Kings (6-3-0-0) vs. Los Angeles Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (3-4-1-0)

First, let me say I still can't believe we lost to the Flames the other night. We should have had that one. Anyway, the game's about to start, so let's get quackin'. Sorry. No really, that was lame. We've got LaBarbera in goal. The Ducks have Ilya Bryzgalov. Great name, never heard of him. Giguere skated warmups but will backup, in a game this important that has to mean he isn't 100%. Heh. Tim Gleason looks like a Hobbit. A cute, young Hobbit, but a Hobbit nonetheless. Stromotion? WTF, and I mean that in a good way. We've come a long way since the glow puck, nice to see technology used for good instead of evil. That is trippy, I'm going to need to find a link to a description of that. Words fail me. Our PP is only 17th in the league, not the stuff of championships. The Ducks penalty kill is dead last in the league, so maybe we can work something out tonight to get out PP moving.

Teemu Selanne (I've always loved him, sue me) takes a penalty and our vaunted PP hits the ice. We don't score.

Now we score, now we don't! We do, but it's redirected by a high stick and it's waved off immediately.

NOW we finally score! 5 on 3, it's about freaking time. Right off the faceoff, Parros takes a penalty for high sticking. Now all he needs is a goal and an assist and he has another Gordie Howe hat trick.

Kings 1, Ducks 0 at the end of the first.

2nd period underway. Nashville Predators are now 8-0-0-0. What's up with the Preddies?

On the other hand, Pittsburgh lost tonight and they are now 0-5-4-0. Ouch. Poor Pens. Don't wish a start like that on anyone.

LaBarbera just robbed the Ducks. Make this guy a starter, please.

Eeek! Gleason just got high-sticked and injured! Sorry about the Hobbit crack!

Okay, apparently Gleason is okay. Thank you hockey Gods.

Le Luc scores and I'm probably going to bed at this point. We're winning. Damn, I'm lame.

So LaBarbera isn't going to get the shutout. We still won, 3-1. Give this guy the starting job already!

The Ducks just can't seem to win at Staples. I personally don't have a problem with that. Also, apparently we have another seven games with them this season, thanks to the league's scheduling weasels. Hopefully we can rack up some major points against them.

7-2. Not bad, not bad at all.
