I don't know what to think anymore. You probably all know that I run on Beefeater and anger and I'm running dangerously low on both recently. I mean, think about what I had to get mad about last year: John Zeiler, Terry Murray's insane line changes, Jason Labarbera, Brian Willsie (he wasn't on the Kings, but his shittiness was like a nuclear power plant for my anger energy), Jack Johnson getting hurt, the Kings losing, Kopitar struggling, Brown forgetting how to play at the end of the season... I had a lot to be angry about. This season? Not much. The one thing I had was the fact that Peter Harrold was playing but now that Teddy Purcell has been put on the 4th line with Raitis Ivanans and Brad Richardson, I don't even have that. I swear, if the Kings call up Richard Clune and play him in place of Ivanans I might start pimping Terry Murray for the Jack Adams.

Teddy Purcell has been moved to make room for the return of Justin Williams, who retakes his place alongside Anze Kopitar and Ryan Smyth. I thought it was funny that Terry Murray recently explained that a player can't lose his spot because of an injury, yet Scott Parse was called up in Williams' stead and kinda stole Teddy Purcell's job; I guess you can only lose your spot because of someone else's injury.


See? That was me trying to muster up some sort of anger about Purcell getting demoted but it doesn't ring true. Bench Fro again, call Drew Doughty a fag, someone do something to piss me off.

Maybe Earl and I should switch places, this feels weird.

Prediction: Kings win, 4-1. Goals by Justin Williams (x2), Simmonds and Ted Purcell.
