R.I.P. Deep Inside

2009-2012

With a not-so-heavy heart, I must report to you that Deep Inside the Kings has died. It was fun here while it lasted but it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. While it is not sad in any way, it does mark the start of a new adventure. I hope you will join me on my new site. Come on over and check it out. Any and all feedback is welcomed. Seriously, I would appreciate input, both positive and negative. After all, it’s for you… the LA Kings Fan.

Kingstradamus: Game Predictions

Insert Cheesy "Flame" Reference Here...

PUCK PROPHECY

Game 27 of 32 – Kings vs. Flames

Kings & Queen
Predictions
Score
trytodethroneus KINGS won’t give the flamers any ppg that dallas was so generous with the other night. Hopefully Quick won’t be generous, either. Kings 3-1
40YearKingsFan Because if they lose this one their season begins swirling in the toilet bowl and they’re not ready for that.  They will bring everything they have and squeak out a win over a desperate Calgary team. Kings 2-1 R
McSorleyfan I’m going with Kings 4-2. I expect some rather banged up boys are playing against the Flames tonight. While I’m not sure about this one, going Kings 4-2 Regulation because, if we can’t get this one, we’re in trouble so deep not much else matters. Kings 4-2
variable I think this might be one of the most surprisingly physical games of the season because it’s the last time Darryl and Brent will meet during the regular season and because both team have so much at stake. The Kings come out shooting and take the lead early on, only to see the Flames come back and make a game of it.  Kings prevail, though, but it won’t come easy. Kings 3-2
Meg Jarrell Because without a win, Kings playoff hopes are going up in flames… Kings 3-1
Forum Gold “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball”. Hold on a minute Vince. The Sutter brothers have a 3-2 leauge of their own going on and its the ninth inning. I’m so worried that the ex- Kings are going to get us but I am a believer and am going with my heart on this one and believe the box score will show Kings 3 Calgary 2 in extra innings, I mean regulation.  Must game for the Kingdom. Kings 3-2 R
The Royal Half Because the Kings are the most abusive relationship I’ve ever been in. Kings 1-0 SO
LBLocal
A must win for both teams but Coach Mumbles finds a way to pull out a ‘W’
Kings 3-2 SO
wavesinair Flames are in a prime position to salvage their season and put the hurt on the Kings as well as the other Sutter brother. Last time they played, the Flames won 1-0 and pushed the Kings into 9th, while taking over 8th. Deja Vu all over again? I’m afraid of this game, but I’m banking on the ‘real’ Kings to show up and get the win. I’d like to bookend the season series with a solid win (just like they did in the first game), as opposed to scoring only one goal in the previous 2 games combined. The offense is back and it’s pissed. Kings 4-1
Matt Murray These two teams are evenly matched and are both scrambling for a playoff position. The Flames just snapped a five-game skid on Monday, whiile the Kings are trying to avoid a losing streak of their own. My guess is the Kings have more in the tank, and should be able to get past the Flames. (empty-netter by Kopitar) Kings 3-1
Jon Gillette Because that’s what HAS to happen! Kings 4-2
CB14 This is a HUGE game for both teams tonight. Will the Kings
offense show back up? I don’t think so, unfortunately. :(
Flames 2-1
Dominick Score some goals for fucks sake! Kings 3-2 R
Player-X He’s burning up with playoff desire… Flames 2-1
Kingsfanone The Kings continue their mental slide, and just can’t seem to get Murray’s brainwashing cleansed completely out. This loss isn’t the backbreaker keeping them out if the playoffs. That one was the el-foldo vs the Wings, and they can’t recover. You can say what you wish, but if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, well, neither SoCal team is going to make it. The difference is the Kings just don’t know it yet.
As I have continued to rant, this team is NOT mentally strong. They keep proving it. Tonite is another example. Sad.
Flames 2-0
Cynic We can’t seem to score in the last 2 losses. Calgary will forecheck us HARD, which is what the last 2 teams did. It’ll be tough, but Calgary turnovers and penalties from overtrying will get us a lucky 2-1 win. Not a lot of faith in this team right now after seeing some lackluster play the last 2. Passing has been horrible, positioning just as bad. Gotta tighten things up to win. Kings 2-1 R
Hipcheck Just as so not to be characterized as a pessimist.. I’m picking the Kings the rest of the season. Ill go Kings 9 Calgary 3 with taylor, sandstrom, and granato all getting hat tricks. Kings 9-3
KC23 Kopitar line gets back on track. Kings 4-1
KingsFanFTW The Reality Kings are back where they cant seem to find the back of the net but still get a win… Kings 2-1 R

