TRH RECAP – NEW YORK RANGERS ROUND 4 GAME 1: JUSTIN (OVER)TIME

KINGS 3, RANGERS 2 (OT)

A dramatic Game 7 overtime win wrapped up the LA Kings season as they skated off into the sunset—

Wait, what?! THERE’S ANOTHER ROUND!?

*pops a lorazepam*

You’re telling me that after 21 games the Kings still haven’t won the Stanley Cup? It only took 20 games in 2012!

Well, alright, I guess they need to win one more series before we can all go one with our lives and stop waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. No? Just me?

So the proverbial final hill to climb comes in the form of the New York Rangers. Last time we saw the Blueshirts at Staples Center nothing embarrassing or noteworthy occurred. Nope. Not a thing.

Oh, right. Well, whatever. The Kings just took down the Sharks, Ducks and Blackhawks while the Rangers won the Eastern Conference (LOL) after defeating teams that featured goalies even the ECHL would reject.

Anyway, let’s focus on the present and see how fans prepared for Game 1:

Well hello to you, too.

Hmm… this seems like it could go on for a while.
Let’s just skip forward a bit.

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

 

FIRST PERIOD:

Such fond memories.

It just keeps getting better.

New York role models.

Um…

It stings like a thousand Slava Voynov skate blades slicing into my heart.

Good season, boys. Let’s pack it in.

I’m sorry I stopped reading about two words in.

The future of LA Kings fandom is looking brighter every day.

 

SECOND PERIOD:

I guess we all have our dreams.

Uhh…
It’s 2-2 at this point. Let’s just move on.

 

THIRD PERIOD:

Boom. Roasted.

Ahh yes, the sunny pacific coastal shores of Montreal.

 

OVERTIME:

*searches Urban Dictionary*
NO ONE CALLS MY FAVORITE TEAM “BASIC.”

Whoa, that’s a bit extreme.

No, seriously.

“lol”

At least Rangers fans vocabulary improved throughout the game.

 
TRH THREE STARS OF THE NIGHT

3. ALL THE INTROS

*plays on repeat until Game 2*

YOU WATCH YOUR MOUTH WHEN YOU SPEAK TO JEFF CARTER!

…all is forgiven.

Is there anything Justin Williams can’t do?
That was rhetorical.
We all know he can do everything. <3 <3 <3
