That Was Just Delicious
Color me impressed.
On back to back nights where they arrived in L.A. past 1am?
Scoring TWICE on the power play?
In the past 2 games, the Kings had only 2 goals on 90 shots. Tonight they made all 23 shots count and played solid fucking defense!
Well, okay not so much 13 seconds into the game where San Jose scored on their first shot. I wanted to blame Jake Muzzin simply because he was on the ice.
Leave it to the Kings to come back to tie the game minutes later on the hot Drew Doughty’s 4th from a GREAT pass by Williams.
Then San Jose scored again.
Then the Kings tied it again on Stoll’s back-to-back game goals (when has THAT ever happened?)
Then the Kings went into “beat the shit out of them” mode and only had 3 shots in the period. Willie Mitchell failed to clear the puck and Logan Couture scored a beauty of a goal.
And that was it, right? The game? San Jose locks this one up?
The Kings kept coming and coming and coming and low and behold the Sharks did something that’s usually reserved for the Kings. Too Many Men!
Justin Williams goal from a beautiful Anze Kopitar pass tied the game.
And in overtime, Anze Slump…. er…. Kopitar wins it on… a power play!
Okay, how many more fucking penalties are the Kings going to take?
The sharks had 21 hits. The Kings had FORTY SIX!!! Dustin Brown lead the way after reading Helene Elliot’s article this morning.
The Kings needed this one badly.
So happy tonight!
