Dude has a serious problem then because he had last year as well too.

Had to work late... Just finished watching the game.

So happy with the game,
So pissed I wasn't there.

Games like these are why I bought season seats. Damn.

Only other game I missed this year was the 2nd home game, the big, exciting win over San Jose. If only I could go back in time and miss the first Phoenix game and the Montreal one instead...

Oh well, listen to me complaining.

Frolov was a beast! its frustrating watching Brown, Smyth and Kopi all play well individually but not able to put it together as a line.

Clune was worth the wait.

**** Blunden.

I never, ever use this 'expression', but Mason deserved it; lulz.

I'm still a genius for Modin.

Doughty's goal was my favorite.

I use to think I was twisted, but my girlfriend laughed her ass off at the end of the game when Jones high sticked Umberger. She insisted we watch the play 7 times.

I want Modin-Handzus-Frolov as a playoff line.

Doughty/Scuderi is refreshing.

Stupid Blue Jackets.

I'm going to bed.

**** Chicago.

Took this from the Columbus GDT, but if its true I think it's the definition of getting a player for nothing.

I asked Matt Greene how much water was crushed tonight at the Q & A after the game so, yeah, I feel pretty good about tonight.

How did we get Modin for nothing? We dont have to play Ivan on the 4th and we get experience. Awesome

That'd be the most glorious 7th round pick to give up if that meant the Kings won the Stanley Cup.

Reminds me of the conditional 3rd the Ducks receive from the Flyers from the Pronger trade. They only get it if the Flyers win the Stanley Cup.

We gave him up because what else were we going to do with him? They'd probably rather play prospects then keep around Modin for another month. We obviously weren't going to resign the guy when he's played maybe 10-15 games in the past 3 seasons making 3.25M a year. You're lucky when you wake up in the morning and hear that Modin actually wasn't injured in practice or on the way to the ice rink for once. I'm surprised he still has legs at this point to be honest. I like the guy, but boy was he a horrible contract.

Doughty tripping over himself, then getting it from the bench needs to be mentioned

So they get the last pick in the draft if we win the Cup? Deal.

They were that desperate to not have to pay him for 20 more games

Bingo. For those watching the game, were the Kings really that good? Or were Columbus just THAT bad?

i think it was both, hence the 6-0 final score. the kings were definitely better tonight, right from the opening faceoff. passes were crisp, the intensity level was there, and they were hungry for the net and decisive with the puck. and columbus is definitely having a rough season. they were tentative, disorganized on defense, and ineffective on attack. but still, despite the fact that columbus really didn't show up for the game, i'm very encouraged by how the kings played. i think they played well enough to have beaten montreal or nashville, if they had brought that kind of effort against those two teams.

A good example of the whole game was the Doughty goal. Doughty went in deep on the 4 on 4 to support the two Kings players down low. His position was covered as required. Away from the puck, he went behind the net, then kind of skated backwards into the slot. Columbus' player completely missed his assignment, and Drew was left wide open to blast the puck from the most glorious place on the ice....dead center, about 15 feet from the goal line.

Kings played it perfectly, and Columbus played it all wrong. Pretty much the story of the game all night.

LOTS of calls on Columbus that first period, and none on the Kings. Deservedly so on both counts, too. I didn't see any missed calls against the Kings in that period, and few if any in the 2nd.

Well it figures I live in Fountain Valley and our damn Time Warner Cable has been out since 9:00 AM Monday and I missed the game. Since we have Cable, Internet, and Telephone all with Time Warner the family had nothing to do but talk to each other. It was one of the most enjoyable evenings with the family in months. Even my 14 year old daughter came out of hiding and spent time with dad.

i was thinking of that play as well. great example, i totally agree. columbus was crap last night, but the kings were making plays and would have competed well against any team.

"The Jackets made ill-advised pinches on defense, lost board battles, gave the Kings acres of open ice and continued a parade to the penalty box. They were outshot 26-5 through two periods and 35-11 overall, avoiding the franchise record for fewest shot by one.

If that weren't bad enough, they watched former Jacket Fredrik Modin -- dealt to the Kings last week for a seventh-round conditional pick add a goal and an assist.

Before the game, Modin actually said it was a tough decision to waive his no-trade clause with a straight face."
