So Game 5 didn’t exactly turn out as we hoped, but tonight, the Kings have the chance to close out the series (again) and win their first ever Stanley Cup.
While we don’t like the Devils, we have to give them props for not laying down in front of the purple and black freight train and for pushing the series to a Game 6.
Last week, the Devils were down 3-0 in the series, teetering percariously on the edge, Jonathan Quick poised to send them tumbling into the abyss of the SCF sweep.
But leave it to Marty Brodeur, the 4o year old future Hall of Fame netminder, to bring the Devils back and for the players like Parise, Salvador, and he of the creeper ‘stach, Henrique, to step up big time.
Have the Devils totally messed with the Kings’ hockey chi? Will they come from 3-0 down to win their 4th Stanley Cup?
Mike Richards and his heterosexual life partner, Jeff Carter are determined to not make that happen.
Their epic bromance will conquer all.
If there ever was a time that these two needed to step up, it is tonight.
Time to silence all those hater and critics and to show the Flyers fans what they could have had.
I have confidence in the Kings. They just need to play the way that they’ve been playing the entire playoffs. With physicality, skill, strength. But most importantly, to play like one being, a hockey borg, if you will.
Take a deep breath, boys. Keep calm and carry on.
