TRH RECAP 34: H-AWKWARD END TO ROADTRIP

KINGS 1, BLACKHAWKS 3

What an amazing run it’s been for the LA Kings.

Saturday’s win against the Ottawa Senators pushed the Kings to 13-1-4 in their past 18 games.

The players were understandably excited about their recent success:

I love this team.

But Sunday brought about a new challenge against a familiar foe.

Chicago Blackhawks at the end of a roadtrip and on the second night of a back-to-back, you say?

*gulp*

Game 34 of the season: “THIS TIME IT MEANS MORE.”

Excessive drinking is probably a good idea.

Great job scheduling this non-rivalry game, NHL.
