Tippett needs to just man up and admit his team is being outplayed. The refs had nothing to do with the kings dominating the last two periods. I mean, the coyotes had 8 shots over the last 40 minutes for christssakes.
Phoenix fans are now blaming the refs for all three losses. Claiming the NHL wants the kings in the finals.
Surprisingly, no mention from their fans about the two missed high sticking penalties on Phoenix.
The NHL refs have been bad in every series and all season. It's not a grand conspiracy.
To be fair here as a Coyotes Fan I never made such a claim. In fact, I have been one of the more objective posters from the Coyotes Board despite the heat I get there for being as such. See #56 in this thread.
I'm totally numb. This is so f'ing awesome. 5 more wins!
Doughty, I'm not sure when he started eating his wheaties instead of donuts, but the guy is playing awesome. His shots at the blue line are now getting through, and that calm move on the PP keeping the puck in was amazing.
All the guys were great tonight, stoll lewis and King were unreal.
The only downer is, I miss Fraser. Does anyone know the nature of him missing 2 huge games like this? I know it's family related, I just hope all is well for him. The 4th line is so much better (sorry cliffy) with him centering and Richardson on the Wing.
Just got back from the game. Let me tell you guys, I have been to all but one of the playoff games at Staples the past three years, and never, ever has the crowd noise literally pushed my ears to the pain threshold like it did tonight. First was the Doughty takedown on Doan, but what really did it was that epic psycho-beastly shift by Voynov at the end. That combined with the fact that the Kings were about to win....well, it just pushed it over the edge.
It was spectacular. I absolutely cannot wait until Sunday.
