KIngs Sweep Roadtrip


What a weekend for the Kings with two comeback wins in Boston and New Jersey.
Deja vu in Boston where the Kings squeaked out a 3-2 victory in the shootout.  Quick outplayed his Team USA teammate Tim Thomas for the second time in two weeks.  Got a scare when Mark Stuart absolutely destroyed Anze with an open-ice check (Thanks Petey).  But Simmer stepped right in and took care of business; Stuart broke a finger during the fight.  Kopi got the last laugh with the game-tying goal and a 'Forsberg-esque Deke' in the shootout.  Rich Hammond's Recap

No Bob Miller & Jim Fox on Sunday but caught the game on DirecTV's Center Ice.  Had to settle for New Jersey's broadcast with Chico & Dano.  No seriously.  Poor Chico didn't know a single Kings player. The Devils game was a snoozer...at least to start.  Seemed like the Kings just wanted to go home.  The first couple goals given up by Brodeur were two I'm sure he'd love to have back.  I could have sworn Doughty's goal deflected off Smyth but who cares...Hammond's Recap

Kopi is back.  Quick received the game's First Star in the final three games of the trip.  Can't wait to welcome the boys back to Staples Center tomorrow night after one of the most successful roadtrips in recent memory.

I leave you with Kopitar's 'Forsberg-esque Deke.'
