Wow.. So Westgarth really is playing? He better kick someone's ass but he won't, hasn't all season. I didn't think the Kings could have found a worse "enforcer" than Ivanans but they did with Kevin "I'll punch you in the gut" Westgarth. Maybe he is a playoff juggernaut?
From Sharks board, officials. If you have never checked out the ref thread on the Sharks board, you should.
Brad "Doctor" Watson #23
Greg Kimmerly #18
Watson is senior. Watson is an above average skater, Kimmerly is average. Expect a moderate to high call level as Watson traditionally has been one of the more aggressive playoff callers. This is Kimmerly's first playoff appearance in several years. Kimmerly is noted for being aggressive on safety calls (boarding, elbowing, headshots) when league directives are sent out. We should learn if there has been a pre-playoff directive by watching Kimmerly.
I don't understand why Murray thinks because the Sharks are gonna play physical that Westgarth is a good option. Yes, he's a big guy, but he doesn't hit a lot. He doesn't do well on the boards and behind the net.
Should have just played Harrold.
At least Penner and Brown get to play together for once.
My adult league team went 11-0 last season and lost our first playoff game, eliminating us from the tournament. We had all the same players, same goalie, same everything. We came out flat and the other team just wanted it more.
Anything can happen.
Good luck tonight, boys. Make us proud.
Go Kings Go!
