Kings Make Me Happy!
Usually when the Kings come of a long east coast road trip, they suck like a secretary trying to keep her job. But despite the Kings in the penalty box for 10 of the first 40 minutes, their forecheck was one of the best of the year and with a clean 3rd period, they were tired of playing with the mouse, and ate it.
Jake Muzzin, inserted into the lineup when Alec Martinez took a dumbass penalty in overtime vs Nashville made the most of his time with two assists. Justin Williams was the benefactor with both goals.
The Stars had more turnovers than a Bangkok massage parlor but the Kings couldn’t capitalize early.
Williams finally took the Kings on his shoulders in the third and Drew Doughty said “thank you for keeping the Kings fans off my back for a while” with his 2nd goal of the season and game winner.
Another 50 hits for the Kings and Stoll in the FO circle with 3 straight with Ellis pulled was MONEY!
As long as Kopitar has 2-3 assists a game, I’m okay with paying him 7 million dollars for 0 goals and 100 assists.
Carcillo finally had his first fight. He got punched in the face.
The Kings had 2 more breakways and couldn’t convert. Now 0-3 their last 3 which is fine. It evens out in the end. Next up, a penalty shot.
I don’t want to say it. Don’t make me say it. Okay, you forced me to… Regehr had his best game as a King this year.
9 games and no goals for the centers – This is gonna be as much fun as splitting two aces when the dealer has a 7 when they DO start scoring.
Julie Stewart-Binks > Heidi Androl but what the fuck was up with all the “girl talk” with Alex Curry? Holy shit, I had to go change my tampon.
