dominating again and again . poor devils , no luck at all .
sweep baby sweep .
the devils were lucky to get to this point honestly. I mean the panthers had every chance to beat them,philly played no defense or goaltending, even though we played bad we still should have won plus we had a lot of bad injuries
Seriously. I was weary of giving him a 7m+ contract. He is a great, hardworking player, but nothing in his game is exceptional except his forecheck. When he joins the Rangers July 1st, his hands will be turned into stone. Book it.
Torts would be wise emulating the Kings breakout strategy next season. Allow our Dmen to skate with the puck more and make more poised plays. The Kings do not overuse the stretch pass or hard around the walls.
Kings players are allowed to close the gaps to make shorter, quicker passes.
But knowing Torts, he thinks the game is still caught into a "pinball" like transitional approach. Not the smartest coach in the world.
Conn Smyth will probably go to Quick. Most consistent player for Kings throughout the playoffs. He never really had to be fantastic, but he was solid pretty much every game.
