If I ever read a Sharks fan complain about the reffing, I'm going to completely ****ing lose it. I'm still seething about the quick whistle on the Penner goal. What an absolute joke. A 2-1 game going into the 3rd is a big difference from a 2-0 game.
I am just amazed at how Mike Richards continues to get quality minutes. Kopitar is invisible again. Can't win games if your supposed top guys aren't scoring. I wish we could play that Penner-Lewis-Toffoli line all game, how great would that be? Top line for the Kings tonight no doubt.
How is Kopitar having a bad game? Richards has been our best forward in the playoffs.
He gets top minutes because sometimes he is the best player on the ice. Then he has games like this. I challenge Kings fans to find me a more inconsistent player from game to game than MRichards, I can go back almost 25 years and can't think of one. Frolov would look like an all-pro for 5 games and horrible for the next 5, lots of guys do that, never quite seen anyone who does what MR does from a game to game basis.
He'll probably be the best player on the ice in game 5 and no-show again game 6 or 7.
If you mean consistently bad, then yes. His constant turnovers in the offensive zone drives me nuts and his constant miscues in his zone drives me crazy as well. Give him a bad team to play against and maybe he plays fine. Put the Sharks on him and bam. It looks like his decision-making is too slow. Just my opinion.
