Come Back Rob Scuderi, Come Back!
Last year, when the Kings had a 3-0 lead, you could bet your cows, your record collection and your mother-in-law the Kings would keep it like my wife keeps my paycheck. Tonight was a perfect example of how much the Kings miss Rob Scuderi.
They played their best game of the season and STILL blew a 3-0 lead.
They scored 2 (3, really) power play goals and STILL found a way to blow like a hooker.
You do NOT give up a 3-0 lead at home. Period. Where you lost only 4 times last season.
I would be happy if Dan Carcillo remained on the 2nd line with Richards and Carter. Anyone else notice the “little things” he did to get them the puck? The blocked shots? The 6 Hits? The drawn penalty? How he kept his cool? I’m sure he’ll do something dumbass in the very near future but tonight, he was awesome.
Jeff Carter scoring goals makes me smile the same way I do when I’ve just gotten laid. And I’m married with kids 10 years so you married guys KNOW that’s not too often.
Dustin Brown looked like Dustin Brown and not Dustin Penner.
Martinez > Muzzin.
Quick’s save in the 3rd against DaCosta was as beautiful as the dream I had about Kate Upton and me.
The 3rd and 4th lines remain questionable. Lewis’ turnover resulted in the first Ottawa goal. Dwight King (who got burned by Joe Corvo on the tying goal… how the fuck do you get burned by Joe Corvo???) still looks like Patrick from Spongebob and I’m still not sure what Dean Lombardi saw in Matt Frattin (who was -1 and an offensive zone penalty while on the pp) who lasted exactly 3 games at Left Wing. If we were going to add another right wing, the Kings should have simply kept Tyler Toffoli and gotten a lot more for Bernier. You don’t trade Bernier for a 3rd line winger.
Slumpitar looked good for the first time this season and actually won face-offs!
They’re still bitching like a Persian woman in a hair salon about how Kings fans gave Quick the Bronx Cheer the other night. Yet none of these talking poo stains mention Darryl Sutter’s quote:
“He dropped his stick. What do you want to talk about – tell him not to drop his stick? It’s his job to stop the puck. So obviously, he didn’t think he needed a stick.”
Watching the Blues and Chicago tonight… the Kings don’t stand a chance against either of them.
Glenn Healy story from XM today – when talking about how James Neal hurt himself playing WHIFFLE BALL Glenn told the story of buying a set of old BagPipes. Just before training camp, he was trying to remove the glued bag with a knife. The knife slipped and went into his hand. No big deal. But did he stop? No, he went and got a pair of SCISSORS, and THOSE slipped and cut his hand to the tune of 35 stitches.
I don’t quite understand the DosXX logo of “stay thirsty, my friend” – I mean, when I’m thirsty, I want to drink. Water, juice, soap suds. Why does one want to STAY thirsty?
