The Kings ran out of gas in the third. It was pretty obvious. It probably started about halfway through the second, actually. They just couldn't track down pucks in the offensive zone like they did in the first period. That's one negative of having so few players playing during the lockout. The whole second line didn't play, and it shows.
The powerplay is not as bad as you guys are making it out to be. The results aren't there, but they are generating a lot of chances. They're trying to work the backdoor play, but it just isn't connecting yet.
Penner was terrible. Two bad penalties and one bad turnover. Carter was terrible. He might be in shape, but his head isn't in the game. His passes are to no one. His shots aren't anywhere near the net. Just ugly. Richards was terrible. I think he's in awful shape. He looks gassed after about 15 seconds. His hands are rock solid right now, and not in a good way.
The defense played well as a unit.
