I'm a long time Kings fan. Living in northern Ontario, I don't get the coverage like all leafs/habs fans receive in this area which leads me to research on the internet anything KINGS! I do try to catch as many games streamed online as possible though! And with what I've seen, Los Angeles can pretty much play with anyone in this league! The jury is still out with the Pens cause face it, who can stop them right now? No one!
This 6 game winning streak has given fans hope of the promiss land, and the division lead! The one thing everyone predicted at the beginning of the year was a division championship.
With the season the Kings have had soo far, you wouldn't think they would be up there, but quietly, they have started to roll at the right time! Darryl Sutter has them playing great hockey! Carter and Richards! That's all I'm gonna say.
It's funny... I sometimes brag to my friends that we got Carter and Richards on my team. They quickly come to the for front saying, oh, they're party animals! Now living in LA will give them ample oppertunaty to party to the streets of la.
Hmmm.. Apparently they partied in Philly and they were winning, so why change a good thing right? I'm pretty sure, as I have, grown up! They are mature enough players to know what is important. They won at the Junion levelthey won at the AHL level, now it's only a matter of time till they win at the NHL level. I think Lombardi saved his job, although I never thought his job shoulda been in jeopardy. We'd still be bottom dwelling if we didn't
We'd have Marc Crawford behind the bench, Dan Cloutier in the pipes, and all the players traded here that don't want to be here.
I know Quick won't win the vezina, but damn! He will def. be a candidate! And a huge raise is on the way. If I'm a team in a playoffs spot, I'm looking at the standings very close because I don't think anyone would want to face the Kings with the way they're playing right now!
Basically put, The Los Angeles Kings have been playing playoff hockey since the All-Star break.
