Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more!
Last night the Los Angeles Kings beat the Phoenix Coyotes by a score of 7-4, which, incidentally, is a difference of three goals, which a certain King, named Dwight King, also incidentally, scored exactly that amount during the game (worst sentence ever, I know… Please bear with me, I’m ill).
One of my favorite Tweeters and hockey people writer guys, Dave Lozo (you can follow him here: @DaveLozo) pointed out that the Kings’ Dwight King’s a pretty lucky guy:
Think about how lucky Dwight King is. He could've been named Dwight Panther or Dwight Jet or Dwight Sabre. He really caught a career break.

I think Dwight Flyer would probably be the worst, but Dwight King could also have been had the distinct privilege of being Dwight Shark, and man, he’d probably have all the goals this season.
I’ll catch you guys next week when I’m not under the weather and can actually put something worth reading together! But seriously, Nyquil is weird…
