When you've lost your wife, when you have to work to keep in touch with your daughter, when your name has been dragged through the mud, when you've been accused of a crime that you insist you did not commit, how difficult can it be to go head-to-head with Marty McSorley and friends? "I know what the Kings are trying to do," says Gilmour about the pounding he is taking from the Kings. "It's no big deal."
McSorley disagrees. "I find that [statement] hard to believe," said McSorley after Game 3. "He's having a tough time out there, but he's a feisty little player. He's not afraid to dish it out, and he accepts what he gets. He's not scared to get involved."
"His confidence level is very high right now," says Rychel. "We can't let him have any room. If you give Dougie Gilmour time to make a play, he's going to make it."
That may not be why they call him Killer, but it ought to be.
