Black & Blue & Gold On The Beat
Welcome to the first Black & Blue & Gold On The Beat. I’ll be posting an article from every NHL beat blog besides The Buffalo News’ Sabres Edge. It’s a good way to sneak a peek into the world of each and every other team in the National Hockey League. This entry will just be a post that indexes each blog – if you’re feeling so inclined, go ahead and get to bookmarking.

So there you have it, folks – every beat blog in the league. It’s pretty sad that The Los Angeles TImes can’t commit the staff to doing a Kings beat blog and instead just publish Bleacher Report pieces. Also, I’m sure Newsday’s Islanders readership is way up since installing that paywall.
