I agree, I think this was the big problem tonight. A little too awestruck by the twins. You can't let them dance around you. I think they'll be much more prepared on Sunday though.

I've been really disappointed with Richards play in game 3&4. In game 1 he was amazing dishing out hits and scoring. It just seemed like he was a man possessed but now he has been a non factor. Don't if he's injured or not but the Kings really need him to step his game up and play physical.

The 4th line was very good tonight for the Kings. I like how Sutter rolls all 4 lines while AV uses 3 lines.

Well if it's any consolation, the Kings were the very last playoff team out of all 16 to lose a post-season game.

Also, and I know this is basically sacrilege around here, Slava was our worst player tonight, not even close to being anybody else. The kid was terrible, having a really hard time finding the puck and keeping his head in the game.

He is probably one of more most important players, so when he plays like this, it's tough for us to compensate for his mistakes. I believe he'll turn it around.

Sutter said he liked his game and I did too. It just didn't go in for him and a lot of other players.

What no thread about Sedins headshot? I guess Kings fans are different.

3-23 on the pp now in the series, and a whooping 0-11 during the 2 home games this series. This needs to get going again.

The difference was that 3 Kings lines didn't match Vancouvers' desperation. Only one line had that drive. Too bad that same line cost us some goals via Fraser. The Canucks just needed it more than the Kings.

The Canucks did a good job the last couple of days of concealing their plans for D.Sedin (will he or won't he?) as well as keeping secret the level of his ability to perform.

They won't be able to pull such tricks from now on. I'm still quite confident here.

Slava looked nervous everytime he had the puck, and when he had it he didnt make smart plays with it.

What's the point?

No injury + Superstar = no suspension or small fine

The Power play is going to be awful until a couple of things happen.

1. Drew figures out what ever the hell is wrong with his shooting.

2. The Kings acquire a Hard nosed front of the net guy with great hands.

3. A world class Puck handler to QB the thing. A Pavel/Giroux type player...

Until those things happen the PP is going to suck.

Don't give me that Kompon crud, that guy hasn't coached the PP since Sutter got here I bet.

It's been like this all season with Richards. Had a nice start, then got injured and was awful for weeks, he came back strong in a few games but had some terrible ones to end the year. He was the Kings best player on the ice in game 1, and now has struggled again. The inconsistency is maddening.

No question about this, he had no confidence with the puck at all.

And also, why is Carter on the #1 PP unit over Brown?

There's no point. The NHL will sooner give a suspension or fine to Jesus, than to one of the Sedin twins.

Honestly, Vancouver played the part of the team of the desperate veteran team and LA looked like the cocky young team with experience putting teams down tonight. I am not too concerned. I just do not see VAN beating LA 3 straight times from here on out. I said pre-game I thought VAN was too good to be swept. Oh well. I don't the Daniel magically turns Van from a 0-3 team to a 4-0 team. Don't believe that for a second.

I would really like to see Brown on the first unit. He's the only one that stands in front of the net.

Only got to see the highlights...but it really seemed like all 3 Canuck goals were pretty fortunate bounces (I'm sure they were caused by good possession, not at all suggesting they were all luck) and that we were all around the net and just couldn't finish.

Reading the main board, you'd think we'd been dominated since game one and were lucky to even breathe the same air as the Canucks since

On to the next one. Get er done in Vancouver!

By the way, 2 goals in 2 games isn't gonna cut it.

Canucks fane here in peace.

Jonathan Quick is a God. You are absolutely set in goal, tended by a guy who was such an afterthought in the Kings system that they took Bernier in the first round a year later. Every bit the likeable guy and amazing story Tim Thomas was before he lost his mind.

Not gloating one bit over tonight. It wasn't exactly 10-3.

I agree with you. His decision-making with the puck was uncharacteristically bad. He's better than that and I'm sure will perform better next time.

Understand me right. I'm not sure if I understood you.
I meant it as a good thing and agree with you so I was not complaining it wasn't done.

Kings fans are different in a goooood wayyy.

Here's what I think should happen! Get rid of Carter on the 1st unit on the powerplay, he's done nothing! Put Brown in there to crash the net! And freakin Dwight king has been awwwweful! I wouldn't mind moving aaaanyone there! Maybe Richardson. And Drew Doughty yikes! But other then that just finish these guys already!

Well at least Brown and Kopi sound pissed. They are not happy this going back to Canada.

Play with some fire in their eyes next game.

that Frasier penalty really took the wind out of the Kings' sails... they looked deflated out there till Sutter put the 4th line out

Sutter's got some work ahead of him
