When is ‘Jarret Stoll Gets a Goal’ day?

Jarret Stoll LA Kings MayorsManorIf you were following along on twitter yesterday, you probably noticed that one of the topics after Kings practice was Record Store Day.  For those unfamiliar, it’s an event designed to get people involved in supporting their local independent record stores. Bands – even the biggest bands you can think of – often create limited edition items to entice their fans to participate in this annual mid-April tradition.

Long time readers of MayorsManor also know that if we’re not talking hockey, the conversation often finds its way to music, baseball or UFC. So, in an effort to keep things light – after all, how many times can you ask about the power play with three days in between games? – we chatted up a few of the Kings about their favorite albums.

Mike Richards said he was a big rap fan and went with Eminem’s ‘Marshall Mathers LP.’ Joining him in that genre was Colin Fraser who said he liked ‘old school gangsta rap’ and then picked out ‘All Eyez on Me’ by Tupac.

As much as Kevin Westgarth lobbied him to take ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack (true story), Dustin Penner insisted on selecting ‘In Search of Sunrise 4 or 5.’ And although I claim to be a bit of a musicophile, I’ll admit I have no idea what he’s talking about.

Brad Richardson was all over the board though. First he talked about growing up on Conway Twitty and Hank Williams and even claimed to know the words to every George Strait song.  Yet, he went on to paint an image that was so bad, it just has to come true. “I loved Michael Jackson’s Thriller back in the day,” he said. “I didn’t rock the parachute pants, but I would have for sure if my parents would have bought me some!”

Like Richardson, Jarret Stoll started out country and then went a different direction with his picks.

“I love Garth Brooks, he’s probably my favorite,” said Stoll. Then when asked if there was anything current he needed to add to his music collection he said, “I like that new song ‘Wild Ones’ by Flo Rida. That’s a good one right now.”

Of course, things always come back to hockey when you’re talking to these guys.

“There’s a day for everything, isn’t there. When is ‘Jarret Stoll Gets a Goal’ day?” he asked with a huge laugh.

Well, he had the game-winning-goal in game two of the series.  But, with all the days off, that probably seems like a month ago.

So, if he scores tonight – and the Kings win – we promised to declare today his day.

As for any special preparations coming into game five, Stoll says he’ll approach things just like any other game.

“Some guys maybe get caught up into that and it kinda takes over their life and stuff.  I’m superstitious in certain ways, with certain things. But, it’s just normal game day stuff.  Just because it’s the playoffs, I’m not changing anything up. I want to get a haircut, but I’ve been waiting on that. Maybe I should have got one after the last loss though.”

Besides a series clinching win and perhaps a goal, Stoll is also looking forward to picking up a few other things north of the border…

“Some Canadian chocolate bars, some Ketchup chips, some Coffee Crisps,” he said, rattling off his wish list.

If they win tonight, maybe he can even get a haircut before round two.
