Back In Black with Russians

The LA Kings game tomorrow night vs the Washington Capitols marks more than just LA's chance to get back that squeeker of a game the lost to them last year. It also features the release of the teams 3rd jersey (as noted above) and the celebration of Russian Heritage all before the puck is dropped to start the game.

As for the last game, it was an OT decision, 4-3 in the end but LA was close. Very close. I'm counting on the Kings to reverse that score this time around... and I'm actually feeling positive that they can achieve that task. Washington's powerhouse or not, the Kings have a far stronger team this year than last and if they were 'close' last year, who knows?

I guess only time will tell.

UPDATE: The 'Back in Black' celebration is actually on Saturday night... not tonight. Ooops.

I was thrilled to see how well they played against the Caps in this game. Now only if they could play like that ALL the time. What happened to all of our scoring?!

I'm not totally sure Drunken. It's been a really rough couple of weeks watching the guys play. You're right though, that Caps game was amazing. Watching Doughty stop Ovie dead in his tracks several times was lovely.

Nice to see a fellow Kings fan drop by, by the way.
