KINGS POINTS LEADER vs INJURED JOHN TAVARES UPDATE:
LooKING Back:The LA Kings beat the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 and we saw the definition of Tic-Tac-Toe passing:
Jeff Carter is so money... it's more like Tic-Tac-Dough, am I right?
LA TOURISM BOARD:Well... the LA Kings made a big splash amongst the craziness of the NHL Trade Deadline yesterday...
That's right, the LA Kings acquired right winger Marian Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets for Matt Frattin, a 2nd Round pick and a conditional 3rd Round pick. And everyone on Twitter made the exact same joke!
@MGaborik10 HELL YEAH!!! You know the last time we traded an awesome player to the Kings from Columbus he put his name on the Stanley cup!— Jose Perez (@iamjoseperez) March 6, 2014
The last time the blue jackets sent someone to the kings they won the cup, im pretty happy getting gaborik— Joe McIver (@Joseph_McIver) March 6, 2014
The last time the Kings made a midseason trade with the Blue Jackets, they won the Stanley Cup.— Renato Mazariegos (@RPMSports18) March 5, 2014

Wow. The Kings making moves today! We all remember last time the Kings traded for a winger from Columbus.— Thomas Blick (@faildxperiment) March 5, 2014

So who is Gabbo? No really... who is Gabbo?
Marion Gaborik is an elite-level, goal scoring winger who can be a game-changer... when he wants to be. But more importantly... the man knows how to carry a team on his shoulders.
Of course, by "team"... I meant "christmas tree."
Marian Gaborik will fit in perfectly in Los Angeles... he shops at Whole Foods!
So if that clip of Marian Gaborik doesn't show you what his potential as a LA King is... then maybe one of the 26 music montages of his highlights on YouTube will!
I'm not kidding... there are like 26 of them.
And I thought I had a lot of free time!
If there is one Marian Gaborik highlight video that you should watch on the Internet... make it this one:
I don't know about you guys... but I'm head over heels in love with Gaborik!
If Marian Gaborik can be the player he once was for the LA Kings down this playoff stretch... the LA Kings fans are really gonna like him.
And because I know that Danny Zollars, the Senior Director of LA Kings Game Operations, is reading this... how about we put this up on the jumbotron after every Marian Gaborik goal, huh?
May will cause seizures.

Welcome to my nightmare...
Jeff Carter was traded to two different teams under the names Vanek and St. Louis. Remarkable CSN editing. pic.twitter.com/cDWStFV0yU— BroPa (@Good_Ry_Hunting) March 6, 2014
