Post-Game 53 Thread: Spanksmas Miracle!

DODGERS 6, ROCKIES 2

Who would believe that after a 5-game-skid, the Dodgers would still have the best record in baseball. Aaron Harang, who started the streak back in LA, was the stopper today, with a good, solid offensive and defensive game to back him up.

Since the Dodgers were nice enough to bring us home a win, this is your Kings-Devils Game 2 thread! Double-check the curvature on those sticks, everyone.

Devils power play....

Dusty Baker said...

Kings on their heels early.

But almost a shorthanded goal!

Orel said...

Shorthanded attempt on goal blocked by Brodeur!

Dusty Baker said...

That one commentator sounds like the newscaster Brian Williams.

Franklin Stubbs said...

The Kings penalty kill has been pretty damn good.

Dusty Baker said...

(repuckers)

Orel said...

WOOOOO!

Dusty Baker said...

Oh hell yeah!!!!

Orel said...

Doughty makes it 1-0 Kings!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Woot!

Orel said...

Another PP for the Devils.

Dusty Baker said...

That seemed like an entirely needless penalty to take for the Kings. Much as I support random violent acts on unsportsmanlike conduct.

Orel said...

Much like their first penalty.

Dusty Baker said...

Saved by Quick!!!

Orel said...

whew

Orel said...

damn

Dusty Baker said...

Almost another one on a breakaway!

Orel said...

Hey, NBA playoffs on too!

Franklin Stubbs said...

N...B...A?

Orel said...

Jonathan Quick has balls of steel.

Orel said...

DAMN! So close!

Steve Sax said...

Cubs up 1-0 on the Giants through 5, but that won't hold up.

Dusty Baker said...

What is basket ball?

Dusty Baker said...

Oh you can stick that little devil up your ass
You can stick that little devil up your ass
You can stick that little devil
Stick that little devil
Stick that little devil up your ass!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Whooooo the fuck are...wait, that's not it.

Orel said...

End of the first!

Dusty Baker said...

I knew you might busy out with that, Stubbs! Good work.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jints tie it up in the 6th with a bases-loaded-walk off Garza

Dusty Baker said...

^bust

Steve Sax said...

Giants take 2-1 lead, B6

Orel said...

One of these has got to land.

Orel said...

awww damn

Orel said...

"You can sense that Los Angeles is starting reel this thing in." Really?

Dusty Baker said...

Reely?

Dusty Baker said...

Again LA on their heels to start a period.

Orel said...

Kings power play!

Dusty Baker said...

A THIRD stupid penalty on Kings.

Good thing we're so good at defending these. Disaster averted.

Dusty Baker said...

Stick to the face. Nice!

Franklin Stubbs said...

End of 2, and my nerves could use some Geico.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm too nervous to drink heavily.

Dusty Baker said...

Our nervousness was well founded. 1-1 now.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm also drinking heavily now. And sniffing glue.

Dusty Baker said...

Beer drinkin breath stinkin sniffin glue

Orel said...

This is tense.

Orel said...

Kings power play!

Orel said...

Now 4 on 4.

Franklin Stubbs said...

squeaky bum time!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Bring the OT.

Orel said...

It's like they want to play four periods. Cue LeBron joke.

Orel said...

@jillpainter: "First time in 61 years Games 1 and 2 go to overtime in the Stanley Cup Final."

Orel said...

Here we go!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Holy shit, Marty.

Orel said...

Kings with a flurry of shots of goal but can't score.

Orel said...

Another one....

Orel said...

So close! The Devils with a few shots of their own.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Was that a "Now things are really...weird" call?

Orel said...

Man, and I thought baseball made me drink.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jaysus.

Orel said...

This is a battle of the goaltenders.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Quick is effing nails right now.

Orel said...

Unfortunately so is Brodeur.

Orel said...

They should just clear everyone off the ice and let Quick and Brodeur arm wrestle for it.

Orel said...

KINGS WIN!

Fred's Brim said...

wow

Franklin Stubbs said...

KINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Orel said...

Clean. Fast. Wow.

Orel said...

Just like they drew it up!

Fred's Brim said...

soft goal, Marty

Orel said...

So many bodies in front of him. How does he track the puck?

Dusty Baker said...

Holy fuckin shit!!!!!

Orel said...

Next game is Monday at Staples Center!

Dusty Baker said...

My Monday is all planned out now.

Orel said...

Darryl Sutter is not a scintillating interview.

Orel said...

A rare Adrian Beltre error allows the Angels to score in the 6th.

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

Go Kopidor!

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers lead still at four

Spank LeBum said...

Spanksmas indeed. Kings are on a major roll. See you all tomorrow in Mondays game threads. Should be a good evening.
