KINGS POINTS LEADER vs INJURED JOHN TAVARES UPDATE:
ARE THE KINGS IN THE PLAYOFFS?:
ARE THE KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?:
Last night at Staples Center, the Los Angeles Kings clinched their 5th consecutive season in the playoffs. And boy, the team wouldn't shut up about it! Well, there were at least two guys for the Kings last night that knew how to celebrate.
More like a high-FIVE PLAYOFF YEARS IN A ROW, AM I RIGHT?!?
WHAT WE LEARNED FROM THE PAST GAME:
Not sure if you've noticed lately... but Alec Martinez has turned into a beast.
Hmm, let me translate.
Hmm, let me translate for people besides Alec Martinez.
Well, I'm just glad the news regarding Alec Martinez is all positive these days.
LA TOURISM BOARD:
Tonight, the LA Kings take on the team that should be their eventual 1st Round opponent, the San Jose Sharks. Now, I know a lot of people give Sharks fans grief
for being a bunch of lemmings who really know nothing about the sport of hockey... but I think that stereotype might be finally going away.
Ok, Fear The Fin may have a point here.
Last season, we followed the LA Kings stretch against the Pacific Division using PACTRAK... but this year, our good pals at THXBUD (the blog that you will probably all be reading instead of The Royal Half eventually) has decided to track the LA Kings final 6 games against the Pacific Division in a much more indie rock fashion.
Let's just hope the LA Kings get as focused as Scott.
