Tripping Andy

During Monday nights 4-3 overtime victory against the Colorado Avalanche… the Los Angeles Kings did something I haven’t seen them do all season… mess with a goaltender’s head.



Maybe Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar were truly trying to get Craig Anderson off his game late in the 3rd period of an important Western Conference playoff battle. But I think they were just rubbing it in that Anderson didn’t make the US Olympic team… and Jon Quick did.

In a few hours, the Los Angeles Kings battle the Colorado Avalanche in the 2nd game of a home and home series. In the now immortal words that are sweeping the nation


“Hey guys… this game tonight.. it’s a big fucking deal. 
So that’s why I’m sitting you out, Clune.”