*Predictions are sorted by current standings. Bloggers are in bold and linked to their respective websites.

What is this about? Matt Murray from Life in Hockeywood proposed a Kings blogger prediction panel for the last 32 games of the season. Seven websites are represented on the panel and we simply predict the score of the game and give a reason why we believe it will turn out that way. Also invited are commenters from LA Kings Insider to compete against us!

Playing: Simply predict the score of the game and give a reason why you think it will go that way. I will email you before every game to get your predictions.

Scoring: A win gets you 2 points. Or a correct score gets you 3 points (exacta). Or a correct score (along with regulation, overtime or shootout correct) gets you 4 points (perfecta). Standings will be sorted by Points, Win/Loss, Plus/Minus, Exacta/Perfecta.

Playoffs: The Top 10 predictors in the standings at the end of the regular season will qualify for the esteemed Playoff Prediction Panel. You will be looked upon for guidance on blogs and admired all across the Kingdom. Trumpets will sound wherever you go. There’s still loads of time to crack the Top 10.

Plus/Minus: Minus are only counted if you lose. Otherwise, the worst you can get is Even. If you lose, you get a -1 for every goal you’re wrong in your prediction. Then one of the following… If you predict one correct score then you get a +1. If you predict the total number of goals in the game correct then you get a +1. If you predict the exact score then you get a +3. If you predict the exact score and ending (reg/ot/so) then you get a +4.

What do I win?: Not sure yet. The winner will get something though.

Kingstradamas Results: Game 26

The Big Tease: 2 goals in 3 games isn't gonna cut it.

Congratulations: No Exactas for the 3rd straight game. Kinda like the Kings. There was a shakeup in the standings however. The venerable Matt Murray jumped back into a playoff spot, displacing fellow blogger, Jon Gillette who slipped into 11th. With the ‘win’ variable slid into 4th place and is now the top ranked blogger. It’s looking more and more like our game is mirroring the west standings and that it will come down to the last game to determine who makes it into the playoffs and who doesn’t. That is, if the Kings make it! Please, please, please make it Kings!

On the bright side: As I’m sure you know, the Kings still have their playoff fate in their hands with a game in hand over the Yotes.

Standings are determined by the following order:

  • Most points
  • Number of wins
  • Plus/Minus
  • Number of Exactas/Perfecta

A win gets you 2 points. Or a correct score gets you 3 points (exacta). Or a correct score (along with regulation, overtime or shootout correct) gets you 4 points (perfecta).

Playoffs: The Top 10 predictors in the standings at the end of the regular season will qualify for the (cough, cough) esteemed Playoff Prediction Panel. You will be looked upon for guidance on hockey blogs and admired all across the Kingdom. Trumpets will sound wherever you go. The panel will only happen if the Kings make the playoffs.

Calculating Plus/Minus: Minuses are only counted if you lose, meaning that the worst you can do is Even if you win. If you lose, you get a -1 for every goal you’re wrong in your prediction. Then one of the following… If you predict one correct score then you get a +1. If you predict the total number of goals in the game correct then you get a +1. If you predict the exact score then you get a +3. If you predict the exact score and ending (reg/ot/so) then you get a +4.

