TRH RECAP 31: SACRE-BLEUOUT



KINGS 6, CANADIENS 0

Coming off a brief conditioning stint versus the NY Islanders, it was time for the LA Kings to hit the road again for a rather peculiar stretch of their schedule.

After one game in six days, the Kings matchup against the Montreal Canadiens was the first of seven games in 11 days.

NHL schedule makers, everyone!

Regardless, the game against the Canadiens provided the Kings a chance to exorcise some demons improve their absolutely horrendous 8-41-11-0 record in Montreal.

Call me an optimist, but I’m on board with this guy.

Montreal = Coastal City

Coincidence, but kinda cool.

OK let’s not go too crazy here.

HERO.

GET OVER IT YOU SAD POUTINE-EATING FRANCOPHONES.

“LAW HO” was actually a rejected Arrested Development license plate.

Um, right. Let’s just get this over with.

 

FIRST PERIOD:

Apparently the third-string goalie is playing well.

“Back then they didn’t want me. Now I’m hot, they all on me.
I’m Martin Jones, don’t act like you don’t know the name!”

LOL.

That’s Raccoon Jesus to you, sir.

Moar lolz.

Wow. Harsh criticism.

 

SECOND PERIOD:

*swoon*

 

THIRD PERIOD:

YA GOTTA BELEIVE!

Well I was joking, but good for you.

Kings fans, best fans.

 
TRH THREE STARS OF THE NIGHT

3. Drew Doughty

 

3. Helene Elliott

Helene Elliott, everyone!

 

2. Anze Kopitar

After the game, East Coast @PHWA writers moved Kopitar up to No. 64 in their Selke rankings.
He may even be able to pass No. 63 on the list, Tyler Bozak,
provided he scores a double hat trick while blindfolded tonight.

 

1. Martin Jones

Ho-hum, another shutout for Mr. Jones.
Sadly, this means Jones is now the sixth best goaltender in LA Kings franchise history.
