With game six of the 2012 SCF being number one, last night had to be in the top 10 on the list of games I've attended in the past 35 years.

That was about the best I've ever seen him play. No offense to Voynov's effort with his goal, but Penner's hit and subsequent pass to Richards turned the game around.
Agree with this. Penner is getting better and better. Hope Dean signs him to another year or two if he keeps this up. And he belongs on second line with MR and JC

it seems that the advantage we have is vet's that can control the teams emotions better than they do, having their team leaders be backes, polak doesn't match up to having brown,richards,carter etc.....our team leadership is incredible and guys like brown and richards always seem to lay the big hit, work extra hard on the shift almost whatever is needed

The Kings are also much more mentally tough than the Blues.

I don't know what it is that the Kings do but they just seem to unravel teams without distracting themselves. I guess teams get frustrated because the Kings just keep coming and pounding away. It really is something to watch. The season started out slow bu tthe way the team has been playing the past two weeks it is really awesome to watch.

Voynov's speed is something we always hear about, but rarely get to see.

Watching him win that race for the puck last night was awesome.

This is one of the reasons to like the Kings in almost any 7-game series they play against most teams. It is going to take superior goaltending for an opponent to take the Kings out in a 7-game series IMO.

I think it's Penner that sums it up pretty well on the Cup champs DVD. Something along the lines of the Kings being a ragtag bunch of misfits that never quit and never give up. Pretty accurate when you think about the stigma that a lot of guys on this team have. A soft spoken captain with a lisp in Brown, Richards and Carter and the fallout from their Philly days, Penner and his on-going battle with consistent play, Williams being considered injury prone. Stoll and his terrible fashion sense and love of models. Greene and his wackiness, cuss ords apparently being the only words Quick can say out loud in public. There really is no team in the NHL that is made up of that much baggage in the league, yet somehow it's become the teams personality and the reason for their success.

As much as it seems the general consensus outside of our circle is that we were a fluky run, I doubt anyone wants a piece of us in the playoffs. There are no easy wins vs. the Kings. Other teams MAY have more pure skill (and that's debatable if our top players show up), but even on an off night, we're going to grind you into oblivion. I.E. Nashville game. Hell, even last night!!

Our real struggles are dealing with speed teams that pop goals in on transition, but the only PLAYOFF bound team that does that is Chicago (and to a lesser extent VAN and SJS). Edmonton and Colorado seem to do that to us (capitalize quickly off neutral zone turnovers), but theirs is more of a pond-hockey offense and is not going to win a 7-game series. It'll steal a game from us every now and then, but not consistently.

Mayyyybe the Ducks fit into the above category, but I haven't watched any of their games over the last week or two...I was having a hard time reading them before. Looks like they do a little of the above + a little bit of "throw it all at the net and get a stick on it", which scares me with our young D.

True but what you said about the off night thing is true.

Look at the lackluster effort the Nucks put in after playing the Kings.

Calgary walked all over them, the Nucks were spent after that game with the Kings.

They better pray they don't draw the Kings round one again.

They have some d-men that can bang, which would make it interesting, and some forwards that can play the physical game, but I don't think they'd be able to do it consistently. Didn't they go out and lay a stinker after the Howard show too? I could check after lunch

If you're referring to their quick-strike scoring, most of that vs. the Kings has been pretty fluky. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want to tempt fate with the top-end skill guys they have, but they're certainly not the Detroit of the past.

They always play well vs LA. If we're talking about playoff matchups, they'd be one of the ones I'd hope LA can avoid.

No argument here.

Plus, they're well-coached. I don't like the idea of playing on the road at Detroit--can you imagine the fire drill of Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Brunner vs. Nolan-Clifford-Fraser? Cue benny hill music!
