Bite The Big Apple, Don’t Mind The Maggots
The Kings had a 5 hour plane ride to figure out how to stop turning the puck over. Here’s my solution. Stop turning the puck over. This is a team that won the Jennings trophy and in the last 5 games have given up 18 goals. That’s about as bad as a Spike Lee movie.
Let’s not get too cocky here – The Kings have been sloppier than Woody Allen having sex with his adopted daughter (just for you JTreehorn). They won their first two games vs Anaheim, then dropped the next THREE and had MUST WIN GAMES the next two in order to advance. They also had a 3-1 series lead vs Chicago and had to go to a Game 7 in order to get here. This shit is FAR from over.
Then again, during the regular season the Kings were 26th in the league in scoring. In the last 8 games they’ve scored 35 goals. In the regular season it took the Kings 18 games to score 35 goals.
And here comes Derek Stepan running into Quick “accidentally” in 5…4…3…2…1
Henrik Lundqvist’s post game interview: “Waaa, Waaa, Waaa, Waaa, Waaa, Waaa” – I love how he bitches about being interfered with then acts like he was shot like Sgt. Elias in “Platoon” when Carter breezed him – No academy award for YOU, Mr. Lund-flop.
WOW: In 23 Post-Season Games, the Kings have scored less than 3 goals only FIVE times
En Fuego: Dustin Brown has 3 goals and 4 assists in his last 6 games. In the 17 prior playoff games, he had 2 goals and 4 assists.
Conn Smythe? It ain’t Quick. Kopitar had 5 goals and 14 assists through 2 series but has gone semi-cold with 0 goals and 6 assists during the Chicago and Rangers series’. Justin Williams had THREE assists last night and has been the model of consistency with 8 goals and 15 assists.
