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?
