After the first period, I didn’t know what to think. I didn’t know if I was watching the Kings of this regular season or last. Whatever was said between the 1st and 2nd, whatever was done, our Los Angeles Kings showed up and took control of this game and this series.
Jack Johnson made a statement tonight. He is not hype. He is a hero.
Wayne Simmonds on the first line was a God sent.
Anze Kopitar played like a Selke Trophy candidate and, most important, scored the game winning goal as only big time players do.
Michal Handzus is the definition of leader on the ice.
Brad Richardson has taken a leap forward from one season to another bigger than any Kings player I can remember in 3 decades of watching this team.
Dustin Brown showed that he doesn’t have to score goals to be effective. Power in forward motion.
We got Modin for a conditional 7th round draft pick. That seems far more insane now than it ever did.
What a difference playing 4 lines makes.
Drew Doughty is deity. His average game is most players’ great.
We played a poor game 1 and took them to overtime.
We played a better game 2 and beat them in overtime.
