Wow Tortorella actually answered most of the press' questions tonight
Full credit to him on this one...although I imagine the reason he did answer questions is that someone (ie. upper management) got in his ear and told him he better do so. Regardless, it's a change and that's good.
Gotta say, this was a great game...until OT. Some brutal calls (and non-calls) by the officials that ruined an otherwise good game. The questionable hit by Brown is the obvious one, but there's also the offside that wasn't called on Doughty, and the delay of game that was missed on Voynov.
Still, congrats to the Kings. Makes it all the more difficult to grab Penner in the offseason though.
I was glued to a game for the first time in about 2 weeks. What a great matchup of personalities and skills.
Even the goalies. I learned to hate Mike Smith in this playoffs, with his overhandling the puck and calling out his teammates after goals. Meanwhile Jonathan Quick is the most unoffensive goalie this side of Ward.
I still can't find myself liking either Richards or Carter, unfortunately. Other than those two, Brown on occasion, and Doughty's random rage outbursts, I like everyone else on the team. That's something I can't say for many other teams...there's always a few players I can't stand.
