ARE THE KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?:
As the LA Kings have begun their march back from a 3-0 deficit, LA Kings forward, Anze Kopitar, has started to take his rightful place amongst the elite names in the world such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bob Marley and Bill Gates.
In an online coloring book!
As sent to me by TRH Tipster™ MaryVonBrown, the online coloring book website TheColor.Com seriously has an Anze Kopitar option in its thousands of coloring pages.
It's a pretty life-like representation of Anze Kopitar. As opposed to that obviously photoshopped picture of Kopitar that's been floating around.
So let's see what other LA Kings TheColor.Com has representing the sport of hockey on their online coloring pages...
Wow, Wayne Gretzky and Anze Kopitar... that's pretty special company. Well, I'm sure that the other hockey players that are available on this site are just as amazinWHAAAAAAAA
This is easily the strangest hockey lineup since this years New Jersey Devils team.
TheColor.Com also gives you the option of erasing the "C" from Ovechkin's chest.
It's so fitting that former St. Louis Blues great, Brett Hull, is in a golfing jacket.
No, seriously. He is.
A good number of the other players on TheColor.Com look like figures from popular culture.
Daniel Sedin looks like Eminem.
Ray Bourque looks like Salvatore Romano from Mad Men.
And Mark Messier looks like Destro.
But I just want to take this moment to remind hockey fans everywhere that TheColor.Com has Tim Thomas as an option on its site...
...but not one San Jose Shark.

THE ROYAL HALF GAMEDAY PREVIEW TWEET OF THE DAY
Once again, Willie Mitchell shows he is one of the NHL's elite...
... the NHL's elite foodies, that is.
Oh, and if Mitchell is out with a mystery illness for tonight's game...
It's because Randy Hahn poisoned his food.
