Not really. This is looking like their best season since 1995-96.

Clifford, Martinez and Lewis were great last night. I really think Martinez is going to be staying up, he's a serious upgrade over Drewiske and he's better suited for the 2nd unit PP with Johnson.

Speaking of Johnson I thought he did a great job of keeping it simple, although he did make a couple of questionable passes in the offensive zone.

Doughty looks like he got tired of this losing nonsense.

Can we work on clearing the zone??? They're ****ing killing themselves out there.

I was impressed with Doughty, especially after he told the media that it was a must win game for the Kings. He backed up the talk with one of his best games of the season.

The Kings definitely need Kopitar and Doughty to be their best every night.

... I know what you're getting at, and I mentioned as much in the GDT last night. There's a time and a place where it's the right play - usually it's Kopitar creating the rebound chances for Brown, but this time it was the other way around.

Anyone remember where Ryan Smyth tapped his stick on the ice last season as if to tell Kopitar "Go here."?

Scuderi and Quick are the players that really saved their bacon last night.

If this guy isn't worse, which the inflection in his voice and calling everyone player "man", than he comes darn close. I cringed every time he spoke. Thank god I was watching it a little behind so I could fast forward when he came on toward the end.

... Quick was fortunate that the Kings scored enough to get him the win despite the soft goal he allowed to put the team behind 2-1.

I like your chances against the Wings Saturday. The 2 main reason's are:

#1. I hear Osgood is getting his first start since being injured. He will be rusty and check this out. Wings in 10/11 under with Howard in net: 14-2-2 and Osgood in net 2-2-0. Wings in 09/10 with Howard in net: 37-15-10 and Osgood in net 7-9-4. Not only do you get Osgood, you get a rusty Osgood that has not played since October 30th.

#2. Wings play the Ducks Friday night. There is a rivalry there (both teams do not like each other) and the Ducks will play physical. I expect the Wings to bring their "A game" Friday night and Saturday will be tough to get up for.

Doesn't matter. It's the Wings. Beating them is practically like winning the Stanley Cup around here. It basically never happens.

Yeah, nevermind the several point blank opportunities Florida had that he stopped.

... No more than each and every other goalie in the NHL faces in each and every game. The Kings played well in front of Quick. They allowed just 26 shots and scored 3 goals. Just about every goalie in the league will get a win if given those numbers to work with.

Good win last night, although I really wasn't paying attention to the game because the guy sitting behind me wouldn't shut up about everything.

"DON'T JUST LET THEM WALK IN"

"WHAT THE HELL BROWN, GO TO THE NET"

"GOD, ITS 1 PASS THEN SHOOT BOYS"

Really annoying stuff.

Anyways, Brown played well, very physical which was nice to see.

Clifford gets better and better each game.

Quick had some AWESOME saves

Stoll was very physical as well. Also, I'd MUCH rather Stoll take those low wrist shots then his high slappers.

Onto Detroit

Don't say this too loud, someone here can only focus on a somewhat "soft" goal allowed by quick.

Disagree. When the Kings started the season they were not allowing those types of quality chances. Most shots were coming from the outside. Quick had quite a few difficult stops to make last night.

I bet you even have a shot chart to prove my point.

Brown on the other hand . . .

Finally a win, but damn I hate being in the Western Conference. A bad week or two and you're buried in the standings.

No worries. Lot's of season left and we had to have a bad streak sooner or later. At least our bad streak happened while we were missing players to injury.

Now the question is, has the streak ended? A win against Detroit tomorrow would be a very positive sign IMO. Even if it is the 2nd game of a back-to-back with Osgood in net for Detroit.

It was a good win, but i kind of wanted to see more of williams on the first line. When he was there, his speed opened up room for Kopitar to operate and they generated some quality scoring chances. But then Murray changed the lines again and put Simmonds back up on the first line, which didnt help much. I dont know why Murray changed them (maybe it was after Lewis missed the empty net on the backhand)...

Brown played a solid game, glad to see him start being physical again.

Drew...he was flying again. I was hoping one of his shots would have went in..but oh well.

Lets see how we stack against the Wings...

Quick played.. well. That goal was pretty soft though, and I'm not complaining but Bernier probably gets crucified if he lets that one in.. Much like Quick would have been towards the end of last year.

But.. Quick got the win and thats what matters.

Not to mention that without that ridiculous bounce off the glass, the soft goal was the only one to get in. If Quick only gives up 1 goal a game, I don't care if they're ALL softies.

If Quick needs to fix anything, it's STAY IN THE GOD-DAMNED CREASE!!!

Quick: I appreciate that you want to play the puck, but you're bad at it. Leave it be...

That's because Quick is playing better than Bernier. That's just how it is. Not to say, all goals are Berniers fault. But, when you are playing as well as Quick is, you let the bad goals go because he still got you a win and is playing well every game. (Also, props to him for shutting down the third period last night.)

Bernier is capable of playing better. It's just going to take him some time.

Quick is going to have his off nights. That's something I can not wait for.
