I have tasted this meal before. Predictable offensive zone entries, complete lack of creativity with the puck, failure to get the puck to the hashmarks or above, shots sailing over the net or wide, horrendous spacing between the forwards and defensemen on the breakouts, mind numbing turnovers and mental errors at our own blue line all with a demi glaze of average goaltending.
Yup. I have gotten this several games now when I have ordered Los Angeles Kings hockey. I am starting to think the owner doesn’t want me here…and the 18,000 brothers and sisters that I bring each night.
You can’t break down a game like this, not when the entire offensive and defensive system is fractured. Humpty Dumpty is more bloody than Boullion and the broth spewing from his face after the Wayne Simmonds fight. This is a bigger mess than one bad and a second comical goal given up by Jonathan Bernier. It’s uglier than watching Drew Doughty looking for a puck in the stands while the play is still going on beside him. It’s more head shaking than trying to watch Drewiske play defense. It’s more scream worthy than seeing shot after shot sail high or wide.
Five consecutive losses. This keeps up boys and girls, and you will see one of two things. Wanna guess what they are?
