Word Association: Six Kings take on Four Blackhawks

word association - Chicago Blackhaws MayorsManor
Sunday afternoon the suddenly surging Kings will get a chance to extract a little revenge on the red-hot Blackhawks in Chicago.  It was just last month that the two teams met in Los Angeles on opening day of the 2013 season.   That game was a decisive win for the road team and the Kings are looking to repay the favor at the United Center.

Now, as part of our preview of the re-match we played Word Association with six Los Angeles players, asking them to react to the names of four Chicago 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…

Patrick Kane:

Jonathan Quick – Good mitts
Rob Scuderi – Crafty
Mike Richards – Skilled
Drew Doughty – Silky smooth with the puck, you have to be aware of him out on the ice.
Jeff Carter – Skill one-on-one
Dustin Penner – Mullet

Jonathan Toews:

Quick – Good shot
Scuderi – Strong
Richards – Hard working
Doughty – Works hard, he’s a good leader and he’s going to battle down low for a spot on the ice.
Carter – Power
Penner – Serious

Brent Seabrook:

Quick – Solid D-man
Scuderi – Wiley
Richards – Smart
Doughty – Solid defenseman, good shot from the back end, good guy off the ice
Carter – Strong, solid
Penner – A sea brook

Corey Crawford:

Quick – Solid goalie
Scuderi – Experienced
Richards – Big
Doughty – Different kind of goalie. Sometimes he’ll play great against us, sometimes he won’t. I think we’ve just got to get a lot of shots on him and he’ll let a few by.
Carter – Big, blocker, covers a lot of net
Penner – Marc

Be sure to check out the latest edition of the MayorsManor show. We were joined by Tab Bamford of The Fourth Period magazine for a preview of the Kings v Blackhawks game.  He’s based in Chicago and gives us all the latest scoop from the Windy City – plus he argues that Jonathan Toews is better than Anze Kopitar.
