Were You Impressed?
I sure as hell was.
Chicago had 4.5 days to rest, heal, work on shit while the Kings couldn’t sleep, hopped on a plane, played bend-but-not-break for 10 minutes and if not for a Tyler Toffoli hitting the post, they may still be playing.
This is the best Chicago has to offer?
These Kings aren’t banged up like they were last season after their wars with the Blues and Sharks.
Tonight, they were just tired and it wouldn’t surprise me if the Kings put a Rangers vs the Habs whooping on them with rest, practice, and Willie Mitchell back in the lineup.
Sure, they were tired in the 3rd and Chicago shut ‘em down, but the way they kept coming… these are the Kings we know. This is a championship team.
Now watch, they’ll go out and get swept.
I didn’t expect to win, but I didn’t expect the Kings to play this well either.
