The Kings came into the game tonight without the following players: Ryan Smyth. Jarret Stoll. Wayne Simmonds. Jack Johnson. What would these players mean to any good hockey team? A lot of missing talent. What does it mean to the Kings? The heart of the first, second and third line, and a rough / tough / young / offensive defenseman. Oh yeah, Randy Jones was also out.
So, what did Kings fans expect from their team coming into tonight’s game on the road against the Calgary Flames? Simple. To win.
No excuses. No woe is me. From the drop of the puck, the Kings battled and while the game finished with a Flames victory 2-1, there isn’t a Kings fan that should look back at this game and feel anything other than pride in our boys’ heart and hustle.
Nothing to pout about. No regrets.
