*** ugly.

Bright spots - The 4th line played really good.

Crap - Everything else. The first line was ineffective. They didn't crash the net until the 3rd period.

Give some credit to the Canucks defense, they played a nearly perfect game. Luongo gave some fat rebounds, but there were always 2 or 3 guys there protecting it. They got their sticks in the lanes and knocked down or deflected an awful lot of passes tonight. Unlike our defense, who let players coast across the middle for deflections without even putting a body on them.

At least the Kings never gave up, I'll give them that. It looked like the effort was there all game, even if they didn't play well. Much better than that giving-up crap they pulled last year, at least it makes the losses easier to swallow.

I predict Ersberg in goal next game. Not so much because Labarbara played particularly poorly, but because the defense needs a wake-up call. They looked crappy to a man tonight.
