Besides, I thought that top line was quite ok, they could have easily scored at least one more goal in first period, not to mentioned that the amount of time they kept the puck in offensive zone kept the danger away from their own goalie. If you watch the first period again, you should notice that top line played exactly like we want them to play, Kopitar included.
Matched up against Mike Weaver most of the night they should have scored 2 or 3 goals. No maybe's about it. They just didn't get the job done.

Daryl Evans explained it quite well during the first intermission saying the Kings dominated the play territorially, but they did nothing with it. It does no good to dominate by keeping the puck in the other team's zone if you aren't going to get shots off from the prime scoring areas.
