Kings Links: Everyone's wild about Anze
6 in a row!
The Kings have now won 6 in a row and are taking on the Minnesota Wild tonight at Staples.
- It looks the the Wild are going with Bryz tonight and are coming off a solid win in Phoenix.
- Speaking of Bryz, he’s been pretty good for the Wild since coming over from Edmonton.
- While we’re on the topic of goaltending, Jonathan Quick is hot right now and Puck Daddy thinks his eye-catching save against the Jets is the new front-runner for save of the year .
- Meanwhile Anze Kopitar is finally getting some Selke love. Willie Mitchell had some glowing praise for Kopitar’s two-way game. Thx Bud put together some sweet "Kopitar for Selke" propaganda.
- More on Kopi’s Selke bid and assorted other stuff that will give you warm and fuzzy feelings on THX Bud’s latest podcast this morning.
- Kopitar made it on Jimmy Kimmel’s Unintentional Joke of the Day:
