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

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.
