Game 5 NHL Western Conf Playoffs Thread: April 22 @ Vancouver, 5p


Kings lead Vancouver 3-1 and have another chance to close out the improbable first-round upset tonight. Given the Dodgers' poor showing today and the disappointing Lakers showing the Lakers' shocking come-from-behind 2OT win, here's hoping the Kings can salvage at least one of three win the rubber match for LA teams this fine Sunday. If not, some of us may just throw ourselves into the fires of Mt. Doom.

Go, Kings!

Dodgers: nope. Lakers: yep. Kings: ?

Dusty Baker said...

Gin and tonic? yep.

Dusty Baker said...

And Angels lost!

Orel said...

Rob Fukuzaki is the new Craig Sager!

Orel said...

What channel is the Kings game on?

Hideo Nomo said...

Spank's gonna think he's watching Starz.

Dusty Baker said...

I have it on 725 - NBCSNHD at 5p.

Dusty Baker said...

Are we going to get a lineup, Marla?

Dusty Baker said...

I also have it on 737 Fox Sports West HD, Orel.

Spank said...

@ Nomo

haha! and i bet they are showing LOTR right now.

Spank said...

Game's on Prime Ticket in my hood so say's the Dish channel guide.

Spank said...

Excuse me. Fox Sports net ch.417

Spank said...

or west east whatever. i need a beer now.

Dusty Baker said...

I need a lineup now.

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty just came through with a gang of Tanqueray.

Shit is ON.

Neeebs * said...

Brats ready. Guiness in the fridge. plasma warming up.

Dusty Baker said...

NEEEBS! Was wondering if you'd be in the house or at your own house.

Neeebs * said...

Brown-Kopitar-Williams
King-Richards-Carter
Penis-Stoll-Lewis
Richardson-Fraser-Nolan

Scuderi-Doughty
Williams-Voynov
Greene-Martinez

Quick

Neeebs * said...

Games in Vancouver. I'd end up in a Canadien jail.

Dusty Baker said...

Again?

Dusty Baker said...

Of course, that little "vacation" in lockdown led to a better than average Flaming Menudos unplugged flute concept album, where other similar ones had failed the group.

Neeebs * said...

I shared a cell with an inmate named Michele. Thats a dude. Who knew.

Orel said...

a.k.a. the Bell Centre penalty box

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I didn't realize this thread was up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You wouldn't want to be in Couver if the Canucks lose. They'd rip the shirt off your back and set fire to it.

Cliff Beefpile said...

HA! Penis.

If only he actually went hard after the puck.

Neeebs * said...

I dont think theyd wait until it was off my back.

Neeebs * said...

Was that a typo?? Did I do that?

Dusty Baker said...

@Marla

Sorry...was trying to put up the signal that this thread was going live.

Let's do this!

Spank said...

*does this*

Cliff Beefpile said...

Vigneault said he's gonna counter the Kopitar line with a Kesler-Lapierre-Burrows match-up. Expect an overload of Canucks dickishness tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kesler tripped over that comment, Cliff.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Is Penner really on the first line? We'll see how that goes.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Also, in case anyone hasn't seen this...

Neeebs * said...

Penner is on the third line. Should be a healthy scratch.

Dusty Baker said...

Expect an overload of dickishness from me tonight, to.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh, okay, for some reason I thought the lineups were going vertically.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bruins beat the Caps. That one's going to Game 7.

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs said Quick Brown Penis King.

Coincidentally, one of his famous opening statement strategies.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Canucks starting early with their bitchiness.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I predict an early Kings goal.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kings need to make 'em pay on the PP.

Dusty Baker said...

Marla lays it down: early Kings goal is called.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Heh, Brown did lead with the elbow.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ugh, that was a crappy PP.

Dusty Baker said...

We call that a "Metta World," Cliff.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Balls.

Dusty Baker said...

Pucks.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Metta would be invaluable on the Kings.

Steve Sax said...

Wine for me tonight, my friends

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good PK.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck, another penalty?

Spank said...

Come on Kings. Score a goal before i split.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUCK

Spank said...

BOOOOO!! They couldn't clear that shit.

Steve Sax said...

Kings game is on in the Sax household. Other Saxes look sufficiently confused.

Go Kings!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This is gonna go to a Game 7, isn't it?

NicJ said...

Way to easy.

NicJ said...

I'm still predicting the kings to lose.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kings look like shit.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck these Canucks. I've had enough of their chippiness.

Spank said...

goddamn. Are they playing on half a rink?

Dusty Baker said...

It was all Kings for awhile now it looks like me picking on a 4th grader. What gives? Man up, Kings!

Steve Sax said...

I don't really understand this game bug I hateHateHATE the Canucks. I want them to riot tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

He was trying for the reach-around.

Spank said...

fuck.

Dusty Baker said...

GOD DAMMIT! ALmost had that.

NicJ said...

Stupid post

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

A couple more seconds and that would have been a goal.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm feeling like going MWP upside some fool's head.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I can't escape the feeling the Kings are either gonna win this series in 6 or lose it in 7. Fuck.

Metta World Spank said...

I heard a gang of Tanqueray did a drive by on the east side of Pasadena.

Dusty Baker said...

Sippin' on gin and juice....

Dusty Baker said...

Sonofabitch, that was there for the taking.

Metta World Spank said...

Oooo that was close.

