For one day, Ottawa is the city of brotherly love

Terryblog Greetings from Ottawa, where it’s chilly and rainy but so far, no snow.

It’s not the weather that will keep Rhoda Murray, two days short of her 91st birthday, from attending Monday’s game between the Kings and the Ottawa Senators. It’s that two of her 10 children will be involved in the game -- Kings Coach Terry Murray and Senators General Manager Bryan Murray -- and she doesn’t want to root for one at the expense of the other.

"She has favorites. There’s 10 of them," Terry Murray said after the Kings’ morning skate at Scotiabank Place in suburban Kanata.

"Everybody’s a favorite. I think that’s why she doesn’t come to the games anymore.  It gets to be too hard when she’s sitting in the stands watching. But she’ll be watching the game on TV."

Many other members of the Murray clan will make the trip from the town of Shawville, on the other side of the Quebec border, to be at the game, and a local reporter asked Terry Murray which brother their relatives and friends will back.

“It’s one of those games where I think you’re looking for a tie,” Terry Murray said. “I’m looking for a win.”

How does he plan to get it? We’ll have more from him and from the teams’ skates in a little while at www.latimes.com/sports.
