Kingstradamas Results: Game 25

Knocked Out by a Bruin

Congratulations: To no one…again. No Exactas and there was not much movement in the standings. KingsFanFTW was the sole winner and is now within 3 points of exiting the basement. Cynic made the HUGE leap by moving up one plus/minus point. So instead of holding down 16th by himself, he is now tied with Hipcheck for 15th! Yep, it’s gotten that exciting down the stretch. Yaawwwn. Or as LBLocal put it, “Quite the myopic bunch, we are.”

On the bright side: Kings still hold onto a playoff spot. They are currently in 8th position.

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 hockey blogs and admired all across the Kingdom. Trumpets will sound wherever you go. There’s still loads of time to crack the Top 10.

Standings are sorted by Points, Win/Loss, Plus/Minus, Exacta/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).

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.

Kingstradamus: Game Predictions

Lucky number 7? Bruins haven't won in LA since 2007

PUCK PROPHECY

Game 25 of 32 – Kings vs. Bruins

Kings & Queen
Predictions
Score
trytodethroneus KINGS had an unusual 5pm game vs chi (4-0) a few weeks ago. Since this start is 1 hour later, the visitors get a token goal. Kings 4-1
40YearKingsFan The Kings can’t afford to be flat again in the first. I think they’ll come out flying and then weather a tough storm at the end. Kings 3-2 R
McSorleyfan Kings 5-2 versus Bahston. Looking back, the Bruins are on or they’re Really off, and when they’re off, teams have been getting 6 against them. When they’re on they get 3; I say they’re off facing the Kings, who score a few. Kings 5-2
Meg Jarrell The Kings are on a hot streak and focused on KEEPING their division lead, and the B’s are slumping hard. And we all know West > East! Kings 3-1
Forum Gold In front of 18,118 devoted fans the Kings post a 2-1 win in regulation against the defending Stanley Cup Champions. Penner and Brown score for the Kings and Quick comes up big again with a save on Tyler Seguin as time runs out. 7 in a row and were off to see the TWINS. Kings 2-1 R
The Royal Half Hey, remember that great season the Boston Bruins are having? They have 1 more point than the Los Angeles Kings. Kings 4-2
variable Why stop now? Kings 3-2
Jon Gillette Why the hell not? 6 in a row and looking great at exactly the right time. Maintain the lead in the Pacific and we see the Kings get go into the second round of the playoffs. There’s no limit from there. Kings 4-2
LBLocal The rough and tough Bruins going through major road woes. They keep it close late, but the Kings prevail. Kings 4-3
wavesinair Bruins haven’t beaten the Kings in LA since 2007 so why start now? Plus, Boston has lost 5 of 7, with many huge swings in scores. But tonight will be a tight game, ending in a shootout. Kings 3-2 SO
Dominick Battle Royale between 2 goalies who have nothing but respect for each other. Both will be on their game tonight. Kings 2-1 R
Matt Murray Since I’m pretty much all in at this point, I’m calling for the Kings to win and win big. Did I mention the Kings had won five straight vs. Boston until this season when that streak was snapped in Boston back in December? Revenge is sweet my friend. Kings 6-2
CB14 Jonathan Quick loves playing against Timmie Thomas, and
he’ll come out on top tonight with another amazing performance.
Kings 1-0
Player-X ?
Hipcheck I dont want this dream to end.  Kings 5-2
Cynic I don’t have time to give a reason. They just win tonight, OK? Is that alright with you? Why do you need a reason? Are you nosey? Do you have security issues that I have to reinforce? Can you not come up with something witty and funny on your own? Does peanut butter give you hives? Can you write your name in the snow without bending over? See, look what you’ve made me do..now I’M Nosey. Kings 3-1
Kingsfanone I’ve gotta keep going with the Boys, especially with how well they are playing. I think they keep playing well, now it’s just how Boston is playing. Seems there is some doubts leaking into their minds now, maybe some worries? We’ll see tonite, won’t we? Kings continue on this hot streak and solidify their position. Bring it! Kings 2-1
KC23 Carter gets his first hat trick as a King. Quick sets new King shut out record. Kings 5-0
KingsFanFTW Reason because we cant keep on winning Bruins 3-2 R

Kingstradamus: Game Predictions

Could this be the Kings first round match-up? It's very possible.

