Not a single player was a minus tonight, 911 line had 3 points each, 12 different Kings had a point tonight, only three players were below a +1 tonight and that was the forwards for the fourth line (all a 0). Terrific play. Stoll was 6 out of 16 in the face-off circle though.
"I think part of his game is he’s over aggressive at times, which I like. We’ll tame that. I’d rather tame a lion than paint stripes on the kitty cat." - Dean Lombardi discussing Brayden McNabb
The 911 line is looking fantastic so far. Every one of those guys are earning their paychecks so far. Even Smyth! I 'd like to hear some Oilers fans comment on it after how much crap we received about the "massively overpayed, washed up" guy we traded for...
smyth has been outstanding. the kings haven't had a guy with that combination of drive-the-net, intensity, and scoring ability since deadmarsh. i'll miss quincey, but holy cow that trade looks good so far.
Was it just me or did Doughty have another so-so game. I mean he got a point but he hasn't been himself.
His timing just seems off to me. Even on a lot of his mishaps, he's making the right play, just a second too late or soon.
He may be pressing things a bit trying too hard to impress the Team Canada brass. Or he could be trying to hard too live up to the ridiculous expectations created by his unexpected rookie year. Either way, I'm pretty confident he'll be fine.
