In regards to Kopitar, did you not see Foxy's equation during the "Keys to the Game" segment?
Kopitar - Shots = Goals.
He hasn't become invisible, he's just following the tried and true method of earning goals by not shooting.
I don't think he is hurt, he's just being Anze. As we saw last year, Anze can sort of vanish from the goal scoring column for awhile. It also doesn't help that he's playing with an inept RW'er at the moment.
Did anyone else see Terry's reaction when Williams won it in the SO?
He actually had big smile on his face, and was clapping his hands. It was very un-TM like.
As the shootout went longer and longer the team seemed to be having more fun overall. That's a good sign. I don't think anyone really likes the shootout as a decider for games, but it looks like the team was having fun with it at least.
It was weird seeing Nessi on the bench especially when he was having a good game. Seeing TM smile made me laugh out loud. Must have been a glitch in his programming. I thought that Jack had a good game and that Greene made a couple of solid instinctive plays. I liked the fact that we battled hard anyways.
It doesn't look like we have turned things back around but we do look a ton better and if we stay patient and keep playing hard we might get back that world beating look that we had during our winning streaks.
from what i saw the Flames players were running at him after every pass he made. way after letting the puck go and the refs weren't going to give him any calls. Maybe Murray was trying to protect him as the game got more physical.
It was a good shift Dr. Killjoy. Dude pinned the entire Flames line up in their zone while his teammates were changing. You don't see that very often for a reason.
Man, some people can see the negative in anything.
Heh..when all you're looking for is the negatives, that's exactly what you'll find.
Brownie was really moving his legs, I've always thought he's at his best when he does that. That goes for a player like Wayne Simmonds too. Gotta keep them legs moving.
In Kopitar's case, there's nothing wrong with his overall play except for one thing, he's just not going hard into the scoring areas. It's like he's waiting for it to happen, watching the puck too much, he's gotta go in there and force the issue.
