Why is everyone patting each other on the back after another shutout win with only 2 goals scored? Yes, the team played well and SJ wasn't on top of their game, but only 2 goals were scored by the Kings. This actually lowered their GF/G.
Quick was the reason it didn't go to OT or a SO. A gift goal for Moreau and a goal between Gagne and Richards, players who have a strong history of playing well together getting their chance in game 24.
Let me know when the Kings don't rely on their goalie to win with only 2 goals scored, even though they scored 3 goals.
It was a huge win for the team, but nothing has been "fixed" by the line changes. The Kings were much more dangerous 4-on-4 than they were 5-on-5. Kings need to take more coincidental penalties.
Kings are now 1-14 on the PP and the PK has killed 18 straight. Talk about a reversal of October.
Richards has scored at least one goal in eight of his last 10 games, and has a total of 10 goals in those 10 games. The Kings have an
11-2-2 record when Richards records at least one point
. Anyone still want Schenn and Simmonds back?
and Jack Johnson each recorded a team-high four shots on goal. He must have given Murray a woody.
Do the Kings really win last night without Quick? Niemi lost the game for SJ and Quick won it for LA. I wouldn't call the offensive woes of the Kings fixed.
As for the third goal, I agree with Murray. If it was called a goal on the ice and the video was inconclusive, how do you overturn the call on the ice?
MURRAY: “That call should have, in my opinion, gone the other way. It’s called a goal, on the ice, by the official, and the explanation then, to me, is that it was inconclusive on the video replay judge, as to whether it was kicked or a stick, so there’s no goal. But, actually, it is a goal by that explanation, because it has to be very conclusive that it is kicked. So, it should have been a goal.”
At least Greene wasn't as satisfied as the fans were:
(on the second-period penalty kills…)
GREENE: “That was huge. You never want to give up a goal going into the third. We were good. I think we got some help off the goalpost, and Quickie was outstanding. He was unbelievable tonight. He definitely gave us more than a chance to win and definitely backstopped us.’’
(on the team’s attitude tonight…)
GREENE: “I think guys were playing hard. I think we could have a better third (period) though.
We have to be better in the third. We can’t just get into a defensive shell.
We have to keep doing what we’ve been doing in the first two periods, and stick with that.’’
