TRH RECAP 79: THE LEGEND OF BLOODFOOT

KINGS 1, CANUCKS 2

On a night where the Kings tried to stomp out the Vancouver Canucks’ dwindling playoff hopes for good, it looks like they stomped a little bit too hard:

This game, and the remaining three this regular season, won’t mean much to the Kings. They started a defenseman named “Soup”, for god’s sake.

I imagine it must be hard to give your best effort when you know that the *real* battle is just around the corner. Hmm, that kind of reminds me of something…

I was also saddened by our lone goal from Slava Voynov when I heard that it was his first goal in SIXTY games. What happened to our Russian Dynamo of 2012? Now, he’s most celebrated for his contribution to McDonald’s marketing team.

No, I’m guessing that’s because we already have a date for the dance, while the Canucks are still figuring out how to get their permission slip signed.

Voynov scored my baby too, it was awkward when I had to fish her out of the net afterwards.

Of course, we all know what the REAL highlight of this game was… Matt Greene’s Podiatry Nightmare.

And so, although Brad Richardson scored the GWG against us; although Matt Greene’s foot exploded; and even though we were unable to put the Canucks away for good last night, all I have to say is…

Meh.

We’re in the playoffs.

Say a quiet blessing for your toes,
