Big Game Story: The last of five meetings this season, The Colorado Avalanche won the first three before the Los Angeles Kings took home a 4-1 victory on Feb. 23.
The Kings are fourth in the Western Conference standings but are only one point ahead of the San Jose Sharks and have played one more game. They can't afford a
fourth loss this season to the Avalanche, who are going for a sweep of two games in Southern California after beating the Anaheim Ducks 4-1 on Wednesday.
Kings need to remind the Avalanche which team won the Stanley Cup Championship. GO KINGS GO !!!

After their worst game this year, KINGS return home to face AVALANCHE @ Staples Center.

Can KINGS rebound after that hot mess in Dallas and defeat the AVALANCHE?

"Yeah, Quick was great. Even if you look at the goals they scored in the third, I mean there’s not much you can do on a lot of them. We let our goalie down for sure tonight. He’s one of those guys that’s been there for us over the last three years. Like I said, we’ve got to not let that happen again.” (On not being able to dwell on a loss at this point of the season) … “It’s the hard part about the season and the great thing about the season is we have an opportunity to get back on track right away. That’s what our focus will be tomorrow.” (On if there’s concern of Tuesday’s issues seeping into Thursday’s game) … “I think it’s up to us both individually and collectively to make sure it doesn’t seep into [Thursday]. That’s our job in here, to be ready to go next game. That was probably one of the worst periods we played all year, and like I said, we have an opportunity to rebound and come back, and it’s important for us to do that.”."
Originally Posted by Forward & Alternate Captain ANZE KOPITAR, on Loss :
"We didn’t really play our game in the first two, and then the third was just a terrible period for us. Our line can’t get scored on four times in one period. It definitely wasn’t a good period. No, I think definitely we’re not going to forget about [it]. For sure, we’re going to talk about it and put it behind us after that. With the schedule that we have, we can’t really look back too much. But we can’t just forget about this period. We’ve got to address it. A period like this, it’s unacceptable. Everybody knows within this room, so we’ve got to be a whole lot better on the next game. We just were making too many turnovers. A team like they have, and the skill that they possess, they’re going to capitalize on that, and they did."
Originally Posted by Defenseman ROBYN REGEHR, on Loss :
"Yeah, we didn’t come out and play in the third period the way we wanted to. We talked about in here about having a really good opportunity to get some big points and playing a very desperate team. Just came out and had too many turnovers. My two plays there directly were responsible in two goals against, and you just can’t have that, not in a very tight hockey game like that where you’re just battling for every single chance that you can get."

It’s been fun. Yeah, rehabilitation gets old. It gets old. All that stuff does. But it’s good, too, just being around the guys a little bit more, getting a chance to kind of interact and be a part of the team again.” (On whether he feels like a “pseudo assistant coach”) … “I don’t tell them anything. These guys get enough coaching. They’re all good enough, too. There’s a reason they’re all here playing. Guys don’t need it from anybody else who’s not around the team, so I just be there for a pat on the ass more than anything else.” (On his timetable) … “Try to get out here with some practices with these guys and see how it feels to get bumped around and maybe to give a hit. I think that’s when your real conditioning comes into play, you know, if you can get physical in the corners still…That’s probably my next step, is just getting in some real practices.” (On when he expects that to happen) … “Hopefully tomorrow for pre-game skate, maybe get out there with the guys a little bit. It’s just tough right now because there’s not a lot of spots in between games to get some good practices in, but I’m sure the coaches will figure out something.” (On whether he has noticed any progress from when he first started skating) … “Yeah. Everything loosens up a little bit more. It’s just like coming off any injury. There’s always stiffness. The more stuff you do, the more you get ramped up, it gets a little stiffer. It gets a little heavier, but it’s feeling good right now.”."

They had a rough night, and whether it was schedule, travel, fatigue, you know what? We're past that in a hurry. Sure there's red flags, and you do keep pushing forward," Sutter told the Kings' official website. "I mean, when isn't there a red flag, and when don't you push forward? Every game there's a red flag for every team. So whether it's individually or team-wise, it's all different, and they're not all the same. That's part of it. But you know what? You don't have to re-teach," he said. "These guys, there's a reason they're the defending Stanley Cup champions, right? Because when they have a rough game, they're able to handle it properly."

NOTE : Regarding LARGE SIZE IMAGES / YELLOW RE-SIZE IMAGE BARS ABOVE PICS, let me offer up one nice little suggestion ...
This will get rid of those pesky yellow resize bars over the top of some larger pictures ... as they annoy the hell out of me and maybe they do you also ?
- Go into/click on your "USER CP" {control Panel} up top left in the red bars
- on the left under 'Settings & Options' click on "Edit Options"
- scroll down to 'Thread Display Options', and then 'Please Select the Resize Mode'
- click on the 'Drop Down List Box' over on the Right of 'Please Select the Resize Mode'
- select it to "KEEP ORIGINAL SIZE"
- SAVE your selections !
There ... now don't that look MUCH BETTER
