Longest Road Trip Ever

The Los Angeles Kings had some impressive road trips this NHL season… but none more impressive than the one my playoff tickets took to get to me today.

Calgary to Memphis to LA? 
There’s gotta be better ways to save money, LA Kings.

But no matter how far they traveled… the tickets are here. And the Kings Marketing Department are quite the optimists… included are tickets to all 4 rounds of the playoffs, that’s right… even the Stanley Cup Finals.

The only thing crazier than the road trip my Kings playoff tickets took is the road trip I’m about to take. That’s right, The Royal Half is heading to Canada for Game 2 of the 1st round series between the Kings and Canucks. Your one-stop-source for all news Canucks, Benched Whale, will be showing me how the Canadians do hockey. I have a feeling there will be a lot less Heidi Androl and a lot more beer. Keep checking out the Whale for all the pre-series breakdowns and matchups for the upcoming series. Playoff hockey… can you feel it?

The awesome Flyers blog, Flyers Goal Scored By, asked me to chime in on how a former Flyer was doing for the Kings this year. He first rejected my essay on Jeremy Roenick but later he let me wax poetic about Randy Jones. You can check it out here.

The Royal Half has been a Los Angeles Kings fan since 1988 and a Half-Season Ticket Holder since 2002. He has seen the following goaltenders play in person for the Los Angeles Kings… Kelly Hrudey, Grant Fuhr, Byron Dafoe, Jamie Storr, Stephane Fiset, Felix Potvin, Cristobal Huet, Roman Cechmanek, Mathieu Garon, Adam Hauser, Jason LaBarbera, Barry Brust, Sean Burke, Dan Cloutier, Yutaka Fukufuji, Jean-Sebastien Aubin, Erik Ersberg, Jonathan Bernier, Jonathan Quick, Ben Scrivens and Martin Jones.You can follow The Royal Half on Twitter @TheRoyalHalf.
