TRH RECAP 67: Eight is Phaneuf
KINGS 2, LEAFS 3
The LA Kings are seemingly unstoppable right now.
With wins over Columbus, Calgary (twice!), Edmonton, Winnipeg, Carolina… Um, well they beat Colorado in that streak as well!
Regardless, a win is a win, and the Kings were struggling mightily to get any of those before the Olympic break.
And now with Marian Gaborik in the fold, the team seems poised to have regained some of its offensive prowess ahead of the playoffs. The increased goal scoring ability coupled with its already stellar defensive play has pushed the Kings back into “contender” status.
So what better way to start padding on some more points in the standings than taking care of business at home.
Up first, the anti-Corsi Toronto Maple Leafs!
Oh god… This isn’t going to end well, is it?
I've never yearned for a single point prior to a game starting as I do with #leafs being set to face the kings. Just a point.

That “Riemer” is one handsome man.
I'd say I'll be the guy in the #Leafs jersey at the LAKings game tonight, but that doesn't really narrow it down.

I like to think that I'm wearing the Justin Williams jersey tonight solely to make Leafs fans jealous of our awesome Corsi. #LAKings

…let’s just get this over with.
Of course Gaborik scores his first goal as an LA King against the Leafs … This always happens -.-
— bianca (@biancabozak) March 14, 2014
GABBO! GABBO! GABBO!
Gaborik scored. Matt Frattin was in the trade for him. The goal was on Bernier THEREFORE THE LEAFS LOST THE TRADE.
— Steve Dangle Glynn (@Steve_Dangle) March 14, 2014
Fucking Gaborik would score his first against the Leafs.
— josh (@nhlmapIeIeafs) March 14, 2014
With that goal, Marian Gaborik leaps past Anson Carter on the goal scoring list of LA Kings Trade Deadline acquisitions.
