Whenever I see LAKINGS.COM the first word that comes to LACKINGS. That would be a fitting word for these Kings, who were completely bombing. However they just finished a short 2-game road trip in Chicago and Winnipeg, beating the Hawks 2-0 and losing 1-0 to the Jets. They are now 4-0-2 in their last 6 after going 1-6-0 in the 7 games

prior to that. They are showing signs of turning it around. They are now in 8th spot in the West, 1 point ahead of Dallas, Calgary and Colorado.

QUOTE

“Then Game 7 was crazy. I went with a girlfriend of mine whose a die-hard fan and she was having a hard time with it, we were both so stressed about it. Then we rolled a few cars after, so we got it out.”

Cobie Smulders is awesome.
