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


Kings, pretty much.


Sick Celly, Bro:

Not sure if you guys heard, but the Kings won. In response, Kings fans posted the requisite reaction videos on Instagram.

What a scene at Gasser Lounge in Redondo Beach:

Can confirm, alcohol was involved in the making of this video:

The Kings win gets the Cloverfield treatment:

The excitement even reached behind the orange curtain. Here’s the scene at Sharkeez in Newport Beach:

Speaking of Sharkeez in Newport Beach:

Let’s dive deeper on reactions from members of the Kings family, as we continue with the players’ WAGs:

I respect and love all of the players on this Kings team so much that I won’t even make a smart ass comment at this point.

Next up, the Black Aces. Here’s Andrew Bodnarchuk’s return home from Chicago:

At last, we have arrived to the players:

Of course there’s that, but some of the guys even took to twitter:

I have no idea what that means, BUT FUCK YEAH!!!!

SWOON … but I feel like we are still missing something …  Capture THERE IT IS!


Faces of Death:

SadThornton Corey Perry Tears - The Royal Halfsad toews

The support group for the teams who had their will broken by the Los Angels Kings in the 2014 playoffs meets Monday nights in the church hall. The AA meeting next door has generously offered to share their doughnuts and coffee.


GCF (Gann Creep Factor):

:-0<====   (That’s supposed to be barfing.)

I’m giving that an 8.2 on the GCF scale. The high score is mainly due to his persistence with the matter.  


Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (Currently 3 over par on the 7th tee)

First Round, Worst Opposing Tweeter:

Kings: @Ihavnoswegg

Man, that burn was so good that he had to break it out twice. #DoubleBurn


Winner: This guy still doesn’t realize that we are all laughing AT him, not WITH him.

This is going to be really awkward when he finds out who the Kings played in the second round.

I don’t even know where to start with that one.

4. Justin Williams

“Obviously we’re looking around after being down 2-0, saying, ‘This wasn’t it for us, it wasn’t going to end this way.'”

3. Alec Martinez

2. Darryl Sutter:

Q: “What did you say to your team after the game?”

A: “Fly at 11.”

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.
