TRH RECAP 58: #HereComesTheLAKingsOffense

KINGS 3, BLACKHAWKS 5

Welp, the LA Kings got shutout. Again.

And now all of those early season heroics seem like they happened decades ago. But that tends to happen when a team goes 5-13-2 in their past 20 games.

What, that’s not bad enough?

I’ll throw in 29 goals during those 20 games. Is that better?

*chugs lighter fluid*

At least the Olympic break is almost here and the Kings will have a chance to regroup. They just need to get past this game *checks schedule* oh for the love of…

Bring on the Chicago Blackhawks, I guess.

 

Be careful what you wish for, people.

Yeeesh.

THIRD PERIOD:

Uh, what?

Ouch.
