No wonder the Kings obliterated the competition in the playoffs. There aren’t many people that can stand in the way of the combined powers of Darth Vader and Spider-Man.

Remember what Dustin Penner said about the Kings arrival at Los Angeles International Airport after they advanced to the Stanley Cup finals?

“It was like driving down a hallway lined with human flesh. You couldn’t see anything except people screaming and Kings jerseys.”

Something tells me that could also describe the feeling of navigating through the parade crowd.
