The score has been close, but the blues have controlled the play for 5 of the 7 periods. Games haven't really been that close. Blues deserve to be up 2-0.

Nothing says the kings can't win the next two, but i still don't see the kings winning a road game. Their defense gets exposed on the road. Most teams struggle without their best two defensive defensemen.

How come all the trans-fans come out of the woodwork when things don't look so well? What is the matter with you people?

It's one thing to assess whether one team is better than the other. Both these teams are very close in method of play, size, and abilities. I think we have the better goalie. So we are down 2-0. Big deal, it still takes 4 games to win a series. 3 out of the next 4 are at home, and the Kings have been solid at home this season.

I sure wish all the naysayers would just get the **** out, especially if we win this series. Don't want to hear or see from any of you from here on in.

Either way, we had more GWG opps that we didn't score and there were two many of those to count. I get tired of people blaming the goalie. Game 1 without Quick? It could easily have been 5-1. Game 2, similiar but we showed more control. We're just not penetrating their D enough and putting away the break aways we have or finish the shots we take.

We actually have to win at home in the first place.

Seeing as the Kings have been horrible on the road.. losing like 8 in a row? That has something to do with it and Blues being a good team, also.

These have been very close games. Blues just have had luck on their side. It isn't a bad thing, just the way it is right now. If the Blues can win in LA then I will be impressed.

Seems like ditching Drewiskie for Ellerby turned out to be a ****** move up to this point.

Kopitar is the one that is ****ing killing me right now, he looks worse than Alexander Frolov on a bad day out there....

The Kings' breakouts were pretty damn good through 2 periods. Not surprised that when the pressure increased it got a lot tougher.

It's gonna be a tough road back. This is gut check time for this core leadership group to see if they can come back and make a series of it.

Of course he did, because that's what a tough SOB that has his teammates' back does.

They only have to win one.

I think the Kings are lacking some on-ice leadership right now, and that's why Matt Greene needs to be out there. Brown and Williams have played well, but otherwise it just isn't happening offensively.

Conspiracy Theory: Quick has mad money bet on the Blues in Vegas (maybe with Gretzky)

Dude plays awesome both Games 1 and 2 then gives a pass to Steen and lets in a softy to JackMan for the GWGs.

I don't feel like Sutter is coaching as well as he is capable of, the team looked down and lost after the Blues tied it. Staff has got to help the players keep focus and keep playing our game when St.Louis began to take over. You could feel the air coming out of the Kings balloon.

The Blues play doesn't surprise me. The Kings on the other hand do, in a negative way.

Just thinking about Keith's and Lucic's comments after they won the cup- you win the big prize and that's it, it doesn't get better than the stanley cup. That's why you have to shuffle the lines with new names and do it all over.

Seriously.. I don't want to see any of them posting if they have given up. (We know that won't be true) It's not over till it's over. What's wrong with that? Why give up early?

Kings got what it takes but if they don't use it then it doesn't even matter.


oh yea, and **** ellerby.
I disagree. I think LA played hard... it's just STL played harder.

No need to overdramatize here. Kings were dominant for most of the game. Blues 1st goal was a lucky one. LA heading home where the momentum can shift. One game at a time, one period at a time. But have to play hard all 3 periods, not 2 and a half...

We'll tie it at home and then it will be a 2 out of 3.

GKG!

I'll feel more optimistic later, I'm sure, but right now it's just a killer...and I broke the arm on my chair. XD

So what, reading these play by play comments on here it's always pretty much nothing but drama queens. Makes me wanna puke. If Kopitar is covered too well, he's covered too well. If you can't see it yourself, wash out your ears so you'll hear the announcers tell you so.

Regular season records and stats should play no part in the playoffs.

We lost fair and score. We are being outplayed by the Blues. We really need to pick it up.
