Looked like the Kings packed their bags after the 1st. Somebody check Kopitar's pulse. Can't really say any player had a good game. Their passing is off and they can't generate many quality chances offensively.
King on the 2nd line is a waste and Stoll got caught with a terrible pinch looking for a check that led to the winning goal. This team needs to wake the **** up. They can't win faceoffs, they are getting pinned along the boards, and they can't connect with two consecutive passes.
Only two goals scored in two games, and none of them were 5-on-5. That's unacceptable.
Hey Kopi, Carter, Richards you guys can all start scoring now. Big name guys havnt been big game players this year. I'm pissed but not surprised, Quick and Williams can't be the only two guys to show up every night. And maybe one day Sutter will learn Muzzerby is a diaster waiting to happen every shift but that's just wishful thinking now.
Kings played one good period in St. Louis, that is not going to get it done.
This series is far from over, and for those L.A. fans who are saying "sweep" why don't you just leave. You really don't understand hockey.
I'm not one of those fans, but when you look at how the games have gone, it's tough to be optimistic down 2-0. Kopitar has been effectively shut down.. in fact our entire top 6 has been essentially shut down.
Our defense are getting hemmed in by the Blues forecheck and really, there's only one player good enough and smart enough to move the puck out efficiently. The rest are struggling to say the least.
And Quick, as good as he's been, has let the team down on the 2 game winning goals.
Sure the games have been close, but one team is obviously carrying the play and the other is just watching it all go down.