Dusty Baker said...

It's about time for me to start making fun of the opposing team's uniforms and questioning their manhood.

Metta World Spank said...

Never thought i'd hear jungle Boogie at hockey game

Cliff Beefpile said...

Greene's good, but he takes some stupid-ass penalties. He was lucky to get away with that.

Metta World Spank said...

A lot of thought went into that canuck uni with a hockey stick front.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Certainly never thought I'd hear it where there were tens of thousands of screaming, pasty white white guys.

Dusty Baker said...

Way too many penalties. It's like watching a Raiders game.

Dusty Baker said...

Quick spending more time on his knees than Nancy Reagan on a film set.

Metta World Spank said...

so close.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Can Luongo go back in the net?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kings really aren't playing that poorly, I just fear one of those multiple game stretches where the offense just disappears.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They're getting chances, but nothing's getting past Schneider.

Fred's Brim said...

on the couch, Sean McDonough!

what number is Luc Robitaille again?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WTF, Voynov?

Fred's Brim said...

maybe that's not Sean McDonough, sounded kind of like him for a second

Fred's Brim said...

WTF is Boston Pizza? that doesn't even make sense!

Fred's Brim said...

wow nice stoning there

Cliff Beefpile said...

Huge save.

Paul said...

I think I shit my pants.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They should be giving Penner's salary to Quick.

Fred's Brim said...

like Dusty behind the bleachers in high school

Metta World Spank said...

Quick flurry but Quick stood his ground.

Cliff Beefpile said...

What the hell is Boston pizza? Chowdah in lieu of marinara?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

SCORE GOALS, IDJITS

Cliff Beefpile said...

Is King doing something that I'm not seeing to warrant the minutes he's getting? From what I've seen we could replace him with a box of hair and his line would be equally as effective.

Paul said...

Finally cleaned out the que, looked like I cremated a couple Samoans in that thing.

Paul said...

I don't see the kings pulling this one out but what do i know.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Don't talk like that, Paul!

Paul said...

I blame Neeebs for not making the trip up. I am sure they have calmed down about that Moose.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

And a finely coiffed Moose it was.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Power play!

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Kings, stuff it in!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

These are the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

Cliff Beefpile said...

.115% on the power play for the series.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GOAL!!!

Steve Sax said...

Woooot!

Dusty Baker said...

HELL YEAH!!!!!

Metta World Spank said...

GOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

WOOHOO!

Fred's Brim said...

brand new ball(puck?) game!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Now hurry up and score again before this goes to OT and I really start to shit my pants.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

No, that was H.I. McDonough.

Cliff Beefpile said...

How big is that save on Sedin's breakaway now...holy shit!

Dusty Baker said...

Feels like it's tipping back the way of the Kings, now. Come on, you Ring Wraiths!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I thought it was H.R. Puffnstuff

Dusty Baker said...

Remember Weathertop!

Cliff Beefpile said...

King even looks like Luongo...maybe that's why he bugs me.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sumbitch!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

These guys are starting to get some momentum going.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

King does look a lot like Luongo. I've never noticed that before.

Cliff Beefpile said...

YEAH! Fuck you, Burrows!

Dusty Baker said...

My nuts are halfway up my ass.

Paul said...

Plug your nose an blow dusty!

Fred's Brim said...

holy moly!

Cliff Beefpile said...

FUUUUUUUUUUUUCKK!

Metta World Spank said...

i shit myself.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

SO FUCKING CLOSE

Fred's Brim said...

it's good to see Debo still working

Dusty Baker said...

Hurry already. I have, like, 4 GRIMM eps to catch up on.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Overtime. I'll grab the Depends.

Paul said...

This can only end well!

Metta World Spank said...

Damn. OT

Fred's Brim said...

the mounties are making their way to their riot control positions

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

10 bucks says Penner scores the winner.

Neeebs * said...

We need to go all John Belushi in OT. LET'S DO IT!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

20 bucks says I open some wine.

Dusty Baker said...

(8 balls)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate overtime.

Fred's Brim said...

holy damn, there have been some great chances so far, starting with the Uribe-like whiff

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WE'RE MOVING ON UP!!!

Fred's Brim said...

THERE IT IS!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

KIIIIIIIIIINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

:)

Paul said...

Fuck yeah!!!

Fred's Brim said...

BURN, VANCOUVER, BURN!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck you, Clowe! Look who's still dancing!

Steve Sax said...

YEAHHHHHHH!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck yeah! Suck it Canucks! You already have "uck" in your name - go ahead and suck it!

Dusty Baker said...

I wanna see some riots goin' on.

Metta World Spank said...

Fucking great man

Cliff Beefpile said...

Who the hell's gonna win the next series...nobody's gonna score!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's gonna be a helluva lotta OTs, Cliffpile.

Neeebs * said...

I am a happy boy. Drinks on me.

Dusty Baker said...

(drinks)

Franklin Stubbs said...

(Drinks DelinO's drink)

Cliff Beefpile said...

Man! I can't believe this...3-0 in Vancouver!

Orel said...

Congrats, Kings and all you die-hards!

Neeebs * said...

Orel: I hereby dub you honorary Kings coach

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Orel's thinking, "I'm Sutter and I know it."

Orel said...

I can stand behind the bench and act useless!

Dusty Baker said...

So can Mike Brown.
