Vancouver Canucks defeat LA Kings 4-0. Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo withstood the onslaught of 28 shots on goal and let none pass including a penalty shot by Alexander Frolov. The Kings meanwhile did no favors for their goalie Jason LaBarbera by being out of position on defense giving the Canucks easy shots. It was the case of the Kings just not being able to capitalize on their opportunities. Luongo got his 40th career shutout becoming just the 28th goalie to do so. This was Vancouver's first shutout of the Kings in Los Angeles since they joined the league in 1970.

Notable Notes

  • As noted earlier, Jeff Kent donated $15,000 to the Yes on Proposition 8 campaign. Not that it should come as a surprise since he's a Mormon-extraordinaire. And we all know now that the Mormon cult has contributed to more than $17 million of the $22 million for the Yes on Prop 8 folks. Am I the only one to find humor in the fact that a cult who allowed for polygamy is trying to make judgments on fags like me who want to be assimilationists and get married? Anyhow if Prop 8 passes, I'll be the first in line getting signatures for a ballot measure to abolish marriage.
