Big Ben’s Beautiful Blanking
Ben Scrivens got his first start of the season and shutout a shitty Florida team. The Kings stayed out of the penalty box, they gave the Panthers a dose of 33 hits (compared to 24 for Florida) and they didn’t have to rely on Jeff Carter.
Mike Richards’ great pass to Dan Carcillo is the reason why Carcillo is on the 2nd line instead of Frattin.
Justin Williams continues to have a great start to the season and I’ll credit Anze Slumpitar for the excellent pass. Jordan Nolan seems to be getting better and better…. oh, wait, he doesn’t want to come out of the lineup. No wonder he’s doing so well.
Scrivens was tested a few times, but nothing like Quick is used to. Glad he got a chance to show Kings fans what he can do.
A friend pointed out to me that although Jake Muzzin might be -5, one of those minuses came when Jon Quick forgot to stop a simple clearing pass and another came when the net was empty (you shouldn’t get a – for that)
Same friend also came up with the best nickname for Thomas Hertl. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Hertl”
Dan Carcillo hasn’t had a fight all year? I’ll lay odds that changes next game.
How is Colorado winning with THAT defense. Can’t wait until they go into a 5 game slump and Roy’s head explodes like that guy from “Scanners”
Kopitar and Richards haven’t scored yet this season. Combines paychecks this season? 15.1 million dollars.
Trevor Lewis is a UFA – do we keep him or let Vey take his place?
