TRH RECAP 1: WILD COMEBACK
KINGS 3, WILD 2 (SO)
WELCOME BACK, FRIENDS AND PEOPLE WHO CALL ME A BASEMENT-DWELLING MORON!
Oh how I’ve missed you all.
So where were we? Ah, that’s right. We were just about to laugh at that team that lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in 5 games and had that one heartbreaking overtime loss that otherwise could have turned their entire season around.
But that’s all behind both teams now, and they have a clean slate to work with in an actual full season.
It all started last night as the Minnesota Wild hosted the LA Kings for their season opener.
HAPPY GAME DAY KINGS FANS!!!! Now let's go out and correct the grammar of the adjectives. What the fuck kind of name is Wild anyway?

And the trash talk begins!
Wore my LA Kings SC Champs shirt. Fuck football hockey is where its at! Lol
— Sarah (@CheshireCanuck) October 3, 2013
Trying to wrap my head around a “Football Hockey” fan who has Canuck in her Twitter handle and is wearing an LA Kings Stanley Cup shirt just gave me a brain aneurysm.
DAD WHERE THE FUCK IS MY KINGS JACKET OMG #hockeyisback

“DAD! THE JACKET! I WANT IT NOW! THE JACKET! What is he doing? I never know what he’s doing back there…”
— Ben Yokiel (@benny_yo1) October 3, 2013
That’s right. Totally reformed and newly signed free agent Matt Cooke won’t forget what happened between two teams he had no affiliation with last season.

THIS GUY HAS THE WORST LIFE!
Let’s just get this started already…

#STARTSCRIVENS PANIC TIME!!!
If your wearing a kings jersey with no signatures your basic as fuck.
— Jesse Adam Medina ▲ (@JesseAdam_) October 4, 2013
I guess that means every member of the LA Kings is pretty gosh darn basic.

Jonas Brodin wet those panties with this
— Kaleigh Malave (@ShaunJacobidFbi) October 4, 2013
And you thought the Doughty goal was over the top.
Stuff happened, probably.
But then actual stuff happened! …dreamy stuff!
However, it did make some people rather upset.
I fucking hate Jeff carter
— Ben Vernon (@benjaminclarkv) October 4, 2013
FUCK OFF JEFF CARTER.
— Ron Mexico (@bryancomplains) October 4, 2013
Jeff Carter needs to suck a dick too!
— Dan (@DanTheMan4114) October 4, 2013
When Jeff Carter scores I die a little bit inside
— Gianni Evangelisti (@GEvangelisti7) October 4, 2013
I guess “rather upset” was an understatement.
I just wish someone was able to sum up exactly how every LA Kings fan felt after Jeff Carter was able to even up the score…
Sooo jealous of this game. I want Jeff Carter to tie me up, too.

<3 <3 <3
Quick shut the door in the OT and Kopi and Carter quickly put it away in the shootout. The natives were not amused.
Fuck u Kopitar go die
— Devonne berry (@Devo_berry19) October 4, 2013
The undead can’t die.
Fuck u to Carter go join Kopitar's grave
— Devonne berry (@Devo_berry19) October 4, 2013

That escalated and was defused rather quickly.

— Joshua Ryan (@JoshuaDaugherty) October 4, 2013

— jacee (@aionjacee) October 2, 2013
Said everyone from Minnesota ever.
At least fans didn’t overreact to the Kings winning their first game of the regular season.
Hoo boy. This is not going to end well.
3. Wild Fans
2. Trevor Lewis
#LAKings verified with T Lewis No truth to rumor NHL is asking him to cut 2 inches from each leg pad
— Jim Fox (@JimFox19) October 4, 2013
Trevor Lewis and Jim Fox forever.
1. Jeff Carter
Was there any doubt who it would be after the first game, or very likely every other game this season?
Now @theroyalhalf needs clean underwear
— All The Kings Men (@KingsMenPodcast) October 4, 2013
THANK YOU BASED CHEETO!!!
— Brigitte Lynne (@OneGirlOnePuck) October 4, 2013
Seriously where do I sign up to be Jeff Carter's best friend???
— The Duke (@DukeofLAHockey) October 4, 2013
— The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) October 4, 2013
I can’t help but think Jeff Carter whispered “sup.” to Backstrom when he pulled that backhander.
— Indiana Matt (@Indiana_Matt) October 4, 2013
All of these were great in their own way, but no one could sum up the night quite like this Zoolander-loving Kings fan:
was there ever any doubt that Jeff Carter would come from behind?
