2014 Cup Run: Round 4, Game 2

Wow, Kings and Rangers took Game 1 to overtime to open the Stanley Cup Final. Game 2 couldn’t live up to that finish, could it?

The usual suspects relive the heart spasms in a text feed below.

Today’s link: A two-fer, starting with a seemingly unlikely source, the newspaper The Los Angeles Register. But its Kings staff writer is former LA Kings Insider Rich Hammond, who continues to do great work in this venue, including his game recaps. And because it is mentioned by Anthony in the text thread, a formal shoutout to Deadspin, which covers just about any story in sports with a funnier side (including the Will Ferrell stunt in Times Square).

[Pre-game]

 

2:26pm

 

Sean:

Any predictions for this afternoon? Not final score.

 

Anthony:

You guys don’t learn….

 

Sean:

Listen. Just wondering what people are thinking about Kings adjustments and how they’ll impact the game. NOT FINAL SCORE.

 

Anthony:

I think they’ll adjust your face.

 

Sean:

My face could use it.

 

Anthony:

It’s a gorgeous face

 

Matt:

Prediction: Keith’s dad crushes an order of deluxe nachos

 

Anthony:

Nice

Prediction: Doughty continues to look like the Ryan and Sean’s 5th sibling

 

Matt:

I think he looks like Sue from Swingers. Who’s also a Kings fan.

 

Anthony:

He totally does!

Make his f_____g head bleed, the Kings are a finesse team

Sue grew up in Anaheim, but reps the Kings

 

Matt:

Yeah Sue is pretty f_____g legit.

I picture Doughty with a huge chain wallet

 

Anthony:

We had to keep our rep

He took the Kings to the Sega finals

 

Matt:

I bet all those Hawks fans wish they had Roenick back

 

Anthony:

By the way, the Kings need to remain successful through next season as well, at least until the Lakers can sign Westbrook and K Love. Ah gaaaad, Bruin boner!

 

Keith:

Anze Kopitar got his BA from UCLA

 

Anthony:

Keith trolling again

 

Keith:

Tony trying to steer attention back to basketball

 

Anthony:

Better than trolling

Divisive Keith. Typical.

 

Keith:

Go! Kings go!

 

Sean:

Let’s all get on the same page guys

 

Anthony:

I salute all of Staples winners. Except the Clippers, who are losers and chumps.

 

Sean:
For some reason, I had totally forgot that people from New York are f_____g obnoxious.

 

Anthony:

They are. F___ New York.

Especially people who move there, live for two years, and call themselves “New Yorkers”

 

Keith:

Now here’s something we can agree on

Sean : uniter

 

Anthony:

Two feet of sky mother______s

3:48pm

 

Keith:

Prediction: we come out way better this game.
It feels like it has been weeks since we last played. So impatient!

 

 

[Game time]

 

4:38pm

 

Sean:

Carter goes to the dressing room after that hit.

Carter back on the bench

 

Keith:

Thanks Pierre McGuire.

What’s the update on Girardi?

 

 

5:08pm

 

Sean:

This feels familiar.

 

Keith:

God damn

 

 

6:14pm

 

Keith:

Don’t feel so good about this

 

 

7:12pm

 

Keith:

Unbelievable

 

Sean:

Getting hard to breath or think.

Anybody feeling lucky?

 

 

8:16pm

 

Matt:

All right let’s f_____g do this!

 

 

8:41pm

 

Anthony:

ITS JUST TOO MUCH

 

Keith:

2012 part two!

 

Anthony:

And to all a good night.

Seriously, no more OT’s.

 

Sean:

And now I sleep for two days straight.

 

Keith:

One and a half

Peace and props

 

Sean:

Can this team be denied?

Three different 2 goal deficits? 2 overtimes? No problem.

 

Keith:

Um, was it loud in there?

 

Sean:

Just a little bit.

And in case you ever need to buy the third period, you will need to consult its owner: the Los Angeles Kings.

 

Matt:

Team of destiny gents

Bea pissed on me and my Kings shirt before OT. I’ll make sure to replicate that Monday.

 

Keith:

Ha ha ha

 

Sean:

The lucky piss!

Important fact: the last team to win the first two games in OT won the series.

More important fact: that team was the LA Kings.

 

Anthony:

Important fact: in NHL playoff series where one team has Swedes and the other doesn’t, the team without Swedes is 34-2.

 

Keith:

And if that Swede is the King Swede, their team is winless.

 

 

[Post-game]

 

8:44 pm

 

Ryan:

THIS IS DUSTING F_____G BROWN

 

Keith:

Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuundqviiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiist

 

Ryan:

Never worry about a 2 goal trail with the Kings. Never give up, never surrender.
Sean:
The last three games we’ve come back from 2-0.

Also, we trailed by 2 three separate times this game.

Also, the Kings have held the lead for exactly 0:00 over the last three games, and won the last three games.

 

Ryan:

WE LOVE IT!!!

(Not really, I’d love to hold some leads, but wins are wins)

 

Keith:

This is the scary thing: you know if the Kings had a two goal lead, it would be game over for the Rangers. But apparently it’s game over for the Rangers if they have the lead too.
