Fill In The Blank: Feedback from back-to-back wins by Kings

Jake Muzzin LA Kings MayorsManor
It’s time for more input from the readers.

For the first time since December 2008, the Kings played back-to-back home games on Monday and Tuesday.

The first contest featured a boring 40 minutes, where the Kings were limited to just six shots on goal, but began the third period with a 1-0 lead. Then came an offensive explosion against a usually stingy Nashville defense, resulting in the Kings scoring four unanswered goals and defeating the Predators 5-1.

After the game we asked people to complete this statement:

”The lasting memory from the Kings loss in Vancouver was _______.’

Following a thorough analysis of the feedback provided on twitter and facebook – and in honor of the six goals from the game – here are the six best answers…

Tina C. – BERNIER’s continued hot streak!!

Jace K. – Faser’s best game of the season.

Toby H. – Doughty and Muzzin bringin’ the pain!

@LisaTashjian – That the 3rd period seemed like a COMPLETELY different game than the first 2 periods.

@GregoryWells13 – Doughty channeling his inner Rob Blake.

@geefisky – Dwight King scoring his 1st of the year and looking up to the heaven’s as if to say, this one’s for you baby girl.

Moving on to the second game of the back-to-back set, Tuesday’s affair with St. Louis could be described as anything but boring. In fact, it was a see-saw event though two periods, filled with plenty of fights and a situation that had the home team trailing 4-2. Once again though, LA came out firing in the final stanza and posted four unanswered goals.

After the Kings 6-4 win over the Blues we asked people to complete this statement:

‘The turning point in the LA Kings flipping a 4-1 deficit into a 6-4 win over the Blues was ________.’

Using the feedback provided, here are the six best answers…

Bryan R. – The aggressiveness to attack the zone and put the puck on net. They never quit.

Bobbi w. – The swagger factor… nothing to be alarmed about, calm confidence.

Zach L. – The third period. Just the third period.

@Palancospasta – Kyle Clifford’s K.O.

@Almsmcq – Voy wonder’s goal. Like to think the rowdy-crowd at Staples may have them a boost too!

@rvp29 – 2 goals in 59 seconds at the beginning of the 3rd with Muzzle tying the score at 4-4

And one bonus answer…

@underactive – Still believing in my lucky cinnamon pretzel at the start of the 3rd. Haven’t lost at home while I’ve had one.
