Hornqvist out of the blue, rushed Mtichell and sort of crosschecked him in the side while facewashing him kinda thing going on. So without any hesitation, Mitchell just insta dropped the gloves and ragdolled him
that game suxed ,it was my birthday and my oldest son got premiere seats for like 30 bucks,did you know they have their own entrance, and we scored first then it was all down hill....been to a lot of games on my birthday over the years but this one was the worst because it looked like the season was falling apart
Fun fact for tonight that old timers will appreciate:
"In 1977 the Kings won four straight road games, and it would have counted as a 4-0 road trip, but a reschedule of a game that was snowed out (vs. Buffalo) was tacked on as the (5th) game of the trip. It was also the third game the Kings played in three nights, and Buffalo won, 7-2."
Outstanding way to end a road trip. 8 points, all in regulation against Western Conference opponents. I can’t help but go back to the first game of the road trip, in Detroit, down 1-0 and not really in the game … having lost a couple of recent games you had to feel the risk of another slump creeping in … THAT save Quick came up with robbing Kronwall on a back-door play. What a momentum changer that turned out to be. Helped us turn around that game, helped stave off another slump perhaps. I remember talking to friend about that save right after the game. As a turning point. 4 games and 8 points later. How huge does that save look now.
I wasn’t too impressed with Penner at first, but you can see the chemistry developing and what a joy it is. It looks like Kopi is the biggest benefitiary of Penner’s arrival. He’s getting more room out there it seems. Love it.
The 3rd line that started the season so well is back together and really firing, the 4th line does it’s job too … the Stoll line needs to improve a bit. At least in my opinion.
