The 1300th Win is the Toughest
Fear not, my New York Islander faithful… for you have the makings of an exciting team in the future. Do not forget that the Islanders have been to the playoffs 3 more times than the Los Angeles Kings in the last 6 years. All you have to do is look at what the Kings are doing so far in this young season to know that your team has a bright future ahead of them. And as soon as the team is ready to explode into the playoffs… it will be moved to Kansas City or some small town in Canada and you will be shit out of luck.
Half Season Ticket Holder Buddy said it best… “how foreign is it to see a Kings uniform featured in something…anything!?!” He is absolutely right. And how crazy is it to see the Kings ranked as the #3 team in the league? Granted it is only 5 games into the season… but for long suffering Kings fans… we’ll take whatever we can get. What is the only thing cooler than being featured on the ESPN Power Rankings banner heading? Well, this…
What is the only thing cooler than Anze Kopitar tied for the most points in the league? Well, this…
No… I’ll take the puck across the blueline and then score. And Williams will get the 2nd assist.
Let’s just agree to score.
You got it, Smythy.
The Kings are just playing at a great pace. Sure, it would have been awesome to beat the Islanders by a bigger margin… but these aren’t the Islanders of the last few years. They’ve been tough to beat this season, losing all 3 games in overtime or shootout. All of the Kings lines are looking strong and the defense seems to have its game back from last season. And Raitis Ivanans is willing to fight the nastiest of Bond Villans if it means pumping up his team.
But the biggest surprise tonight was the upcoming horror feature from Fox Sports West HD… just in time for Halloween…“The Clock From Hell!”
Ugh, Fox Sports West HD… this is getting so embarrassing. Now you are just begging for people to be friends with you.
