Two Wins Means Nothing
- St Louis had a 2 games to 0 advantage and lost 4 straight
- The Kings won only 8 times on the road in 24 games during the regular season (and then three times in St Louis in the post season)
- The Kings can’t win a faceoff to save their lives
- Clifford at least skated today
- The Sharks lost only 7 times at home all season. Only twice in regulation.
- The Sharks get the last change meaning the perfect matchup
- Quick gave up 3 goals, which should be enough to win a game. This means Quick has to give up LESS than 2 goals a game if the Kings are going to win
- Pavelski, Thornton and Couture have zero goals combined
- The Kings used up all of their power plays Thursday night
- We’re more banged up than they are
- I like this:
“They’re big and physical,” Tommy Wingels said. “We saw how intense their first series was, so they’re obviously playing real good hockey having won four straight. Any time we play them it’s physical, that’s for sure.”
Brad Stuart said: “They’re a hard team. They’re going to play hard, and every line is going to throw some physicality at you. They’re going to make it tough, and they don’t give you any ice for free, you’re going to have to work for it.”
- Anze Kopitar is a warrior!
- it was a dirty hit by a dirty player – enough already!
