KINGS POINTS LEADER vs INJURED JOHN TAVARES UPDATE:

 

LooKING Back:

The LA Kings lost their 3rd consecutive game, 4-3 to the Phoenix Coyotes. And I just wish there was something significant about it.  

WHAT WE LEARNED FROM THE PAST GAME LAST NIGHT:

We learned that Willie Mitchell had quite the day off yesterday.

 

LA TOURISM BOARD:

The Washington Capitals come to Staples Center with a 3 game winning streak, having beat the Anaheim Ducks last Tuesday. The Capitals are struggling for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference despite an amazing season (that has come with some criticism) by Alex Ovechkin. With much anticipated rookie forward Evgeny Kuznetsov finally in the lineuOH MY GOD WHO CARES ABOUT THE CAPITALS DID YOU SEE RYAN MILLER'S BRAND NEW ST. LOUIS BLUES MASK?!?!?!?!!?!

Hey, Ray Bishop from Bishop Designs... I'm no musician... but I'm pretty sure this isn't an actual note:

I'm guessing this is supposed to be a Sixteenth note?  Or maybe it's a Tremolo?

A Tremolo is is a musical term describing trembling effects.

Or what Ryan Miller will be feeling when the Blues face the Kings in the playoffs.

The only thing worse than Ryan Miller's new St. Louis Blues mask is the St. Louis Blues justification for why it is so ugly.

First of all... Ryan Miller's airbrushed mask of awfulness looks nothing like the great Curtis Joseph "Blue Note" mask from the early 1990s.

And second of all... despite being infinitely better than whatever it is Ryan Miller has decided to put on his head... even Curtis Joseph thought the Blue Note mask was so bad that he eventually changed it.

Well, I guess this just proves my pal Flubber McGee's theory...

... "There has never, and will never be, a Blues mask that looks good."
