LA Kings.....
      #1586464 - 05/01/14 11:00 AM (71.204.186.227)

....what an amazing comeback from three games down to win with four, convincing, wins against the Sharks ( my second favorite team). Tough being a Kings fan up here in Shark country but my roots with them go deep..and Dean Lombardi, our great GM has a house just down the road here in Sonoma. Heading back to Tortola I'm hoping Mac will have all the games on in CGB at " The Paradise Club"..should make for some great evenings..Go Kings Go!!!!

Yeah, Paul is licking his wounds a little bit this morning after the Av's loss in OT. I guess we are now behind the Kings, his old team, all the way.

sad loss for the AV's Patrick Roy did a great job with a very young team. 4 OT games in a 7 game series. It was a great series, although the AV's always looked over played

It must be tough being a Sharks or Kings fan if the best you can hope for is to lose to the Bruins in the finals.

Congrats Mal on the Kings great comeback. Sad loss for my Avs last night but definitely see a bright future ahead. Great young team that now has a little playoff experience. I am sure we will compete next year.

once again, as a Sabres fan I have to default to my back ups! and get my "fix" and this will absolutely tick off some peeps but I like the Bruins, Rangers, Kings and Chicago...I default to Rangers and Kings in the final and then well...we'll see :) that's a tough one! hey you gotta do what you gotta do! it's a tough gig LOL

I like the Kings. Their goalie Quick, played his college hockey just up the road from us. As for the Bruins, I wouldn't sleep on them after just one 2OT loss. Up here in Bruins Nation, we're looking to right the ship this afternoon! This one may get a little "chippy"!

Hope some of you are watching the unbeleivable Kings..loved the Bruins Montreal series..and some serious lack of class shown by some players in that series..got to love Subban rising above bigotry and kissing the reporter!

Ward is a sad boy today...die hard Bruins fan....but secretly I agree Montreal has way more class and subban rocks! Their goalie is amazing.
They deserved to win.

It was to bad to see the disrespect for the tradition of the game in the hand shake line. In a way I am surprised we don't see more players behaving like Lucic at the conclusion of a tough series. The fact that we don't is one of the things I love about the sport.

I will be rooting for the Kings Mal. Hope they can pull it out.

Loser buys the beers...my Kings jersey ( Greztky era) is cleaned a ready to go after our 2012 Cup and I'll get games on my computer and we'll have them on at the Paradise Club in GB. Go Kings...WIN TONIGHT!!!!BTW the last bench clearing brawl I ever saw was a playoff game at The Forum in LA between the Rangers and Kings when they had that goon " BoxCar" Hospidar..about 83 I think..he went after Marcel Dionne and all hell broke lose..goalies and fans trying to get on the ice. The couple of thousand Rangers fans suddenly got very quiet!

My son plays for Boston College. They played together during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 season. Boston College produces a couple of NHL players each year. He's a very nice kid... only 23 years old and a fantastic hockey player.

Don't worry Mal. Most of the Bostonian I know will be rooting for the Kings. There's no love lost between New York and Boston.

Having endured years of "Hockey will never catch on in the sunbelt" its just so exciting..especially for the guys who built it Dionne, Taylor, Simmer, Wells, Rogie , Robitaille..do miss the nights when 10,00 fans at the Forum was a big deal and the players were delighted if you bought them a beer and recognised them..lot of fun stories when you you could " Skate with the Kings" for charity..

Are you on island Mal? If you are keep an eye out for my daughter Candice and brand new son-in-law Brian. They just arrived at the Sugar Mill today and I'm sure they'll be at CGB over the next few days so if you see them be sure to say hello.

Now THAT must have been VERY cool indeed!

Great game last night. It's looks like these two teams are pretty evenly matched which is going to make this series a whole lot of fun to watch.

In high school, we use to scrimmage with some of the Rangers off season like Rod Gilbert. Our high school ice rink was the tennis courts filled up with water, the cyclone fence were the boards. The irony, my schools mascot was the Oceanside High School Sailors

It helps when you get a free goal from goalie interference that non call was an absolute joke..Human error is part of the game so we move on..Kings lead series 2-0 and the only time they've had the lead in entire series is both winners in OT...Rangers are more than holding there own against the mighty Kings

The only lead that counts is the one that wins the game..BTW looked to me like a Ranger gave our guy a pretty good shove into your goalie..as you said ..we move on..makes up for the butt end into Doughty not called last game..

Mal not even close to a make call...This non call gave you a goal without it you only score 3...No doubt jostling goes on in front of the net but there was no blatant shove from McD..I WATCHED the game on CBC and they went wild over non call not sure how they reacted with Emerick and crew?

I just wish we had Bob Miller and Jim Fox calling the games..the NBC crew have a definite NY bias and don't come close to our " Hall of Famer" Miller who is never a gamer. If the goal had been called off the Kings would still have found a way to win...

Mal I watched on CBC because I'm not a huge fan of Doc or Pierre Maguire...What did the NBC crew say about the questionable non call for a goal? Just for the record I have huge respect for the Kings and how they play..

Two of them thought it was goalie interference and Millbury finally agreed after about ten replays..however you look at this series ,and the last one against the Hawks, its great, exciting and mostly clean hockey..

Our last series vs Montreal was a joke with them flopping and embellishing on everything the Canadians played with no pride and whipped their heads back to try to gain calls it was disgusting...This series so far there has been very little of that which is refreshing

Great nail-biting game. Now we'll see how well the Kings hold up on the east coast with our sweet and friendly New York Rangers fans screaming in the stands.
Hopefully there will be no more freebie goalie interference goals for the Kings. Maybe we'll get one of our own in New York.
Go Rangers! This is going to be good.

Mal I don't know how much you really follow the game but all Hockey websites and all respected people in the game said the same thing...Hank was interfered with on the goal should have been waved off..Thats been the only controversy in this series...Don't be an arrogant winner the Kings played well and Quick was unbeatable tonight...There will be no excuses from a loss like this one...You need to do your homework so you don't sound so silly after winning

Getting outshot they way they did they'll need Hank to be God like every game...thrilled that Kings fans may get the chance to see the big win at home this time ( not dissing the Rangers who will love to rain on our Stanley parade) Hank better keep that snow piled up along his goal line!!

Not seeing the Kings much because being on the east coast I am very impressed they just keep coming in waves..Big fast and relentless that said this series should be 2-2 at the least...One big thing for us in Hanks career he is 11-2 in elimination games and 5-0 this year the dude just hates losing so we have a punchers chance

If the Kings win I won't rain on your parade Mal. I'll say congrats. After 20 years of watching my son in a rink I've learned to lose (and win) graciously. The Kings are doing a great job. Actually, I'd just like to see Cam's BC buddy Chris carry a Stanley Cup around the ice. May the best team win.

that's cool!! my kids got to touch it once, one of their teachers won it for the day in some contest LOL.

this article is great :)
http://mentalfloss.com/article/51140/22-things-you-might-not-know-about-stanley-cup

Quote:

When the members of the 1924 champion Canadiens got a flat tire on the way to the team’s victory banquet at owner Leo Dandurand’s house, they had to remove the Cup from the trunk of the car to get to the spare tire. The players, eager to celebrate their win, quickly changed the tire and made their way to the party. When the traditional time came for each player to drink champagne from the silver bowl, the Cup was nowhere to be found. The players had left it on the side of the road! They hopped in their car and sped back to the place where they had changed the flat and found the Cup in a snow bank on the side of the road—right where they had left it.
