It was a hard fought game for the LA Kings but not much went their way as they succumb to a 4-2 decision at the Stape tonight.
If there is one thing to say, at least there was intensity. On the “boob tube,” Bob Miller and Jim Fox highly touted the virile veracity of the Kings performance through 60 minutes, but hard hits don’t translate to hard sought goals. It’s not a matter in my eyes that the Kings weren’t good enough to win in this game; they just weren’t lucky. I was ready to “boo the Drew” [Doughty] right out of the game but his set up to Colin Fraser, silenced my frustrations.
Rob Scuderi. Thank you very much for being such a warrior out there. He had a stellar game shutting down scoring chances. As a matter of fact, the Defense was on it tonight for intensity points. It’s turnovers and over-skates that tilted the match. Oh yes, and let’s not forget Jonathan Quick took a page out of attending NBA superstar, Andrew Bynum’s book for being week in the knees and soft on the game deciding goal.
42 shots on goal.
So close in the dying minutes.
Proud of their performance.
I am keeping this brief. The two points were out there but, hey, you can’t win them all.
Wish we did… now on to Vancouver… shut the “Nuck up.”
