The Los Angeles Kings had been cruising, going 3-0 in the first three games after the trades of Tony Lagerstrom and Calle Jarnkork. Since that time, the wheels have fallen off the bus. The Kings lost 5 in a row, and now have lost 6 of their last 7, with a tough Calgary team on tap. However, there is hope on the way. The return of the Holy Ghost, also known in some parts as The Resurrection, Shayne Gostisbehere's return from missing 15 games with a facial injury. Gostisbehere suffered the injury when he blocked a shot, face first during a game. When asked about the injury, Gostisbehere said, "I saw the puck, then I really saw the puck, then I saw nothing at all." Gostisbehere was knocked unconscious after he blocked a 95 mph slap shot. After receiving 35 stitches to the face, it is unlikely Gostisbehere will continue his modeling career in the offseason. Instead, he recently signed a contract to promote future "Joker" movies. The Kings hope that Gostishbehere's on-ice play returns the Kings to playoff relevance, as they only currently sit 5 points out of a playoff spot.
