Does this photo conjure up a few memories? Not the greatest building in the world (ok, it was horrible) but it sure was home to some great moments in Kings history. With that in mind, here’s to creating new good times! So go ahead and get the conversation started…
Notes: I rarely, if ever predict certain wins, but I’m doing it tonight.
|Forum Gold||3rd time is the charm. For the final time this season the LA Kings win 2-1 in regulation and send the Devils and their NBC network Home Alone. Doc and the boys are so choked up with emotion they hand over the broadcast to Hall of famer Bob Miller to call the final minute and the ceremony to follow. Carter and Williams light the lamp and the most loyal fanbase in the city goes wild. Paul stays up all night updating Kings News Dailly to the thrill of all the fans. June 11, 2012, The day the Los Angeles Kings Hockey Club arrives.||Kings 2-1 R|
|trytodethroneus||devils are having to endure another 3000 mile trip west, and playing the next day. Remember game 3?||Kings 3-1|
|Jon Gillette||Tonight’s the night! The Kings have gotten the memo according to what I read from Drew Doughty. The Devils are playing mind games and it’s time to put an end to it. Let’s see the team that showed up for Game 3!||Kings 4-1|
|40YearKingsFan||This is our game 7 and I believe our boys will respond accordingly. We owned this series and cannot allow the crapshoot of a game 7. We get the bounces tonight, we get the calls tonight, we get the Cup tonight.||Kings 3-1|
|The Royal Half||Because it’s about time.||Kings 12-2|
Everything up until now was just a tease, because our boys plan on going out with a BIG BANG — and a shut out for our MVP/Conn Smythe goalie. Yes, I’m laying it ALL on the line here, but there’s nothing left to do but BELIEVE.
|Player X||End of 1st- Kings 0, Devils 1
End of 2nd-Kings 2, Devils 1
2 minutes to go in 3rd-Kings 3, Devils 1
Final Score-Kings 4, Devils 1.
|variable||Well…Our time is now – it has to be. I think we want to have a parade on Wednesday instead of a game 7. The Kings look adversity in the eyes and melt it, sending the Devils back to hell (which happens to be located in Newark ironically). We make our own history tonight and begin a new, bright era for Kings hockey. Let the coronation and crowning begin!!!||Kings 3-1|
|Paul Armbruster||I made copies of this email in my drafts for future use. This is the LAST ONE of the copies I made weeks ago! How insane is that? It’s clear that this prediction game is the reason for the Kings success ;) I highly recommend we ALL get in our predictions or suffer the consequences. Please don’t let that happen! With that said, Game 6 is ours…and I do mean OURS…the entire City of LA wins tonight and the dream finally becomes reality.||Kings 4-0|
*Predictions are sorted by current standings. Bloggers are in bold and linked to their respective websites.
Scoring: A win gets you 2 points. Or a correct score gets you 3 points (exacta). Or a correct score (along with regulation, overtime or shootout correct) gets you 4 points (perfecta). Standings will be sorted by Points, Win/Loss, Plus/Minus, Exacta/Perfecta.
Plus/Minus: Minuses are only counted if you lose, meaning that the worst you can do is Even if you win. If you lose, you get a -1 for every goal you’re wrong in your prediction. Then one of the following… If you predict one correct score then you get a +1. If you predict the total number of goals in the game correct then you get a +1. If you predict the exact score then you get a +3. If you predict the exact score and ending (reg/ot/so) then you get a +4.
The Winner: Will get a trophy if the Kings get past the first round. Otherwise, I think we’ll all be so pissed, no one will care.
