WHAT THE KINGS ARE SAYING:

"Let’s start here. I don’t think anybody thinks we’ve played at the level we’ve shown, consistently, since the Olympics. We’ve had spurts and periods, like when we played in Chicago. I don’t think that anybody feels that, since the Olympics, that we’ve been playing with — I don’t know what the right word is — juice, or confidence or whatever. You see a lot of teams that have been struggling. Ironically, Phoenix is a team that didn’t have anybody in the Olympics and they go on a roll. Most of the teams that had people there, they have issues. So the issue now is, I believe in this group but we’ve got to quit messing around. It’s not only the wins and losses. In my situation, you’re looking to see how they’re playing. Are we playing to the best of our ability? That’s the goal and I think if we do, we’re going to be more than fine. Then we look at how we need to be even better to go to the next level."
- Dean Lombardi, Kings GM


"Don't over-evaluate, don't over-analyze here, because you're going to go the wrong way. The first period, the start of the game, is fine. We're in good shape. We're leading the game. Everything is under control. Five-on-three power play, 4-on-3 power play, puck goes off our defenseman's skate. Everything is OK."
- Coach Terry Murray, on the Kings last loss to Dallas on Saturday


"We need urgency from every aspect of this team. Coaches, players, trainers, we all need to get that mindset. Ultimately, it lies on the players, and that's the most important thing, but as a group, a team, here, everyone involved, we all need to have the mentality, that urgency, and we haven't had it. Again, that's unacceptable."
- Dustin Brown

Good stuff SLang!

GO KINGS!

RAZZIE King 03-29-2010 02:13 PM

Let's just hope it isn't another one of those games that do better than NyQuil to put you to sleep... A Kings win would DEFINITELY be good for the opposite effect...

The Black1963 03-29-2010 02:14 PM

We're 0-1 with you doing the GDT's.

Just saying... :p:

SLang 03-29-2010 02:22 PM

Actually, we're 0-2. And if we go 0-3, I'm going to find a different way to spend my spare time.

JDM 03-29-2010 02:26 PM

Uh-oh, everyone keep 911 on speed dial. Halpern is on Kopitar and Smyth's wing tonight. JT and Jumping Shrimp may have aneurysms.

BigKing 03-29-2010 02:30 PM

I don't like our lack of dressed toughness against a team with notable dirty players in Boogard and Clutterbuck.

:)

Interesting move. Hopefully, this will balance out our lines a bit more so TM can comfortably roll all 4 lines.

Telos 03-29-2010 02:33 PM

The lines don't look too horrendous to me.

Smyth-Kopitar-Halpern
Frolov-Stoll-Brown
Modin-Handzus-Williams
Parse-Richardson-Simmonds

With Jones out, and Quick still getting the start. I think we will be fine. I fully expect a win tonight. GO KINGS!

If I remember correctly, the Richardson line did pretty well for a game or two before TM decided to break them up.

two out of three* 03-29-2010 02:55 PM

I hope to God its Bernier in net..

Winger23 03-29-2010 03:21 PM

Halpern on the first line? good god Murray is desperate.

I do like the Richardson line, but I would swap Frolov and Modin around. I think Fro has really good chemistry with Zues.

kingsholygrail 03-29-2010 03:31 PM

We'll see how this goes. Sadly, even if they win, I expect the lines to be jumbled again for tomorrow.

Sydor25 03-29-2010 04:11 PM

No Bernier, No win! :sarcasm:

Looks like Quick in net again...

Aw, well he isn't.

MxH0CKEY 03-29-2010 04:21 PM

GO KINGS GO! Nice GDT BTW! :yo:
I expect a huge bounce back win!

RAZZIE King 03-29-2010 04:27 PM

No Jones = 2 points

kingsholygrail 03-29-2010 04:28 PM

I expect nothing from this team right now. I hope for a complete game.

KingsRule 03-29-2010 04:37 PM

if we dont win this game i seriously doubt well even make the playoffs.
hopefully they get back on track and finish strong!

We've seen this before. It just hasn't happened this late in the season for a long, long time.

Kings: 4
Wild: 1 (GG "Wild" is a totally lame name - and if they're gonna use green, why not use a "real green" like the Northstars did? eor)

GopherState 03-29-2010 04:39 PM

Opposition GDT - We have punch and pie and meatshakes!

RightKinger 03-29-2010 04:44 PM

Jones Is Out!?!! Yes!!!!

Zizou 03-29-2010 04:45 PM

I spoke to two farmers today... they saw an eagle flying with a serpent clutched in its talons.

This is a sign from Apollo.

We will win a great victory today.

GO KINGS!

RAZZIE King 03-29-2010 04:45 PM

Rumor has it Jones hurt his sac...
