This blog doesn’t do sports…usually. But, since the Stanley Cup Finals are going on right now (Game 3 is tonight), this could arguably fall under the “News – General” heading.
Plus, I love hockey.
My Bruins aren’t in it this year (*sniffle*), but the LA Kings are trying for their first cup ever and find themselves up 2-0 over the Devils, going into tonight’s game. The Kings’ surprising success is largely due to the incredible performance of their goalie, Jonathan Quick. Quick is having a career year, and some of his saves have been head-shakingly good.
Even if you’re not a hockey fan, this video gives you some of his best ones from this year in just under 4 short minutes. Just think how impressed your co-workers will be when you tell them that of course you knew that in the playoffs so far, Quick has a 1.44 GAA (goals against average) and a 9.47 Save Percentage.
And suddenly, you’ll be living in a little town called “Instant Sports Guru”, …population: YOU.
I’m excited for tonight’s game, and I don’t have a dog in this fight either!
I find myself rooting for LA, primarily due to (1) their never having won, (2) Quick, and (3) Brodeur needs another Cup likes he needs a third arm.
Kings are now up 3-0 after routing the Devils. It’s not over yet, but I think the Kings are a lock to win it all. If it can’t be the Bruins, then, let it the Kings wear the crown. 🙂 Pun intended.
New Jersey, resistance is futile…
