I’m not a beat reporter, so your girl didn’t stay up late to write a wrap-up post about the LA Kings getting eliminated last night. I have a buddy in town, and we had to do important things like talk about how much we love the Kings and figure out if any restaurants near me were still open around midnight.
Mission? Accomplished. There’s a thai place.
Now that I’m rested and have mulled things over a while: I’m obviously sad that Kings couldn’t quite repeat, but I also can’t think of a better way for an elimination game to go than to have my favorite team tie twice, including that beautiful offensive zone play with seconds left in regulation. To take the number one team in the NHL this season to double overtime when a number of key players from last year’s run are playing with injuries this time is amazing.
I’m proud, Retta.
