    He allowed Schenn to be parked in front of Petersen.

    Also defensemen should be blocking shots not get out of the way.

    Yeah, this is where I'm at. After the initial frustration I am just excited that we are going to the end of games with the lead. That's a hell of a lot of progress from last season.

    I also put on the Sharks game and them getting blown out again made me feel better.

    Yeah, anther yucky kick in the nuts but lots of overreactions here. If the Kings and Blues continue to play like they did tonight I feel there is really no comparison who the better team is. Bounces went to St Louis at the end there but they were badly outplayed for 90% of this game. If the Kings can learn from these mistakes, bear down a little harder on opportunities, and the refs call a fair game I think they can win some big ones in the second half of the season.

    Damn frustrating to watch but the team is still so much better than I thought they'd be this season.

    At least put Carter (who was flying all night) with Kopitar in OT. Its not like they don't have a history of like totally dominating the entire league.

    Pretty pivotal stretch. Losing streak continues. Gotta put that game away.

    Doughty had been out there for almost a minute, all walker had to do was wait 2 more seconds, and it not a penalty. Doughty was also so far away from the play, he wouldn;t have factored into anything they tried .

    Tonight's score indicative of Sutter being back in the NHL.

    OT lines should be:

    Carter - AA
    Doughty

    Kopitar - Vilardi
    Roy

    Double shift them every 45 seconds until we light the lamp.

    They used to just go for it and were lethal in OT. Kopitar , Carter and Doughty , they'd win the faceoff, wind it up and go, then win it within the first minute. Today, they've become really conservative not doing much at all, almost looking for the perfect spot. They have the same guys, but aren't being allow to just open it up.

    OReilly had 3 assists and owned the face off dots tonight.

    For sure. Kopitar was like 1-234 against him, including losing the one in OT. They never touched the puck once and lost.

    Perhaps. But I'm thinking speed on one line, and methodical analysis on the other line.

    Todd was not happy about the aggressiveness trying to get the EN goal.1 or 2 guys up the ice, ok, 3 guys up there was bad and it cost them the win.

    What does that say when Brown and Carter scored the only two goals?

    I mean it's just mind boggling that Todd continuously think that IaFAILlo has anything good to offer in OT. He's pretty much a better version of Amadios and that's not saying much. AT ALL. I need to stop watching these games not good for my health. LOL.

    I'm a big Iafallo defender and he has zero business being out there in OT.

    No one is taking the game to the boards, it's all open ice creativity and possession. Yeah puck protection too and he can do that but no one good enough to be out in OT is dumb enough to let Iafallo crash their airspace with that much room.

    If there is anything I learned from this game, it's that AA is garbage on D. So many times he shied away from contact and the agressive d play to "cover his man". He plays like someone being told how to play, but had no instincts or confidence on his own.

    All the talk about building a team with speed and skill, and ironically they've looked like Terry Murray's Kings recently.

    Last 10 games: 2.00 GA/PG (Tied for Best in the NHL)

    Last 5 game: 2.00 GF/PG (Worst in the NHL)

    I like TMac as a coach, think he brought some new ideas to help in certian areas but his system does have flaws.
    The powerplay is doing fine although we should continue to use the flanks to shoot more and create a low play for another option.

    But IMO the flaws are:

    Team is too soft, passive. Maybe it's a personelle thing, I hope we get a little bigger at F and D soon without sacrificing talent\speed.

    5-5 the team has no possession, at all. Dump and chase with F1 as a forechecker. As soon as F1 loses the puck the rest of the players leave the zone. No sustain forecheck. Basically a trap system. No wonder 3-3 looks horrid.

    The PK is ridiculous. We need to apply more pressure on the puck carrier without getting out of position. Seems the whole purpose of the PK is to just prevent the cross ice pass but opposing players find so many seams anyway. What is the point of speed if we can't use it on the PK to close in on players and get back into position. Goes back to my first point being too passive, we are reactive and not active on plays.

    We can still win some games playing this way but we aren't dominating the game. Get a lead and trap the game.