PUCK PROPHECY

Game 24 of 32 – Kings vs. Blues

Kings & Queen
Predictions
Scores
trytodethroneus Blues will tighten up after giving up 4 to the dux. KINGS will roll 4 lines and take advantage of the back-to-back for stl. Kings 2-1 R
40YearKingsFan Statement game. If the streak ends before the final game and the hoisting of the cup by our Kings at Staples,,,,,,, I will not be the one who called it. I’m thinking we’re six games in to running the table. Kings 4-1
McSorleyfan The Blues aren’t under the pressure the Kings are, but having lost recently to the Quacks will try to make a game of it. The Blues just won’t have enough to get the job done. Kings 3-2 OT
Meg Jarrell Thanks to a valiant effort from the Quacks, the Western Conference leading Blues are coming in to Staples with little less energy and a loss under their belts. The Kings are in attack mode and the Pacific Division is in sight. The power of Hanks is with us! Kings 3-1
Forum Gold Cue the music for the Blues. “I Love LA” will be blasting 4 times as the Kings continue the quest for 1st in the Pacific Division. Kopitar, Brown, King and Carter lead the way.  6 in a row as we welcome the Cup winners to finish the homestand with an A game against the B’s. Kings 4-2
The Royal Half The LA Kings get two goals from Mark Messie…. I mean Dustin Penner and beat the Blues. Kings 3-2
variable We’re rollin’ and playing just as well as anyone else. Plus, I’m liking this batch of Kool-Aid very much. Kings 3-2
Jon Gillette Well, if the Ducks can do it… Honestly, I don’t care about the score anymore, I only care about the 2 points in the standings and making a statement against potential playoff opposition. Kings 4-3
CB14 It might have taken me a little longer then the rest of you guys, but i’ve finally been convinced this team is for real. This isn’t just a game to help the Kings make the playoffs, this is a statement game, and the Kings will make a statement tonight against the best team in the NHL. Kings 4-1
wavesinair St. Louis is vulnerable after losing 2 of their last 3 and going into the second half of their back2back tonight. However, they will be ready. But so will the Kings, who have finally shown they want to move past their notoriously inconsistent tendencies. The first two games of this match up resulted in 5 goals total for each. The third game was a Blues shutout 1-0. Tonight? Kings 3-2 SO
Dominick Blues 2-1 Shoot out loss (might change my mind by Wednesday. St.Louis sucks in the shootout). Extremely tight defensively, with few gaps. O.K. I changed my mind (yeah I’m a little bitch). :) Kings 3-1
Matt Murray The Kings may be the hottest scoring team in the West since Feb. 25, going 9-3, but the Blues have been on fire as well, going 10-4 in that same span. But the Blues have been tapering off since clinching a playoff spot. Still, this will be a defensive struggle, as both teams are 1-2 in goals against. My guess is the Kings will be able to crack the seal at least twice, allowing Quick to do what he does best. Kings 2-0
LBLocal A defensive battle with both teams earning points tonight. Hello 1st place! Kings 3-2 SO
Player-X His lips are sealed. Just like the Go-Go’s. Kings 3-1
Hipcheck If the ducks can hang a 4 spot on the Blues so can the Kings given their recent scoring mojo. I see a very physical game with at least a couple of fighting majors handed out while I once again try to shakethe vision of bad memories involving Geoff Courtnall. Kings 4-2
Cynic We have the Blues number. Quick is on FI-UAH! We’re playing like a team possessed. Penner has actually scored in the last 2 games. We NEED these 2 points. TONS more to mention. We’re on a serious roll. Pick whatever reason makes you feel special. Kings 4-2
Kingsfanone I’ve gotta continue the streak! I’m counting on seeing the same Kings we’ve had lately, but moreso! Kopi goes nuts tonite……hat trick? Let’s Go Boys! Kings 4-1
KC23 ?
KingsFanFTW Blues win…Because they are number 1

Blues 3-2 R
