Video: Scrivens falls, Jones scores short handed

Dec 1, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

One second, Ben Scrivens looked to be in control of the puck; the next he was falling over.

That turned out to be trouble. The L.A. Kings goalie came out of his crease to handle of a long shoot-in with the Calgary Flames on the penalty kill, but stumbled over backwards, causing a loose puck.

Flames forward Paul Byron collected the puck, then, from on his belly, found Blair Jones, who fired it into the empty net to give Calgary a 1-0 lead in the second period of Saturday’s game.

It counted as a short-handed goal, with the Flames forced to kill of a major penalty for boarding assessed to defenseman Ladislav Smid, who was ejected from the game.

    Second time this year the Flames have beaten the Kings by scoring the winner in the last 30 seconds.

    What an amazing combination of total f***ups that was. The red light would suggest the Kings could not have played that any worse unless they’d all collided and ended up on the IR list. Wow.

    Jonathan Quick is a great goaltender, and Ben Scrivens is on his way to being the same … when they stay in the net. Once they come out, no good comes of it. Love ’em both; but, guys, please!?!? Stay in the freakin’ net (especially on PKs), and let your defensemen handle the shoot-ins!

      ‘Stand down’ Pat …

      What happened last night was disappointing indeed, especially with Tom Hanks in the crowd eh? But not to worry friend, as stuff like that happens to ‘everyone’ at some point or another during the season. Scrivens has been ‘brilliant’ thus far and he’s no doubt made Quickie very proud in his stead. Anyway, I just got off the phone with my old friend Stransky (physicist and expert in forensic causation analysis) and he said that what transpired last night was very much consistent with the phenomena of ‘anticyclonic disturbance’ which in layman’s terms is called a calm before the storm. Stransky believes that the LA Kings are about to go on a ‘pre-Christmas’ march which will leave the entire western conference in it’s wake as a ‘beaten and decimated’ force! We’ll see about that soon enough, as we’re back at it again tomorrow night against the Blues.

      GO KINGS GO !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
