TRH RECAP 56: High Five in a Row

KINGS 3, LIGHTNING 2

The LA Kings won. Again.

And it sure is great to see that this team is back!

LA Kings 9th Place 2.17.2015

Back in 9th place, that is.

The Kings have now won five straight, which is only the second time they’ve managed a winning streak of five games or more (they won six straight in mid-October).

Still, the Kings find themselves outside of the playoffs as the teams they are chasing continue to win in the most aggravating ways possible.

Watching the Oilers blow a 3rd period lead to the Jets.

And the Bruins blowing a 3-0 lead to the Flames.

But the Kings won, and that’s the most important to happen last night. Especially considering that they haven’t been doing much of that lately.

So what exactly has been the catalyst for this recent streak?

The emergence of That 70s Line Part Deux?

Timely saves by Jonathan Quick?

Drew Doughty somehow playing even better than we ever imagined?

No, no and no.

The real reason the Kings have turned their season around is crazy fan superstitions!

HOW DOES A HAT LOOK LIKE THAT IN LESS THAN THREE YEARS?!?
This is so gross that I’m cutting the recap short.

TRH THREE STARS OF THE NIGHT

3. Drew Doughty to Jeff Carter

*jaw hits floor*

 

2. Jonathan Quick

Praise be based Quick.

 

1. Jordan Nolan

Seriously, can every Kings player change their number to one in the 70s?

    As pumper pointed out in the podcast, Nolan had a wide open streaking Jefe and decided to backhand it instead. He basically told Jefe to “deal with it.”
