TRH RECAP 61: #FLAMS XTINGUISHD

KINGS 2, FLAMES 0

Coming off their offensive explosion against the Colorado Avalanche the night before, the LA Kings were back at it as they headed to Calgary to take on the Flames.

Normally, teams would welcome a basement-dwelling opponent, but the Kings have made the Flames look like playoff contenders in their previous two meetings this season.

Not really. The Kings were just awful in those two losses.

On the bright side, at least the Kings know they have to get up for the easier games on their schedule.

On whether the team is guilty of playing to the level of competition:

“Yeah, you can call it that way. It’s something that we obviously don’t want to do, but maybe it creeps in a little bit. We’ve got to make sure that doesn’t happen often.” – Anze Kopitar following the Kings 2-1 loss to the Flames in November

Welp, in that case this should be another fun one!

Someone on the Internet please hold this guy back.

*soon*

Oh crap.

Oh man what a burn on a captain of a Stanley Cup champ and a Conn Smythe winner!!

Alright, now let’s just get this over with.

That Flomax prescription is finally paying off for the Kings offense!

Canadian Olympic team offense = Calgary Flames offense

Take it easy on friend of the blog @mikeFAIL.

How could you ever refer to anything about Dwight King as “ugly?”
