ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE PLAYOFFS?
Sometimes... Darryl Sutter just makes my job so easy:
(on Dustin Penner scoring again…)
SUTTER: “Good for him. He moved his feet, shot on the fly. He looked like Mark Messier. [grins]
Here is an artists' rendering of Darryl Sutter grinning after making a joke.
Obviously, Darryl Sutter was referring to this goal from Tuesday night in which Dustin Penner single-handedly ruined the San Jose Sharks season and Antti Niemi's confidence.
You know what... despite the 10 goals in 71 games as a member of the Los Angeles Kings... Dustin Penner does look a lot like Mark Messier.
Just like Messier, Dustin Penner's career began in a small town.
Just like Messier, he was part of a great youth movement in a non-traditional hockey market.
Just like Messier, he won the Stanley Cup at a young age.
Just like Messier, he's always made himself available to fans.
Just like Messier, he signed a controversial contract with a Canadian franchise.
Just like Messier, he's always been a hit with the ladies.
And just like Messier, he's looking to lead an underachieving team deep into the playoffs.
