The defense straight up sucks!! Top to bottom! Frustrating weekend. Bright side is we got 4 out of a potential 6 points, but we gave up 4 points to divisonal opponents

You got that right, I don't think the defense has ever been worse, and that's going back to the 1st season in 01/02. Jones certainly played his butt off this afternoon though.

highlights from today's 3-2 overtime lose to the Portland Pirates. Post game interviews with Morris and Toffoli



Injuries are starting to pile up. Campbell, Kolomatis, Loktionov, and King all out long term now (Czarnik is out as well). Wish we could a estimate on a return date for Lokti and King.

According to the 6 week estimate given on Campbell and Kolomatis that should have them both back around mid december

I gave him the benefit of the doubt but its obvious now; Loktionov is made of glass and I doubt that will ever change.

Top 4 goalies in the AHL right now...

Player - Team - GP - GAA - SVP
1. Barry Brust - ABB - 5 - 0.59 - .978
2. Jeff Zatkoff - WBS - 13 - 1.62 - .938
3. Robin Lehner - BNG - 12 - 1.63 - .950
4. Danny Taylor - ABB - 9 - 1.65 - .937



(all 3 ex-Kings prospect goalies rank top 5 for SVP as well...)

It is kind of funny/sad when you think about the fact - that these guys were all drafted by on NHL organization that managed to develop only ONE homegrown #1 NHL goaltender (Quick) in almost 50 years of existence...
Other then Zatkoff I am not sure Brust and Taylor are NHL material...but who knows...goaltenders=unpredictable.

Brust is really only playing because of his hot streak and is arguably the third best goalie on Abbotsford behind both Taylor and Irving. Always thought Zatkoff could be a solid NHL backup or spot starter and he'd be a lot better than Mannino being Jones backup this year... Bummed the Kings let him go.

Wow all the dudes that were healthy scratched 2 weeks ago are now regulars. Meckler, O'Neil and Johnson are probably going back to the press box now with King and Loki coming back. Where's Andreoff?

I thought they were out for awhile?

Don't know about Andreoff, but I think he's been a healthy scratch

Morris seems to be rotating the bottom 6 guys through.

Andreoff had 3 goals and 4 fights. Thought he was playing pretty well.

I agree, Danny Taylor and Barry Brust are not and never going to be NHL goalies in any capacity beyond a 3rd string emergency guy (I think Zatkoff could be an NHL backup at some point). I just thought it was amusing to see...

Weal deflects LoVerde's shot and gets his first goal as a Monarch. 1-0.

Who else? Tyler Toffoli buries a rebound to make it 2-0 Monarchs. Assists go to Pearson and Vey. That's ten goals on the year for Toffoli.

Great play by King to steal the puck in the offensive zone and hand it over to Cliche, who gets the easy goal. 3-0 Monarchs.

Falcons get one back to end the shutout. 3-1 Monarchs.

Hell of a one-timer by Calvert on the PP to get the Falcons within one. 3-2
Monarchs.

Czarnik tips in Muzzin's shot to make it 4-2 Monarchs.

And just seconds later, the Falcons strike. 4-3 Monarchs.

And we all saw it coming. 4-4.

Craig scores a shorthanded goal thanks to a Jake Muzzin turnover. 5-4 Springfield. Wow...

I think a goalie needs to play a lot more games to give the starter a breather before I would call him a fine backup.

Jordan Weal really making his presence felt tonight. He looks great on a line with Kozun and Legein.

More injury updates: Morris said in the pre game interview that Campbell has been cleared (for contact I assume) and should be back soon!

Co-sign. He does look great!

And freakin Tyler Toffoli! Kid is awesome! Got his 10th goal tonight. I think he leads all rookies in the AHL in goals.

Key to this year is the rookies. So far they've been great! Toffoli has been the man! Pearson has been great! Weal and Andreoff have been solid! Exciting stuff for a Kings fan to be watching
