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!
this guy just said fuck the flames hold me BACK

Someone on the Internet please hold this guy back.
Don't know if I should be excited cuz we won last night with lots of goals, or sick to my stomach cuz it's the fucking Flames. #LAKings

#LAKings facing off against both the Flames and a back up goaltender? Shit.

There are metal detectors at the Saddledome. I noticed they did not go off when Team USA's Jonathan Quick and Dustin Brown passed through.

Oh man what a burn on a captain of a Stanley Cup champ and a Conn Smythe winner!!
Oh for Christ’s sake…
Big cheer for Jeff Carter. Bigger cheer for Drew Doughty as the #Flames salute the Olympians playing in tonight's game.
— Aaron Vickers (@AAVickers) February 28, 2014
Nice ovation by #Flames fans for all those who played at the Olympics. Loudest for Canadian gold medalists Drew Doughty and Jeff Carter.

Thanks for showing up, everyone else!
Alright, now let’s just get this over with.
There's your middle finger for that medal ceremony, Calgary. Dustin Brown 1, Flames 0 #lakings
— Brian Thole (@brianth7) February 28, 2014
I really hate Dustin Brown… (except when he's scoring against the Canucks).

Where's a middle finger emoji for all the Dustin Brown hating Kings fans.

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

Dustin Brown's goofy toothless smile is the :D emoticon in real life.
— THX BUD (@thxbud) February 28, 2014
I JUST HURT MY KNEE BUT DUSTIN BROWN IS NOWHERE IN SIGHT??
— riaen (@rianeban) February 28, 2014
Dustin Brown is hilariously inbred looking.
— Fallacy Gamers (@Jeremywilhelm) February 28, 2014
Holy crap Jonathan Quick is a wall tonight. Me thinks the Flames are feeling his wrath for what Team Canada did to Team USA In the Olympics!
— Jordan Robinson (@ironangel82) February 28, 2014
Canadian Olympic team offense = Calgary Flames offense

Joe Colborne didn't get a penalty for whacking the goalie, he was put in the box to keep him safe from Jonathan Quick #lakings
— Michael Blinn (@NHLBlinn) February 28, 2014
Dwight King looks like one of those South Beach guys way past his prime who tries hard to get laid. Who also may be a sex predator.
— MIKE FAIL (@mikeFAIL) February 28, 2014
The flames fucking suck
— Martin (@MMArtinitus) February 28, 2014
Hey @JonathanQuick32 I see you're first place in slashing/tripping/acting/selling calls but a fourth place Olympian, hoser.
— MIKE FAIL (@mikeFAIL) February 28, 2014
Take it easy on friend of the blog @mikeFAIL.
After all, he’s already a Flames fan.

I think we found Mike Milbury’s private account.
Horny Oreo in goal for the Flames tonight against #LAKings
— John Hernandez (@goteamjohn) February 28, 2014
On the bright side for @JonathanQuick32 tonight, he finally beats a Canadian hockey team this February.

3. Dwight King
— Randy Foster (@randy_foster) February 28, 2014
How could you ever refer to anything about Dwight King as “ugly?”
2. Dustin Brown
The most surprising thing about Dustin Brown’s goal was how he celebrated it:
1. Calgary Flames Fans
Bob Hartley wanted a playoff-type atmosphere for remaining Flames home games. Saddledome crowd currently doing the wave.

#Flams fans forever.
