TRH RECAP 74: PASSION PITT
KINGS 3, PENGUINS 2
Plenty of things have happened in the world since 2003, the last time the Kings won a game in Pittsburgh. Youtube was created (2005). Gmail became available for the general public (2007). The trapezoid was placed on the ice behind the net (2005). The debut of the iPhone (2007).
Yes, it’s been a while.
This momentous win came in equally spectacular fashion, as the Kings killed off 7 of 7 penalties on route to their 5th win in a row, and their 8th straight on the road. With this win, LA also kept the Penguins from clinching anything other than their buttcheeks, which was a nice added benefit.
But we need to stop for a moment to recognize one member of the Kings in particular.
Alec Martinez has more goals than Drew Doughty; he has no problem scoring on his best friend Jeff Zatkoff; and he takes to Twitter to solve one of the more pressing questions of our time:
Team debate: if milk chocolate is out of the question, would u rather eat dark choc or white. Can only pick 1. RT 4 dark, fav 4 white. Go.

Is there anything Marty can’t do?
It’s about time we shine the spotlight on a player who has previously been unfairly chained to Sutter’s doghouse. Let’s check out…

@theroyalhalf so, Alec Martinez is now 2 for 2 in games where he had dinner with the opposing goaltender the night before.

You gotta respect a player that goes to the box without a bitchy little protest (e.g. Alec Martinez of the @LAKings)

Only Pens fans could possibly think they're getting screwed in a game where power plays are 7-3 in their favor

FIRST STAR OF THE GAME:
Steve Kozari… the only hockey-related troll more masterful than The Half himself.
