I heard that Murray already took the TO in game 4 in advance. First minute, first period, watch for it.

Now, that was obviously a bad joke, but I don't really see how is it that much different from the reasoning in game 3. People do realize that not much could be said during such TO, and that only "the message of TO being taken" is what they were hoping for. Well, Kings finished badly, why not taking TO in first minute of the game 4, just to send a message? Because obviously that's the only way players could "get" the message. There is no way coaching staff could have been able to deliver the message without that timeout.

As for goalie change, I would be more inclined to that action. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have anything AGAINST timeout, but its importance has been overrated. I am not even sure what is the problem: overrating the message of the TO or underrating the ability of coaching staff to give good advice to the team going down.

Let's hope game 4 doesn't need any Kings timeout.
