Darryl Sutter – Genius
Darryl Sutter put Trevor Lewis in the shootout – he was a dumbass
Because the Kings were playing like they were partying in New York City last night, Sutter reunited Manchester’s Pearson-Vey-Toffoli line and take a wild O.J. Simpson stab at what happened?
Between periods, Sutter told the team they might try want to stop hitting the snooze button and wake the fuck up. They responded by turning a 2-0 3rd period deficit into a 3-2 victory. When the hell was the last time THAT happened? When we didn’t know Mars existed?
Voynov got things started, Pearson did in one game what Trevor Lewis has failed to do in 19 and Tyler Toffoli’s tip with just 1:27 left in the game meant Ben Scrivens didn’t have to go through the humiliation of looking like Dan Cloutier in the shootout.
Ben Scrivens: “That’s the biggest thing with this team, this organization, this coaching staff. It’s a meritocracy, for sure.” Okay nerd bomber who never got laid in high school, what the hell is “meritocracy”?
Even Muzzin didn’t take a dumb penalty tonight.
Even the power play scored.
Even the penalty kill didn’t allow a goal.
Scrivens doesn’t quite give me the confidence I had when Bernier was in net, but I’ll just have to like it since Quick’s Grade 2 sprain will keep him out for at least 3 weeks. I know, I know they keep telling us 4-6. Watch. 3 weeks.
Had the Islanders not acted like they had just eaten yellow snow cones, they would be in 8th place tonight instead of 12th – Tonight, they’re sad. What’s they’re record since trading Moulson anyway?
Once again, you gotta come here for your injury information. Lisa Dillman is reporting that Carter is going to miss more time. No duh, I said it was 4 weeks over 8 days ago, folks. Greener’s back is toast and HE won’t be back for a while, Clifford has a concussion and I told LGK Quick would be out a while.
Okay, so now that Lombardi has had 19 games to see his team, it’s likely he STILL won’t make a move (unless its dumping salary)
So what does Sutter do tomorrow?
If the lines are:
King-Richards-Frattin (Carter when he’s back)
(Frattin when Carter’s back) Carcillo-Stoll-Nolan
Where does that leave Fraser, Clifford, Lewis?
Do you care?
The Kids are Alright!
And the Ducks finally lost.
What a great night!
Seems like scouting has finally caught up to Colorado
I’m shocked the league actually gave a Toronto player more than one game!
Think Boston is having 2nd thoughts about that Seguin deal?
I was rooting for Vancouver to beat the Sharks but somehow when the Sharks tied it up late and then won it in overtime, I was so happy Vancouver lost. I hate them and John Tortorella’s smirk.
Today was national clean out your fridge day. There was unidentifiable stuff inside my fridge that had been in there so long, it had grown arms and legs and walked out by itself.
