Not going to bother dissecting the shootout, it's not like the Kings have been blowing a bunch of extra points. The game should have never gotten to that stage, and that is the fault of the fourth line tonight.

Nolan with his idiotic and unnecessary goaltender interference penalty put the team down and that eventually led to the game tying goal. Fraser's errant drop pass at the Wild blueline led to Minnesota's opening goal. The fourth line can't afford to cost this team games, and they did tonight.

Quick was the least of my concerns tonight. Hopefully tomorrow we see Penner, maybe even Richardson as well in place of Nolan and Fraser. This game also made it apparent that the Kings could still use a 2nd line LW and a big bodied defenseman. Ellerby just does not use his gifted size and reach all that much and he had some turnovers and weak clearing attempts today.
