Skings Score!

The best part of Sunday nights last-second-come-from-behind-regulation victory over the Dallas Stars? Bob Miller going bat-shit-crazy.

I think we all know what Jim Fox had to say.

Hey, remember when everyone was ready to fire Coach Murray? Instead, Murray has steadied this team through their rough patch and the Los Angeles Kings are playing some of their best hockey since the start of the year. And here’s reason #463 why I love Coach Murray… his quote about Dallas tying the game with a minute left:

“Screaming and the hollering only makes me feel better. It doesn’t make anybody else feel better. That goes nowhere. That’s going to be, actually, very disruptive. It’s important to stay focused and just go out and finish the game the right way.”

Yeah, because all Kings fans were SUPER worried Coach Murray might show some emotion behind the bench. 

Okay, maybe once.

Kings against the Nashville Predators tonight. They are all big games from here on out. Big games that need to end in regulation wins. With a win tonight, the Kings could be 4th, 1 point behind the Pacific Division leading San Jose Sharks. If the Kings lose, they could be in 7th place. But most importantly, if the Kings win tonight, I’m upgrading the Los Angeles Kings Playoff Threat Level from MURRAY to WEBSTER.

Jon Bernier gets the call tonight to perform his one skill as an NHL goaltender… beating Nashville. 

Your move, Nashville.
