Kings Still The ‘Big Brother” In Rivalry With The Blues

from Craig Custance of ESPN,

Just when you're ready to believe that maybe the Blues have passed the rival Kings, Los Angeles sends a stark reminder that it remains big brother in that rivalry.

The Kings got two goals from Trevor Lewis and a strong performance from Jonathan Quick, sending a message with a 4-1 win that there's room for growth in St. Louis.

After the game, goalie Jaroslav Halak took the blame for the loss after misplaying a puck in the corner that led to a Kings short-handed goal, but even without that misstep the Kings were better team. The Blues can't hang their heads for long though, because the powerhouse Ducks are coming to town and will be ready to pounce on any mistake the Blues make.
