Word Association: Five on Four, Kings vs Blue Jackets

As part of our preview for tonight’s Kings v Blue Jackets game we played Word Association with five Los Angeles players, asking them to react to the names of four Columbus players. Like usual, these were all done one-on-one, so no player heard what the other guy said – which is interesting when you compare their answers…

Rob Scuderi on:

Brandon Dubinsky – sandpaper
Jack Johnson – talented
Adrian Aucoin – veteran
Steve Mason – solid

Mike Richards on:

Dubinsky – hard worker
Johnson – former teammate
Aucoin – pass
Mason – big

Drew Doughty on:

Dubinsky – hit Scuderi from behind
Johnson – don’t want him to score against us
Aucoin – heavy slap shot from the back end, have an eye out
Mason – off side goaltender, we can get a few by him

Jeff Carter on:

Dubinsky – one of those guys you just don’t like out there
Johnson – strong, solid
Aucoin – been around for a while
Mason – big, athletic

Dustin Penner on:

Dubinsky – New York
Johnson – shitty music
Aucoin – A-squared
Mason – cement

We’ll have more Kings v Blue Jackets coverage throughout the day, including our First Goal Contest later this morning.

Until then, be sure to check out today’s MayorsManor show. We were joined by Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch for a game preview and to talk about the Jackets’ new GM, as well as Carter, Johnson, Richards, Dubinsky and a host of other topics.  It’s a guaranteed good time.

    Gotta love Penner’s response to Steve Mason, “Cement”. Is that cement as in ‘solid’, or cement as in ‘pylon’? Haha.

    I love that Penner went for the guy’s taste in music
