Thank you Ryan Clowe

Our Kings have now swept the Blues in the second round of the playoffs and await the winner of the Preds / Yotes series. Lets take a moment to Look back and see how we got here… Our beloved boys in black slammed the Blues in a 4 game sweep partially because we match up very well against them. We did, after all, beat them in the regular season as well. We also were fortunate to face only one head of the two headed monster the Blues have in goal. When that head turned out to be the goat (obscure chimera reference) the other was not available to come to the rescue. Had we faced the Blues in the first round that would not be the case so it’s a fine thing that we got them in the second round. Not that I’m of the opinion we couldn’t handle the a healthy Blues squad, we did sweep them after all, we do match up well against them, and we did beat them in the regular season but if Halak had been available, it would have been a more difficult task.

The Kings were given the opportunity to face the Blues because of first round glory at the expense of the Canucks. In that series, the Kings jumped out to a 3 games to none lead thanks in part due the fact that they only had to face one Sedins. I don’t care how good your team is, going down 3-0 is going to hurt your chances. Had we caught the Canucks in the second round we’d have to face both of the Gingers at the same time which would have been a much more difficult task.

I think we can all agree that we’re fortunate to have faced the Canucks in the first round and the Blues in the second round…

How did this happen? Ryan Clowe made a brilliant defensive poke check from his own bench to vanquish a clean breakaway in the third period of the second to last game of the season. That game eventually went to a shoot out which the Sharks won. Had Stoll scored on that breakaway the Kings win the game, earn the 7th seed, and face a healthy Blues squad in the first round, and a healthy Canucks squad in the second round. So THANK YOU Ryan Clowe… you little butterfly you… For flapping your tiny wings and setting all this in motion…
