Scream Therapy


I wish there was some way to visually represent how frustrated Drew Doughty has been with his own play this season as a member of the Los Angeles Kings.

Hmm, I don’t know. Maybe you can do better?

Once again, Drew just needs Jack Johnson to do most of the work for him.

Kings 3, Oilers 1

So even though the boys in Toronto tried to make up for blowing several Ryan Smyth calls this season, it turns out that Drew Doughty had 2 goals last night against the Edmonton Oilers. And now, since the Kings beat the 2nd worst team in the NHL… are us Kings fans to all of sudden believe that the playoffs are a lock? Not with the next 6 games coming up…

Yes, that is the Calgary Flames next game.
The team that was ready for a firesale in November is now 2 points behind the Kings.

And besides, can you really get excited about beating a team that has this kid as their lone goal scorer?


I guess I shouldn’t be so quick to judge the fact that Magnus Paajarvi looks like McLovin… when the Kings 5th leading scorer looks like he just left band practice with Vampire Weekend.

Either he’s in Vampire Weekend, or it’s 8th grade photo day.

Umm.. was year round BBQ something that wasn’t available till recently in Edmonton?
Oh, Canada. I don’t know how to quit you.

On second thought, maybe they should be more concerned with what they feed Canadians year round.

So it’s a big, important win for the Los Angeles Kings (against the 2nd worst team in the league) as they battle to make the playoffs. And now, thanks to Jack Johnson and Drew Doughty, the team has it’s scoring issue fixed, right? RIGHT?!?

Hey, Anze… maybe you should score those goals when it counts, huh?

Calgary on Saturday. That’s a big one. And let’s take a look at The Royal Half Playoff Tracker 3000!!! Leaderboard:

As always, check out the creepy JeanShorts and BaggedMilk for all news Edmonton-y. And check out this awesome photographer’s flash from last nights game for an even creepier Jack Johnson.

There is no way he’s NOT on steroids, right?
