dear los angeles royalty:
i just wanted to drop you a little note to say thank you for not allowing those pesky canucks to perform their patented third period magic last night. getting the puck past bobby lu is a challenge at the best of times, and doing it thrice in sixty minutes shows you're worth all those jewelled crowns and sceptres you probably have kicking around somewhere... i mean, even though you probably won't make the playoffs THIS year, your loyal subjects (read: rachel hunter) can look forward to certain success in the next years; it's exciting to watch all the princes step it up (kopitar, doughty, moller, quick). heck, even denis gauthier was able to regally keep his elbows at his sides long enough to notch a goal !!
much appreciated, my lords --honestly...
(but on april sixth we're still gonna try to burn down your palace).
