KINGS 2, Devils 1 (OT) – SCF Game 1 Real-Time Bullets
And we’re off…
Yes, suddenly Lewis is 6’4″ and menacing. No, Mike, that was
Dwight King. I wonder if we can go the whole game without hearing “regathers.”
I would like to keep it to under 10 uses of “knifes” as a verb.
I guess Eddie Olczyk never really watched the Terry Murray Kings. I think he just said that Sutter taught the Kings to defend.
Brown hit on Parise. Nice and clean. Penner Hit Purity Rating: 6/10.
(Penner said, of the so-called biggest hit of the
playoffs, something like: “it was so pure I enjoyed it.” He was the “checkee.”) Was that Voynov? Giveaway. Yes.
Fraser shoots, he scores. That was a huge play by
Jordan Nolan, right when Emerick was talking about the hugeness of King and Nolan. Clarkson shoots wide.
Dustin, don’t be stupid. They’re always going to call that.
Never mind. Replay shows that
Martin Brodeur is THE SHAME OF THE NHL. According to Dave Tippett. “The only place you can score on him.” The announcers are going to stick to that theory, I guess.
Peter Harrold on the power play. Did he hear Dustin Brown coming? I think “Brown’s” hit on Salvador was actually Kopitar.
Clarkson snake-bit already.
Good stick by Mitchell.
Zubrus on Carter. A little elbowy.
Lewis injured on that hit?
Have the Devils had a shot yet this period? I hesitate to type that.
Jesus. Did they forget to freeze these pucks? The thing is bouncing all over the place.
Slew foot by Stoll. At what point does Stoll decide what the hell, no one’s watching?
Olczyk just said, the Devils have to overload one side and then go to
the other side. ? I don’t think the Lewis shot off Brodeur’s knob would have gone in.
(Lewis not injured)
I haven’t heard a single regathers or knifes.
Nice save by Brodeur on Scuderi.
I like “sized up by Salvador.”
Emerick reports, shockingly, that the players are
communicating with each other on the ice. O Teamwork! Sutter doesn’t even bother putting out a power play unit. Just a little bit of everyone. King/Stoll…okay, Williams. So that’s a nod in the direction of a powerplay.
Whose terrible pass was that? I’m thinking Darryl Sydor.
Quick knocked that down with his glove. Quick = good.
Martinez, excellent on Henrique.
Voynov, excellent on Bernier.
Voynov’s shoulder, I guess I don’t blame you.
Bounces. That’s what happens when you crash ye olde net.
I don’t know why I just went Olde English.
Zach Parise, you’re so sneaky. Nicely done though. Too bad about the CAMERAS. And the ref saw it anyway.
Now, watch they’ll call it a goal.
Why does Pierre McGuire have to be between the benches? They should just put him in a plexiglass box and dangle him over the ice on cables.
Nice hit by Nolan.
Nice pounding on Brodeur by Nolan. (digging for puck, I mean)
Who missed THAT open net? Clarkson again?
REGATHERED. 8:30 left in the third.
KNIFED, at around 8:00. I wonder if the two are filed together in Emerick’s brain.
Guy with giant hammer comes out to fix pro-LA boards.
Jarret Stoll auditions for playoff goat. Quick says no. OT.
Who will get the game-winner? Voynov or Harrold.
Mitchell burned, saved by Voynov?
Lewis checks Henrique off-sides.
Gionta’s head doesn’t come up to Ponikarovsky’s shoulder.
Larry “Never Trust a Forward” Robinson.
Kovalchuk up the ice with Williams on defense. Please, no.
Nolan saves game by blocking Kovalchuk’s shot off faceoff.
Doughty to Williams…
Check it out. Brodeur tried to do the last second pad lift, like he did several times to great effect in the playoffs.
But apparently Kopitar watched “10 Best Saves” on NHL Tonight because
…he put the puck under the pad after Brodeur lifted it.
Kings have won 9 straight on the road this playoffs.
11 going back to last year’s post-season.
And they’re 2-0 in SCF game
twos. ones. My heroes of the game, in addition to the obvious Kopitar and Williams *for that amazing pass) are Voynov, for bailing out Mitchell, and Nolan, for the forecheck on goal one and for blocking the Kovalchuk shot.
