Mother's Day Edition - Off The Post

by Deborah Lew / Los Angeles Kings

*Editor’s Note: Throughout the season, staff writer Deborah Lew will boldly seek to satisfy the burning curiosity of fans by using current events and thought-provoking creativity to get a comprehensive off-the-ice look at the boys who’ve captured our hearts and our attention span 82+ nights every year. Each edition will feature two questions: 1) The “Shot,” which will relate to the player giving the answer; and 2) The “Pass,” which will ask the player to name a teammate. Keep checking back for new exciting editions of “Off the Post!”

No matter how old they get, how far from home they live, or how deeply they’re playing in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, boys will be boys…and boys love their moms.

The LA Kings will be in Phoenix for Mother’s Day this year, as Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals begins in Glendale at arena, the home of the Phoenix Coyotes where, to make shopping easy, the Kings will surely try to gift their moms a nice win.
