ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE PLAYOFFS?
YES!

Today... March 24th 2012, is the latest in a season that the Los Angeles Kings have been 1st in their division since 1990-1991 when the Kings were 3 points up on the Calgary Flames on their way to winning the Smythe... which of course was the only time in their 44 year history the Kings have won a division title.

Nothing's changed a bit, huh?
Holy ****, look at those "Goals For" stats across the board.

This is a much different Los Angeles Kings team than the one that faced the Boston Bruins on December 12, 2011 in John Steven's first game as LA Kings Interim Head Coach. Sure, we can talk about how this team is 10-3 since Jack Johnson was traded for Jeff Carter. How the team's average goal scoring has risen from 2.02 per game to 3.5. How Anze Kopitar has 14 points in these past 13 games and heck... how even Dustin Penner has 3 points in his last 3 games. But the biggest change for these Los Angeles Kings hasn't been Jeff Carter's affect on the scoresheet... it's been his influence in the dressing room.

That's right. Jeff Carter and his frosted tips have spread like wildfire throughout the Los Angeles Kings organization and they are what has this team on its season-high 6 game winning streak of the season. And when I say everyone in the LA Kings organization... I mean EVERYONE.

So as the LA Kings make a push not only for the playoffs, but for their 2nd Division Title in 44 seasons... let us start planning to support this team in the playoffs the only way we know how.

By frosting our playoff beards.

Besides... looking and acting like a team full of complete douches has worked really well in the past for other franchises, hasn't it?
