Pretty sad when Pens vs Flyers has better Defense than the Kings game lol.

Fourth line was awesome, Drew and Brown came to play.

Quick looks a little rusty (understandably) Defense was all kinds of bad.

Penalty Kill was another bright spot.

Cliffy/Nolan/Doughty only players that played well imo.

Carter/Richards/Greene played real bad imo.

After seeing the Peg' score I think anyone associated with Mod Holden was jinxed today

Gagne, Richards, and Carter were absolutely useless. Brown was hustling, Doughty played pretty well (despite the unlucky bounce off his skate), but boy, are we missing Kopitar and Mitchell. Quick had some unlucky bounces but he didn't really get a chance to get into a groove.

Oh well, there's always next game.

Yeah, Dewey looks awesome out there. Voynov looks a bit slow, and Greene is gonna need to make adjustments to his game if those damn refs are actually gonna keep calling those interference calls. Gagne looks lost, but he'll get better with a few more games. He'll have his moments. Nolan/Cliffy/Lewis/Brownie/Penner had good games too.

Gagne had some alright positioning but he did crap with it. Overall I know it's one game and all, but I'd love to see him gone and have Toffoli play instead. I know it's too early though

Remember how bad the Kings always look the first pre-season game? I'm just gonna chalk it up to rust. They'll find their groove eventually.

Yes or a new interpretation of it anyways. The league is going to try and cut down on the amount of time allowed to make contact with a player after he releases the puck. The refs are gonna struggle for awhile.

Tuff loss. Banner hung awesome.

Banner hanging, distracting and I thought cheesy. Lift the banner smaller ceremony (maybe a little different?) and then go kick butt.

We will be fine once we are 100% healthy.

Lots of players waiting for the other guy to make a big play . That will go away pretty quickly.

Would have been a nice win but on to the next one.

GREAT TO GET THE BOYS BACK ON THE ICE!

GO KINGS GO!!!

Only center play I liked today was Fraser. Stoll, Carter and Richards didn't look good.

No emotion on a weekend afternoon game? What is this, last season before the Cup?

Passing must get better. They looked like pre-Sutter with the passing.

Bad game. 4th line showed up, that's about it. Banner out of the way. First home game out of the way. They earned a freebie.

One game. One loss. On to Tuesday.

Fourth line looked awesome, Stewart/Richardson are going to have a tough time cracking lineup. Unless Lewis and King drop off the face of the earth.

I just don't see Sutter breaking that Fourth line up.

Speaking of which, Lewis actually played pretty well, in my opinion. He just has stone hands. Really unfortunate.

Look at the bright side... we scored more goals than the other two home teams who played afternoon games. Every home team lost this afternoon.

The Kings (still) suck playing day games, and they looked rusty overall. Onward.

It really is, Lewis has all the tools you want in a third line player.

Except he can't score, he is a black hole for offense.

The one exception being the playoff's, Somehow Lewis finds a scoring touch.

13 points in 26 GP in the playoff's

I could see Richardson or Stewart stepping in for King if he doesn't play great. I think Clifford-Fraser-Nolan is here to stay.

I really hope DL lands a vet Dman in a trade soon. Muzzin + Loktionov should get us someone decent right?

Blah, it's only one game, but we are about to go on the road and face some young teams with speed. We better figure our defensive positioning out pretty quick

One other note... Willie Mitchell is critical to this team's success, and if he's out for 2 months, the Kings will be scraping for playoff spot #8. They need Mitchell back in a hurry. More critical than Kopitar.

Everyone want's a Defenseman in the mold of Mitchell. For all the talk about Defensive D guys are a dime a dozen....

Well when you need one, there are none available or around.
