Bad game by Quick, luckily Kopitar decided to dominate as usual today. Glad we got the 2 points, very unhappy Dallas walked away with 1... Put it behind us and let's toughen up for the Yotes, should be a crazy game, much more difficult than the Stars.

I don't see many giddy people around here that the Stars walked away with a point all from long range perimeter shots. Kopitar is about the only thing to really be giddy about that game.
"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
It's something fundamentally wrong with Quick's game, which is the scary thing. He's extremely strong down low, because he's flexible and can really stretch out his body. But he tends to do that at every shot, which opens up his top corners really, really big.
I thought our defense played above average if not very solidly. Goaltending will truly haunt this team all season, which sucks.
I'm not ready to jump on the call up Bernier bandwagon, regardless of his stats in the AHL. But Quick needs to get it together, and fast. Because the Kings are only going to get lucky like this so many times before Quick solely loses us a game, and it's a downward spiral from there.
