GAME 1 PREVIEW ATTACK:
ARE THE KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?:
The Los Angeles Kings versus the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final, you say?
When it comes to pairing movies with a Kings-Blackhawks matchup, I prefer Die Hard 2:
When we last left the Kings-Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final... the LA Kings had decided to create a partnership with the most unfortunate motion picture tie-in of all time.
Oh, it was the end, all right.
Everyone is talking about how this particular Kings-Blackhawks matchup is more exciting since the LA Kings are not as injured as they were last year... even though Willie Mitchell and Robyn Regehr remain on the sidelines while Drew Doughty is probably playing with 3 separated shoulders. (Man up, Charlie Coyle!) Thankfully, the Chicago Blackhawks have a secret weapon when it comes to injuring marquee players in the NHL Playoffs.
If Brian Hayward were doing this game for NBCSN, he'd say Carter was selling this.
When you are a Canadian and Don Cherry calls you out... you've done something bad.
Well, at least Duncan Keith is a true professional with tons of #class when it comes to dealing with injuries of his union brothers, right? RIGHT?!?
Please just stay away from Kopitar, Duncan Keith.
