The Kings' shooting luck may be normalizing!

Quick's save percentage may be normalizing too.

They were aggressive!

They lost!

Wait, that's not bizarre.

Here's video of Kyle Clifford's hit on Gilbert Brule last night, taken from inside someone's ass:


Yeah, I don't know. I can see the argument that he didn't technically make primary contact with the head... but that hit's still incredibly unnecessary. It's a guy mad that he had just taken a penalty and trying to make it up by being physical, but he really just blindsided a guy and tried to hurt him. And he was successful. Personally, I think Clifford should get suspended... of course, he should get benched for playing like shit anyway but that's another matter.

I hope Brule's OK.

Prediction: Kings lose, 6-5. But hey, at least they're scoring!
