The Devil Ain’t No Friend of Mine
There was nothing positive about this game. The New Jersey Devils came into Los Angeles and taught the young Kings a thing or two about how a defensive team is able to score. The one consistency about the Kings this year is that they throw 35 or so shots at a top level team and aren’t able to capitalize. Devils goalie Kevin Weekes was definitely channeling 2003 last night as he looked incredible in goal. And the Kings gave the Devils fans a reason to be happy after a couple loses in a row. The Kings should be disappointed about this one. If they are truly going to have a chance at making the playoffs… they are going to need to string together a couple victories in a row. They can’t just win one and lose one. Win one and lose one. Win one… and lose one.
Actually, there was something exciting about last nights game… it was “Robeks Juice Presents Significant Other” night at Staples Center!
Kudos to the Zack Parise fan.
I’ve got Selke Trophy fever!
Rockin’ it Red Army style.
I’m not in the 200’s anymore.
I hadn’t sat up in the 300’s for a Kings game since 2000, when the Half Season Ticket Holder Buddy and I received a Kings 3 game pack as a gift from a co-worker. It was actually a great view. You really do get a sense of the game unfolding left to right and even though you are so high up, you feel like you are right on top of the players. Fun for a period, but I have no intention of leaving my Half Season seats anytime soon.
All in all, it was a great night. Except for the horrible and uninspiring play of the Los Angeles Kings. Jon Quick did the best he could on most of those goals, but the team in front of him just plain didn’t show up. Tomorrow the Kings play an awful Tampa Bay Lightning team… who just happend to beat the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.
