Kings Take Game One. Enjoy It. Forget It Tomorrow. There Is Work To Be Done.
Justin Williams’ presence of mind. Justin Williams’ pass.
Did it get you on your feet?
Anze Kopitar’s patience. Anze Kopitar’s deke. Anze Kopitar’s goal.
You screamed. You raised your arms. You thanked the Hockey Gods.
I thanked them too.
We heard about their fourth line…a lot. Now, they get to see ours. Colin Fraser scored the first goal. Jordan Nolan was in beast mode. Did that put a big smile on your face?
I was smiling too.
Jarret Stoll. 90% on the faceoffs. Did you “wow” when he looked unbeatable?
I did too.
You know Jonathan Quick is a great goalie. You loved watching him be a great goalie tonight?
I loved it too.
We played as a team, 12 forwards, 6 defensemen, every line playing the same game, four lines rolling, we still have a lot of room for improvement and we won. Does that get you excited?
I am excited too.
That is Surly. Cool, right?
I think so too.
Experience the experience. Love that we have taken game one. Know that we are not done. We are doing this to raise the Stanley Cup.
