Yo Gabba Gabby!
No Mitchell. No Regehr. No Problem!
During the game I was saying Gaborik was softer than Charmin but scorers just have a way of scoring. That earthquake you felt coming from Orange County was Kings fans jumping up and down with joy with 7 seconds left in the game. That aftershock you felt was Gabby scoring the game winner in OT.
I asked my wife to pinch me hard, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. She used a pair of pliers. I’m not dreaming.
This is why Sutter > Boudreau. In OT he pulled Brown and inserted Carter to play with Kopitar/Gaborik and Carters forecheck was great on the game winner.
With Regehr gone (hip injury I’m told) the Kings had to rely on “The Jinx” as the veteran shutdown-defenseman. On Selanne’s goal he was not in good “veteran” position. Okay, okay, I want to blame everything on “The Jinx” because who else am I gonna blame it on? Giving credit where credit is due, “The Jinx” was on the ice for the game winner.
Alec “Don’t call me Alex you stupid idiot Roenick” Martinez also had an excellent game. Scoring a goal, saving a goal, raping Corey Perry (who liked it), big hits.
The Kings didn’t play their best game. Hell, they didn’t even play a good game. The Ducks had a good game plan tonight and I have no doubt that Bitter Beer Face will look at the footage, make his adjustments and come out with an even better defensive effort.
That Schultz guy is gonna earn every cent of the 700K the Kings paid him in the next 4-5-6 games.
Why is it the Kings always go into coma mode, especially in the 2nd period. This is the PLAYOFFS for God Sakes. 17 minutes without a shot? I did 17 shots in the time it took the Kings to finally GET a shot! You can’t win a game if you don’t shoot the puck… why am I typing cliche’s?
Does anyone voluntarily wear orange? When you shop for clothes, do you look at an orange shirt or orange pair of pants and say, “I want that!” The Honda Center looked like all of Orange County lost a bet. At least they’re giving THEIR fans T-Shirts. 3 years in a row we get cum rags.
If you had the choice between having to listen to Brian Heyward the rest of your life or taking a drill and shoving it through your skull, I think you would take the latter. He’s as insufferable as a Republican Ducks fan.
The Kings had 20 blocked shots after having only no more than 10 per game vs San Jose. Ducks were credited with 54 hits. This is just like last season when the Kings and Sharks and the Kings and Blues beat the shit out of each other.
Kopitar only had ONE shot… but THREE assists.
How the hell was Voynov -2?
Where the hell is Helene “Throw Mama From the Train” Elliott? Where’s Lisa Dillman? The Kings get a writeup from Lance Pugmire?
The Kings continue to make HISTORY. Following their historical comeback against the San Jose Sharts, Gabby becomes the 1st player on NHL playoff history Gaborik to score in the final 10 seconds of regulation, then get the winner in overtime according to the L.A. Times. 10 seconds? People keep these kind of dumb ass stats?
