After calming down and watching the replays of the Oilers goals, the breakdowns that led to the goals could have been avoided completely.

Stoll's head is in the clouds after the year he's had: winning the Cup, hooking up with the Great One's daughter, and now being with Erin Andrews... it appears he's forgotten how to do the one thing he's good at, winning faceoffs. His stupid decision to try to move the puck forward on the late draw allowed Edmonton to tie the game.

Then in OT, you have a guy slacking off to get to the bench and a player with a head of cement jumping onto the ice way too early, and it results in a well deserved penalty.

Avoidable errors cost them for the second consecutive game. Once again, they're playing like its pre-season hockey. If players are to be held accountable, maybe the ice time for Richards and Stoll should be decreased. Especially if they're going to cost the team points.

Thus far, of a possible 6 points, the Kings have 1 point. It's still early, but if they keep this up, they're going to be fighting another uphill battle all season long just to stay in the playoffs.

Meanwhile, the Sharks are playing unbelievably well, as are the Ducks. The Stars are looking pretty good as well and are now going to get Benn back. The Kings better wake the **** up.
