OILERS + FLAMES VS THE KINGS POINTS UPDATE:
LooKING Back:Who cares that the LA Kings lost to the lowly Calgary Flames on Saturday night for the 2nd time this season... THE ST. LOUIS B-LOSE ARE IN TOWN!!!!
But the biggest reason to make fun of the St. Louis Blues is that they haven't won in the great city of Los Angeles since March 17, 2011.
To put into perspective how long ago the St. Louis Blues' last victory in Los Angeles was... here are a few things that occurred during the week of March 17, 2011:
Lady Gaga was still culturally relevant.
Johnny Depp was still a legitimate box office draw.
The Atlanta Thrashers were still a thing.
FYI, the Thrashers still have as many Stanley Cups as the St. Louis Blues.
Yes, Barret Jackman... it's true!
And if it's not enough that the St. Louis Blues have lost 8 straight games in Los Angeles... last Saturday at Staples Center... Tom Hanks continued to show why he is the best A-List hockey fan when it comes to the Blues and Kings.
Your move, Jon Hamm.
