12/05 Road Music; @ Los Angeles Kings



Not much "Pre" to the pre-party, but here we go!

Today we visit our 1967 expansion classmates, the Kings. They've had a great start to the season, and are second (to the Sharks, naturally) in their division. Their success has been largely built on the scoring punch of one line- Anze Kopitar (14-20-34, fourth in the league in points), Ryan Smyth (9-14-23), and Justin Williams (8-12-20).  And those numbers are skewed a little: Ryan Smyth has been on IR since 11/16. They aren't fully armed and operational, but they are still dangerous. Despite missing Smyth, they've still won 4 of the last 5.

If you think southern hockey seems weird now, consider how things looked in 1967 when a franchise was planted in sunny SoCal!  But, here they remain. This also affords me the excuse to use an Adam Ant tune. I love the drums in this.

This is also your pre-party. This is sorta like stretching first, before the intensity of the GDT ... wouldn't want ya to pull a hammy finger muscle or something... Puck drops at 3PM Central

BTW, If you were attending in person, you'd get a Luc Robitaille bobblehead:
