Now it's an even series that comes down to a best of three, just like the St. Louis series. Time to collect themselves and to pull their heads out of their rear ends and show up for 60 minutes at home on Thursday.
Well said.

The Kings big guns only showed up the final 15 minutes or so, Kopitar was absolutely flying, Richards got a goal and was carrying the puck. But they were both no shows through 20.

Just watching the highlights, Carter is coasting into the slot on the Burns goal, one good stride he breaks it up, that is as frustrating as Muzzin's missed net.

My biggest concern for game 5 is stopping Thornton 5 on 5. When we were in LA he started out with Richards and switched to Kopitar, unfortunately in SJ he got the 2nd line caught out there alot against Thornton. I think the best bet is having Kopitar and one of RR or Greene, Thornton is just to much for guys like Richards, Voynov and even Doughty.