PUCK PROPHECY

Game 26 of 32 – Kings vs. Canucks

Kings & Queen
Predictions
Score
trytodethroneus ‘nucks 1st home game back from a 4 games in 6 days roadie, minus a ginger. KINGS will do just enough to get by tonight. Kings 3-2 R
40YearKingsFan Because if we’re seriously a playoff team, we bounce back.  The playoffs are as much about how you respond to a loss as they are about anything.  My faith is in Sutter’s experience on this one. Kings 4-2
McSorleyfan The ‘Nucks come out flat-footed and the KIngs get 2 goals early; Ginger 1 is lost without Ginger 2, and wanders aimlessly while drooling and muttering Oh Canada under his breath. Kings 3-1
Meg Jarrell This is an enemy we know. An enemy we hate. A win we now desperately need. It will be done. Kings 3-2
Forum Gold We play well in this building and can beat Luongo so Kings win 3-1 and get back on track with goals from Williams, Brown and Carter. Kings 3-1
The Royal Half Saturday the Kings struggled to get the puck past an All-World Goaltender. At least tonight in Vancouver they don’t have to worry about that. Kings 5-2
variable I kind of want to give two predictions today:  3-1 Vancouver if Cory Schneider starts and 3-1 Kings if Roberto Luongo does.  Bobby Lou has been up and down of late.  He’s been strong his last two starts which means he’s due to have a clunker tonight if he’s in net.  On the other hand, Schneider has been excellent all season long and has only allowed 10 goals in his last 7 appearances. In many ways, the Kings aspire to roll four lines consistently like the Nyuks, and like their last opponent, the Bruins.  Great game against Boston, but the Kings came up just a bounce short.  I don’t like going against the team during this vital stretch, but this is gonna be a tough one to pull out.  And I really hate the Green Men, too. Nucks 3-1
Jon Gillette I’m sticking with it! We’ve all seen how easy it is to get Vancouver off their game. Play physical and win the game. Kings 4-2
LBLocal {HOPE I’M WRONG, HOPE I’M WRONG, HOPE I’M WRONG} Nucks 4-3 SO
wavesinair Stop the bleeding or take another step back? Hmmm. The Kings haven’t been much of a rebound team this season. But they are playing really well and the Canuckleheads don’t have a whole lot of incentive right now after wrapping up their division. I’m thinking the Kings either they score 5 or 1 tonight. I’m thinking they’ll need a 2 game setback to properly motivate them. If they win tonight, they win the Pacific, if not, they barely squeak in and face either the Blues or these guys. Prove me wrong tonight boys. Nucks 3-1
Dominick Silent but deadly. Kings 4-1
Matt Murray The luster is off of this late-season revival. Their loss to Boston caused them to fall out of the third spot and into the 8th spot. That shows you just how tight this race is. Vancouver is looking to kick off their homestand with a bang. They’ll get that tonight. Nucks 3-2
CB14 Will the Kings offense come alive again? I hope so, but
i’m not betting on it.
Nucks 3-1
Player-X A Canuck has his tongue. Nucks 3-2 OT
Hipcheck Kings avenge the Boston loss and get back to putting 4 spots on the board. 4 line scoring mojo pays dividends and a final 3rd period line brawl sees superman Jon Quick snap Alex Burrows spine over his knee, roll Burrows into a ball and drop kick him into the cheap seats of GM place. Kings 4-2
Cynic Quick gets pissed for not shutting the door last game. Stones the Nucks by standing on his head. This game will make the Canucks NOT want to face us in the playoffs. We also hate the Canucks. Reason enough to get the win and leave them severely beaten. Kings 2-0
Kingsfanone Mainly cuz I heard from someone that its a 3-2 league, and the Kings have a ways to go to reach the killer instinct of the Nucks. Hate them, but gotta admire their mental toughness, or “dirty play.” Maybe some of it rubs off on our boys tonite, maybe not. We’ll see. This is only a test. (where have I heard that before?) Go Kings! Nucks 3-2
KC23 The Kings offense has him speechless. Kings 3-2
KingsFanFTW Because Kings want to get in the playoffs! Well i do want them so it s must win!! Kings 3-1
