Good win. I really like what I'm seeing from Muzzin. He's making smart plays. Richards standing up for Brown was good to see. He knows his play isn't up to speed yet, and he got Doan to sit for the end of the game. I think the refs are still a little rusty, but hey it didn't make the difference in this game like it did in Edmonton. On to the next one.
great game nice seeing clifford get another point and the ice time of a second liner. Can he get some pp time now Also think drew needs to play less on the pp to save himself for the final defensive mintues
Good to see them pot more than 2 goals against a team known for its defense, although I'd like to see them do it on more competent goaltenders than LaBarbera.
The powerplay continues to infuriate me. Not only are they stationary, but they don't even utilize two of the forwards on a 5-on-3 (which was more like a 5-on-2). The puck is constantly going through Doughty, Kopitar, and Richards. If they're going to setup a trigger man, they should decide on doing so with a player who is going to shoot the damn puck. Jeff Carter likes to shoot the puck, try him on the opposite half wall and set him up for a shot.
Doughty's playing great. Voynov's playing okay, not doing too bad, but he can do more.
RE: Muzzin vs. Drewiske, I'd keep Muzzin in the lineup. I believe he's capable of handling larger minutes than Drewiske. But Drewiske gives us more of the Greene type play we're going to be missing out on, so I don't know either way.
Awesome win. Glad the top 6 stepped up. Looking good, keep turning it around. GO KINGS!
