FROM Daryl Evans

For First Time since Gretzky Era, Kings Back in Stanley Cup The Los Angeles Kings were eighth this year in their division of the National Hockey League. But after defeating the Phoenix Coyotes in overtime last night in Arizona, they've now won the division championship and are in the finals for the Stanley Cup. Daryl Evans played for the Kings, the Washington Capitols, and the Toronto Maple Leafs. He's now the Kings' radio commentator on KTLK AM 1150 and for the Kings Radio Network.
Can the Kings Make LA an Ice Hockey Town? LA's reputation for ice hockey is lousy. After all, this is not a place where kids learn to skate on frozen ponds, lakes or rivers frozen over by winter. And the Los Angeles Kings haven't had a respectable season since 1993, in the Wayne Gretzky era. Now that may be changing. The Kings are having a great season. But there's also a lot more hockey being played around here than most people realize, and it's not all about professionals and kids.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
