Not wanting to find a negative here, but just how awful can Brown be?

Brown being outshined for the second straight game by the 2 rookies on his line.

Quick came up big. We kinda just turtled in the final 10 minutes, but whatever. Get two points against the best team in the east in their arena and leave.

Poni played a helluva game and deserves a little credit

I don't disagree. It should have been a penalty for hitting from behind. Not sure if it's 5 and game but it's definitely a penalty.

Nice! Best win of the year and the preponderance of the posts are whining about Brown. Gotta love this place!

Fantastic win today. The only thing better than beating the Flyers is beating the Flyers with Chris Pronger. A whining, crying, can't ever take a hit without becoming enraged, Chris Pronger.

So the refs missed one? They couldn't have picked a better player and better time to miss one.

Edit: Cleared.

Great, gutsy win. Glad the team got two here when I would have been happy with one; shocked and happy that they were able to dig down and grind it out when they started getting behind the 8-ball with penalties and fatigue. Remember, second game of a back-to-back...I'm proud and impressed!

Hopefully, it's a confidence-builder.

And nice to see Pronger enjoy some karma. Dude still plays by the 2000 rulebook.

It was rhetorical and the answer to your question is a big: NO

So how much of a whine fest is the Flyer board right now? They have a sick sense of entitlement over there, as if being first in the East is a huge accomplishment.

Brown continues to be one of the worst players on the Ice.

What a game by Quick.

He is now 4-0 when facing 40 or more shots on goal this season. Gamer!

That's a little overdramatic given that they were all tired today, but it's not as big of a deal when you're snake-bit/underachieving forward isn't on the 1st line (let us all rejoice that Murray saw the light there).

I wouldn't mind seeing Handzus on the 4th line when Sturm comes back. Just make sure Loktionov is still around.

Sturm-Kopitar-Simmonds
Smyth-Stoll-Williams
Clifford-Loktionov-Brown
Poni-Handzus-Lewis

Murray can still move Hanzus up in a close game late in the 3rd.

gotta be one of Quick's bests of the year....he came up big more than a few times and looked solid. nice to see Doughty get the goal/game winner...love the celebration (quiet Flyer fans and the scream). I'd also agree Poni looked good (A+ checking game)...it'd be nice to see him get some goals. Lokti looks great as a center....his game is way elevated in that position.

I loved that big hug Doughty gave to Quick at the end of the game. It was like "thanks for saving our ass!"

Just watched the Pronger hit a couple of times and yes it looked like it should be a 2 min pen, but Pronger knew what was coming because he turned his head and saw Stoll coming at him as he was looking for a penalty . He saw him turned and positioned himself a couple of feet away from the board and just waited for the hit. That is why I believe the ref did not call it since he was right there. but on the other hand those refs where mostly blind...so?

As good as Poni's been playing, he should get a shot at top LW spot.

Yes, someone has to waived to make room. Martinez and Loktionov are the only ones waiver exempt, but the Kings need Loktionov's skill in the lineup at center.

I don't care if the Kings lose Harrold or Westgarth to waivers. Any injuries to the defense will get a call up for Voynov anyways.

Pronger crying and whining at the end of the game was icing on the cake to this win.
