Small things like that..... *S*
Those chances that the Kings had in game 4 HAD BEEN going thier way so far in these playoffs... but in game 4 they missed those chances and were the ones hitting the posts (not like the oppo teams have been doing behind Quick)... There was one breakaway in game 4 where Brodeur went down way to early and left the whole stick side open for a player who could have made a small move that way BUT the Kings failed to score that BIG goal on that play.
Don't get me wrong... I am on the Kings 100% for game 5... I just don't want to put the cart before the horse (like I did prior to game 4)... Did you see Dustin Brown's interviews after game 3...??? He sounded as if he was beginning to take winning the Cup as a "gimmie" from here on out (as if they only had to show up one more time)... and that gave me a bad feeling but I still bet on the Kings in game 4.
Like I said... Even I was in a party mode for game 4 and it backfired on me.
I really hope that was the wake up call that the Kings needed to realize that they are gonna have to TAKE the Cup because NJ is not going to just give it to them because they are down in the series.
NJ can be a sneaky friggin team that is hard to kill if you allow them to stay in it... Just see this...
(Scroll down to the series)
I didn't realize it has been 12 years already... Man I'm getting old fast... ... I still remember this series like yesterday. I was working in construction and doing a job at an oil refinery when this series happened... I would not listen to the radio on the way home because I would Tivo the games and watch when I got home... When I got home to watch game 7... I noticed that my wife and son seemed somber... I thought they were messing with me by looking that way but then I realized they were sincerely sad... I knew immediately that the Flyers had lost that game 7 and blown that 3-1 series lead for a chance to make the SCFinals.
I have never been that pissed off about a sporting event... even to this day... which is one of the biggest reasons that I can't stand the NJD's.
Different sport BUT... In this 2012 French Open just a few days ago... Tsonga had FOUR match points and was ON SERVE vs Djokovic... Tsonga was up 2 games to 1 on him also... Tsonga lost that game, set and the match... and was left crying with a towel over his head after the match.
I don't want the Kings to have that happen to them... ESPECIALLY by those %*#^*&%# from NJ.
I hope all my words of caution are surpassed by the Kings play on Saturday night...
