Long Days Journey Into 6th


Well, it’s finally over. A 10 game, 23 day long road trip all across this great country of ours and our neighbOUr to the north. Let’s take a final look at the Road Trip Tallyboard…

One regulation loss in 10 road games. Not too shabby!

After finishing 6-1-3 during their 10 Game Road Trip from Hell, the Los Angeles Kings have really cleared up some of the logjam in the Western Conference Playoff Race.

Or not.
I haven’t seen this much action in the 70′s since The Wonder Years

But the Los Angeles Kings weren’t the only thing coming into Anaheim on fire… Indiana Matt has been tearing it up. In regards to the dicey goaltending situation for the Ducks, Indiana Matt thought that sensitive would be the most obvious route. 

I feel that Jonas Hiller finally had a mirror installed in his Orange County home and that is the cause of his recent dizziness.

The horror, the horror.

And since he’s a notorious gamer, how could Indiana Matt resist? 

Now, after a tough stretch on the road, the Kings gear up for easy homestand against the Minnesota Wild, Colorado Avalanche, Detroit Red Wings, Vancouver Canucks and the Dallas Stars. That right there are 10 gimme points for the Kings, no problem. Screw first in the Pacific, we are coming for your ass, Vancouver!!! 

Big game Thursday night against the Wild. A win here puts the Kings only 6 points out of 11th place in the West! Damn, we are in a tight spot!

“Hey, Stolly, you know all about tight spots, right. You playa!”

“Guilty as charged!”

“A-ha-ha-ha! What a gigolo!”
