IT’S ONLY ONE GAME!
No it’s not.
I’ve just made my summer vacation plans as I don’t have to worry about the Kings playing in June.
It wasn’t just that the Kings got beat. I expect that. Especially in San Jose. But to lose like Joaquin Andujar in Game 7 circa 1985? (Remember THAT game?)
Not a chance.
I can’t remember which Kings blogger pointed out just before the Kings acquired Robyn Regehr that he was simply the worst in the world when it came to his team being on the ice when goals were scored. The dude was not only a pylon last night, he was a cement divider and a pothole.
You really think he’s going to IMPROVE?
He’s no Rob Scuderi.
Say what you want about how lazy and horrible Pancakes was (and he was horrible) during the regular season, in the playoffs he was a beast and Tyler Toffoli is the beauty. He’s like that guy in your rec league that you know you can just pound and he’ll fold like a Ford Pinto.
It’s not just “one game.”
You think these Kings are going to beat Boston? Detroit? Chicago? They’re HEALTHY and gave up 5 goals (and an empty netter)
I thought these Kings were “built for the playoffs?” – I mean they kind of sucked most of the year, they couldn’t score, they went on an 8 game losing streak, they had the 27th ranked pp, but we all held out hope because, “they were built for the playoffs.”
More like built like a GM that blows up. .
So please don’t tell me it’s only “one game.”
The Sharks know this is their last shot. Thornton and Marleau and Boyle aren’t going to remain healthy through another grueling 82 game season. This is it for them, they know it, and they’re playing like it. With Wingels and Brown and Torres, they can finally match up with the gritty Kings and the Blues and the Blackhawks.
It’s just like when the Kings played the Blackhawks last season after physical tilts with the Sharks and Blues. They just didn’t have anything left.
It wasn’t “one game” at all.
And don’t talk to me about this idiotic “bandwagon” shit. I’ve been a season ticket holder before many of you were born. I’ve paid my dues (and probably close to $250,000 over the past 25+ years), and there were only 3000 season ticket holders during the Ray Ferraro years, so don’t talk to me about “bandwagon” ’cause unless you’re one of those 3000, we’re ALL on the bandwagon. And truth be told, you can get plenty of tickets to the playoffs at any time, so nobody is really JUMPING on the bandwagon you people so love to mention.
My God, Brian Heyward is suck a fucking annoying tool
“(Referee) Brad Wason has made every single call against the Ducks tonight. Every Single call.”
Well Watson was standing right there and didn’t make the call when Sergei Gonchar’s stick was splintered in two by an Andrew Cogliano slash just seconds before Cogliano scored the game winner because Gonchar didn’t HAVE A STICK!
Detroit looked good, the Stars looked like they shouldn’t have belonged in the first place and Minnesota, well, they’re done. I hope the triple overtime took a lot out of Chicago as I would very much like them to disappear like a Malaysian airliner.
Okay, so last night when writing my blog for Puckrant, I cut and pasted several paragraphs from a great article from Jonathan Willis. As I always do here, I copied the link to the article and dropped it into the Puckrant website (just like I did above, only on Puckrant you can’t just click a LINK button there like you can here) . Because Cloutier’s new website sucks, the link wasn’t posted as I was in a rush to get out the blog and didn’t proof. Willis sent a message via Twitter and I went back and edited the article and gave him proper credit. Of course, by that time (20 minutes?) everyone was saying I stole his article. Most of you know I can be an annoying asshole, but a thief, I am not. I even publicly apologized to Willis for the misunderstanding. Needless to say, I left Puckrant (as their 4th most read blogger mind you) so you’ll just have to suffer with me here.
