 Torn (take 2)!!!

 

Ok, I'm glad this one is over....for many reasons. 

 

1st PERIOD:

Kings did more firing then Donald Trump in the frame. Out shooting the Sabres 15-2 but alas….no score

 

2nd PERIOD:

The Kings kept the pucks a flyn’ towards  Robin Lehner but NADA!!! Yes, Lehner was solid but the shots weren’t grade A chances either.

 

Period ends scoreless. You could just HEAR the finger nails being chewed.

 

3rd PERIOD:

Kings strike early, just :36 seconds into the frame a scrum in front of Lehner the puck comes to Kopitar who finds a wide open Jerome Iginla and he buries it for his 11th of the season. 1-0 Kings.

 

Then, as a Kings PP expires Adrian Kempe wheels the puck out of the Kings zone and up the RW boards. Looses it but Dustin Brown picks a Sabres pocket and gets the puck to Doughty, who finds an open Kempe and he fires it past Lehner for his 2nd and it’s 2-0 Kings.

 

Sabres pull Lenher but no dice. Game ends 2-0.

 

TWO. HUGE. POINTS!!!

 

The bad news....the Blues ALSO won so the Kings are still 4 points out of a wild card spot.

 

NOTES:

**With the assist on the Iginla goal that’s 500 NHL points for Dustin Brown.
