Backstrom just won a board battle against two flyers and #28 just learned he has a little ways to go to be considered an elite two way center. Love that kids offense but you cant just let the guy bullrush to the front like that.
Wow I think that may have been Schenn with the giveaway on the second Caps goal. Kings fans weren't kidding when they said he can be atrocious in his own end. Not all on him though the whole team has looked bad.
First period of his first game...I think we can give him a break.
We knew it would be a good game...just need to bounce back.
What's going on Kings East, how has Schenn looked? In his 9 game stint with the Kings last year he looked like he had some good offensive instincts but needed improvement on his play away from the puck.
Hopefully you guys enjoy Schenn, now and in the future. We in LA are already enjoying Richards
They look dead out there, love the turn overs in our zone because that's really helping our situation. I'd imagine they come out a little more lively and play smarter hockey in the 2nd or at least I hope so.
