I was under the impression "winningest" was not a word pic.twitter.com/i8nNqAmSds— Divya Dureja (@Divvvvv23) March 22, 2014
kings win 4-0 on a saturday game & we all learn that "winningest" is a word.— Selina Flores (@snorinef) March 22, 2014
Let's just be thankful no one tweeted this out after Jon Quick set the Kings record:
I just wish there was some way to visually represent how it feels for LA Kings fans to have Jon Quick be their all-time leader in games won by a Goaltender.
Oh man, no.
LA TOURISM BOARD:Tonight at the Wells Fargo Center, two dynamic forwards will be playing in front of the Philadelphia crowd together for the first time ever.
Were you expecting someone else?
Last night, @KingsMenPodcast and I tried to create a Hollywood Couple nickname for Gaborik & Kopitar. MariAnze, Kopirik or Gabotar?— The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) March 21, 2014
Oh right, tonight Jeff Carter and Mike Richards will be playing together against their former team for the first time ever. Sure, Mike Richards has played in Philadelphia before as a LA King... but tonight, it's Jeff Carter's turn.
Come on... don't leave Richie hanging, bro.Let's take a moment to look back on all the things Richards and Carter won together while in Philadelphia.
Man, I can't help but shake the feeling that I've seen that photo somewhere before.
Yep, now I remember!
I know it will be emotional in Philadelphia tonight for the return of Mike Richards and Jeff Carter... but let's not forget what's really important here...
Forget about Mike Richards & Jeff Carter. Let’s never forget the Flyers traded Patrick Sharp for Matt Ellison and a 2006 3rd round pick.— The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) March 24, 2014
Another 30 goal season for Sharp. Thanks Flyers.— Torque Penderloin (@AndrewCieslak) March 22, 2014
@theroyalhalf they also traded Justin Williams for Danny Markov and traded Bobrovsky the year before he won the Vezina— The Mouth (@TheMouthLAKings) March 24, 2014
Seriously though... Flyers traded JVR to Toronto for Luke Schenn. Like, in real life.— The Hockey Hitman (@thehockeyhitman) March 20, 2014
Never change, Philadelphia. Never ever change.
