Wicked Win

Whenever an East Coast team comes into the Staples Center… it’s always a treat for dedicated Los Angeles Kings fans. And when it’s a team with such ravenous fans as the Boston Bruins… it’s even better. Why do I like it so much when East Coast teams come into town? Because their fans usually have such great jerseys:

A Classic. Can’t go wrong with Cam.

You have to really love set-up men to get an Adam Oates jersey.

This dude was wearing a Bruins jersey with a kilt.
I fully expect this to be the next Lady Gaga outfit.

I think it’s weird to wear a jersey of a player that
you aren’t old enough to have seen play in person.

This guy is such a hardcore Bruins fan that he wore his Quebec Nordiques
jersey just to get the Bruins motivated to play like they did in the Adams Division.

I guess what I’m saying is the crowd on Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles was a huge Pro-Boston crowd. How pro-Boston you ask?

Mass-holes for the win!
Kings 4, Bruins 3, Red Sox Nation 0

But all the wicked accents in the world couldn’t help Bruins fans as the Kings stormed back from a 3-1 deficit in the 3rd period to win the game in a shootout. Apparently, Jarret Stoll, Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar got tired of letting Brad Richardson and Scott Parse do all the scoring… and decided to step it up for this game. Is it just me… or are the Kings capable of having seven 20+ goal scorers this season?

Come on Drew! Make it 8!

So it’s San Jose on Tuesday. Buffalo on Thursday and then the Homestand to End All Homestands comes to an end.
