Everyone save for a couple of exceptions is simply playing their worst hockey at the same time. Happened to Pittsburgh against Boston and look where they are now. Could be due to a number of reasons for that, but it happens and we can't pin this on one particular player or reason.
That's what I've been trying to say. When your best players don't step up, you just look like an everyday average so,so team. Kings looking like that now.
Shaw needs to be dealt with and harshly. If he touches the ice in the 3rd period he should be sat down with prejudice.
I would hate to see us go all Duncan Keith on someone but cheapshots should never be tolerated especially without retribution and since the league has proven itself inept and incapable of doing anything about it someone should.
That said we aren't close to out of this game yet.
