Typing to you all from the plane right now (I feel like Jon Rosen) as we depart after an OT win in Las Vegas and head home to be with our families. Three straight wins just before the holiday break is the PERFECT gift for any LA Kings fan, don't you agree?!
As a gift to the players, something new has been implemented this season.
For each Kings' goal scored at home, a hand-picked song by the goal scorer will be played following the celebration. Yes, what I'm saying is the players have goal songs now. And they're great.
From Abba to Eddie Money, this group of guys truly have the most eclectic music tastes.
There are a lot of songs they've chosen that I've never heard before. Like Kyle Clifford's pick, Hillbilly Deluxe. Should I know that? Probably. Do I? Nope!
