LA Kings @ Vancouver Canucks Game 2- Preview

We are proud as a collective, rallying in the high decree that our hometown crusade crossed international borders and stole British Columbia’s excitement away in Game 1. Not only is this first round playoff a battle on the ice, but the LA Kings speak to the attrition of their northern foe on the internet front as well.

The first few shots have been fired and war has been waged. As our Black and Silver sharpen their blades and bandage the bruises from 44 seasons of purple and black stained to their skin, the time is now.

Game 2:

Intensity comes without saying, but the LA Kings must find discipline in game 2. The dive from Ryan Kesler is only the beginning of childish displays of unnerved anxiety surrendered by the 2011-12 Vancouver Canucks. The series is far from over.  The LA Kings need to continue their physical play like this gem from Mike Richards who really put the “burr” in Alexander Burrows as he reacquainted him with his friend- ice.

Roberto Luongo.

His face just screams, “punch me, please.” The fans aren’t shouting, “louuuu” in adoration but, “LEWD” for his greasy hair and arrogant attitude that pump up expectations annually only to have their hearts ripped out during the postseason. Sure the Canucks get far but the end result is the same. As a Kings fan, like my high school days, I keep expectations low. If we keep generating shots on him, his doughy interior will manifest itself.

The Sedin.

Yes, just one is there. Did you notice? Which one is it?

 

The Kings.

Thank you for showing up in Game 1. You have so much vet leadership an experience in the top 3 lines and hopefully the rest will follow suit. The Colonel (Kyle Clifford) is sidelined in Game 2 but will we request the speed of Andrei Loktionov or the Ivy League savvy found in Kevin Westgarth’s fists? Either way this is a call to arms. Win this series and believe that your fan base did not waver in a questionable season. The TIME IS NOW.
