Hands Off my Hanzal: Let's Watch the Kings Play Hockey (Open Thread)

I like that he's unhappy because I'm old and I hate that style where these damn whippersnappers don't bend the brims of their hats. Also, he's a Coyotes fan, so that sucks about him too.

So Martin Hanzal won't be playing tonight because he didn't let up on a hit where he should have let up which ended up in a Kings player being launched face-first into the boards in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Fortunately, Shane Doan will be playing, despite not letting up on a hit where he should have let up which ended up in a Kings player being launched face-first into the boards (and I don't care about Trevor Lewis "turning", Doan has a history of suspensions and absolutely finished his check when he could have let up).

Phoenix Coyotes (3) vs. Los Angeles Kings (8) - 9:00 NBCSN: Phoenix lost their minds as a team during Game 2 and the Kings were more than willing to let them do that so they could take a 2-0 series advantage back to their own barn. The Kings are playing insanely well right now and don't look like they'll ever lose again. Naturally, this should be cause for concern.

Five for Howling (Coyotes)
Jewels from the Crown (Kings)

Prediction for tonight: Coyotes win in OT.
