TRH GAMEDAY 57 – COLORADO AVALANCHE: Playing the Percentages

The LA Kings recent surge has put them at the cusp of a playoff spot.

And with a win against the Colorado Avalanche tonight, the Kings would move into the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

Wow! Who would have thought that the defending Stanley Cup Champions had it in them!

So despite tonight’s game being played against the Avalanche, it seems like a fitting time to thank the co-stars of the EPIX Road to the Stadium Series for all of the hard work they’ve done to help the Kings climb back into the playoff picture.

The Kings couldn’t have done it without you, San Jose Sharks.

A mere 13 days ago, Sharks fans were dancing on the Kings proverbial grave.

That last one really hurt.

Not two weeks later, the Kings have three games in hand on the Sharks and find themselves only two points back of the Big Teal Machine.

Let’s see how those playoff odds look now.

First, for the Kings…
