Dustin Brown rides seven-game point streak

Remember when the Los Angeles Kings were reportedly considering trading Dustin Brown? Sometimes the best move is the one you don’t make.

Brown is a physical presence and the captain of the Kings, but lately he’s also been one of their best players offensively. He’s on a seven-game point streak and 13 points in his last nine contests going into Sunday’s match against Chicago. Brown is still on pace to finish the season a step below the numbers he put up from 2007-08 to 2010-11, but after going cold in November and December this season, he’s making up for lost time.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter thinks that Brown’s success has come because he’s been playing a North-South game.

“Brown’s been really solid,” Sutter said. “He’s got to play a straight-line game. If you see him going East to West on the ice, you’ll know he’s not on his game.”

The question now is if Brown and the Kings snap their two-game losing streak and so that their recent slump doesn’t cause serious damage to their chances of making the playoffs.

    “Sometimes the best move is the one you don’t make.” Ah, if only I’d known this BEFORE I started fantasy hockey…

    THAT’S BETTER !

    What a marvelous turn of events tonight, eh ? Just when it looked like our late season surge had ground to a halt, the juggernaut which is our LA Kings starts rolling again ! You gotta love that ! Anyway, it’s important now that we close rank and press home the attack with even greater zeal. We’re back home on Tuesday night for another tilt against the Red Wings … come on you guys, let’s seriously give it to them !

      As a decent and “values-driven” Kings fan , I’m precluded from striking back at you in kind .. allow me to therefore offer you this excellent number by Elvis, which encapsulates my feelings towards your venom …

    Well……. easy to get bundists to like hockey. How does one get La raza or the rising sun to like hockey? Saving the answer for the Coyotes and for the Nhlpa…..
