The King And The Pawn Go Back In The Same Box: Kings @ Canucks

You do that, you go to the box, you know. Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know. And then you get free.

T-minus four games remaining...

I'm really only a fan of two sports teams on Earth and, in the span of a single weekend, the one that has to tank rolls out two improbable wins and the one that needs to win or it'll get relegated out of the league finds a new way to lose.

I blame myself.

Anyway, the race for the #1 pick is basically gone, so the goal of a top three pick is the new goal. They will, however, need to start losing in regulation which is a sentence I have never written so hooray for new things.

Higgins is out (probably), Baert is out (probably) but they welcome Virts and Dorsett (pause for laughter) back into the top nine and Miller rotates back in between the pipes.

For Los Angeles...meh. They can take a step closer to their first division crown in a quarter century with a win, but they haven't been able to beat anyone other than the bad Western Canadian teams in their past ten and the team chasing them down for the Pacific crown can't beat Vancouver so...yeah, meh. The Central is going to devour them all.

Fearless Prediction

You know you want the loss as much as I do. Now stop pointing fingers, kneel down and pray with me.

3-2 Kings. Brown falls down. Lucic does nothing but gesticulate. But the Ice Girls...ah Los Angeles, you never fail to disappoint humanity.
