Duck Soup

How much fun is it to be a Los Angeles King right now? Even renowned sourpuss Patrick O'Sullivan cracked a smile tonight.

Oh...So that's why he never smiles. Makes sense.

Kings 4, Freeway Faceoff Failures 3

What's going to be better? Making the playoffs or finishing ahead of the Anaheim Ducks? How about both? I'm glad the world-famous Freeway Faceoff is over so that I never have to listen to the NHL's worst play by play team again... until next season.

Yup. They still do this segment.

I think "Hays" was in a haze of his own today... even by Brian Hayward standards. Not only did he imply that Dustin Brown is a diver but he also was convinced that Ducks defenseman Scott Niedermayer ran over Kings goaltender Jon Quick... then Quick skated back to his crease... and then skated back behind the net to punch Niedermayer. He was convinced of it. Even his broadcast partner John "Rimming" Ahlers called him out as crazy.

It's always a treat to watch the Ducks broadcast against the Kings because you really do get the sense of how different it is down south.

Heidi Androl would never stoop this low.

And the fans are much, much classier in Orange County. That's why they make TV shows about them!

This Bordeaux goes excellent with my chicken strip.

Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller unveiled his brand new mask tonight at the game. Maybe he's planning on getting traded to Vancouver. In 1979.

Is this really happening? Exert for Eighth continues. 3 points out of the playoffs. Let's do it all over again Thursday night in San Jose.

Watching the game on FSN last night was a chore. Brian Hayward is so bad some nights that it's almost hilarious. I wonder how many Ducks fans realize just how bad he is?

Wow, that picture: fried chicken, alcohol and cleavage. Try beating that trio.

It's the triple threat.

Hayward is the worst. I'm not sure that Ducks fans know how bad he is. Jim Fox can be annoying "woooah!" but at least he knows the game.

Jesus that had me in stitches. About as solid as it gets jack.

Great blog. As a Vancouver resident I can say fuck the Canucks. As a Minnesota Vikings fan I can say, I know frustration cheering for a team that never lives up to expectations.

If you wanna trade links let us know, other wise I willb e content to follow your stuff and read. Great vantage point, and I think the kinds are going to be the new Blackhawks, too much talent not to be a powerhouse in the next vcouple years.
