Just One Of Those Games
Foy you guys, you know when you go on a sex binge, plowing through everything you can find, you shoot and shoot and shoot but you just aren’t satisfied? That was the Kings tonight.
This morning I asked which team would show up? The focused team that had 2 whole days off, following a Phoenix game in which they ALSO had two days off, or the team that went out and partied on a Saturday night?
The Oilers had to have been pooped, playing yesterday in Phoenix then getting on a flight, and they showed it, not being able to break through the Kings stingy defense. Meanwhile, the Kings were peppering the Oilers newest garage door in Bachman Turner Overdrive. Most shots were softer than a Gelsons cream puff, but at least they were shooting the puck.
Of course, Jake fucking Muzzin takes ANOTHER God Awful penalty – hasn’t Martinez been benched because of these bonehead plays? – and of course Nail puts in a rebound for his first of the year? First? How many rookies have more than him? More later.
The Kings couldn’t generate shit on the Jamie Kompon run power play. Especially in overtime, where teams like the Red Wings KNOW how to get it done!… wait…. what…..? It’s Davis Payne? Fire him, too!!! That was just horrible!
Glad to see Mike Richards keeping the scoring going.
This is why the NHL needs replay. When a player is pushed into the goaltender (Frattin) and a goal is taken away, it’s bullshit and should be subject to review. But that’s just me being a homer.
Matt Frattin has shown me these last 2 games what all the fuss is about. The guy forechecks like a mother bumper. He was also credited with more hits than Brown.
How the Kings couldn’t solve a team that was AVERAGING giving up 4 goals a game and had the 29th ranked power play is just chalked up to, “one of those games.” The only difference being, a few years ago, the Kings lose this game. Tonight (going into overtime yet again) they are victorious.
Watching the game, Boyd Gordon won every single fricken face-off (21 out of 31.) Kopitar was 20 out of 33.
Okay, can someone explain Nail Yakupov to me? The guy is invisible! There’s no Matt Duchene moves. There’s no Stamkos. The guy won’t even go into the corner to get a puck!
Is it me or is there something “off” about Quick?
Major props to the Kings director of music who graciously played some Lou Reed in honor of his memory. I’ve been busting his balls here but tonight, I pay my props.
Oiler fans, bloggers and writers are bitching about Kyle Cliffords’ knee-on-knee hit and @BobStauffer is especially pissed off the Kings kept showing it over and over and over and over and over again on the jumbotron during the “Hit of the Game” sequence. 1) When RNH sticks out his knee and Clifford runs into it and NO PENALTY IS CALLED, it’s not a fucking “CHEAP HIT” you assholes.
The Jay Wells tribute before the game was pretty cool – how the hell did a guy that looks that skinny beat the shit out of everyone? As Darryl Sutter said after the game, “He put some knots in my head.”
Vanek for Moulson + a 1st + a 2nd? What the fuck is Garth Snow smoking…? Again! How is Moulson, a free agent PLUS a 1st and a 2nd worth a UFA to be???
There’s a warrant out for Darcy Reiger’s arrest. He not only ROBBED Snow, he raped him, too.
So this “roster move” the Mayor is talking about? Have you ever been at work and you KNOW some poor dude is going to be fired, and its just a matter of time, and then it happens and you’re not surprised. That’s how I felt looking at Colin Fraser tonight. This could have been his last game as a King. He only played 3:25. Yikes.
