Two Words: Kari Lehtonen
This game was like you and your friends at a lesbian convention. Nobody could score.
Kari Lehtonen was like a Dyson vacuum. He was like velcro. He was like your wife when you bring your paycheck home.
The Kings had outshot Dallas 18-6 and Jon Quick had spiders spinning cobwebs all over him until late in the 2nd when the 5 hour energy drink kicked in and Dallas started giving Quick a much needed workout.
But Dallas lost a heartbreaker last night. The Kings are #1 in the league in 3rd period point differential.
So of course, what did you expect would happen?
Dallas has that senior citizen Jaromir Jagr, who had 32 goals when Tyler Toffoli was still swimming around in his father’s balls.
Even with a late power play the Kings couldn’t do shit against Kari.
With a 1:00 game coming up, which the Kings NEVER win, and a 5 game road trip to follow…
The Kings have now gone 24 straight games without going into overtime – anyone think a bunch of them are going to start coming up soon?
Kings were shutout at home for the 1st time this season. Glad I wasn’t there.
18 games left. When are the Ducks fragile defenders gonna get hurt?
Less than 2 weeks before the trade deadline. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say Iginla does NOT become a King. (see, last time I said “Carter will NOT become a King,” he was traded to the Kings).
I don’t miss Eddie Munster…er… Rich Hammond at all, but what the fuck new guy? What’s the deal with WILLIE MITCHELL?
Oh, and FYI, Loktionov scored again tonight.
