At the end of that 4 minute power play that the Kings squadered in the first period, I thought Darryl Sutter was sending a message to the players by sending out the 4th line on the PP. I thought that to that point, the Kings were playing pretty listless and the Blackhawks were outskating them. He stated in his post game interview that he did that because it was a long powerplay and he wasn't going to use just 2 group of forwards. He continued to roll the 4th line out even on defensive zone draws the rest of the game. At any rate, after that point in the first period, the Kings really started to play motivated and hustle. If it was unintentional, whatever he did/said at that point, the guys responded. That was awesome to see because after about the first 10 mins of the game I expect the Kings to bend over and get pounded.
