I was perfectly cool with the dual noncalls. Let them sort that shit out on their own.
that's kinda what led to the 2nd period getting out of hand though, usually i'd agree but i'd rather see offsetting minors in that situation
the crosschecks are a penalty.. brownie's judoka impersonation was definitely a penalty too
I'd normally be okay with it as you can at least pretend you're part of the play going on and battling, but Nosek actively left the puck/play and just skated over to clean Brownie out in the slot while he was doing nothing lol
But you're probably right as long as they're just teeing off on each other
I cant find this hit on twitter either
The Knights are the NHL's team. I seriously don't think people how realize how evident it is. The amount they do, the calls they get away with. It's pretty insane. I hope Bjornfot is okay, if he isn't the Kings should absolutely seek retribution of similar stature. Vegas has been pounding on the Kings way too long. A stern message needs to be sent. Preferably on one of their beloved players, like Stone.
I hate to be a downer, but the Kings only won this because 2 bad goals by Fleury.
The Kings also hit 2 posts and Andersson was completely robbed of a 2nd goal.
And even if this was 2 undeserved points, the Kings have had a few games where they deserved better, it all evens out over a season.
And if the Kings are serious about making a push they need to take care of business at home and sweep the Sharks. If the Kings sweep the Sharks they'll be essentially tied for the final spot and the Sharks will be buried. A split isn't going to cut it.
i'ma be honest, i think that's kind of a cheap take. if those were 2 bad goals, he made up for them by stoning lias twice and JAD once at least right? wagner had a good chance and i think it was vilardi that whiffed on an open net back door? fleury is also the reason this wasn't a blowout..
minus the 2nd period officiating discrepancies, i think this was a very good game
VGK had scoring chances too. Cal was very solid. Difference in the game was Fleury gave up a couple softies and Petersen didn't.
I don't think it's cheap saying this, because it doesn't mean the Kings didn't play relatively well. Vegas was 14-2-1 at home coming into this game.
Vegas first goal was lucky as shit. Karlsson shot from almost below the goal line that was headed towards the benches redirects off of Petersen skate blade and in. That puck had no chance of going in on its own by its path.
So take away the Kings two soft goals and Vegas soft goal and the Kings still win.
You could say the same for Quick on Monday.
But the better team won each game.
Watching this on repeat.
He will have a hearing on April 12th with Lemieux.
aw man where's the 15 seconds after though, that was comedy
i really hate that hit to be honest and it's crept into the league lately, basically a slew foot but using the boards as leverage.. tough shit though. couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
Can’t overstate how important it was for the Kings to get that win last night in regulation against a team that is a playoff lock. They had to split the series with Vegas to stop falling out of the playoff race. But to pick up a win in the fashion they did has rekindled hope for all.
With Fleury’s lackluster performance, and another outstanding effort from Cal, Coach Todd had the team ready to go from the drop of the puck. He ended riding the veterans to preserve the win, which is understandable.
But he managed to get the first three goals from guys who all ended up playing 13 minutes or less. Vilardi played only 11 minutes, despite going 0/5 on the PP.
So let’s see what happens. If they sweep the back to back against the Sharks using the same game plan, maybe things turn around. But, it’s most likely we see two different performances.
F' that! Its only a 56 game season and you're shooting for the playoffs! We need to go for it...
I'd take Miller. I think he's still solid in net if a good D is in front of him. Plus, he wants to stay in socal...
I think we'll know if we're in the playoffs in these next 6.
But how does he improve our collection of Anders(s)on(-Dolan)s?
What? C'mon now.
it's just a dangerous hit, you get the guy off balance from the legs then pivot through the chest when their hips are pinned
i got no problem with the ole matt greene special where you just blast through the chest but he never did that on the boards, it was just a power move
Full length video (including the penalty Nosek should have received after the hit)
There were some good things from Andersson and Vilardi this game.
For the rest of the season, I think the best scenario for the Kings is Vilardi/Andersson really hitting their stride and scoring like top 6 forwards.
That would give me huge optimism going into next season, and honestly if it does happen, the Kings would probably make the playoffs, since 5v5 goalscoring is their one major weakness right now (currently 27th in the league).
Are you f***ing serious? Nosek didn't get a penalty after that? What the f***? God I hate the officials. Useless sack of shits.
3 games is good.
