It's like Christmas

As you may have guessed, I was pretty excited when the Kings won the Stanley Cup back in 2012. This is may have topped it. Dwight "Superstar" King scored three goals. In a game. Yes, sure we could go over the fact the Kings blew a 4-0 lead, but they still won. With help from Dwight King. Three times. Hat tricks are usually nice, little noteworthy events. Justin Williams, Jeff Carter, Dustin Brown, etc etc. This is bigger. This is better. This was creepier, funnier, and stranger. Hell, this was downright Eraserhead sort of bizarre. This was Dwight King.

DWIGHT KING

Kinggoalface_gif_medium

It's the guy who has been at the end of every joke. Who looks, and probably is, completely crazy. Who's name is King on the Kings! And he scored a hat trick. Hell, he even made Robyn Regehr look like a threat in the offensive zone instead of just a liability. I'm so happy. So shout it from the rooftops. Let everyone know. Don't let this moment of greatness pass you by. Mostly because King has never had a multi-goal game in his career until now. And don't say, "But I'm little wiener, and the hat trick doesn't count because it was an empty net." Get the fuck out. It's the Season of the King. God Dwight bless us. Everyone.
