TRH RECAP 67: Eight is Phaneuf

KINGS 2, LEAFS 3

The LA Kings are seemingly unstoppable right now.

With wins over Columbus, Calgary (twice!), Edmonton, Winnipeg, Carolina… Um, well they beat Colorado in that streak as well!

Regardless, a win is a win, and the Kings were struggling mightily to get any of those before the Olympic break.

And now with Marian Gaborik in the fold, the team seems poised to have regained some of its offensive prowess ahead of the playoffs. The increased goal scoring ability coupled with its already stellar defensive play has pushed the Kings back into “contender” status.

So what better way to start padding on some more points in the standings than taking care of business at home.

Up first, the anti-Corsi Toronto Maple Leafs!

Oh god… This isn’t going to end well, is it?
