KBPP Preview: Kings vs Blackhawks

So I go on the road for work, and the Kings go on the road for a couple of games. I have some pretty successful meetings and the Kings start looking like the Titanic. So Dean Lombardi makes his trade move and decides Jeff Carter is the man to help save the sinking ship.

Will it work? Or does this team have enough holes that it takes more than one move to plug them? Here's what your favorite Kings bloggers have to say.


The Royal Half from The Royal Half
  • Score:Blackhawks 6, Kings 5
  • Reason: Despite Jeff Carter's 5 goals, the Kings lose at home to the Blackhawks.
  • Record: 5-6

Jon Gillette from Rink Royalty 
  • Score: Kings 4, Hawks 1
  • Reason: If trading Jack Johnson didn't get it through to these guys, nothing will. Dean proved yesterday that he'll willing to make tough moves and the players have one game left to prove their worth.
  • Record: 4-7

Bobby Scribe from Surly and Scribe

  • Score: Blackhawks 5, Kings 4
  • Reason: An offensive explosion followed by offensive language
  • Record: 6-5

Meg Jarrell from Kings Court
(That's me so you don't need no stinking link --- you're already here!)
  • Score: Blackhawks 5, Kings 2
  • Reason: Because the more things change, the more they stay the same. And because I have absolutely NO IDEA what to expect from this team any more.
  • Record: 5-6

Hipcheck from LA Kings Road Talk Radio
  • Score: Kings 3, Blackhawks 2
  • Reason: Carter makes it happen in his first game with a pair of goal in his LA Kings Debut and Justin Williams out the other with a Kopi helper.
  • Record: 4-4
Wavesinair from Deep Inside the Kings@deepinsidekings
  • Score: Blackhawks 4, Kings 1
  • Reason: The slide continues to edge ever closer to the abyss. JMFJ nets the only goal. What? Did I miss something.
  • Record: 4-7

Matt Murray from Life In Hockeywood

  • Score: Kings 3, Blackhawks 1
  • Reason: The offense looks to get a jolt from Jeff "The Cannon" Carter, but it'll be Mike Richards who benefits, as the besties show instant chemistry. Also, the defense will show the depth that allowed Lombardi to trade away Jack Johnson.
  • Record: 4-8
