Writing this bad boy on the run, hungry and distracted.
Drew is out. No news other than it’s not serious which is seriously a relief.
Andrew Campbell whose name I have been hearing since before the Terry Murray days (I think) is up. And from what I read from the Monarchs’ captain, he is way, way up. Hope the kid can relax because this game may get chippy.
Our Kings are in. 3rd in the West and facing either Jose or the other team down the interstate. I want the other team and perhaps they wish to oblige after last night’s loss. As a wise Kings fan said to me yesterday, it could be the first time in NHL history a team could play 7 home games in a playoff round. The fuckers have had our number this season. Either of the imps, north or south, will be a good challenge and fun to boot.
The Canucks are what we have seen. No identity. Still the same assholes we are used to, except they allegedly dive less and suck more. Hopefully our boys take care of the BC boys and don’t take their opponents lightly.
Darryl Sutter was particularly surly (not to be confused with Surly) today:
On Drew Doughty’s status:
He’s day-to-day. We have lots of guys who are day-to-day. [Reporter: So does that make him a game-time decision for tonight?] That makes it none of your business. That’s a fact. Why do you want to ask that question in April? You could ask it in October and you’d get the same answer. So why would you ask it in April?
Who asked that question? Heh.
If the Kings win, are the Canucks eliminated? It feels like they have been eliminated since they fired AV.
Marian Gaborik will have a big game.
Not a bad pregame considering I wrote it on my phone between bites of sushi during a late lunch, work break.
