Ladies and gentlemen... our long national nightmare is over.
Dustin Penner had 2 assists... one of which was a secondary assist!
Congrats to @horbayj who guessed that Dustin Penner would get his 1st point of the night (and 2nd of the season!) at 9:45 of the 2nd period... only 13 seconds off the actual time of the amazing Mike Richards goal that Penner earned a secondary assist on. He gets his choice of t-shirt from The Royal Half Gift Shoppe. Despite being an Avalanche fan, @horbayj is a pretty good dude and you should check out his blog at Mile High Sticking. So now that Dustin Penner is tied with Matt Greene with 3 points on the season, he must be pretty, pretty, pretty pleased, right? RIGHT?!?
Why so sad, Dustin?
Oh... maybe it's because you still don't have a goal on the season.
PREDATORS 3, KINGS 4
The LA Kings beat a bunch of well-coached non-superstars. The losing streak is over, I guess. But are the losing ways?
