Kings Blow Another 2 Goal Lead to Colorado
The last time these two teams played the Kings blew a 2 goal lead and lost. Tonight, the Kings blew a 2 goal lead, and lost again. Maybe they miss Rob Scuderi after all. Oh, and Willie Mitchell was hurt late in the 3rd.
But last game the Kings were in Colorado where there’s nothing to do but eat snow. Tonight they were STILL in Vegas and judging by the snitch tweets that did NOT adhere to the “What happens in Vegas…” motto, there was a good reason several players looked, um, “tired.”
Mike Richards needs to have a serious bounce-back year because for the nearly 6 million bucks he’s making, he’s like that executive at your office you hate because he makes 4 times as much as you do and he takes 3 hour lunches. Lets hope tonight is the igniter. Lets also hope the Kings power play is as good this season as it has been in the pre-season. I’m still so happy we no longer have Jamie Kompon and his stupid face.
Finally, with a full pre-season camp Darryl Sutter has no excuses. He also needs to be better. Every other team in the west is better. Maybe some wittier one liners, too.
Okay, okay, this Frattin kid looks good. Wait, sorry, he’s just so much better than the useless Penner than a monkey would have looked better. Here’s a pic, you decide.
Jordan Nolan keeps hitting people, keeps drawing penalties and the Kings keep scoring on the power play. Think he could teach Dwight King to have this much passion?
Dear Anze Kopitar: I’m one of those critics. Answer me.
Garon… bye bye. That 2nd period performance was about as good as paying a lot of money to watch a drunk Bob Dylan.
Vey and Pearson didn’t do enough IMO either to warrant staying. Look for them to join Manchester. Don’t know what happens to Toffoli, but I guarantee there will be a lot of pissed off Kings fans.
Speaking of Manchester, what the hell is defenseman Nic Deslauriers doing playing LEFT WING? Who does he think he is, Peter Harrold. What? He scored FOUR TIMES? Well fuck me! That was the same number of goals he scored ALL SEASON last year!
If Kozun isn’t the first call up, I look for him to bolt to anywhere they speak a foreign language.
Former Kings: Brandon Segal signed with the Hershey Bears
Explain something to me: How come NHL.com doesn’t have game stats during the game but ESPN does? WTF?
I miss Kevin Westgarth
HERE COME THE TRADES AND WAIVER WIRE PICKUPS as teams have to get rosters down and their caps in compliance. Some fun SHOCKS in the next 24 hours. (Joe Colbourne has already been traded… for a 4th round pick… ha ha ha, all those Toronto folks who thought he was worth a first!) - Canucks have acquired right wing Zac Dalpe and centre Jeremy Welsh from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Kellan Tochkin and the fourth round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Tonight: SNL. Tomorrow, “Breaking Bad” finale and “Homeland” premiere. Yum!
