Kings (TM) has to change their tactics, we can't score from the outside. There are not many shots taken from the slots, most of the shooting is done from the blueline with no screen because our players don't get in front in time since they are on the outside by the boards or down below...this tactic doesn't work.

... I dunno, I think there was a conscious decision to go back to playing D and for the forwards to support the defensemen more. The Kings probably should have won this game 2-0, as Potulny's and Simmonds' goals were a little more unlikely than most. Too bad about Loktionov getting hurt -- he had a rough game, got worked in the draws (only won 1 out of 8) and didn't look like he was in sync with his linemates.

Greene was my number 1 star. He played his best game this season, for sure, against his old mates. He was defensively solid, and more than got the job done.

May I ask why you mention "Hemsky is out" so many times? Is he injured often or you just dont like him?

... It's because the Oilers' announcers in the streamed feed mentioned it literally 500 times during the game.

Did you honestly think Lokti played that bad? I thought this was a great 1st game for the kid. Not like a start Parse had but still a good start.

no. well, not really. looked enormously overwhelmed and ended up having to leave the game with what appears to be a dislocated/separated shoulder... he tried the ol' boomerang and learned the hard way that pushing off a 200+ pound NHLer is incredibly more difficult than either a junior player or 170 pound soaking wet AHLer.

Segal looked FAR more comfortable and like an NHLer out there.

from the second period on, Wayne Simmonds played his best hockey in about a month. he and Handzus were really moving out there. Michal had an unfortunate boarding of Hemsky and subsequently had the Oilers, and primarily Souray in his face the rest of the night.

the defense got stronger as the game went on and were very solid in the 3rd... Greene bagged the winner... that was nice to see.

Quick was great when he needed to be.

although you might hear different, Teddy Purcell played very well tonight, and Brad Richardson was terrific.

Dustin Brown still looks like a Plymptoon out there.

Frolov made a helluva play on Gagne in the final seconds and was rewarded with an empty netter.

they STILL can't win a faceoff and their powerplay is equally dreadful.


Patrick O'Sullivan is still the same excitably entertaining but reckless cowboy and hasn't appeared to have learned a damn thing.




Edmonton's broadcast duo was like sitting in a room, smoking weed with Ahlers and Hayward.

Greene and Drewiske were outstanding in the 3rd period especially.

Nice effort and win for the boys.

Bummer for Loktionov.

Is it just me or are the broadcasts for canadian teams just awful? I have never heard such amatuerish homers. Considering hockey is next to religion up there, it amazes me how bad the broadcasts are, be it local or national.

Made me really appreciate how good we have it with Bob & Jim.

... Purcell was alright, he did some good work along the boards and had a couple takeaways. I don't agree that Richardson was all that good, he played fast and loose with the puck, but he had his legs out there for sure.

... No argument about the power play, but the Kings have been solid on the draw for the last four games prior to this one, winning over 50% of them.

Offensively, yeah, but I thought he did a pretty good job defensively with his positioning. There were a few plays where the Oilers tried to do cute little drop passes that he intercepted and skated out of the zone with the puck. Especially with Murray as the coach, that kind of thing is what is going to endear and earn him more time on the ice.

Honestly, I kind of wish the Kings themselves did more of what the Oilers did in terms of going after a guy that hits/injures your star player.

The "Quick" jokes really got old after the eighth or ninth time they tried slipping it in the broadcast.

Butchering Loktionov's name throughout the game was pretty bad. Making jokes about how you haven't a clue how to pronounce it just makes it worse.

No offense to those guys because I'm sure they're trying their best, but Bob Miller often talks about how he makes it a point to either talk to the player directly (i.e. Michalek of Phoenix) to get the right pronunciation or speak with the broadcasting guys of the other team so that he gets it right on the air.

That kind of extra effort really shows.

... Also, I want to point out that Jack Johnson had a very good game. Almost 27 minutes out there, led the Kings in ice time in one of their best defensive performances of the season, a couple shots on goal, a couple hits, a couple blocked shots, and an assist. Nice job, #3.

Terrible win, no passion, no intensity, no nothing besides Simmonds & OD. I know I'm the minority here but seriously, I'm tired of complaining about the physical presence of this team. . .

Whatever, happy thanksgiving everyone. Be safe.
