Well, I’m a little late with my report on the Kings this week. I was away on business and just got back.
Last Friday, the Kings earned their second win of the season, with a 3-2 win in overtime.
A penalty shot for the Kings in OT, NEVER SEEN THAT ONE BEFORE, but I’ll take the two points. The SPHL rule book says that in the final two minutes of overtime, any minor penalty results in an automatic penalty shot.(What a stupid rule, don’t ya think?)
Havoc over Kings
The Huntsville Havoc’s were way too much for the Kings on Tuesday morning as they beat up on the home team, winning 5-2.
The RiverKings’ powerplay was 1 for 6, but Huntsville made good on their powerplay chances as they were 3 for 6.
Kings netminder Scott Darling had a rough morning he stopped 22 of 27 shots. Not a good outing for Darling.
Huntsville netminder Sibbald was hot between the pipes as he stopped 19 of 21 shots.
The RiverKings are off until Friday, November 26, they’ll then be off to Knoxville to do battle with the Ice Bears.
The Kings next home game is Saturday, November 27 against the same Ice Bears.
Joe Sports thoughts:
The Kings had two winnable games this past week. We were lucky to even win one of the two.
It’s time for Derek Landmesser to light the fire of desire under some players’ seats.
But, then again, is he the right coach for this team?
Does this team have any depth?
1,2,3,4,5,6,7- That’s when I give you my evaluation of this team. The Kings are 2-4.
That’s the way I see it and I’m Joe Sports.
Have something to say to Mr.Sports.
