“I’m Concerned With How We’re Playing”
A penalty free game? That’s about as rare as the Detroit Lions playing in the Super Bowl, the Yankees not signing an overhyped free agent pitcher, the Kings winning with Matt Greene in the lineup.
If Darryl Sutter is “concerned” how the hell should I be? I’m always as nervous as a white person breaking down in Compton, but if Darryl’s nervous, I’m as fricken paranoid as Mel Gibson driving drunk down the PCH!
Jonathan Quick was sloppier than a soup sandwich. One nearly trickled in off his glove. I’ve seen better backhands from Chris Brown. A missed poke check on the Monohan goal? Forgetting to hit the snooze alarm on Stajan’s goal?I won’t blame everything on Johnny. The Kings were flatter than a possum crossing the 405.
With the Maple Leafs out of the playoffs, there was no doubt in my mind the pissed off folks in the war room would screw over the Kings again on the Jarret Stoll goal, but they were too drunk and let the goal stand.
During the TV timeout, Kopitar injected a cocktail of speed, Red Bull and Heisenberg’s blue and singlehandedly willed the Kings back into the game.
Dwight King came back from playing with Spongebob to tie the game and send it to a shootout.
I mentioned the Kings were last in the west in games lost in the shootout but after Gabby scored in the 2nd round, all Quick had to do was stop Jiri Hudler. He didn’t and then the Kings lost and nobody really cared expect for Sutter who said “I’m concerned with how we’re playing” and now I won’t be able to sleep all night and my golf game will suck tomorrow.
Please shut up about the “Jennings” trophy. They have a better chance of finding a missing airplane.
It won’t shock me to see Sutter dress 7 Dmen for the Ducks game Saturday as to not push Doughty but give him enough minutes heading into the playoffs.
Isn’t this about the time Kyle Clifford gets his block knocked off and misses playoff games?
What did the Ducks have to play for tonight? The Conference? Okay, so instead of getting Minnesota, they’ll get Phoenix or Dallas? They pulled a full on Rodney King on the Sharks and beat them into a lawsuit. With a rookie goaltender in net. Sharks have lost 4 of 6.
What was even more fun was watching Columbus make the playoffs and keep Dallas from jumping 4 points ahead of Phoenix. How much fun is THAT Dallas/Phoenix finale gonna be Sunday? I’m rooting for Phoenix because with Dave Tippet, you never know.
If Columbus and Detroit were still in the West, one of them would NOT be in the playoffs. I don’t know about you but I’m voting for the Flyers to choke their last 3 games and face either Boston or the Penguins. THAT would be a wonderful brawl-fest!
