That was one of the most brutal periods I have seen this season.

What the hell was Hejda doing in that period? He was running around with no head.

What the hell was Duchene doing in that period defensively? Not covering his guy on both goals?

What the **** is up with all those blind passes? Elliott is by far the the worst player when it comes to not looking where you're shooting or passing.

Terrible.

Welp, 1 period done. Should have been 2-1 but Stastny just cannot score on the open net.

Barrie is playing so good, his speed is so underrated.
The weakest penalty call was Barrie's penalty last game for lifting the stick, or "hooking" as the NHL calls it now.

Meh Landeskog is gonna be the one that scores on that line if anyone so I wont fault Stasny too much, it's not his game and Jones is a paperweight basically allowing the line to look like ot's 5v5 rather than a pk but he doesn't do anything.

Putting your stick and hand up in the guy's chest to keep him from getting past you after the win is interference. Points to Duchene for trying. He just got busted doing it.

It was a rolling backhand pass that he tried to settle and fire simultaneously and he got the shot off quickly given everything. Sometimes I wonder if people just want to complain about he guy for not putting up five points a night or something.

It's one period into the game with an actually good linemate that just got back from a concussion, both of them have been hot and cold so far with good and bad plays. Duchy's line hasn't even had a scoring chance so far but Stastny gets all the crap.

Terrible.
On the first goal, pap overloaded to the left side and lolelliot was way too deep in his zone. On the 2nd goal the avs had the puck and Barrie made a terrible giveaway. Neither goal was Duchene's fault.

You'd think, since this is his seventh NHL season, that Avs fans know that Stastny has no scorers instinct. He settles the puck down too much, he shoots into pads/chest too often.

It's frustrating, but it's not like he wouldn't score more if he could. He just has a very poor feel around the net.

All Kings are doing is overloading the slot and Duchene decided to wander off on both goals watching the puck. He gets my blame on both goals, terrible coverage.

This, that's not a penalty, what is Duchene supposed to do? Fall to the ice and curl into a ball so Richards can pass him?

And to the Kings fan, think you're in the wrong GDT....

I remember his rookie season when he had a great nose for the net.

No, he should probably get set up around the net or for a pass from the dman he won the puck to.

He's a 20 goal scorer, he should score those.

I wouldn't say wander off but the blame is on Barrie, Elliott and pap way more than Matt. Especially pap on the 1st goal they're were 3 players already on the left side

Kings are not a good team for matinees and these days they aren't a good team period. Not quite sure how we're making them look like this.
