65 Minutes of Excellence!
Now THAT is the Kings I know. The Kings that played a solid fast paced physical game.
The thing that cracks me up at whomever is keeping track of “hits” at Staples Center must give credit every time a pillow feather is touched. 40+ hits apiece at Staples!!! Tonight, Carolina and the Kings banged the crap out of each other and the Hurricanes are credited the entire game with 18 hits? Huh? I saw 18 alone on Drew Doughty!
Both goaltenders were superb. This was the first time all season I saw the Kings play for 60+5 minutes.
Kudos to “Patrick” for the excellent shorthanded goal. Too bad the Kings couldn’t kill the same penalty.
Thank you Jeff Carter. Where the hell would the Kings even BE without this stud? He is singlehandedly carrying this team in scoring.
Slumpitar played well but still can’t register a goal. Dating back to regular season last year, it’s now been TWENTY GAMES since Anze has hit the back of the net. All for 7 million dollars a year. Yes, he’s dominant. Yes, he’s an excellent 2 way player. Yes, he’s certainly going to the net a lot more often… but TWENTY GAMES? Name me a top center in the NHL who goes 20 games without scoring a goal. Counting the playoffs? 3 goals in 38 games. Those are Craig Johnson numbers.
Mike Richards won 12 of 14 in the circle.
Willie Mitchell had SEVEN blocked shots.
Matt Frattin. Only 12 minutes, but credited with 6 hits.
Darryl Sutter coached against his son Brett – Didn’t Darryl one TRADE his son to Carolina. Now THAT must have been weird.
You know what I absolutely LOVE about having my own website? Unlike HockeyBuzz where they allow just about anyone to spew their uneducated trolling bullshit, I have filters. God bless filters. This asshole not only threatens to fight me OUTSIDE of Staples (everyone knows where I am but for 10 years he’s been waiting OUTSIDE. To FIGHT. I mean, who DOES this)
Then he drops this racial epithet:
“For a guy who supposedly makes all this money and knows people, you complain about shit a lot. Then, again, you are a jew and it’s in your DNA.”
Seriously “Tom?” JEW? That’s like dropping the N word.
You do know that when you log on you’re giving me your email and IP address which is part of your agreement when you sign up, right?
What do you think, folks? Should I send this to his boss in electronics manufacturing so he knows exactly how this employee feels about “Jews?”
Maybe I should send his comments to some of the Jewish “people I know” and see how THEY react. What do you think?
Using racial slurs will not only cost you your job, it could land you in jail should you decide to actually “fight” me. Because of…. wait for it…. WORDS!!!!
Once again, Bud Holloway misses out on playing in the NHL… not that the Kings needed any more right wingers… but so far he’s having a shitty year in Sweden recording ZERO goals in 11 games so far. While teammate Oscar Moller has collected 4 goals and 5 assists in 9 games.
Thomas Hickey has done nothing in 3 games with the Islanders.
Meanwhile Colten Teubert has played 3 games for the Iserlohn Roosters, gotten into a fight, and is a -2
Justin Azevedo, who led the Monarchs in scoring in 2011-12 with 28+22 is in the KHL this season and has 3 goals in 9 games.
It won’t shock me at all if Michael (LW) Mersch, currently in his senior year at Wisconsin winds up playing for the Kings at the end of the season. The coaches are very high on him (they were high on Andrew Campbell too, so whatever). Their first game is tonight.
Jeff Zatkoff made his NHL debut tonight, and promptly gave up 5 goals to one of the worst teams in the league.
Shanahan consistent? What’s this world coming to?
