It's Like a Simile, or Something

The Kings opened up the game last night by giving up 2 goals. That makes sense.

They then rallied and outplayed the Flames for a period and a half, yet still trailed 3-1. That’s not surprising.

Dustin Brown played wonderful, continuing his excellent play of late; then he got hurt. That’s perfect.

The Kings then took the lead, aided by their excellent power play and the wondrous creative skills of Alex Frolov. That’s awesome.

Frolov then immediately took a penalty and the Flames scored. That sucks.

Then, when the game was on the line and no mistake could be afforded, Brian Willsie took a penalty. That’s just classic.*

Then, the Kings’ penalty kill was terrible and the Flames took the lead. That’s boilerplate.

Then, the Kings lost. That’s typical.

So, the Kings trailed early, outplayed a playoff-caliber team for at least a period, clawed their way back to take the lead, and then immediately gave up the lead and ultimately lost the game. Yep, that pretty much covers this season.

*I got a text message right after he took that penalty from my brother, who wrote, “Brian Willsie is the worst person in the entire world.” Yep, pretty much. Also, since this is italicized and nobody reads this, may I just say that Jeff Giuliano looks like a birth defect. It's okay, you can agree with me. Just italicize your nod.

I as pretty impressed by the Kings last night...at least, whenever they were in the offensive end.

When your kids get a bit older (and everyone figures out what the defensive end looks like) LA will have a formidable squad.

Willsie knew he lost the game right when the whistle blew. I had so much hope...until that damn whistle.

You failed to mention how much Stuart sucks at life.

I love Brad Stuart because the ONLY times he fucks up is when it will lead to a goal for the other team. I think he's turned the puck over 20 times this season, and it's directly led to 20 goals. He did a good job on that breakaway to prevent Labarbera from getting embarrassed, though.

I'm not saying he doesn't have his uses, like washing my car, but he makes me nervous whenever he has the puck. This whole team stresses me out.
