It truly is sad, but the tires fell off. This team needs Kopitar and another year before even thinking about winning a playoff series. We'll need Schenn and another winger to kill Penner.
I do not see how we can come back and win this series now. Even if we go up by a few goals in Game 4, the Sharks will now know they can come back and beat us. They took home advantage away. They took momentum. They took everything.
Pretty sure it was cross checking. Kind of annoyed that the phantom call on Penner and the no call on Thornton decided the game but, whatever. I'm sure the refs missed a few the other way.
Murray needs to be fired at least. And by that I mean that being banished from the city of LA might by an idea. Who the hell doesn't call a timeout in a period with 5 goals against?
And come on, I could coach a team that would beat Murray's D. See the OT winner this game, and in game 1 and a scoring chance every 3 minutes. The fourth player in by SJ is so predictable that it's embarrassing Murray hasn't caught on.
Either way, Kings continue to be an amazing group of talent held back by horrible coaching.
