    Game one will be defining …

    I personally feel that Wednesday night will go a “long” way in determining who takes the Stanley Cup. If our Kings pull it off, then the juggernaut just keeps rolling ! But if the Devils prevail, then I fear that the landscape may change for us in a difficult way ? The bottom line is that Game one will be “massive” in more ways than one. Nonetheless, I’m convinced that our Kings “can and will” carry the day ! :)

    GO KINGS GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
