Full credit to the Kings on a hard work effort from start to finish to snap their losing streak at two while stretching the Dogs losing streak to three.
The Kings held off the early Bulldog pressure and killed off a penalty and shortly thereafter scored on a mad battle on a scramble to lead 1-0 after one. They stretched it to 2-0 at the midway point of the game on the power play and never looked back as they never let the Dogs get much going in the way of sustained pressure.
It never ceases to amaze me how crazy this game can swing from one way to another so quickly, as predictable as it may be in some instances. One moment you have won four in a row and goals come in bunches, the next you have lost tree and goals are hard to come by.
I can't remember the team ever being shutout on back-to-back games on home ice before...but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened! I can hear Bruce shuffling record books right now. Here's hoping the players and their families enjoy some much needed time together before the Chiefs come in on Saturday as Devin Timberlake's #18 gets retired.
