Imagine you're Andrei Loktionov. You're playing in your first NHL game after a lifetime of hard work and dedication. You're playing alongside a fellow countryman who you admire, Alexander Frolov, and the captain of your new team, Dustin Brown. You play pretty well, creating some nice opportunities, and things are looking good.

...Then you separate your shoulder so badly that doctors can't put it back in.

Now imagine how I feel. How badly does this suck for me? Man, I just can't catch a break.

Oh well, Meat Train Simmonds had a good game last night! He scored on a... let's say charitable, that sounds right, goal allowed by local goof Jeffrey Deslauriers and he had an assist on the game-winning rocket by... Matt Greene? Wait, that can't be right. Let me look that up... well, what do you know? Matt Greene, goal scorer.

The Kings play the Vancouver Canucks tonight at 7. Dinner's going to start at 5. It's going to be close.
