Good game. I wish we would have won it in regulation.

That 3rd goal for the Kings was seriously such ********. Annoyed that this wasn't a regulation win.
Granted, we wouldn't have seen the things of beauty of Christ and Zuc...

People only notice what Lundqvist does wrong, never what he does right. Let's not forget that he just stopped Anze Kopitar to win the shootout and in the 1st period he absolutely stole a goal that the Kings had all but put in. That made the difference.
Good: Calis back <3
Bad: Gilroy,DZ,bad penalties, ****** powerplay scheme, same **** different day
Redden: Pp scheme, clearly they didn't work on it for the past 3 days still looks futile, and MDZ's confidence
Only negative here with winning it in the shootout is shootout wins don't count towards the win tiebreaker. Other then that, two points is two points. Cally was easily the player of the game. Guy was all over the place tonight, especially on that one penalty kill where he lost his stick.
I had no issue with the Torts timeout. We've had problems all season long with pur play dropping off right after we score. Saw it tonight, too. Call the TO and let the guys try to regroup and focus for the last three. Obviously it didn't work, but who is to say that things would have ended differently had he not called the timeout? Is anyone really going to tell me they were at all confident in our 3-2 lead?
I hate Torts, but I don't fault him for that. At some point, the players need to stop playing like little *****es.
Callahan is the obvious choice but Sauer was a man among boys tonight. Reminds me a lot...I mean a lot of a bigger bodied Kevin Lowe. Always in the right place, right time -- super smooth and calm with the puck.
Staal was a monster tonight. I dont care about the -2.
I was stuck with them too but didnt think they were that bad. They boring but didnt think they were homers.
I think the color commentator is really bad. A homer, and he also has this annoying inflection in his voice when finishing sentences. You know how people kind of make a definitive, higher-toned voice when they're about to cut to commercials? That guy does it after everything he says. I noticed it months ago and now it's all I hear.
