A 60 minute game. Glad they were able to rally around Goose.
Yup, the next big acquisition will be a top pairing left shot defender. Not a lot of options on the left side within the organization. Nousiainen might be the big surprise, and others like Moverare and Hults a bit more than me, but the left side defense needs some additions.
The only bad thing tonight was the faceoffs. 39% for LA -61% ANA ...sheesh. Not a good night at the dots.
Great win and thank Goodness the chosen one Zegras did not score against us. Next game however though big big challenge.
How cute that the Ducks tweeted this early in the game.
That's my other beef with MacD, like you would think a guy like that getting lost in coverage would at least default to getting to the front of the net and blasting someone like Greene but twice tonight he was the last one there and got softly pushed over lol
Good for Grosenick! What a game by him. Super calm, always in position, interview demeanor matches his play.
The kings should pickup that guy on the ducks that scored the 5th goal. The kid's got a scoring touch!
Yeah, you know what, I couldn't care less that he is a Duck and our "rival", but even with Team USA I gotta say that I cannot stand that kid. He's all flash, prone to whining, just the kind of guy who deserves a butt end in the ribs on every shift.
Players with the same number of goals as Adrian Kempe:
1. Steven Stamkos
2. Patrick Kane
3. Nikolaj Ehlers
4. Johnny Gaudreau
5. Mark Scheifele
he looked suuuuper grumpy when Moore wouldn't give him any easy space even at the end of the game. Very "welcome to the show, kid" moments.
Kopitar made him look absolutely pedestrian being there to pick off every pass casually, basically waiting for them to hit his blade.
He's got immense IQ though, he'll learn and be better for it, just shows how big of a difference there is advancing to the NHL. You can't be a hero every shift. It's the same for Vilardi--it comes in flashes, growth = consistency.
But hey remember that awesome between the legs pass on the power play that resulted in absolutely nothing? Eyeball test I tell you!
Happy for Grosenick, what a game by the lad. Good win, Kempe you sexy beast keep it up.
Nah, let's take his teeth.
On one hand, I like the arrogance, the "i can do anything" with the puck.
On the other, if he's going to be a pissy little bitch everytime someone is within 5 feet of him, he's gotta get run to kingdom come by guys like Tkachuk.
I know the league is different now, but dammit, if a hot shot kid ever tried a lacrosse goal on my goalie he is getting his ass handed to him. I really miss that mentality. Fear used to keep punks in line.
Zegras is definitely good enough to put his bag of tricks aside and go about shit the right way. The no look fakes, every pass has to show somebody up, everybody look at my mits, god I hate that bitch game.
He looks like Dustin Penner with goal pads.
Hopefully he doesn't turn into an overweight loony bin after retirement
That's what I'm taking about!!!
As long as he doesn’t do a bunch of ecstasy and turn into an EDM DJ.
Nice win. I admit to being wrong about Kempe.
If the kings could actually hold a lead with under a minutes left, they'd be solidly a playoff team. There is hope!
Kempe has arrived.
A 'freakish' amount of goals by Brown, 6 goals by AA in 17 games and 11 by Kempe, make a big difference from what was
mostly a 1 line team last year. Vilardi has emerged as a legit #2 NHL center... The PP looks like the best it has looked in years. I like that both Drew and Kopi are shooting more on it.
This gif NEVER gets old. It's an absolute beauty.
No kidding. Man, how bad do those first two games against Minnesota feel now? If the Kings win those two games in regulation instead of losing in overtime, they'd have 30 points and be tied with Colorado for third, and Minnesota would be in sixth with 27 points, one point behind the Coyotes. Ouch.
