They have several stars (Lazar was a treat to watch). There have been so many positives this season. I think if they had Reiner and Cheek, the result would have been a little different - maybe not with us winning but it would have been closer.
The Portland Cheaterhawks were, flat out, a better team and are worthy champions. I hate them, however, and would love for Halifax to hammer them into submission.
Yesterday Lazar gave possibly the only reason to even faintly cheer the effort. I can't imagine how many walk ups that decided to go to the game yesterday gave second thoughts.
Watching this lacklustre effort and a club that couldn't complete a pass was painful. What forward for the Kings had a good game yesterday?
Getting scored on shorthanded twice in such a game is a gongshow.
I don't think anybody in Edmonton expected this Kings team to win the series and against good clubs they seem to have a lot of problems. I thought the Kings were ordinary against Calgary too. I guess to see them play well you have to watch them dominate lesser teams.
