Of the Kings 47 wins, 13 have come via the shutout (Quick 6 – Jones – 4 Scrivens 3) – They’ll need a few more in the coming weeks… correction… months.
The fact that the Kings have now gone TWO games without taking a penalty is about as rare as having sex with twins… female twins…
The Kings have TWICE made a deadline acquisition that actually MEANT something. Gaborik has been as beautiful as Kate Upton in a wet T-shirt. It makes me want to erase the memory of Anson Carter and Cliff Ronning and even Buchberger and Emerson… unfortunately, I still have a pretty good memory.
Anaheim now leads the conference, one point ahead of the slumbering Blues. So those of you who don’t think Saturday’s game means anything would be about as wrong as a Dewey Defeats Truman headline.
Phoenix is like when you’re in your car and you make a left instead of a right and you keep driving and driving and by the time you realize you should have made a right, you’re in Tennessee.
Things I Could Have Done Instead of Watching The Game After 27 Seconds:
- wash out all the Coke cans before putting them in the recycle bin because the old lady insists that if I don’t, ants will invade our home and secretly cart our daughter off to some nether world.
- overturn the mattress because someone once said you should. All I saw was old pee stains from the last time I overturned the mattress
- eat Chinese food and an hour later eat an entire bag of Ruffles which were on sale at Ralphs for 2 bucks. What kind of world are we living in where Milk is 5 bucks a gallon, bread is 3-4 dollars a loaf but Ruffles and Dorito’s are 2 fricken dollars!
- get the house “earthquake ready” by nailing, gluing, bolting everything to the foundation because when the walls collapse and the chimney falls through the roof at least all the pictures on the wall will remain perfectly intact.
Oh, wait. I actually DID all of these things and didn’t have to bite my nails during this one. Nice to have a “gimme” every once in a while.
32 years ago today…
Kings broadcaster Darryl Evans scored the game winner in the greatest playoff comeback of all time. I was 19 years old and couldn’t have cared less at the time. Little know fact: Before he was offered the job as a broadcaster with the Kings, Darryl was selling Cadillac’s.
The disaster that is Tim Leiweke -
I believe in my heart of hearts that the Kings won the Stanley Cup DESPITE Tim Lie-weekly. The ultimate “spin doctor” could talk you out of your last fart.
In Toronto, his first move was to bring over Jonathan Bernier but forgot to put a Kings-like defense in front of him. They missed the playoffs. Now there’s talk of a) Lieweke bringing in Brendan Shanahan and b) trying to pry Ron Hextall out of Philadelphia to come run the joint. Maybe he can convince Hextall to acquire Alec Martinez for Phil Kessel.
