The Viral Roundup – Hail To The Kings Edition
The Kings need overtime to land the W in Columbus, the Capitals edge the Red Wings and Golden State hits 131 to beat Indiana. Here's the minty fresh world of sports you're waking up to on December 9, 2015.

Did You Hear?

Los Angeles has racked up their fifth win in a row and they did it at Columbus’ expense on Tuesday night. The Kings (a -130 road favourite) clinched a 3-2 OT victory over the Blue Jackets thanks to Alec Martinez’s heroics. Jonathan Quick made 21 saves for the Kings and Jeff Carter potted his eleventh of year in the win. The Kings are currently perched at the top spot of Pacific with a healthy margin of separation in the standings.

Did You See?

SB Nation has been doing a fantastic job of putting a spotlight on the NFL’s assorted highlights and lowlights in 2015 and that extends to their video coverage as well. Check out Matt Ufford and Ryan Nanni summing up the week that was in the National Football League in the funny and informative clip we’ve tucked below. Speaking of football wheelings and dealings, Thursday Night Football looks like a quality offering this week. Arizona are considered a seven-and-a-half point home favourite for their upcoming showdown with Minnesota.

Did You Know?

- The scoreboard in Indianapolis got a healthy workout on Tuesday night. Golden State (a six point road favourite) outgunned upstart Indiana 131-123 to hit 23-0 on the season. Klay Thompson provided 39 points and Steph Curry racked up a double-double in the victory. Paul George scored 33 for the Pacers in a losing cause. Golden State’s 13-0 road record to start the season is a league-first.

- Shootout heroics from sniper Evgeny Kuznestov and goalkeeper Braden Holtby provided Washington with a 3-2 SO win over Detroit. The Red Wings held the Caps to 2-1 until midway through the 3rd when Alex Ovechkin tied things up. Washington currently holds a one point over the Rangers for top spot in the Metro.

- The hockey world will have to wait a little longer to get some new news on the NHL expansion process. Commissioner Gary Bettman shared this week that there is no timetable in place for sorting out a decision on Quebec City and Las Vegas’ applications to join the league.

- ESPN is reporting that Eagles running back DeMarco Murray spoke with franchise owner Jeffrey Lurie about his limited playing time. Murray, who was the NFL’s rushing champ back in 2014 with Dallas, is coming off a week where he totaled 24 yards on eight carries in Philadelphia’s surprise win over New England. Philly are a one point home underdog for their Week 14 tilt with LeSean McCoy and the Buffalo Bills.
