Anze Kopitar, Ryan Smyth, Wayne Simmonds, Dustin Brown, Jared Stoll and, tonight, add Alexander Frolov. Remember those names. If you are not a Los Angeles King, fear those names.
The Los Angeles Kings played a solid 40 minutes last night in Phoenix and beat the Coyotes.
Tonight, they played a relentless 60 and destroyed the Blue Jackets.
The passes connected. The shots were hard and on target. They hit to punish, to bring pain and pain they brought.
The goals were Handzus, Kopitar, Stoll, Kopitar, Frolov, followed by…Frolov for the Kings.
The Blue Jackets were irrelevant tonight. They never stood a chance.
More words are unnecessary. Let’s take a deep breath and enjoy this one.
