“This Team Won a Stanley Cup?”
My son is at that age where he asks a lot of questions. These are some of them during the game:
Q: “Why are there so many Penguins fans at Staples Center?”
A: “Because nobody wants to LIVE in Piss-burgh” (he laughs when I say piss)
Q: “How come the Kings can’t score?”
A: “Because they’re concentrating on scoring OFF the ice rather than on.” (puzzled look from son)
Q: “Can we do something else? This is boring.”
A: “Would you mind pounding nails into my brain?”
I can’t take much more of this shit.
3 goals in 5 games. ALL scored by Kopitar.
That means… Richards has ONE goal in 31 games (granted he’s had Matt “Bigger Bust Than Anson Carter” Frattin and now Trevor “The Cooler” Lewis as his line mates). Maybe he’s just gone and pulled a full on Jonathan Cheechoo. Carter isn’t scoring. Drew “Cough Up The Puck” Doughty is on another planet he’s so bad. Muzzin is about as brutal as Madonna’s new face and Brown is about as unwatchable as a Rob Schneider movie.
When you’re the worst penalized team in the league and you take two simultaneous penalties, WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN?
It’s like being accidentally kicked in the balls when you’re playing with your kids.
The Penguins brought their mom’s with them on the road trip. If we fans know this, then the Kings must have known this and they had little to no answer in the 1st period.
And of course, for the third game in a row, the Kings get no respect as the opposing coach starts their BACK-UP goaltender! This one happened to be yet ANOTHER ex-King (well, Manchester anyway) they thought couldn’t play in the NHL. Hey Mayor! Next time you talk to Futa and Yanetti, ask them who decides Moulson, Purcell, Hickey, Clune, Zatkoff, Scrivens can’t play and should be traded or waived?
I know, I know, they keep complaining they haven’t had any time to practice. Um… they’re PROFESSIONALS. Does a porn star need “practice?”
When you don’t do your job well, you get fired and somebody needs to be fired. The entire 3rd and 4th lines need to be fired IMO. The power play coach needs to be fired (maybe he should just watch video of Pittsburgh’s power play. They seem like they actually know what they’re doing).
I guess I shouldn’t complain. The Kings actually DID score on a power play.
If the Kings are “tired” now, how are they going to be down the playoff stretch when they venture BACK to the east to play the Flyers, Washington and Pittsburgh in 4 nights, THEN come home and 5 games in 7 nights?
I guess playing the Ducks in the 1st round looks to be the Kings destiny.
LW Tomas Fleishmann was a healthy scratch in Florida’s game tonight. Is it because he’s lazy and can’t score? Then Lombardi should trade for him as he’d fit right in.
Tomorrow’s headline: Cammalleri traded to the Kings. It would be weird, but much needed.
