Cold Kings, Hot Preds. Nerves, you betcha. This is the official clinch game. Don't give me that garbage about Calgary needing to lose, they are done. Like Anthony Bordain said, "They are dead, their just too stupid to realize it yet." Now comes the fight for seeding.
Like I have said, I'm not afraid of Chicago, or Vancouver, or Phoenix, SJS I have a little worry about. Frankly, Detroit and Nashville WCF would be a phenominal final simply because of the Hornqvist element. Nashville finally has a guy like Hornqvist who's a game changer.
Yes, but he's not NHL experienced. He won't be used to the style of play here. Posted via Mobile Device
He played for the Kings when they opened the season overseas, in 2007 against the Ducks. He was the winning goalie.
He has been in the ahl because Quick has been so good, they had the luxury of leaving him there.
I would have rather faced their backup for this year, rather than Bernier.
I watched the game. He was incredible.

remember life is a selffullfilling deal. we will win!!!! let's nail the season series to the wall like we do with the BJs.
also blatently taken from their GDT, but it made me laugh.....
Ha, love that song, its been my ringtone since I got my new phone.
Well, that and the tune from Robot Unicorn Attack.
Also, I hate spring games, wearing a dark jersey outside when not used to 75 degree weather yet = blahh.
Too many people don't really understand the stats they're looking at or only look at the most simplistic stats .... so it is a pretty good question. Getting into advanced stats loses quite a few people.
Back when I was in junior high our favorite baseball team, the Pirates, opened with a loss and the Candyman allowed something like three earned runs in three innings. So I joked about his 9 ERA. My friend kept saying "no, it's per game!" He wouldn't believe me when I explained it was per nine inning game and they'd divide the innings pitched by nine and then use that number to divide the earned runs. (Basically "normalizing" the runs to a nine inning game. Although I hadn't heard the word back then.) I don't know if he ever got it. I suppose he did, he was a smart guy. He just had never thought about it. Now that I think about it again, I suppose they have to use outs, instead of innings, as you can have 2 and 2/3 of an inning pitched, etc.
