TRH 3RD ROUND PLAYOFF RECAP 1/2 – CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS: JAIL BAIT

GAME 1: KINGS 1, HAWKS 2
GAME 2: KINGS 2, HAWKS 4

 

Ho hum, the Los Angeles Kings are back in the Western Conference Final.

Just four wins away from capturing the greatest trophy in sports – The Clarence S. Campbell Bowl – the Kings first had to face off against the President's Trophy-winning Chicago Blackhawks, a team that has given them fits over the past few seasons.

It was going to be a highly contested series that could go the full seven games, or just as easily result in a sweep for either team. One of those strange series where the teams were so evenly matched that no result would be surprising.

However, I liked the Kings chances against the record-setting Blackhawks. As long as Jonathan Quick kept his team in the game and could get inside the Hawks' heads, and leading scorer Mike Richards stayed healthy, I saw no problem for the defending champions…

…oh god.
 

Let's just get this over with.

*Note: The back-to-back games coupled with my indefinite Twitter Jail sentence (#FreePumperNicholl) made this two-game recap a bit trickier. If this is your first visit, what the hell took you so long? Also, the typical game-style recaps will be back for Game 3 if I haven't drank my weight in vodka and Bud Light Lime during the third period.
 

Oh this should be fun.
…or the complete opposite.
 
"As much as Detroit" what?
 

Sorry, Sharks fans.

Nothing better than a homophobic slur followed by a homoerotic wish.
 

"For lyfe."
 

This would be the highlight of Mike's life.
 
 

 We all picture the Stanley Cup surrounded by floating feathers, right?

Whew. I was worried the Kings were into coprophilia.
 
 
 
 
TRH THREE STARS OF THE NIGHT:
 
3. Blackhawks Fans

That was the saddest thing I've ever seen.
 

I think you mean "Native American."
 

Sounds eerily similar to the Madhouse on Madison.
 
A normal, well-adjusted Blackhawks fan.
 

And thus the Great Chicago Fire of 2013 began…
 

Another normal, well-adjusted Blackhawks fan.
 

I can't believe this guy didn't have any friends to drink with.

Ugh. I can't believe we have to see these fans for another four games.
 
 
2. Jonathan Quick
Joe Bernier was actually saying this to all of the people who want Quick benched.
 

 
*slams head against desk*
 
 
1. Patrick Kane

Double ugh.
 
Well at least Patrick Kane believes in the Kings.
