Vegas Kind to Kings
Right about now, Kings fans are celebrating tonights victory in Vegas by consuming massive amounts of alcoholic beverages. Meaning, tomorrow morning they won’t remember peeing in the pool, puking in the elevator and losing 6 weeks worth of wages to some Asian dude named Mr. Liu. They’ll also be questioning whether it was a man or woman in their room last night. Aw, hell, you had a good time anyway, didn’t you?
Tonight, the Kings played an exhausted Rangers team playing their 4th game in 5 nights and having flown in from Vancouver late last night. They don’t even get to STAY in Vegas as their charter left back for New York following yet another pre-season loss. And you thought playing in New York was fun! No wonder Avery quit.
Jordan Nolan continued to make an impression and with a big lead, coach monotone gave a lot more ice time to Tanner Pearson and Linden Vey. Both had amble opportunities to increase the Kings lead. Both failed. As good looking as they are, both aren’t ready for the NHL and I’m looking forward to having Nolan, Fraser and Carcillo beat the ever loving shit out of the west.
How many of you were stuck on those long stupid security lines and missed Anze’s goal 15 seconds in? Still glad you paid all that money to be herded like a cow?
Matt Frattin looked better to me tonight and yes, he looks so much better than Dustin “collect a paycheck” Penner. Some nitwit pointed out that Frattin is leading the Kings in scoring this pre-season. Yeah, well, a quick check and David Perron, Max Pacioretti and Jussi Jokinen are your top 3 NHL goal leaders. I’m just not sold on the kid yet like so many others are.
Tomorrow should be interesting as Kings players WILL be in Vegas tonight and they’re young, and they have more money than any of us, and they’re irresponsible.
I have no idea why Ron Hextall left, for those who have been asking.
Drew Doughty was wearing the “A” tonight. It stands for “Angel.”
The Kings have lost only 3 times on Frozen Fury weekend? Is that right? I knew Vegas knows how to fix a fight, but NHL games, too? Impressive.
The Flyers and the Rangers are a combined 2-10-1 this pre-season. And the first coach fired this season is…
Now that Mark Andre Cliche is no longer with Manchester, look for 6th year man Andrew Campbell to be named Captain. Manchester also lost Colton Yellow Horn and David Meckler to Austria and enforcer Justin Johnson signed with Bridgeport to be their human punching bag.
