FREEWAY FARCE: Playoffs Week 2



Playoffs Week 2 (Apr 21 – Apr 27)

Los Angeles Kings (1st Round, Trailing Sharks 3-2)

GIF That Best Represents the Past Week for the LA Kings:


I’m not sure how many Kings fans will survive the anxiety of this series.

Stoll, the Goon:

I have read that over 100 times, and still have no idea what it means.

Are you referring to this?

I’m having trouble keeping track of whose fault this is.

Well, I’m sure with all of this certainty, something must have come of it.

And I would love to hear that Comcast Bay Area PA try to argue how Stoll’s was worse than Torres’.

No matter how this series ends, I’m going to miss insane Sharks fans.

GCF – Gann Creep Factor:


A mere 0.5 on the GCF, BUT OH MY GOD HE IS THE WORST.


Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (1st Round, Defeated Stars 4-2)

GIF That Best Represents the Past Week for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim:


We didn’t blow another series lead!

The Worst of the Worst from @ducksfanzone:

Either Tyler Toffoli’s greatness has crossed over … or … I have no idea what is happening.

Better to Burn Out Than to Fade Away:

So this happened in a playoff game last week:

And Teemu’s son, as any kid would, expressed himself on Twitter(since deleted):


So Battle of California pointed out that Eemil has a history of doing such things. Here are some of the highlights that they gathered:

and some of his more interesting RTs:

Teemu spoke to the LA Times about this (hilarious) issue:

“Just like a box of chocolates … you never know,” Teemu Selanne said Thursday. “When I heard, I said, ‘Just take it out.’ I thought it was funny. I don’t tweet, not into Facebook.”

Oh, Teemu

And the ever-feisty Eemil back-tracked a bit:

Question: how many Boudreau fat jokes are have been made in the Selanne household this season?



First Round, Worst Opposing Tweeter*:

Kings: @nuggetsauce


At least @stars_insider gets what this Stars season was really about … HIM!

Winner: KurZZZZZZZ


His patience is wearing thin with you, Sharks fans.


Second Round, War of Words:

Kings: Dan Boyle of the San Jose Sharks

I think the Kings may be rattling the Sharks a bit?

Ducks: Bruce Boudreau

Exclusive footage of Boudreau thanking Roy:

Winner: Brevity

What a clicks whore.


Third Round, Video Highlight of the Week:


The Royal Half and Jesse Cohen basically said that Toffoli/Pearson = Gretzky/Robitaille on the last All the Kings Men Podcast, which is kinda insane … BUT IS IT?!?!?!

Ducks: Comeback or Choke?

I haven’t seen a Dallas team blow a late lead that badly since every fourth quarter featuring Tony Romo. 

Winner: Jonathan Quick

#StartBernier #StartScrivens #StartMiller #StartJones

For the record, Randy Hahn called one of those saves a blocked shot and said that another hit the post. Keep your Bob Miller mocking to yourselves, Sharks fans.


WINNER OF THE WEEK: The LA Kings Insider Mentorship Program

A rambling man, Hrudey can't be tied to any one team. But because he's too cheap for NHL Gamecenter, his NHL universe consists only of Ducks and Kings broadcasts. What he lacks in knowledge of the actual sport of hockey, he makes up for in snark and pop culture references. You can follow Hrudey Can't Fail on Twitter @HrudeyCantFail.
