The refs felt the Blues had enough time to make a change and would not let Petro off. You could tell while Petro was skating back on the shorthanded rush that he wasn't right. But my favorite player really screwed the pooch on that goal....David Backes gave a half-hearted effort to get back in the play. We better come out playing 60 minutes tonight or else we will be down 2-0.
I hope he can play. The Kings are missing Simon Gagne, who has scored 37 playoff goals in the last 6 years. Gagne would be a huge upgrade on our second line and our PP. Oh well. Last year, we were without Kopitar and Williams. Sure, missing key players to injuries make things tougher.
