God Helps Kings End Losing Streak
Jonathan Quick was on his way for a tune-up assignment in Manchester but because of the brutal storm the man upstairs created in the East, Quick couldn’t get a flight from St Louis to Massachusetts.
Instead he started against the Canucks and his return was about as welcome as a horny nymphomaniac.
Unfortunately for the Kings, Roberto Luongo was coming back from HIS injury as well and every puck seemed to hit him squarely in the chest.
The Kings finally had the same emotion they had when Scrivens then Jones had during Quicks’ early absence.
But the PK unit have given away power play goals the way perverts give out candy at a school yard.
Luckily for the Kings, “The Jinx” was not in the lineup (you don’t think Sutter reads my BLOGS and Twitter, do you? Or are we both just incredibly intelligent?) and Martinez looks like he should stay in the lineup for the rest of the season… until he does something stupid to wind up in Sutters’ doghouse again.
I’ve been feeling much better from this shitty flu so much so I actually caught the game in person. Dustin Brown looked like he lost about 10 pounds and that made him a little bit faster. The only time Dustin Brown has scored lately was by making babies, but tonight will hopefully be the first in a long string of goals.
I would have been happy going into overtime and getting the point the way the Kings had been playing lately, but Dwight King out hustled and outmuscled Jason (-3) Garrison and Jeff Carter’s quick wrists did the rest.
Jonathan Quick looked like he saved several that Scrivens and Jones wouldn’t have been able to stop and it was nice to see him rewarded for a great comeback effort.
35 shots through 3, 49 for the game. It was a wonderful shooting gallery.
You know what I did notice? GOOD MUSIC. When did they finally get rid of the metal and mix it up with current, 90’s and 80’s? Kudo’s… finally!
A shout out to VtechJunkie who stopped by to say hello and to the other whose name I forget. Thanks for reading, and for saying hello.
CARCILLO TRADED FOR A DRAFT PICK THAT LOMBARDI WILL USE TO BUY A ROLL OF TOILET PAPER
“Trading a 7th rounder for Dan Carcillo is like peeing into your own butt.” – @yyjordan
Dan Carcillo, who was traded to the Kings from Chicago for a conditional 6th round pick has been traded to the Rangers for a conditional 7th round pick.
Carcillo has played in 26 games for the Kings. Had he played 40, the Kings would have owed Chicago a 5th round pick.
This leaves a roster spot open for Linden Vey or Tanner Pearson to be called up, although Lombardi might not be finished dealing yet as he’s looking for a scoring winger.
A source of mine says there’s a rift between Mike Richards and Darryl Sutter. Not surprising given Richards’ past. Could be another reason for the slump. We never know what goes on behind closed doors. We’re just FANS, remember?
And Canada wins GOLD…. oh…. WHAT? Update: Not even BRONZE??? Blasphemy!!!!
