But if they think some phantom "dives" are the reason they lost, they are out to lunch. Their defense and forwards routinely turned over the puck coming out of their own zone. Their two goals were both flukey. The first being a bad bounce and the second being a bad read by the goalie along with a defensive breakdown. I don't know if there is a stat for puck possession but I'd venture to guess it was north of 60/40 in favor of the Kings. I'm pretty sure the Canucks also failed to convert on a power play.
They got two free powerplays on horrible calls (Brown and Gagne), yet they want to pretend that some phantom dives by Kopitar cost them the game?
