The new mantra for Kings fans is quickly becoming “Believe!” Believe that this team’s success early in the season is nothing less than what we can expect for the remainder. Believe that we are headed for the playoffs and oh, so much more.
Today, in a 1pm matinee, our boys face the Nashville Predators. Nashville got hot after a rough start, winning 4 straight before falling to the Anaheim Ducks 4-0 in a game that may be credited as much to Jonas Hiller as Nashville’s inability to generate offense, especially on the powerplay.
While every game is important and certainly coaches and players will tell you that no opponent can be taken lightly, victory in a game like this after the “high” of beating the Penguins two nights ago can do much to maintain momentum. Young success doesn’t have the luxury of taking any days off and the best cure for a hangover coming off a big win is more wins – for winning is one of the few things in life in which, under every circumstance, more is better.
