Please keep the discussion focused on the game, not other posters, the site itself, or anything else that would be considered off-topic, flaming, or any number of other things that are against the site rules.

Thanks...

Jonathan MF'ing Quick baby! No matter how up and down this season has been, man, that guy is friggin awesome and I'm so glad that goaltending is the least of the Kings worries these days. Seems like any other issue that may arise with the team is much easier to fix.

Also, I haven't watched the Blues much but I have Brian Elliott on a Fantasy team of mine and he has been great all year statistically with relatively few bad games. I know Halak has struggled at times and after watching Elliott last night, I wonder why St. Louis has tried to give Halak the benefit of the doubt all season? I know he is getting paid a lot of money but it just seems like Elliott has been more consistent. If any Blues fan is reading this, please answer..

I don't know if it is the game or the roofie I slipped myself, but I am all smiles this morning.

I was only able to listen to the 2nd half of the game on the radio. It sounded like a VERY exciting game with lots of great chances by both teams.

It's amazing that we're in first place after all the adversity we've been through this year. Our remaining schedule is VERY favorable IMO. We have a great chance to take the division title and enter the playoffs hot. Making a playoff run is all about getting hot a the right time.

I must admit also, that I've been wrong about Sutter thus far.

I can't get over Elliott. He was terrible with Ottawa. What a difference.

Well dont you know both teams must play the trap!!! I mean how else can these teams keep others from scoring.

BTW. Did any other Center Ice users on DirecTV lose the Kings feed with 2 minutes to go in overtime? I nearly lost my ****! Thankfully the Blues feed was still coming in so I got see the rest of the game.

No issues for me in Dallas, but I watched the game on Channel 692 (FSW).

I usually watch the games on their actual channel instead of the Center Ice (770+) channels. It makes it easier to record on the DVR without a bunch of dead air.

You know it was a great game when your team loses and you can't help but watch it again the next day. What a game! As a hockey fan I'm really excited for you guys. Your team is easy to like(like my Blues), and you guys play a very similar style to us. Other teams will call it boring, but that's because they can't handle it. You guys are strong checking and relentless. Definitely my backup team for the playoffs. Go Kings! Go Blues!

Martinez had a great game. He was solid all around and was delivering some big hits.

Scuderi and Brown had a rough game.

He's been much more aggressive and confident when playing D lately. I love it.

He may be a bit weaker when the puck is already down low (hence Greene being a good partner), but he's gotten much, much stronger at defending zone entries and rushes by blowing people up!

Don't know why people get angry with Greene.

They way Greene plays he is going to get called. But right now since playoff's are coming; and the games mean soo much refs are putting away the whislte.

So Greene can get away with a little.

Stoll....Well yah.

There was a moment in the 3rd where Greene kept giving a player chops to the back and I was expecting a penalty. I was thinking, "Greene back off.". Luckily the refs let them play and were only going to call something that had to be called, i.e. Williams penalty in O.T.

Elliott's #'s were good in St Louis before he arrived.

Stoll got away with a boarding call IMO.
