TRH RECAP – CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS ROUND 3 GAME 5: DOUBLE OMG

KINGS 4, BLACKHAWKS 5 (2OT)

After falling behind three games to none in the opening round, LA Kings fans everywhere fully expected their team to have the defending Stanley Cup Champions on the ropes in the Western Conference Final.

What? Just me?

The last few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind, but here we are.

Now it’s up to the Kings to put away the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 before the defending champs have a chance to regroup and extend the series.

*sigh*

Let’s see how it played out.

Did Clark Wong just become the biggest troll in Kings fandom history?

Yikes.
Someone better go check on @heyyitscassiee after what happened in this game.

Somehow its 3-2 Blackhawks after the first period.
No, really. Just go ahead and throw logic out for this game.
Anything is in play:
Unicorns, meteor crashing into center ice, Michal Handzus scoring in double OT… you name it.

 

SECOND PERIOD:

Really.

“Ah… nuts!”

 

1. Michal Handzus

*barf*

Shoutout to the guy in the Kane jersey who missed the goal and then air fisted.

And shoutout to Blackhawks management for watching a rerun of the French Open in double OT.
