Third Time’s a Charm
Just got home from Staples and wow, was that an awesome one. The Kings looked strong throughout the entire game and for once, just once, it seemed that the 11,000 or so people at Staples Center were positive that in the final 5 minutes of the game and into overtime… the Kings were NOT going to give up a goal. That my friends is called confidence. The confidence that a goaltender named Erik Ersberg has brought to this team.
This is during one of his quiet, introspective moments.
I didn’t get a good look at the Dustin Brown hit that led to that major penalty, but from the replay on the jumbotron, it sure didn’t look like boarding. And boy, Coach Murray seems like a genius for putting Wayne Simmonds out there in the shootout.
3 games in a row. First time since January of 2007. Such excitement for this young team. Getting excited about 3 wins in a row should show you all just how tough it’s been for this team the last few seasons.
