Greetings. Thank you for calling 1-800-LA-Y-GOD-Y. You have reached the Los Angeles Kings Fan Suicide Prevention Hotline. We understand that you are confused, upset, angry, drunk, and/or suffering from indigestion following the two games of the Kings getting shellacked. They did after all allow more goals in these two games then they ever did in the regular season in any three game stretch. However, due to unexpectedly high caller traffic following game two Sunday evening, we have automated our system to direct you to the proper personnel. Please hold for a moment.
