Deja Vu Sucks
I could have sworn I saw the same game just two nights ago against the Devils.
Ben Scrivens finally had some competition as he faced the Jim Jones worshiping…. I mean Patrick Roy worshiping Colorado Avalanche who would test him like a 3 year old who hadn’t had a nap.
The first period was business as usual as the Kings and Av’s played Rip Van Winkle hockey.
It was certainly nice of the Kings to take most of the 2nd period off in front of a Saturday Night sellout crowd. It’s like a bartender deciding he doesn’t want to shake a martini. 10:46 without a shot is not a credit to Patty the wife beater and his defensive “system,” it was all about a team that was as tired as you or me after an all nighter in Vegas. Even the return of Kyle Clifford couldn’t spark the Kings who had a 4 minute power play at the end of the 2nd and the start of the 3rd but were as pathetic as my 8 iron from 110 yards out.
Scrivens looked like the 2nd coming of Jonathan Quick as the Av’s were merciless on THEIR power play’s Scrivens sucked up more shit than a septic tank truck.
Maybe its simply that Scrivens doesn’t want to go into a shootout where last time he looked like a blind Dan Cloutier (wait, is that an oxymoron?).
I can’t tell if Darryl Sutter’s defensive system is choking the Kings, or hindering them from scoring more.
Hey, at least the Kings got another point. But for the 9th time, the Kings had to go extra innings. That’s taxing.
That’s it – I’m in freezing cold Oklahoma. I sneezed and my snot froze before it hit the ground.
