Fill in the Blank: Gm18 – readers react to Kings 2-1 win over Red Wings

It’s time for more input from the readers.

After coming out of the gates extremely slow on Wednesday night, the Kings trailed 1-0 when a fluky goal somehow made it past Jonathan Bernier – something he was still having trouble explaining after the game. Like they did on Monday against the Ducks though, the home team came out ready to play in the third period, eventually scoring two goals to seal their fifth win a row.

Following the game we asked people to complete this statement:

‘The most memorable moment in LA Kings 2-1 win over the Red Wings was _____.’ (FILL IN THE BLANK)

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

Jerrod C. – Doughty’s diving poke check.

Tyler P. – The silence from the Wings fans at Staples

Caleb R. – Kopi pressing the B button while pulling back on the left lever before scoring game winner. #XBOX

Callon T. – Besides the Kopi move, and Bernie stepping up again and showing how good he can be, how about Lewie and Kinger showing how to do work against the boards?

Steve N. – Kopi being Kopi. Sick move.

Ever M. – When the Red Wings fans shut up after Carter’s goal.

Eric P. – The fact that the Wings didn’t even really score against LA, even if the back of Bernier’s helmet did.

@shellyjFAF – Detroit completely forgetting to cover one of the most dangerous players on the ice.

@friarpuck – Hearing the Red Wings fans around me go suddenly silent after Kopitar’s goal.

@Swannimal – Somehow Carter scoring 5-hole with his back to the net & Howard.

  1. I think I’ve watched the Carter goal maybe 10 times already and I never see it coming. Even when the announcers go through the replay in slow motion and break it down piece by piece, I have no idea how that happened.

    Carts is just that amazing.

  2. KopiSTAR and his magic stick!

  3. The typical mike and jeff play. Bringing a little philly to l.a. unfortunately just as memorable was the most stationary 5 on 3 PP ever lol.
