TRH RECAP 34: H-AWKWARD END TO ROADTRIP
KINGS 1, BLACKHAWKS 3
What an amazing run it’s been for the LA Kings.
Saturday’s win against the Ottawa Senators pushed the Kings to 13-1-4 in their past 18 games.
The players were understandably excited about their recent success:
I love this team.
But Sunday brought about a new challenge against a familiar foe.
Chicago Blackhawks at the end of a roadtrip and on the second night of a back-to-back, you say?
Let's hope the hawks pull their heads outta their asses for tonight's game against the Kings. #MeantToBeBestInTheLeague

Great job scheduling this non-rivalry game, NHL.
I swear if the kings lose tonight to the hawks I'll be so pissed :)

Had CrapDonalds for dinner since no one wanted to cook. Now it's almost Hawks game time. WGN game so Kings broadcast on Center Ice.

This is a strange day. Since I live in Chicago, and because FUCK THE LA KINGS!!!!!! I will go ahead and say it: Go Hawks!

Yo, @LAKings, you're playing an actually good Western Conference team, don't fuck it up.

Well that was graphic.
No team has scored against the Kings in the first period in the past month and a half. Hawks have now done it twice #Chicago
— Cori Sobota (@coors94) December 16, 2013
Holy crap, hawks. I was hoping that the kings would make it harder for you.
— Janeta (@wrxie) December 16, 2013
18 games the kings haven't allowed a single goal in the 1st period. They play the Hawks and have allowed 2 already. #SuckitLA
— Ty Luebcke (@tyluebcke) December 16, 2013
hawks love trashing streaks.. last year knocked off kings home playoff winning streak.. today 1st goal in 1st period in 18 games …
— Brendan Millhouser (@ChiBDM) December 16, 2013
Of course…Hawks already up 2-0 on the the KINGS & I paid money to see that disaster in person last night. Note I'm on my couch for this gm

On the one hand, it's awesome I can watch a hockey game, live, on my phone in the airport. On the other hand, FOR FUCK'S SAKE, @LAKINGS.

Someone should have stopped this poor guy.
Just tried to explain to my girlfriend how awesome it was that the Hawks scored in the first period against the Kings.

— E$AP (@halfmoonelham) December 16, 2013
— nicky sams (@nickclamuels) December 16, 2013
so the Kings didn't let up a first period goal or give up more than 2 goals per game in 18 straight. Hawks just broke both in the first.
— Neco Colie (@necocolie) December 16, 2013
Hawks are shitting on the kings, this could get ugly
— Fio (@MitchWednesday) December 16, 2013
Scumbag Hawks: Kings haven't allowed 1st period goals in 18 games…make well sure that streak gets broken

I'm watching the Blackhawks game in California and all the Kings announcers are talking about is how amazing the Hawks are.
— Julianna (@rumbleroar99) December 16, 2013
LA announcers singing love songs about our Hawks, just in case Kings fans aren't pissed off enough yet.
— guinevere (@mnmsplease) December 16, 2013
At this point, I think I'd rather still be battling the holiday crowds downtown than watching this Kings-Hawks game.
— Hi, I'm Diane. (@akadianephan) December 16, 2013
I thought the Hawks would be really tired from having their asses handed to them last night. But they decided to take it out on the Kings.
— Joe Nixon (@nixoreno) December 16, 2013
Know what will make me heppy heppy heppy right now? Watching the 'Hawks blow away the Kings.
— Mimi (@habschick66) December 16, 2013
Every time they play against the hawks ugh, I mean I love them both but seriously kings?
— stacy (@miiissstacy) December 16, 2013
