    I don't we are 5-0 against LA without Reaves in the lineup and 0-1-1 with him in it.

    The Kings board looks and sounds like death. Hates their team, wants the management fired, etc. Did say they love Quick, but, can't believe they're losing to a "kiddie" team. :rolleyes:

    I get the urge to play Reaves, but If it ain't broke don't fix it. Kings will cheap shot regardless. Better to just go for the sweep with the guys who have got them there.

    Agreed, why change what's working. Lets focus on where Perron fits in the lineup and who makes sense on the third line.

    I proclaim today national Eakin day.

    I built a statue of him. Out of snow.

    John Stevens is complaining about the Haula hit on Kopitar. Saying "he doesn't like hard hockey, he LOVES hard hockey. Good honest hard hockey"

    :eyeroll: Too bad his team doesn't play that way.

    Having Perron back was huge. I definitely felt like the offense was getting some momentum in the 3rd period even before the 3 goals. Keep the momentum and yeah figure out the 3rd line.

    Gotta bring back a nice Tatar sauce to compliment those Perrons and Eakins. Serve piping hot.

    No thanks. He brought nothing to Games 1 & 2. All he did was panic every time the puck was on his stick; either missing the net on shot attempts or just throwing the puck away when it came to him.

    That was fun. What else is there to say? :laugh:

    Only change I'd make for G4 is to put Perron with Haula and Tuch and move Neal down to the 3rd line.

    Can't just write him off 2 games in a row like that. You have to hope he comes back with fire.

    I don't see much from Carpenter either though. Doesn't really matter, I don't think we are a different team if either one is in or out. I might sit Carrier just to go completely skill and ignore hitting since its not winning the games for the Kings, but again not going to get too worried about that.

    Adjusting to reality can be painful. Lot of Kings' faithful felt like because they split with us they were the better team. That the Knights had to be a sham. All that "we want the Knights" nonsense too, don't forget.

    Well they got the Knights. And tbh the Knights for the most part haven't been fully playing their hockey. Well, until late third period in game 3 that is...

    Carpenter had the sweet apple to Eakin that tied up the game. Gallant also doesn't change the lineup when they are winning. Tatar isn't doing anything great and Reaves sucks donkey balls so I'd roll out the same group of guys, but maybe move Perron back up to the 2nd line if he looks like he's up to speed in the next two practices.

    Close to it. I still think we've seen better hockey out of them and I still believe that for much of this game and games 1 and 2, Quick got in their heads. I think scoring the third goal and proving he's human could be big for getting smarter offensive work done in game 4.

    While I agree he shouldn't be plastered to the bench for the rest of the playoffs I have to agree with Boris. Tatar played like a scared puppy for the first two games of this series. Give him a leash but we can't give him a very long one. If he draws back in and we see more of the same, we might have to call it a wrap unless there's an injury.

    Oh and btw that last goal... The way those two dudes read each other I mean damn. Kings are dangerous even when down 0-3, but they're in trouble if these guys start loosening up like they did that last period. Might have to endure a Knights celebration on their ice.

    I'm not as familiar with your guys' players as you but I thought Tatar was good in games 1 and 2. He was more noticeable in those two games than Perron was in this one.

    Sounds like you're watching a totally different series than I am. Perron's re-insertion into the lineup was noticeable right away. He was backing up the D skating the puck into the zone, setting up numerous scoring chances, while also QBing the PP effectively.

    Neal to the 3rd line? You don' mean James Neal do you, because that would be insane.

    I don't think it's insane. That line was damn good when Neal was out. I just don't think Perron on the 3rd line is a great fit. Neal is the worst of our top 9 wingers defensively and on the cycle. Let him feast on the easier matchups the Eakin line gets.

    If anything, Tuch should move down and put Perron with Neal and Haula.

    The thing that would worry me about that would be the lack of speed on the wings. Especially when a team comes with a really heavy forecheck like the Kings had tonight.
