Halloween is my favorite time of year. And I love to be scared. Over the years, I've been through my fair share of theme park mazes, independent haunted attractions and backyard spookfests. I even dress up every Halloween as a chainsaw-wielding maniac in a hockey mask and scare the neighborhood kids at the haunted house on our block. So I like to think I've seen it all - from the mundane to the extreme. But I've never experienced anything like McKamey Manor . > Photos: Inside the McKamey Manor backyard haunt in San Diego On Friday night I went through the backyard haunt tucked behind the three-bedroom, brick-and-stucco home of Russ and Carol McKamey in an otherwise ordinary San Diego subdivision near Poway.

Surely, members of New York City's police and fire departments had the best of intentions when they agreed to take part in a charity hockey game on Sunday. But that goodwill fell to the wayside late in the second period of the annual event at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island, as a massive, bench-clearing brawl erupted between the two teams. “It was reminiscent of the old-time Rangers-Flyers games in the mid-'70s,” an NYPD cop who was on hand told the New York Post.

Trade Gretzky. That's what the Kings must do if they ever expect to become a respectable hockey club, or any other kind of club. Trade him now, before lunch, before it dawns on the rest of the league what a fraud he is. Wayne Gretzky calls himself a hockey player? How many times during the playoffs did he sucker-punch an opponent? Did he even once slash, trip, high-stick or cross-check--i.e: execute the fundamentals? He probably doesn't even jaywalk. Wasn't it Gretzky who was supposed to bring this city not only the Stanley Cup, but also the Stanley Saucer?

If only New York had a large, disciplined group of government employees whose job it was to prevent giant fights. Law and order was briefly suspended on the ice at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Sunday when hockey players from the New York Police Department and the Fire Department of New York got into a bench-clearing brawl with one another during a charity game. The combat was well documented on social media by the crowd of fans in attendance, which both howled with boos and roared with delight, adding chants like "Dun-kin' Do-nuts!"

Ever wonder how Staples Center switches from a Lakers basketball court to a Kings hockey rink? If so, wonder no more. You can see it all happen in the above time-lapse video shot by Jason Neubert. Some facts: It takes two to three hours for the conversion to take place. Ever wonder why it's always so cold in Staples Center during Lakers games? As you can see from the video, the basketball court is removed one panel at a time, exposing the ice, which is already in place beneath the court.

Herb Brooks, who orchestrated the gold medal victory by the U.S. hockey team in the 1980 Winter Olympics, accepted the job of coaching the New Jersey Devils' top minor league farm team in Utica, N.Y.

VANCOUVER, Canada - All the years of near misses, tedious bus rides and one excruciating waiting game faded away on Saturday morning for Andrew Campbell. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter summoned the 26-year-old defenseman and told him that he would be making his NHL debut, against the Vancouver Canucks. Televised on "Hockey Night in Canada," no less. "I got like a shiver right down my body, 'Wow, This is going to be the night,'" Campbell said after the morning skate. Arguably, this was the most important conversation of Campbell's hockey life.

Canadian star goalkeeper Shannon Szabados made her debut in a men's professional hockey league when she made 27 saves for the Columbus Cottonmouths in a 4-3 loss to the visiting Knoxville Ice Bears in a Southern Professional Hockey League game Saturday night. Szabados had not played in a game since helping Canada win the gold medal in women's ice hockey at the Sochi Olympics last month, although she did participate in an Edmonton Oilers practice when the NHL team was in need of an extra goalie.

CALGARY, Canada - The Saddledome, along with its ever-changing corporate names, was almost like a second home for goalie Martin Jones in his formative hockey years. His junior team, the Calgary Hitmen, shared the building with the NHL's Calgary Flames, and back in those days, Darryl Sutter happened to be the Flames' general manager. On Monday, Jones and Sutter returned to beat the Flames as the Kings won their eighth straight game, surviving a late scare when Calgary scored twice in the last 4 minutes 31 seconds.

Not that he would let it show, but Kings Coach Darryl Sutter was quietly amused on the bench last week in Colorado. He was trying to carefully manage minutes in the Kings' first game after the Olympic break, particularly in the case of defenseman Drew Doughty and forward Jeff Carter . Doughty and Carter, both of Team Canada, had been on the winning side in the gold-medal game against Sweden on the final day of the Olympics. Who knows? Their body clocks were probably still somewhere over Nova Scotia by the time they took the ice against the Avalanche.

In Russia, Teemu Selanne was hockey's hero. In Anaheim, will he be more than just another player on the NHL team with the most points? Selanne returned to Honda Center ice for practice Thursday, showing more bounce in his skating than when the 43-year-old departed for the Winter Olympics with just seven goals in 47 NHL games. Selanne was the most valuable player of the Olympic hockey tournament in Russia after leading Finland to the bronze medal - and a victory over Team USA - with four goals and six points in six Sochi games.

SOCHI, Russia - Team Canada's journey to its second straight Olympic hockey title began six months ago not with intense strategizing, but with a game of ball hockey. Seeking a way to get players to bond when insurance costs prevented them from skating at an Olympic orientation camp, Coach Mike Babcock told them to wear sneakers and improvise a game on land. It seemed silly at the time but it was the memory Ryan Getzlaf invoked Sunday as Canada prepared for the third period of its gold-medal game against Sweden at the Bolshoy Ice Dome.

SOCHI, Russia - Sidney Crosby again proved that he's a big-time, big-game scorer. Crosby, held without a goal in Canada's first five games at the Sochi Olympics hockey tournament, scored on a breakaway in the second period of Sunday's gold medal game against Sweden to cement Canada's 3-0 victory at the Bolshoy Ice dome and clinch its second consecutive Olympic title. Crosby scored the “golden goal” at Vancouver in 2010, scoring in overtime against the U.S. This time, Canada didn't need to go to sudden-death play to become the first repeat men's Olympic champion since the old Soviet Union teams won in 1984 and 1988.

SOCHI, Russia - Teemu Selanne continued to rack up honors after he and his Finnish teammates won bronze medals at the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament. Selanne, who scored two goals Saturday to lead Finland past the U.S., 5-0, in the semifinals and earn his fourth Olympic medal in his sixth and final Games, was voted the most valuable player of the  tournament. He also was voted to the all-star team by the media. The Ducks right wing, 43, had four goals and six points in six games to increase his career Olympic scoring record to 43 points.
