Dec 21st: Kings v. BJs

Unbelievable. Un-fucking-believable. I don't know who to be madder at: the refs or the Kings? Both Koharski and the other ref made questionable decisions that had a HUGE impact on the game. Yet, I hate using the excuse that the refs are the reason why we lost. Of course they didn't but they sure did have an impact on the momentum.

The Kings had 7 power play chances and only scored one power play goal. We may have at least one PPG in 9 of the last 10 games (or something similar) but that stat doesn't mean anything if we can't bury a team when they give us 5, 6, 7 chances in a game!

I'm also livid at the entire Kings team because they came out in the third period needing to play with burning intensity after getting shafted at the end of the second period, but instead they came out and played in their defensive end for what seemed like half the period. I couldn't understand why it took them so long to get rolling in the third. LaBarbera had an amazing game tonight and it's a shame that he didn't get a shutout because he deserved it.

This game is the story of our season.

I don't even know what to say anymore. Why do I love a losing team?? ARGH! How frustrating!!!

I think my only happiness in this post is that you typed "BJs" instead of "Blue Jackets." =)

You know what sucks? Is that it's really difficult to podcast and blog about the Kings now because everything sounds the fucking same. The Kings always come into the 3rd period with about as much passion as a lyricist for NSYNC. They are never tough. They are poorly coached. If we're going to say something about the Kings that hasn't been said, the Kings need to fire the coach or do something unprecedented....WIN.

I agree, nice mention of the "BJs"..

I tried to write a gameday preview post and realized that all of my previews are redundant. Earlier this season I was writing about Columbus and thought, "Wait, they're the BJs...tee hee hee." I'm so juvenile, but I'm glad you appreciate it.

And why haven't we called up Purcell? I'm convinced that DL is delaying Purcell's promotion because he doesn't want Crow to ruin him.

Purcell needs to bulk up a bit more...

Give him a full year in the AHL before you call him up. He can win the Rookie of the Year and make the roster next season (it's always about NEXT season)...

(it's always about NEXT season)...

Always!

Those refs really were ridiculous...it was pathetic. I don't see how we won that game. We shouldn't have.

CKim said...

It's the same shit, different day. I'm getting restless.

Bethany, thanks for that. But KingsCast and kms, does that mean there's hope? What the hell.

KingsCast - You're absolutely right, which has caused me to want to follow our prospects on Team Canada (and Sweden). And I might devote one day a week to Manchester or something.

Bethany: Thanks...yeah that game was really weird and so frustrating to watch.

ckim: one day a week to Manchester?? Are you even able to listen to their games let along watch them? ;)
