TRH Gameday: Are You High… Altitude?

Pre-season Game #5

LA Kings vs Colorado Avalanche
6pm, Pepsi Center
Denver, Colorado




One of my favorite games to play in the pre-season is “What the Hell Line is That?” Luckily, thanks to Coach Murray’s constant tweaking… this is a game most Los Angeles Kings fans also get to play during the regular season. So imagine how excited I was when I got my latest issue of Rich Hammond’s Kings Insider delivered to my doorstep (what, you guys don’t get home delivery?) and it showed me the 3rd line for tonight’s pre-season game in Denver.


So you’ve got former 1st line Left Winger, Dwight King…

“Hey Jeff Halpern!! You once played 1st Line Wing for the Kings too!! Weird!”

5’8″ sparkplug center, Justin Azevedo…

“Hey Justin, there’s only room on this team for one player with a spanish last name.”

“Umm. I’m Portuguese.”

“Same thing.”

And at Left Wing, Ethan Moreau…

The last time Ethan Moreau scored an NHL goal.

Actually, I’m kinda glad this game isn’t being streamed on the internets tonight…. because the 2nd line is Brad Richardson, Trevor Lewis and Trent Hunter.
