ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?
That's right, LA Kings fans... it turns out that the fans of the Chicago Blackhawks love to say how handsome Patrick Sharp is after he scores a goal. And let's be honest...
...they aren't wrong.
Patrick Sharp now has 32 points in 27 games against the Los Angeles Kings. That's some serious regicide
So with Game 2 today in Chicago... how do the Los Angeles Kings counteract Patrick Sharp's incredible good looks?
By playing ugly.
And man... that is going to be hard.
Luckily... the LA Kings have a secret weapon.
That's right... the last time that LA Kings forward Dwight King scored a NHL goal... it was in Chicago
FYI, Dwight King's last goal was 70 days ago.
Or 2 months and 9 days ago if you aren't good with math.
Now that's a wrap-around.
If the LA Kings aren't able to counteract Patrick Sharp's sexiness with ugly play... I'm sure a bunch of LA Kings fans have the answer
for how their favorite team can compete with the Blackhawks...
