TRH RECAP – SAN JOSE SHARKS ROUND 1 GAME 2: LAYING AN EGG
KINGS 2, SHARKS 7 (!)
Happy post-Easter and continued Passover, everyone!
How was your Easter? We at The Royal Half hope you had a wonderful Easter. So good, in fact, we hope you passed out sometime early afternoon due to a brunch-induced coma and woke up sometime after this abomination of professional athletics took place. Seriously, you lying your fat ass on the couch all afternoon was more effective than most of the Kings. No offense, of course.
Anyway, not all of us were so lucky. But, we’ll get to that in a moment…
…oh, what the hell. Let’s get this shit over with.

That's the kind of start the Kings wanted. Early goal, Jake Muzzin gets 'em buzzin'

Gol do Kings com 2 minutos de jogo. Jake Muzzin

Sharks are all over the Kings after the Muzzin goal. Quick's been big already.

Muzzin and Lewis scored to put the Kings up 2-0 after the first. Not a joke, just a fact.

Sharks need to pick up their game. Muzzin and Lewis have the goals for Kings!

Trevor Lewis the Kings leader in KORAB at the end of the 1st: 0.84. Really gritty performance so far.

There would be no Easter miracle.
#TreatLA Sharks fans give Kings fans super fancy Easter baskets

I'm seeing a lot of Kings that should have stayed in their graves. Happy Easter LA. Go Sharks. — at SAP Center http://t.co/3Bq83cd2XK

Sharks owned the Kings and Game of Thrones was awesome. Perhaps Easter wasn't so shitty after all lol

Zach, in some ways, you and I are very different people.
Touchdown for the Sharks.

3rd Star: Germans
Of course a German scores on Hitler’s birthday.

@theroyalhalf I saw a guy rockin’ the Hitler stache at Universal today. That takes balls. Maybe the Kings should sign him.

2nd Star: Lost Hope
If Jesus can come back from being dead for three days, the Kings can come back from being down 2 games, right? Right?

A bunch of jokers on twitter, supposed Kings fans taking shots, making jokes. See you for game 3 and you can hide behind your phone.
— Patrick O'Neal (@Patrick_ONeal) April 21, 2014
That’s a great sentiment, Patrick. It really is. I think what Patrick means is the best way to handle something this depressing is not to use humor, but to lash out at others like a petulant child. You really know the right words to say/tweet, Patty O.
Positivity aside, no postgame quote or players only team meeting is going to change what happened. Fans and players will cope with losses in their own way. But, nothing about this groups of players is encouraging at the moment. The Kings were obviously broken up after this game. Just look at this photo of their dressing room taken just after the game. The look of dejection on those faces is crushing… Find a silver lining, Kings fans. I dare you.

What’s the next stage after fear? Oh, that’s right: Acceptance. Yay Kings! Hashtag Reverse Sweep!!! You can do it! 16-2 in the playoffs!
We’re not done recapping this shitshow. KORAB stats for Game 2 and the series are on the way!
