Well… they played Detroit to a standstill… and really only lost out to their experience. Now… the C’s are out West for 4 games in 5 days. Two sets of back-to-backs that balances a couple of patsies (Seattle, Sacramento) with a couple of tough teams (L.A., Utah).
Can we expect a loss on this trip? Probably. Even the best of the best have a hard time sweeping 4 teams in 5 days on the opposite coast. If I had to pick the loss… it’s probably Utah because they’re tough down low and that poses problems for the C’s. But that’s later… tonight… we’ll ease into it by smacking the Kings around a bit. I’ll be awake for the whole thing… so we’ll have a post game update while Chuck gets his beauty rest. I hope he uses the cucumber beautifiying mask and mud wrap I got him for Christmas.
