TRH RECAP 32: MAPLE GRIEF: KINGS BERN LEAFS

KINGS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 1

Back-to-back matchups against two of the most storied franchises in NHL history?

The LA Kings were sure to be a tough couple of day–

*muffled sounds*

–What’s that?

Eastern Conference teams? Are you sure?

Oh.

Well, um, I’m sure the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs would still be another great televised practice before the Kings face-off against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.

Taylor Stevens alert!

I don’t think she likes this “Brook” person.

Remember kids: When you get angry about something you can’t control, turn to racist comments.
