Fill In The Blank: Game 12 feedback – Kings def Jackets

Kyle Clifford NHL Kings MayorsManor
It’s time for more input from the readers.

Kyle Clifford showed off some of more of his new offensive flare last night, giving the Kings a 1-0 lead in the second period. Later, Mike Richards added his second goal – and 400th point of his career – and that was all the Kings needed. Goaltender Jonathan Bernier received the surprise start, but didn’t face many shots and held on for a 2-1 win after the Blue Jackets scored a late goal.

Following the game we asked people to complete the following:

“‘The most shocking thing that happened in the Kings’ victory over the Blue Jackets was __________.” (FILL IN THE BLANK)

After scanning the feedback provided on twitter and facebook, here are the ten best answers…

Eric D. – No fight between Richards and Dubinsky.

Caleb R. – Mike Richards scored while NOT trying to score…

Trevor C. – Watching Clifford come in to his element as a force to be reckoned with. His play has stepped up beyond belief. And watching Bernier help solidify his case to play more. The team is finally gelling!

Nicole A. – When Clifford showed restraint from punching Boll, who had it coming.

Michael A. – The Fans booing Jack Johnson. JJ wanted to be a King, signed under market value to stay here, and was traded.

@cfbuckster – Jack Johnson did not have a hat trick.

@Dangoodkin When Jack Johnson took a shot that didn’t land 20 rows into the stands.

@John_Stephensx – Bernier w/ lower GAA, higher SV%, and Helper!

@JDStylz_ – Aucoin sitting on Brown and not getting a penalty for it.

@bethscott714 Bernier starting, and getting an assist. Brown being held down & #lumbus goal counting & no penalty

  1. I was anticipating your question while watching the game, but not “most shocking thing”, just your usual, “most memorable”. I was going to answer when Stoll anticipated Jack Johnson’s behind the back pass and totally schooled him on it.
