Thats about half of the 15 game stretch of scoring 0 or 1 goals. Granted the Kings were able to "escape" with some points in a few of these games, but fans have a right to question a coach when he pulls 2 offensive minded players in lokti and now Martinez off the ice.

St. Louis scored 9 on the ducks. I'm willing to bet we score 2 or less against the ducks unless some weird bounces happen. But everyone will be happy cause we'll win the game 1-0 or 2-1 so it will go unoticed yet again.
Last I checked, a one goal win counts as much as a six goal win. The Kings are a defense-first hockey team. Expecting anything else is just going to leave you disappointed.

Besides, those Blues who put up nine on the Ducks, they're five points back of us right now. If playing a defensive game gets results, why argue?
