Man, that really sucks.

It's unfortunate for Alex Pietrangelo because he has had a wonderful season. Hopefully it doesn't end because of that hit.

It's unfortunate for Dwight King, who isn't so much a dirty player as he is a big dumb labrador who can't control his limbs. Hopefully no one retaliates against him illegally; a good, solid scrap should be fine.

But mostly, it's unfortunate for Drew Doughty. This was going to be his moment to publicly embarrass Alex Pietrangelo and all those people who haven't watched him in 2 years and wrongly think he's not the best defenseman to come out of his draft class, let alone the best young defenseman in the NHL. He was going to kill him and it was going to be hilarious; now, either Pietrangelo will be out or his ass kicking at the hands of Doughty will be blamed on that hit.

Poor Doughty.

Poor, poor Doughty.

The goal Matt Greene scored reminded me of this goal from 2010:

No I'm not crying! It's just dusty! Oh God why is there so much dust in here

Prediction: Kings win, 2-1. King fights, it solves nothing.
