It All Comes Down to Tonight!
Minnesota sure fucked up tonight, didn’t they? How WONDERFUL would it be for them to miss the playoffs after spending 190 million bucks on 2 players!
Niklas Backstrom was 17-0 against the Oilers at home, and the Wild was 19-1-0 in Edmonton’s past 20 visits.
My first thought watching that game was, “If the Kings lost to these guys 2-1 and they’re getting beat by a team who checked out longer than Elvis Presley, we’re fucked in the playoffs” and thankfully a 2nd thought entered my brain; “Maybe the Kings just beat the fucking shit out of this team and they had absolutely nothing for Edmonton.”
I still don’t think the Kings have the passion and drive they did last summer, but they certainly have the experience.
I prefer St Louis to Vancouver only because St Louis doesn’t score a whole helluva lot (well, just 4 less than the Kings). San Jose and the Kings will be beating the shit out of each other. Vancouver has better players this year than they did last year and a healthy sister, and the Canucks revenge factor…
Aw fuck it, just go out and win the damn game tonight, give us the jersey’s off your backs, give us some coupons for some shitty sandwiches and lets get these playoffs started.
So at 10:00 today, playoff tickets went on sale. How come at 10:00:01 there were only single seats available?
4:00 – ESPNZone (if we can actually get a table) – I’ll be wearing my Guelf Doughty jersey – come say hi – I should be good and loaded tomorrow!
