LOL oh Craig Button. Chances that the Kings make the playoffs: "Very slim." He never passes up an opportunity to hate on the Kings.
Kings are 3 points out of 8th with a game in hand = very slim chance of making the playoffs.
Not to mention the fact that they're rounding into the form we saw last spring.
Craig Button. Real Man of Genius.
The guy has no idea what a playoff team looks like since he's never led one there. Very slim. No one at this point is very slim on making the playoffs, outside of Columbus maybe, but only because they are building for next year.

Oh wait, we won? I guess the boo birds can stay away for a few days.
We won today, we dominated for the most part yesterday, we are rounding into shape and we play Columbus next. Assuming we don't crap the bed like San jose did tonight, we'll be in pretty good shape by the weekend.
It was nice to see the Kings with a decisive win. This is the team I want to see show up more often. So far that's two games in a row we've seen the Kings dominate, but unfortunately they came away with two points. If they persevere like this, they'll come out on the right end in the W-L column.
“It’s no secret. It’s going out there and playing for the group. You got too many guys out there looking at the stat sheet and wondering how many goals and assists and cookies they got rather than taking a hit to make a play and getting run over to get a puck out so that maybe your teammates can have a three on two. So you can block a shot or kill a penalty when we really need it so we can stay in a game, and we just don’t have that desperation, that accountability, that responsibility to each other and that’s the thing – look at the team we played tonight. They all have that. Their guys that are willing to get run over for the guys sitting next to them. And I said it after the playoffs and it still rings true. We need all 20 guys to have that mentality that if I’m the guy to sacrifice my body or on the stat sheet so that we can be successful. All twenty guys need to have that mentality every single night or we’re going to continue to have interviews like this.
