Kings Slashed for Their Excuses

April 04, 1987

The L.A. Kings may not lead the league (or even their division) in points, but they are way ahead in the category of excuses. According to the Kings, virtually every defeat can be directly attributed to a bad call by a referee. When a Jay Wells or Tiger Williams slashes someone from behind the play, he should be allowed to escape from a penalty because it's in the neutral zone.

If and when the Kings learn to play defense and skate, and remove Neanderthals like Wells and Williams from their roster, they will join the ranks of the Edmontons, Hartfords, Montreals and Philadelphias, and let their play speak for them.
