Muzzin has dropped off too. Without Drew to take all the attention, it's a little different ballgame for him.
I dont think he has dropped off. This is how he is, average player. You saw this already when he played with Drew but he put some points on the scoreboard and Drew bailed him out numerous times.
Everyone is talking about Quick with that SH goal, but it was him who took that lame ass shot attempt with two defenders in front of him and that was not the first time he did that. It was about time this happened.
I was wrong that I thought he would play better with 3rd line minutes but its actually getting worse. Ellerby as partner does not help either.
Was a fun game to watch imo. Quickie played like last year. Don't mind his blue line charge in the 2nd, he just wanted to give the ducks a glimmer of hope that they'd actually beat him tonight when he stayed in his crease
Wouldve love to have seen him just lay out Getzlaf going for the puck.
I saw the game last night and went right to sleep. I really have never liked when goalies come out that far to try and stop a breakaway. It's so much of a risk and it doesn't seem to pay off a lot. But Quick was awesome the rest of the game. That one point when a player ran into him in the back of the net and then it led to a breakaway was crazy.
Good game, nice to beat the Ducks. One step closer to the playoffs.
I hope that's it for 11 pm games, I went to bed at 2, woke up at 3:30 when my cat threw up a hairball, at 6:30 when she wanted to go upstairs, shut the alarm off at 8 and woke up at 9:30 freaking out, thinking it was a weekday.
Funny how there aren't Ducks fans running smack in our PGT thread when they lose....
Boudreau pretty much shut them all up when he confirmed what we've been saying all along -- that their *advanced stats* would catch up to them and their shooting percentage was unsustainable.

With the goal against, Quick actually made it to the puck first but he tried to play it weirdly. He should have just slid and taken the puck with his body instead of trying to flick it up the boards like it looked like he tried. Also 1 of them should have just taken down Getzlaf after Quick had missed and just taken the penalty
Muzzin-Ellerby is just Sutter trying to gauge who's going to play with Greene when he comes back. That pairing is too green for the playoffs though. At least we have a solid top 4, but I think Martinez should be close to his old form and ready...
I love how duck fans try to make excuses for them losing or not winning in regulation against the Kings. Maybe this time they'll say they got bad calls or because Fowler wasn't playing. Such ********.
No excuses, it was an even game and the kings took advantage of their opportunities. We had our chances and hit posts, but I thought it was a great game to watch. Quick played great. Really hope we get a playoff series.
We need to score more than one goal in a game or we should not expect to win. Refs missed some calls, but oh well. Of course the shot the Perry saved for you with his butt would have changed the game.
