Its all predicated on defence.
Martinez has been very impressive all spring. In my eyes...he is the Kings #2 defenceman behind Doughty.
Brown is having a gigantic playoffs.
But they guy who is quietly doing everything right...Anze Kopitar. Wow! Every game I have watched, Kopitar is continually lockedon the puck, methodically building up a mountian of possesion time and really enabling LA to play in a comfortable tempo despite the fact they've struggled to score in all but a few playoff games.
I don't know what Sutter did to get Penner going, but he has really impressed me...seems to be back checking well and imposing his size/strength. He may not be putting up the points, but I think he has been playing pretty darn good through rounds 1 & 2 so far.
