Game 7, Baby!
I can’t remember the last time the Kings played a Game 7 (2002 is the answer)
Hell, I’m 50, I can’t remember anything these days.
I gotta say, the Kings held their own there for a while. They came close to killing that 5 on 3 and if THAT happens, we’re making plans to face Detroit or Chicago.
But since that didn’t happen…
The Kings inability to win a fucking faceoff infuriates me. I don’t know how Lombardi addresses this in the off season.
The Kings power play looked awesome and if it weren’t the sound of clanging THREE TIMES we would be drunk with happiness.
Which is why I’m not worried about Tuesday.
San Jose will push back, but Matt Greene will be pounding Sharks like a Thai whore.
The Kings power play will score, it’s been that good.
The Sharks defense is banged up. Hell, their whole TEAM is banged up. Did you see how many shots they took?
The only thing that does bother me is Darryl had an extra day of practice and they only scored one goal.
That 3rd period was abysmal as well.
So, what’ll happen Tuesday is the Kings will have a 2 goal lead heading into the 3rd. The Sharks will score early in the 3rd and Kings fans will have to sweat out the rest of game.
