“That Puck Is Not Over The Line”
Uh, yes it was, Jim. (and he was even cool enough to post it, too!)
Okay, where to begin?
Giving up a RARE 1st period goal? – Yup, they did that.
Giving up ANOTHER power play goal? Yup, they did that, too.
Nashville played last night. The Kings were rustier than me at a singles bar after 10 years of marriage.
First 2 game losing streak of the year.
On the bright side, the Kings actually SCORED on the power play for the first time in 6 games. On the bad news side, this means they scored just ONE even strength goal… again.
So last week Darryl Sutter said he would “never” dress 7 defensemen.
Tonight, he dressed 7 defensemen.
Darryl also told the press he needed Drew Doughty to be “better”. He wasn’t. What the hell was he actually DOING on that last goal? What was Scrivens doing? Mike Richards? WTF?
I mean, they couldn’t be any worse than who was scratched, but lets get real here… Mike Richards has to be saying “you’ve got the be kidding me, Coach. You put “The Cooler” on my line?” By “Cooler,” I mean Trevor Lewis who couldn’t BUY a point if he tried. I mean wouldn’t ODDS dictate that there would be an accidental goal, a fluke goal, an EMPTY NET goal that would warrant a point? Nothing! Nada! Zip! Zilch! Come on, already, trade some defense for some scoring Sutter, this guy is a fucking JINX.
Anyone else think Mike Richards needs to be benched a game?
The BEST part of the night was the Rich Clune video bomb while Drew Doughty was being interviewed.
$50.00 off Stadium Series Tickets – what a joke
I’ve been telling you for MONTHS this was going to be a bigger flop than Justin Bieber’s “Believe.” – It’s like going to Target for an After Christmas sale and looking at their 50% off signs and saying, “I wouldn’t even buy it for 50% off” – This just PROVES there are no hockey fans here in L.A. other than us die-hards. Michigan Stadium is TWICE the size of Doyer Stadium and they had no problem selling out. L.A.? NOBODY GIVES A SHIT, especially at the ridiculous prices they were asking.
I have dead center ice seats and I can’t even sell them for 400 bucks each, which is basically 80 bucks more than what I paid for them with all the service fees and charges.
With Dennis Seidenberg gone for at LEAST a year with both torn ACL and MCL (that MAY be a career as well), look for the Bruins to call Lombardi about Andrew Bodnarchuk, who played for Providence for 4 seasons and had a cup of coffee with the big club.
Canada chokes… AGAIN! What? They didn’t dominate the world juniors like they were supposed to? They LOST to the Czech Republic? For the first time since Montreal beat the Kings in the Stanley Cup finals? WHAT? Holy shit! There’s depression everywhere in Canada tonight? Meanwhile, Americans won again.
