He is so much more of a playmaker than glass Jarett
glass jarret has been much better lately, though. he netted one today, and i think there were a couple of others recently too.

of course, i could be wrong and it could just be that we're seeing less of it happen because doughty and johnson have been paired on the power play...

I don't know what 5-on-3 he was watching, it couldn't have been the ones I saw. The Kings should just start declining two-man advantages. They provide more opportunity for all the things that they do badly on power-plays: standing still, too much passing, trying to set up perfect shots, no presence in front of the net. Creating semi-broken plays is a huge part of offense. You need to be able to attack the net from different directions and then recover the puck, either by picking up rebounds or simply beating the other team to the puck when it's loose. There was NONE of that on those two-man chances. They're much too cautious.

... Hahahahaha, this post.

Quick deserved the primary assist on the last Colorado goal - it was probably the best tape-to-tape pass of the entire game.

I missed that goal, and when I came back to the TV all I saw was a replay of the puck going off Stoll into the net. I thought he had inadvertently knocked it in. I didn't realize it was another JQ puck handling faux pas that led to it.

Hated the sloppy play at the end. They better not have any lapses like that on Monday or Detroit will take advantage in a big way.

I look at it this way: Better to get this game out of the way, then for it to crop up in the SCF game 7.

I recall game 7 against Toronto for the WCF crown in 1993. Gretzky had just scored an insurance goal and we were up by two late in the 3rd period. Then Taylor missed a wide open net for the clincher, and Toronto scored with about a minute to go in the game.

There I am, just staring at the TV, thinking about the 26 previous failed seasons. It was a crazy minute, but we ran out the clock and I am in an Alburqueque hotel room screaming "we are going to the finals!"

My wife had to shush me.

Maybe this has been covered already, but what the hell kind of 5 on 3 strategy is that by the Kings? 3 guys on the blueline and only two down low?? It's asinine.

They finally changed it up when Brown moved down low, but clearly it's a set strategy. And an awful one at that. Who's their PP coach?

Otherwise a mostly good game. This young team still doesn't quite know how to close out games, but overall good performance.
