PHILADELPHIA FLYERS VS JEFF CARTER POINTS UPDATE:

 

 

 

LooKING Back:

Who cares that the LA Kings completely destroyed the Vancouver Canucks 5-1 and unleashed 1000's of Linden Vey-related puns on the world at large?!?!? Because Jon Quick tweeted this out after the game:

WILLIE MITCHELL AS WALTER WHITE

Because they both love to cook.    

JUSTIN WILLIAMS AS JESSE PINKMAN

Just like Jesse, Justin Williams is always underestimated and under appreciated... but greatly skilled and he comes out on top... well... sorta.      

LINDEN VEY AS WALT JR

When Breaking Bads ends... we don't know what will become of Walt Jr. But we know that right now, he is the man of the White household. When the LA Kings season ends... we don't know what will become of Linden Vey. But we know that right now, he is the man on the Kings.

   

JON QUICK AS SAUL GOODMAN

Much like Saul Goodman... Jon Quick is always bailing Walt and the rest of his team out of trouble.

   

TYLER TOFFOLI AS TODD

Todd is one of the most dangerous villains on Breaking Bad. He is calm and exceedingly polite... but is also utterly remorseless and kills without any hesitation.

   

MATT GREENE AS HANK SCHRADER

Much like Hank Schrader... when Matt Greene is at work, he is "the law"... but away from work... he's a fun-loving guy. Hank homebrews beer in his garage which just seems like something Matt Greene would do.    

DUSTIN BROWN AS GUS FRING

Despite his outward appearance of being a proprietor of a highly successful fried chicken franchise, Gus Fring is one of the best villians in Breaking Bad.

Despite his outward appearance of being a Captain of a highly successful hockey franchise, Dustin Brown is one of the best villians in the NHL.

   

DARRYL SUTTER AS MIKE EHRMANTRAUT

Much like Darryl Sutter... Mike Ehrmantraut is methodical, professional, no-nonsense... and he's been around the block a few times.

   

TREVOR LEWIS & DREW DOUGHTY AS SKINNY PETE AND BADGER

Like there was any other choice for these two guys.

   

DANIEL CARCILLO AS TUCO SALAMANCA 

Tuco Salamanca is a psychopathic drug kingpin who is unpredictable and prone to violent outbursts. I'm not sure I'm legally allowed to say anything more per my contract with the LA Kings.

   

JEFF CARTER & MIKE RICHARDS AS THE COUSINS

The Cousins on Breaking Bad have a non-verbal interaction which makes them lethal as they kill without hesitation or emotion. Jeff Carter and Mike Richards are Jeff Carter and Mike Richards.

   

BEN SCRIVENS AS GALE BOETTICHER

Gale Boetticher is highly educated, a fan of world music, loves the poetry of Walt Whitman and is extremely kind. I'm pretty sure that Ben Scrivens has a lawsuit against the Breaking Bad producers on his hand.

    Thanks to Indiana Matt and Ironsight Design for their great work with these photoshops. And special thanks to Jack A. Wilson because The Royal Half has a dirty little secret...    

LA TOURISM BOARD:

Who cares about the Buffalo Sabres... did you not see the photoshops of LA Kings players as characters from Breaking Bad above?!? Ok, fine... but I wish there was two ways to visually describe what the Buffalo Sabres season has looked like so far.

Nailed it.

As created by Jesse Cohen from All The Kings Men Podcast... The Moulson Index™ highlights an opposing player from tonights game who has the opportunity to score against his former employer, the LA Kings.

Tonight's Moulson Index Spotlight is:

 

MATT MOULSON, LEFT WINGER

In 5 games versus the LA Kings in his career, Matt Moulson has 3 GOALS & 1 ASSIST

WAIT... MATT MOULSON IS THE MOULSON INDEX™ PLAYER?!?
