Whoever makes up the top 6 on this team, they have a combined 7 goals at ES, through 9 games. The top 2 lines are averaging 1 ES goal between the 6 players, and 2 of them(or 3 if you count Penner) have 0 ES goals. The 3rd line has 1 goal, from Stoll, and that was when Gagne was on the ice with him. The 4th line hasn't scored in a long time.
Couple that with the Kings still overall poor PP, and we're right back to the pre-playoff Kings again.
4 goals against Phoenix and Columbus, with LaBarbera and Mason in net. 4 goals against Anaheim, in a game where the Kings couldn't stop Anaheim from scoring.
Then it's 2 against Chicago, and Vancouver(not counting the SO goal), 1 against Colorado, Edmonton, and Nashville, and 0 last night.
As long as I know this is the regular season version of the Kings we're watching, then at least the expectation can be tempered somewhat. Just a struggle for a low seed in the playoff race, because they can't score. If that's what they are, then that's what they are.
