I didn’t see the game tonight. I heard we lost in a shootout. I heard we dominated but just couldn’t finish our chances. I heard a lot of good things about the way we played. I also heard lies.

People I used to think were my friend are claiming Jonathan Quick got hurt. Used to be friends because true friends don’t lie in such ways. This stupid lie is now spreading throughout social media too. Guess people have nothing better to do. Whatever the reason, it’s not funny. Jonathan Quick is not injured.

I suggest you steer clear of these lies. When the liars lie as such, it’s best to ignore them. If they are anything like those I used to call friends, they will try to sound real sincere about it, even claim the exact time of the game it occurred and what the fabricated injury is. That just means they have been practicing their lies. Premeditation. It makes them even bigger liars. I don’t befriend such types. You shouldn’t either. If they claim they have a video of it, you already know they don’t and they are liars so why even indulge them?

Lies like this can go viral just because Jonathan Quick is Jonathan Quick. Don’t be surprised if the media starts making the same claims. They aren’t like you and me. They are easily fooled. Remember Kovalchuk to the Kings? Doughty’s agreement in principle?

Jon Rosen, who I thought was cool, clearly isn’t because he has already bought into the lies. That’s a shame. He’s going to feel really stupid when he realizes he has been duped but you won’t. Because you haven’t been. You’re smart.

If your former friends become insistent, you have a few options.

First, you can seek a restraining order. If the judge asks you what the legal basis for it is, tell him or her the truth. “My stupid friends claim Jonathan Quick was injured in Tuesday night’s game against Buffalo. They are saying this just to harass me.” Don’t take no for an answer. Remind the judge that (a) you are a citizen (b) you pay taxes and (c) you’re not leaving there until you get your restraining order. If the judge calls the bailiff to arrest you, leave there. Stupid judge probably doesn’t know anything about hockey.

Second, you can call the local police department. I just got off the phone with them. They claimed there was nothing they could do. I am going to have my wife call in about five minutes, screaming for help. That should get them here in person. Face to face discussions are best.

Third, you can just block their number. If they live with you, like your wife or husband, might as well file for divorce. If they are willing to tell lies like this, can infidelity and cross-dressing be that far behind?

I just had an ex friend text me. The jerk wrote, “Asshole, he really got hurt! It’s his groin! Why are you being so dense?” I sent him a text back, “You’re just a stupid liar spreading other people’s lies.” I won’t even bother telling you his reply. He has clearly lost his mind.

I have been thinking that Darryl Sutter may start playing Ben Scrivens more because Quick has been struggling a bit. In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Scrivens play the next few games, at least. That’s just because Ben has to get some games in. That’s the only reason.

That’s it I guess. Starting tomorrow, it’s time to start making some new friends. Friends that don’t lie.
