Kings/Preds: Fake Live Blogging Bullets

  • Watching on tape-delay.
  • I hate those moustaches. I don't care if it's for a good cause. It can't help a team's confidence to look like a bunch of porn actors. 
  • Bernier got run over. Penalty, good. 
  • At least they got a shot off. Must shoot low on giant goalie. That's my theory.
  • Oh no. Two man advantage. Penalty Jarred Smithson, former King pick. 
  • Martinez! Nice decoy by Penner, too. No point for him, but Penner made that possible.
  • Goal by Ron Jeremy Doughty! Hammond did say the defense has to score more. 
  • Clifford - StollParse is a line tonight. I like that. (Assists by Clifford and Stoll on that goal). 
  • Clifford - Loktionov - Parse would be better. 
  • Fox: "Kopitar doesn't have a point. Good news." Agreed. He can't do it all. 
  • Doughty on Patric Hornqvist. Drew going for a Gordie Howe hat trick? His energy is good tonight. 
  • Nashville goal. Hmm. Bouncing puck. I don't know who to blame on that one. 
  • Jack Johnson end to end. I hope he keeps this up all season. Almost snuck that one in.
  • I'm pretty sure it's pronounced more-OH, not MORE-oh. Ethan Moreau , I mean. 
  • That was a loud check by Scuderi on Bergfors. I find it difficult to keep the various Nicholas/Nicolas/Niklas/Niclas/Nicklas spellings straight.
  • Bergfors, Lidstrom, Backstrom, Deslauriers, Shore -- mix and match.
  • Yes, you can blame Johnson for blowing the second clear, BUT Dustin Brown was out of position when Johnson's first pass came up the boards. 
  • Nice shot off the post. Can't blame Bernier. 
  • Williams pass instead of shot. 
  • Wouldn't it be great if you could trade coaches?
  • 2-2. Fast-paced, high scoring. Two by defensemen. I'll take it. 
  • Lakso blew a tire. Stoll did nothing. 
  • Nice save by Bernier on Hornqvist. 
  • Trevor Lewis channels Mike Richards on PK. 
  • There's Brad Richardson . I feel like I haven't seen him all game. 
  • I love it when Kopitar drives wide and then cuts back to the net. 
  • It's USC/UCLA night at Staples? I went to UCLA. My wife went to USC. Why is this worth mentioning? I don't know.
  • I would have possibly forgiven Moreau for all of his bone-headed nonsense if he had scored on that break. He even looked a little like Wayne Simmonds on that play.
  • I miss Simmonds .
  • I think he might even be a better fit as a defensive right wing than Dustin Brown. I'm pretty sure the numbers support that. 
  • I wonder if we could have gotten Mike Richards for Brown and a lesser prospect instead of Brayden Schenn and Simmonds. Probably not. And it would have ended up being Brown and Loktionov, and I would never stop crying.
  • Ooh. Goal by Richards from Brown. Just to make me look bad. Beautiful hard pass, Dustin. I am enjoying my crow. 
  • Goals by Richards, Martinez and Doughty. Penner needs to get one, as long as we're jump-starting people.
  • I think they should make the logo on these jerseys even bigger.
  • PENNER! Like I said. 
  • Okay, it's Simon Gagne. Still, I feel good about that. 
  • I can't believe they didn't call a penalty on Brown there, on the turnover that led to a scoring chance for the Kings. Weird.
  • Not offside. Let's rewind. Never mind. Totally offside by a mile. Good call.
  • I almost never see the Kings changing up speed while carrying the puck into the zone. 
  • Who does Mike Richards look like? I keep thinking it's Giovanni Ribisi but that's not it. 
  • End of two. Does Kopi have a point yet? Maybe on the Richards goal, but I don't think so. I am agreeing with Jim Fox that this is a good thing. 
  • Fast-forwarding through intermission...it looks like they're interviewing Bruce Campbell...but it's...
  • Brad Norton?
  • Doughty lip-reading: "what the **** are you watching?!"
  • Lower-body injury for Scott Parse? Uh oh. 
  • Is that a Greene - Scuderi pairing with 2 minutes left?
  • Okay, one goal game. I don't have the energy to parse that one.
  • Willie Mitchell looks like an extra from Braveheart. Maybe an attendant of Robert the Bruce.
  • Greene could be in Braveheart, too. Or Rob Roy
  • Wow. They got the puck to the net with time. Greene got beaten to the puck. 
  • A win for Bernier.
  • That's it for me. Going to bed. I just realized I forgot to update my fantasy rosters for tonight's games. Grr. 
  • (Nice loud spit, Drew.)
  • Don't know why I'm thinking about movie actors tonight. However. In that interview, it occurred to me that Doughty (who does look like Booger from Revenge of the Nerds), also looks a little like Mark Ruffalo.
