Yesterday, while lounging around at home, I recieved a text from my sister asking if I want tickets to the Kings game, of course that was a quick yes. Two great seats, free parking and VIP to the Lexus Club, SWEET!
I invited a friend, who is a die hard Kings fan like myself. And in front of a standing-room-only crowd the Kings did not disappoint, winning 4-1 over the Ducks, in their second meeting this season.
The first period was all defense from both teams and with a 0-0 ending of the period, we knew both teams had to step up the shooting on net. In the second, with fans still not in their seats from dining, the Kings scored first, but 32 seconds later they gave up a goal that tied the game 1-1.
After though, the Kings went on to score three goals in the second period and shut down the Ducks the rest of the way.
The Kings are now three points ahead of the Ducks, but they still have a long way to prove themselves and the playoffs again.
I have to say though, it was nice to see the crowd so packed at Staples Center for a hockey game and hopefully it will continue.
