Surly and Scribe's Stanley Cup Champion L.A. Kings Hockey News
Our Kings, Who Hath Won the Stanley Cup, Hallowed Be Thy Game
The game that started it all…
Off-topic . . . but what the fuck happened to Dutch?
He musta REALLY gone off on a drunk after that OT goal.
Good idea to just put the porn straight on the website. I used to have to pull open a new tab but this is much easier.
Great wraparound by Lewis in game 2
I am not going to minimize the Stoll series wining goal last night (because it was so super big), but for me, the play of the series that I will always remember to be classic was the Brown hit on H. Sedin.
To me, that hit sent such a huge message of defiance, dominance, and authority where it was proving to the entire Cansuck team and their fans that the Kings were 100% real and determined to beat them in this series.
It came from our team Captain, in our barn, and in front of all of their players, where Sedin had to be blown away that anyone had the guts to wipe him out like that.
If our team will continue to play with that level of inspiration, the Kings can really do deep into the playoffs this year.
Hail Captain Brown, just lead and show us the promised land!
GO KINGS GO!!
More of the Kool-Aid that this guy is drinking, please!
I agree. We were losing that game until that hit and it completely turned that game around. Without that hit, we easily could have lost that game and the series may have looked completely different. With that hit, Vancouver is eliminated and the world of hockey is once again safe from tyranny.
For me, the biggest play of the series is GM5 2nd period Sedin Breakaway. That play was what truly gave us the chance to win the game, and we did !
In the western conference . . . Vancouver, Chicago, San Jose, Detroit — all of them gone the way of all flesh.
Who woulda thought?
The windows get smaller each season. Gotta go for it while you can.
Of course, before the season started that would have been a surprise. After watching the Western Conference the entire year these result surprise me not.
Before the Vancouver series started, I stated I was comfortable with this match up. I felt our style countered Vancouver’s perfectly. I didn’t think we would come one game of a sweep, but I was confident we would prevail.
List of teams I didn’t mind playing: Vancouver, Chicago, Nashville and San Jose.
The teams I didn’t/don’t want to see: Red Wings, Blues and Coyotes. Unfortunately two of the three I didn’t want to see, advanced. But, what the hell do I know.
The Blues and Kings will be an outstanding series to witness.
Really nice getting all the highlights in a row. Thank you for that.
So glad the monkeys off our backs, and this season is now officially a success. Just getting out of the first round means we have improved over the last 2 years. It’s all gravy from here on out, and the Kings look strong. Good times.
“Great Save by Tanev!” HAHAHA that will always bring a grin to my face.
Had Sedin and Kesler been healthy at the start this would have been a nail biting 7 game series. After watching Kopitar and Williams go down at the end of last season and LA beat the Sharks with Stoll suspended all I can say is I don’t given a damn how or why Vancouver lost and I must express my delight that Vancouver fans once again have to experience failure.
I dunno where this originated. I suppose it is modified to suit the current media target, but — while I consider it low-class to gloat over a fallen foe — I feel obliged to repeat it:
Little David was in his 5th grade class when the teacher asked
the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical
answers came up — fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.
David was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher
asked him about his father.
‘My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay bar and takes off all his clothes
in front of other men. Sometimes, if the offer is really good, he’ll go
out to the alley with some guy and make love with him for money.’
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set
the other children to work on some colouring, and took little David
aside to ask him, ‘Is that really true about your father?’
‘No,’ said David, ‘He plays for the Vancouver Canucks but I was
too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.’
(Observe the single quotation marks. I lifted this bodily from another blog site, so the person who posted it there probably did the same from HIS source. Something tells me it’s from Canada.)
I have heard that in different contexts and it still makes me laugh each time. Well done TJ
