Thanks to my sonsean for this picture he made for our blog: DuckHunt!
Of course Hayward is in the front. LOL! This idea came from my hubbypat and I watching the Ducks vs Vancouver game and having a few beers and well, you know, the more fun we had at the Duck’s and Canuck’s expense as the night wore on. A few examples from hubbypat:
HP: WTF is Hayzee talking about now? Perry had a “glorious pass?” glorious pass, my ass. F*** Y**
HP: Why are the Suck’s fans wearing Xmas sweaters? That is…I don’t know.
HP: Why are the Suck’s fans wearing button down brown shirts? Steve Butabi, Dave Butabi.
HP: Lube Me Up Visnovsky!
HP: The Sedin Twins look like aliens. (in Arnold voice) I am a clone of your clone!
HP: Really hard to watch Vancouver-Ducks game. Harder than my d*** could ever be.
God, I love him! LOL
Freeway Face-off rivalry starts tonight with the 1st of 6 games this season. Tomorrow will be game 2 of our back-to-back games
The Kings have 19 pts and the Ducks have 15. The Kings are in 17th place in the league and the Ducks are in 26th place. Tonight should be a lot of fun as the Sucks have been sucking and will come out really wanting to beat us. We will have to play fast and hopefully like last game, come out shooting. We can take them easily if we take more shots on goal.
Kopitar leaves the ducks in the dust
The Ducks have Lubo Visnovsky and Parros out of the lineup due to injuries. That is good for us. If Parros was in, Murray would most likely add Westgarth to our lineup. And Lubo is really good against us as well. But with both of those players out, Murray will stick with a more offensive 4th line with Moreau – Frasier – Lewis. I really liked what I saw of Frasier at the Wild game. This line can do damage.
With Alec Martinez and Dustin Penner out, Loktionov and Voynov were brought up. Lokti is usually a center, but will play LW on the second line and Slava will pair with Mitchell. They had good chemistry together when Drew was out so putting them back together is the right move. This puts Drew with JMFJ which from previous times playing together, it could go either way. I’m a little confused and yet anticipating seeing Scuderi and Greene together. Both are more stay at home D-men. Could be a total shut down against the Ducks.
Clifford can step up with Westgarth out.
