And So The Last Homestand Of The Regular Season Begins: Open Forum

Well my friends, it’s been a fun ride, this regular season. There are only two times where we will attend Staples Center this year and still possibly leave with our larynx intact. After this Thursday, the next time we visit Staples it will be not with our game faces, but with our murder faces. Did you know that if you google “game face” this pops up on the first page? You know why? Because women kissing is appropriate everywhere. Except of course for the Sedin twins, those women kissing belongs nowhere.

Tonight we face the Edmonton Oilers again. Three days ago we took their role of spoiler, applied it to a carton of milk and poured it down their miserable windpipes. Perhaps they will be angry tonight. It is unlikely that will help Khabibulin be 10 years younger or their defense be capable of closing a gap. As is often the case, the fate of this one lies predominantly in the team’s ability to not fall prey to the kind of mental lapses that cost them the last game against the Wild.

It looks like Davis Drewiske might get some action tonight. No idea if that means he takes Richardson’s spot or if he replaces a defenseman. Could be someone else coming out, Richardson did score two goals last game. Jonathan Quick will be in net but the best news of the day is about someone not playing. Jeff Carter’s medical tests revealed nothing but a bruise. A deep bruise, but no fractures, tears, breaks or goblins, so he could be back before the playoffs.

With the Kings needing at least 4 out of the last possible 6 points to challenge for the division title and the final two games against a San Jose team that is paddling frantically in uncharted waters, this game nigh on qualifies for every category of must win. They must win if they are going to go into the final two against San Jose with the largest of margins for error. They must win if they want to put pressure on the Dallas Stars. They must win if they want us to post more pictures of women kissing.

Dumbass. I said they had to win first.

    “Pride. Passion. Pussy.”

  2. I have to say, I’m pretty confindent that the Kings will come out really strong tonight. And, if they score the first goal I really like their chances of winning.

  3. Plenty of beer will be going down the hatch tonight…Nerves will be a season-high.

    They’ve gotta take this game.

    Methinks Quick is going to say “No” to the Oilers’ shooters tonight.

  4. Okay, just win tonight, and Doughty can kiss Quick as much as he wants so far as I woud care.

  5. Doughty saves the “real” action for Stolly.

  6. So, if the Kings win tonight, then this is true….

    GO KINGS GO!!!

  7. The set up for this game is perfect. The Kings have a good winning run in progress. The team is rested. At home. Big roaring crowd. Pacific Title within reach. Many players are hot. Quick is a wall. What more could anyone ask for.
    Just kick butt and take them with a laugher.
    Just be poised so no crappy penalties.

  8. Oh Patrick Oneal.

  9. Look.

    I can’t handle this shit any more. I’m a fucking heart patient on medication and these tight-ass games are playing havoc with my blood pressure.

    In the third period I was hyperventilating like a glass oven bellows.

    All this chazerai has gotta stop!

    You assholes always know everything. You’ve climbed inside Lombardi’s head and up Sutter’s ass. Do something, will you please?!?

  10. Does King have some soft hands or what on that slot chip in! That was sweet and not easy.
    King is a keeper.

    1/8 of Quick’s game are goose eggs to the opponents.

    Kopi showing signs of breaking out to a fully versatile and powerful dynamo on the ice.

    How about the determined late in the game steal by Lewis to keep the puck in the zone.

    Slava had a fast and accurate shot that was an explosive one timer.

    It was amazing to watch the Kings in a super up tiempo offensive landslide of constant attacking even in the face of many great goalie saves and hitting posts, and pucks landing in the crease up for grabs.

    If the Kings can balance both this kind of offense and stingy defense, this is the recipe we all been waiting for so patiently and frustratingly.

    Now the Kings are sitting pretty and really looking good with this winning streak which is exactly what the league best teams try to do in entering the playoffs.

    Great game, win, and GO KINGS GO!
