Dustin Penner is a weird dude. It's like he made a deal with the Devil to become rich & famous but the Devil fucked him over by making everyone hate him. Why do people hate him? He seems nice enough and it's not like he's ugly and thus deserving of scorn or anything. I know he played poorly last year but he seems more dedicated this year and we should give him a chance.Hey assholes, don't hate Dustin Penner!

Penner is lining up alongside Mike Richards and Dustin Brown tonight, since his Anze Kopitar seems to have some chemistry with Simon Gagne and Justin Williams. I'm a fan of those lines since Penner should open up some space for Richards to operate; I'm also discovering that you can put any combination of Penner/Brown/Gagne/Williams with Kopitar/Richards and I'll probably like it. It's weird having good players!

So yeah, Penner is playing tonight. Good luck, big guy! DON'T FUCK IT UP.

Hooray, Kovalchuk! Man, imagine if we had him and not Dustin Penner? That'd be so sweet.

Prediction: Kings win, 3-2. Kovalchuk scores on his own net, then rips of his Devils jersey to reveal a Kings jersey underneath. Then I touch myself in bad places. I'm doing that right now, by the way.
