Moments before the Bruins scored the eventual game-winner in their 2-1 victory there was a little puck magic happening in Henrik Lundqvist’s crease.
A flipping puck flew over the Rangers goalie and bounced oh-so-close to the goal line before flying back out.
Luckily for the Bruins, Daniel Paille was there to bury the rebound.
Watch the bizarre play here:
Kings lose on ice … and on Twitter
The Kings’ Twitter account is known to be one of the best in the league, but it failed miserably during Game 4 against San Jose.
According to Deadspin.com, which caught a screen grab of the tweet, the Kings sent out a rape joke during the 2-1 loss to the Sharks.
According to the report, a special guest had taken over the account. The guest? Kevin Ryder from LA rock/alternative radio station KROQ. Ryder co-hosts ‘Kevin and Bean’, the station’s morning talk show.
We won’t repeat his tweet, but the Kings deleted it and then sent out this apology:
We apologize for the tweets that came from a guest of our organization. They were inappropriate and do not reflect the LA Kings.
Wayne Gretzky attended the Rangers-Bruins game at Madison Square Garden to watch his former team stink up the building.
Luckily for Wayne, his wife Janet Jones has aged gracefully, so even though the Rangers were pitiful (minus Henrik Lundqvist), the Hall of Famer had something fun to watch.
Ref’s quick whistle hurts Kings
Both the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings have seen questionable calls from the officials throughout their series. On Tuesday night, it was the Kings who were hurt the most by a blown call.
In the second period with LA down 2-0, Dustin Penner was on the doorstep as a deflection by Tyler Toffoli was trickling past San Jose goalie Antti Niemi. But the ref on the right post blew the whistle after he apparently lost sight of the puck.
It was a bad break for LA, and Penner wasn’t happy.
Burns channels his inner Blake
Was that Brent Burns or Rob Blake?
Burns, the San Jose Sharks forward/defenseman (you don’t see that very often in the NHL anymore) gave a monstrous check with his back side on the Kings’ Brad Richardson during Game 4.
It sure did look a whole lot like the big hits former King/Shark Rob Blake used to dish out in his heyday.
It was a great night for Burns, who has by far the best playoff beard of these 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs.
He also opened the scoring in the game just more than six minutes into the first period, and the Sharks went on to win 2-1 and even their series against LA at 2-2.
