NHL Playoffs Game Thread: Blues @ Kings, 7p

I don't know anything about hockey, but I'm still cheering for the Kings. Kings up 2-0 in their series, but AccuScore (via ESPN) gives us a 54% 46% chance of winning tonight. Must be the starting pitcher we've got this evening, I assume.

Watch out for that second line, St. Louis!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Everyone knows that Kathy Lee Crosby was the brains of that operation.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Cubs can sweep the Dodgers if it means wins for the Kings tonight and Sunday.

Hideo Nomo said...

No.

Eric Karros said...

@Stubbs - I agree, Crosby rules!

Wait, are we talking about the NHL or That's Incredible?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Power play!

Eric Karros said...

I guess it's official - I'm more active on hockey game threads than Dodger threads.

*hangs head in shame*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Kings seem to play better when the other team has the power play.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I think Cathy Lee could probably take Sid when the gloves come off.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This isn't quite like how Monday's game went.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WILLIAMS SCORES!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kings lead 1-0 at first intermission.

Steve Sax said...

I was more of a Fran Tarkenton fan.

Orel said...

Should the Kings lose a game or two so Metta World Peace finishes serving his suspension?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DAMMIT

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WHAT??!? Kings get another goal!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Another power play for the Kings.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RICHARDS WITH THE SCORE!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Not to take anything away from Tarkenton, but after a career's worth of old-school NFL hits, was he really on top of his game in the studio? I think the product speaks for itself.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kings lead Blues 3-1 at second intermission.

Also, Mariano Rivera has a torn ACL and will be done for the season.

Spank Lapierre said...

Also,Mark Cuban has a sad.

NicJ said...

I'd like to thank YES for the footage of Mo fucking up his knee. Is the last image of Rivera going to be him being carted off the field on the John Deere wagon.

sad.

(a little funny too)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shit, another Stewart goal. 3-2 Kings in the third.

NicJ said...

Chris Broussard has two goals tonight.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Mo seems like a decent enough guy, but lord help up, here comes the hagiography.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Something tells me nobody will be making "Mariano Rivera is a saint" t-shirts.

NicJ said...

NBC announcers seem very pro Blues.

NicJ said...

Suck it NBCSports!!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Doughty with another goal!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Another goal for the Kings, I mean.

Steve Sax said...

One minute left!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

KINGS WIN! 3-0! 3-0!

Steve Sax said...

Boom! Wow, Kings win 4-2

NicJ said...

Go Kings Go!!

Steve Sax said...

Oh man, I just saw the Rivera injury. That sucks.

I feel bad for Mariano.

Steve Sax said...

They should retire his number.

Alex said...

^

That's how He goes out?

Alex said...

my arrow was for the comment before.

NOW no one can wear #42.

Steve Sax said...

But seriously, that sucks.

Steve Sax said...

I just saw that ESPN "It's not crazy, it's just sports" commercial with the guy named Michael Jordan. Pretty good.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yes, it does in fact, suck.

Dude is one of the best ever, just not looking forward to being beaten about the head and shoulders with that fact.

Steve Sax said...

P&G, on the other hand, is looking forward to the free head and shoulders publicity.

Steve Sax said...

Arizona loses! And Bryce Harper, who hit the GWRBI, also got called out on appeal after failing to touch first base (a fact that eagle eye manager Kirk Gibson caught). Cool!

Dusty Baker said...

Looking forward to the free head, eh?

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers have a 4.5 game lead on the second-place division team. Just like the Rangers.

I am getting set for profound disappointment.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kings WIN!!! And for sure I'm gonna lose my voice tomorrow. That was awesome! Staples was loud tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Cliffy - How many times did you shout "SCORE, PENIS, SCORE" when Penner took the ice?

Cliff Beefpile said...

@MLASC - I yell "PENIS!" countless times during a game as it is. People around me think I have tourettes.

Side note, there was a special message from Magic Johnson during the game. On the jumbotron, he said, "Everyone in Los Angeles is behind you. Lakers fans, Clippers fans, and Dodgers fans are all behind you. Go Kings!". The Ducks and Angels were noticeably absent from his short pep talk. He was also wearing a Dodger jersey. :D

Fred's Brim said...

I hope the Kings and Caps play in the finals so we can see Penner and Semin all over the ice

Dusty Baker said...

Very cool, Cliff. Thanks for reporting on that.
