I needled the Kings rookies for getting lumped by the Coyotes rookies yesterday, so I thought it would be polite to mention that the Kings prevailed in today's matchup, 4 to 0. Brayden Schenn, the Kings' first-round pick this year, scored the first two goals.
I know I'd rather be watching hockey right now than the NFL game that is presently on television. I love pro football, but why did NBC and the league decide to ruin opening night by featuring the loathsome Pittsburgh Steelers?
Yes, I am both a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Kings. And, yes, I have a soft spot for underdogs.
