ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE PLAYOFFS?
NO.

Oh, good. Jimmy Howard is returning to the Detroit Red Wings lineup tonight. Maybe now the Los Angeles Kings will be able to score since they couldn't win against career minor leaguer, Joey MacDonald. You remember that 4-3 loss from last Friday night don't you? I'm sure Mike Richards still does.

THE FIVE WORST NIGHTS OF MIKE RICHARDS' LIFE:

5. December 16, 2011 - Barry Bonds is sentenced to 2 years probation.

4. Whatever night this photo shoot took place on.

3. October 6, 2009 - The Ed Hardy Outlet in Downtown Los Angeles closes.

2. June 23rd, 2011. Early Afternoon. Jeff Carter is traded to Columbus.

1. March 9th, 2012 - Mike Richards plays a game against the Detroit Red Wings

Very curious to see how this team comes out tonight against the Red Wings after last Friday's debacle.
