Once again our PP costs us points. And please spare the BS about it being hard to change the system. The PP is god awful yet they stubbornly refuse to change the system. They continue the low to high crap, the continue to send Glass Jarret out there, they continue to have Williams and Johnson on the bench.

And to think people used to complain about Van Boxmeer. Kompon makes Van Boxmeer look like Toe Blake.
Johnson hasn't been great on power play either.

When the **** is Lombardi going to wake up? Does he need further proof that the goofs he has behind the

bench aren't showing these guys a decent system to score PP goals?

Pure bias.

Agreed. They'll just chalk it up to how close the West is.

Haters gonna hate. It's not like this team was setting the NHL on fire with Quick in net lately either.

To put it simply, the players in front of the goalie, need to protect that crease. There's been a few times now where the forwards make contact with the goalie and the other team gets the goal. It's almost like we've gone soft. Can't be doing that.

Probably not. The Kings will lose out on the playoffs against Anaheim to close the season. Dean will say he loved how they competed and they are close to putting it together.

Murray will get another season.

Yep.

This might sound weird, and is unlikely but I would almost prefer 0-0-2 over 1-1-0(if that win is a SO win).

I'm embarrassed by how kings fans treat Bernier. If Quick were in the net, the votes of no confidence would be excuses. You can't fault Bernier on any of the goals. Don't show your lack of knowledge by trying to. You're just embarrassing yourself.

you win some, you lose some. I get that you guys are frustrated but as fans are we not supposed to support our team? Its not like those guys aren't trying. If anyone is to blame its kompon. He needs to change things up. Run something different on the power play. But as fans you have to support the team no matter what. At least we got a point right? Optimism.

Isn't he third in the NHL with PP assists? Hard to get them when he's stuck with the second unit right now. Martinez and Johnson should be option #1 right now. Doughty and Stoll aren't getting it done.

It's so frustrating and I can't take another year out of the playoffs.

I completely agree. If only we had a cap.... oh never mind, we have Brown

Not sure it would of made a difference. Put Quick in and give him the same effort the boys gave him tonight and its the same outcome.

Might be the worst effort I've seen all season.

We are two points ahead of 9th, even up or better in terms of games played on EVERYONE who could finish in playoff positions, with a schedule full of teams we have beaten up this season even with this coaching staff. There's a time where I find panicking a common option for me. Not tonight. There are going to be a lot of 3 point games in this stretch up ahead. We are going to lose some of them. Get used to it.

Agree completely. I love Doughty, but Johnson needs some #1 PP time.

Bright spots - Clifford, Williams, and Mitchell. That's about it.

I hope Kopi was taking notes when Ribeiro took that puck to the middle of the ice in OT.

He's already taken the blame himself. He said it's not the coaches but the lack of skill on the PP.

Yet, the most skilled players are not on the #1 unit. that is a coaching problem that Lombardi ignores.

Penner-Kopitar-Williams
Doughty-Johnson

How ****ing hard is that to use on the PP?

I agree with you Smoney ( with the exception of the embarrassed part). JB is a rookie and has played his butt off for us this season. He is going to be a star in this league for years. He got jobbed tonight and sure, he didn't make that game winning save for us on the break a way but he did make one in the first, what do we really expect from the kid?

JB is fine but he has a ways to go before he reaches his best, blaming the game on him means that you take away the responsibility from everyone else.


Its a team game, if one person blows it for you on one play then another should be able to erase the mistake. Its about balance.

That is why to me were have only one place to look for where to place the blame when things go the way they did tonight.

But I have had this opinion for awhile now.

I think Doughty's the main reason that our power play has been suffering. Stats aren't everything but they're pretty telling: he put up 9G-22A-31P in 82 games on the power play last year and has 4G-8A-12P in 59 games this year, putting him on pace for 17 power play points.

We have two very talented goaltenders either way. Every point is precious in every game, Quick played against the more offensively capable team. It was a vote of confidence to Quick if anything, especially after Bernier's shutout and Quick coming off a blowout against Detroit.
