    With eight Gold Glove defenders around him, all of whom could switch positions at any time.

    This run by the Kings has softened the understandably yet still disappointing recent struggles of the Dodgers.  The second goal was about as beautiful as anything I’ve seen in sports.  Teamwork perfected.

      wasn’t that just incredible! That goal was a daggar. You can see that NJ was like, ok there is no way were gonna score at least 3 goals to win this game now.

        yes, the dagger for sure, but I think NJ knew they couldn’t win after the Kings held off the 5-3 PP.  I’ve actually gotten to where I can’t wait for the opposing team to be on the PP.  Kings seem more dangerous when down a man.

           no you are right, after that 5-3 they were looking around like what the heck do we have to do to score! I’d say that was a body blow as well as that first goal… but that 2nd goal was right to the head….not only was it a goal but the save Quick made just before that was incredible and then because of that save the kings were able to counter and it was 2 cross ice passes..well u saw it. insane.

    and yes, J-Quick has been Kershawesque x10

    Amazingly enough, possibly even more dominant than that. The two goals that have gone in were redirections (one off his own defenseman) that no goalie could reasonably predict. Absolutely amazing.

    Dare I ask who he is?

      LA Kings (ice hockey) goalie, absolutely on fire in the playoffs.

    actually better, if that’s possible. He alters both sides of the game. Kershaw can only control one side.

       Well, Kershaw was nearly a Silver Slugger.

    MLB.com on the latest Dodgers draft pick, Ross Stripling, pitcher from Texas A&M:
    In 2011, Stripling led college baseball with 14 wins, and he has been even better this year. He’s struck out almost a batter an inning and threw a no-hitter in early May. Relatively new to pitching, he has a good fastball and curveball, but his changeup needs work. He has good command and rarely walks batters and could move through the Minors quickly as a reliever.

      He’s on twitter too
      Ross Stripling ‏@RossStriplingHollywood bound! So happy and excited to be a LA Dodger!#dodgerblue #Dodgers

    Also, MLB on Onelki Garcia, a Cuban defector who wasn’t eligible to be drafted last year:
    The Cuban defector thought he’d be a free agent upon coming to the United States, but instead he was declared eligible for the 2011 Draft. That was reversed just prior to the Draft’s start, but Garcia was officially made eligible again in this year’s class. The big, strong left-hander pitched well in Puerto Rico over the winter and has been working out in Los Angeles to prepare for the Draft. He has the chance to have a very good power combination in his fastball and hard curve. Many see him as a reliever because of a lack of a real changeup and some command issues. His pure stuff could get him drafted fairly early, though there was some talk about signability as the Draft approached.

    Been following the Kings since 1972 and I’m holding the party line right now.  I’m enjoying the run but they haven’t won anything yet.  Hopefully we’ll have a better conversation again on Wednesday.

      There is absolutely zero chance the Devils, or any hockey team on planet Earth for that matter, that could beat Quick and the Kings four straight – it’s O V E R.

    Yes, Quick, for this season at least, is the CY Young of hockey.  He’s been that good- of course, with a little help from his friends… More important to the teams success is that these Kings are playing like the 1920′s era Yankees.
