne and Jonas Hiller, guys who have been in this market since the NHL's outdoor game explosion started in 2008, getting the chance to play in this game gives them the opportunity to check an item off the bucket list they have for their hockey careers.

Players want to play in these outdoor games. Now the Kings and Ducks get to play in a regular-season game that should make other players around the League jealous.

"It's one of those things you're hoping you're going to be a part of one, but usually you've got better odds playing in the east to participate in one," Kopitar said. "I guess there's a slight hope in your system where you want to play even here, and it's nice that this dream, I guess, comes true."

Mister Cartoon offers new take on logos

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

LOS ANGELES – Mister Cartoon, an art icon in the Los Angeles area, is always looking for ways to give back to the community that only nurtured his artistic bent, but also provides inspiration for the art that has earned him international acclaim.

So when presented with an opportunity to work with the NHL and the Los Angeles Kings to help promote the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium between the Kings and the Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium, Mister Cartoon jumped at the chance.

"This is a great project, a combination of different teams," he said. "Being able to draw the Ducks logo, the Kings logo and the Stadium Series logo and bring it together with a little bit of street graffiti edge of something that was born right here in L.A.."

He also knew he could provide even more exposure for the Para Los Ninos Charter Middle School in the deal.

Lovejoy: Fun on Friday, serious on Saturday

Ben Lovejoy - Special to NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy can barely contain his enthusiasm for the upcoming 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings (Saturday, 9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC) at Dodger Stadium. In his first edition of the player blog he is doing for NHL.com for the next three days, Lovejoy talks about the history of Dodger Stadium, the uniqueness of playing hockey in Southern California, the rivalry that will be on display Saturday night for the rest of the hockey world to see and a special skate he has planned during Friday's family skate after the Ducks practice.

His second blog entry comes after the Ducks got a chance to practice at Dodger Stadium on Friday:

My first impression arriving at Dodger Stadium was just how cool this all is. We walked out and were able to finally see this iconic building. This is so cool. The rink looks so small in this massive stadium, and everybody is so excited to come out and play a hockey game here. The ice looks so tiny in this cavernous building. The roller rink, the volleyball court, the palm trees in the background, 70-degree weather; everything makes this game unbelievable.

This is a game that has been played in these big-market northern cities; we are going be the first one in a warm climate in Southern California, where hockey is booming and people are truly excited. People are genuinely excited all over North America about this game and we get to play in it.
