GDB 25: Regicide at 8:30

It seems that at least one King is ready to rumble tonight. But let’s be honest, the rest of his cohorts ain’t what they used to be, are they? What was that year they weren’t terrible... ‘93? Yeah, then. The Oil aren’t exactly blinding citizens of the Nation with their brilliance either but what the hell -- it’s Friday and just like 10 gamblers playing VLTs, someone has to win tonight.

Gagner – out. He’s taken a blow to the head and is going to sit out. Pouliot will take his spot on KidLine 2.0 with Cogliano and the new hotness Rob Schremp. Perhaps the Schrempian One can make Pouliot score again and shock the hell out of both members of the M-A Pouliot fan club.

Speaking of making a zero look like a hero, what is the deal with the LaBarbera being the real deal against the Oil and only the Oil? This goof has a 4-6-1 record this season with a sparkling 1-3-1 in the past six starts. Against the Oil he is a perfect 4-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA. Buh? Zuh? SNUH? Impossibly the Kings are 4-1-1 in their last six games vs the Oilers and 2-0-2 in the last four in LA.

Uh, what? That don’t make no sense. What does make sense is running a few through on a Friday night and watching some hockey.

Right, Elvis Stormtrooper?

Right.

To be fair though, I think there is more people at this mediocre JL meeting then there is at the Staples Center.

No wonder no one goes to Kings games...So far I've seen commercials for the Lakers, NCAA football, and NCAA women's basketball, but nothing for the Kings.

Sorry Travis. Between the first and second intermission, I jammed my toes and cracked my shin on some stairs. I'm now on ice and drugs. So I'm hoping the 4 goals since the intermission are as a result of the drugs, and I'm just hallucinating...

Anyways, Garon is letting out rebound after rebound...It's pretty poor. Defence isn't helping him out. Lots of point-blank shots by the Kings. You're not missing much it seems.

So, we finally figured out how to come out and have a strong first period. But now we have a problem with keeping the momentum up and finishing the game. Awesome. If it's not one thing it's the other!

Travis, what I'm seeing is:

Shremp is the real deal. He's feeding center beautifully, fighting for pucks, etc. Garon's cold. He's giving up rebounds, losing track of the puck, and giving up a couple of softies.

Well, if tickets weren't going for about 300 a piece then I would. And that also just happens to be the day I come back to God's City to celebrate the birthday of the Jesus. And by God's city I mean Edmonton.
