It was a good game. I don't really feel that bad about it.

Kings played a phenomenal game. Nabakov was great. Multiple chances to end it in the s/o but it didn't happen. Take the point and go.

Side note: absolute best game of the year by the 4th line.

I think we are all just too emotional after a loss and we can't think rationally until tomorrow. Take it easy guys, it was a good match and in the end Sharks were a bit luckier. It happens.
No I'm talking specifically about the SO. No, I'm not talking about shooter selection, but that we had two chances to ice the game and couldn't do it. That's why we should have won the game IMO.

The regulation was pretty damn even.

I thought it was a great, fairly even, game. I think the third period felt like a play off game.

I think that none of our shooters (save Zeus of all people) had a look in their eyes like they knew they could score.

Happy with the point, and on to getting two tomorrow.

My first game in person for the year, tomorrow night. Stoked!

I couldn't care less that Frolov didn't shoot.. what I care a lot about is the guys that DID shoot that didn't even get a shot off. The Kings could have had a 2nd point tonight, it shouldn't have even gone 6 rounds!

That said, Quick is our #1. He was great tonight, and it's great to get a point. If there's going to be a 3 point game between two division teams - let the Kings always be one of them.

The sharks gave out 14 points in their barn to visiting teams all last season. To get 1 point is better than most teams got, and certainly better than what the Kings are used to getting there.

It needs to be mentioned that this was the first type of game like this the Kings have played, and I don't mean the SO.

Have they gone into a third period tied yet? I don't think so.

They showed strong composure to not break down when the Sharks turned on the pressure.

The next step is learning to take it to them in the third as well, as they played overly safe hockey throughout the third, even if it was good overly safe hockey.

Maybe he read my post a few games ago calling him a goal scorer?

If we would have taken a point from the Sharks at the tank last year, everyone would have been stoked. It's a nice testament to how far the team has come that everyone is upset that we didn't take two.

THAT'S what a battle for first place in the division looks like, and I have no doubts we'll be seeing a lot more of those this season.

Anze Kopitar for example missed the net. Jack Johnson got poke-checked away, Simmonds missed the net. We had plenty of chances to win this one. Then again San Jose has the same amount of chances..
BTW Quick with that phenomenal save n the shoot-out! Like seeing that.

I would have put Frolov before some of the other guys, but top 3 seemed ok to me. I will repeat once again, that Frolov is not a very special SO scorer. So if I was the coach, Fro would be there as number 4 or at LEAST number 5. But I will say one more time, that TM did not lose the game and stop being silly my friends.

Exactly that is my point. Who knows? He could have missed badly as well. This should-have and hindsight 20-20 is something that only fans can operate with.

I agree with you about Stoll though, Frolov would ALWAYS be before him on my list. Stoll can shoot some crazy goals and that's it. It is effective, but on SO, because goalie knows very well what he is going to do.

he's solid both ways, and every goal scorer runs through rough patches where they can't buy breakaway goals.

Just seemed like a weird shootout to me, don't know what it was. Zues scored but the other guys either missed the net or just came straight in an shot it into Nabokovs pads. Oh well we get a point.

Kings have won different types of games this season.

Want a high scoring game? You got it.

Want a low scoring one? No problem.

Comebacks? Got that too.

Win in overtime? Come on, give me a challenge!

Heart wrenching leads given up but still hanging on to win? Piece of cake.

Low scoring 1-1 affairs that end up in a shootout only to win it in the sixth round? Ahhhh…maybe next time.

Like I said in the GDT, the Top 2 lines should not be touched.

When Williams returns slot him onto the Stoll line.

The Top 2 lines are really clicking out there. And Williams will add some scoring punch to the Stoll line.

Smyth-Kopitar-Simmonds
Frolov-Handzus-Brown
Purcell-Stoll-Williams
Ivanans-Richardson-Parse (obv he will never bench Ivanans)

I really like those lines.

Every time you post I can't help but say in my head: "Are you for reals?"

It always gets me.

Well, I guess we will have to agree to disagree. All these situations are part of SO. When you see someone having 30% SO success, you have also all the misfortunes there. Sharks also had at least one such attempt so I guess that at BEST we can talk about 35% x 50% = 17.5% higher chance of winning the second point. And 20% is just hard for me to call "should have", for me "should have" is 65% and above.

It is easier to say that goalie should have made a particular save than vice versa, guys. Let's not forget that chance of scoring is generally lower. Goalies in SO are supposed to be making saves more than skaters are supposed to score.
