A Long December

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
-Counting Crows

Kings 3, Blue Jackets 0

Half Season Ticket Holder Buddy and I talked yesterday on the phone about how a great team like Detroit is always able to score on cross ice passes from player to player. And that for the Kings... well it seems like they only score on those kind of goals once or twice a month. Well, last night in Columbus, Patrick O'Sullivan and Peter Harrold both scored on those type of passes.

A great win and an excellent holiday gift for Kings fans. The team is 2 points out of a playoff spot and one of the best players on the Kings said this about their rookie goaltender, Jon Quick:

"(Quick) played great. He's really athletic and probably the most
impressive thing about him is he's really calm. He doesn't overreact."
- Patrick O'Sullivan

I don't remember hearing the same praised given to Jason LaBarbera. And Erik Ersberg is on his way back. And don't forget about the return of Jack Johnson after the new year. Have a great holiday!

And thanks to the GREAT ticket deals, some Kings fans are going to have a happy New Year too! Hopefully we can hold on to the momentum. I got the highlights texted to me yesterday, but I missed watching the awesomeness.

Hey Chris, did you design your logo? It's pretty neat!

Well, good for you to be able to go to the games but a little bit of a slap in the face to us that bought half season tickets!

You mean the logo on the right side of the page? Why that's the infamous Kings 3rd Logo from a long time ago. Check out:
