we will obtain 5 pts from that road trip, book it. Tonight game: boring, yawning, terrible for watching... but "two points, Lloyd, two points!"
I will be pleasantly surprised. I'm eager to see how they respond to failing to win against the Kings. They had a golden opportunity in OT, and a golden opportunity in the SO and came up empty. The loser point was nice but when you're chasing multiple teams with only a dozen games left, can't be satisfied with that one point. I'll be impressed if they come out swinging tonight. Another early goal, preferably by 8, 19, or 52 would do wonders.
I was surprised by the degree to which we outskated the Kings because, well, we don't usually outskate anybody. We're giving some guys that can skate - Beagle, Hillen, Orlov,Kuzya, and Chim-Fehr-Ward line - more ice time. But if I were a Kings fan, I'd worry about how my team matches up against an opponent with comparable size and physicality that can skate - you know , like the Sharks.
