ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?
Well, as we all know by now
... the Chicago Blackhawks will be without the services
of their star defenseman, Duncan Keith, for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals. In case you missed it here is the detailed explanation of Duncan Keith's stick infraction against Jeff Carter in Game 3 from Tuesday night:
Back... and to the left.
The best part of Duncan Keith swinging his stick directly into a small spot on a moving target is that everyone has now seen what a benefit he could be to other struggling Chicago sports teams
Come to think of it... I bet a couple other teams
could really use Duncan Keith's powerful stroke right now.
Man, Gloucestershire could really use the help at batsman.
But as much as Duncan Keith swinging his stick into the face of Jeff Carter was the undercard of Game 3... tonight, in Game 4... we just might see the main event.
Officials broke up the fight — which started as the two shoved each other while jockeying for position on a faceoff — before it got started, and each received only a roughing minor. But Sharp said he would be happy to continue what they started later in the series.
‘‘He asked me to fight,’’ Sharp said. ‘‘If he asks me again, I’ll fight him any day he wants.’’
So that can only mean one thing tonight during Game 4...
LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE... VERY HANDSOMELY!!!
