ARE THE KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?:
There is a young LA Kings defenseman who is having such a great playoff run, that sportswriters and fans across North America just can't stop talking about him.
Were you expecting someone else?
Jake Muzzin has 11 points in 19 games in the 2014 NHL Playoffs after having 3 points in 11 games during last seasons playoffs. So you can be sure that the most important people in Los Angeles have taken notice!
Why yes, that is Will Ferrell in a Jake Muzzin jersey. Why do you ask?
Canada just fainted.
Funny enough, this isn't the first time that Will Ferrell and Jake Muzzin have worked on a project together.
Eighth Seed... The Motion Picture.
Of course everyone wants to talk about Jake Muzzin's big hit in Game 5 on Marcus Kruger.
And according to Jersey Brian of #TeamTRH... that hit has earned Jake Muzzin a new nickname.
Well, I guess all that is left for Jake Muzzin tonight is to help the LA Kings clinch their 1st ever Clarence Campbell Bowl on home ice. (They've only done it twice before in their 46 seasons so it's not like that's a super impressive stat.) And then Jake Muzzin can be playing for his 1st Stanley Cup ever.
Whoops... I mean his 2nd Stanley Cup. Kinda.
