Kings Gameday: Ol' Craig


Next Game


 

First home game of Craig's Kings career was against the Phoenix Coyotes. The Kings were up 1 in the dying minutes of the game when they took 2 penalties almost immediately following each other. The Coyotes pulled their goaltender, giving them a 6-on-3 advantage.

The lone forward the Kings put out to face the onslaught? Ol' Craig.

Instead of trying to win the puck back, Craig instead pushed the puck past a surprised Mike Comrie and skated straight into the morass of Coyotes. Shane Doan tripped Craig in an attempt to steal the puck from him, killing the Coyotes' momentum.

That was the moment I decided Craig Conroy was one of the coolest dudes ever.

Prediction: Kings win, 4-2. Goals by Kopitar (x2), Mitchell and Stoll.
