Every other Central team in action today lost (provided Toronto can hold on against Dallas)
Real nice battle by the boys. Needed the bounce back game.
Solid win. Score really favoured the kings, but they didn't sneak a point. 2nd line is gonna have nights like tonight. Frustrating, but worth it when they win a game for us.
Nice defensive win. I cannot believe how high scoring some games are this year in the league.
Did Roslovic line play the third? I think we tweak that line, but good overall effort
We really are becoming a bit of a 1 line offence. We just don't have anyone who can both play with Laine and keep up on the defensive side of the pucks with the quality of competition Laine see's. Little is just not that high end 2C anymore. He's looking more like a good 3C. Rosie just isn't ready for those matchups yet and Lowry is a two-way 3C whose just not a fit stylistically with Laine.
We are in an odd spot right now, where whoever plays with Scheif/Wheeler are likely to score. Everyone else is just treading water.
If they aren't goin to play that 4th line send Ves down. Loving the Tanev. Let dano play the 5 minutes a game what damage can he do?
Another one in the win column!
Campbell handled 37/39 and we still eked out a win. Not too shabby. Helle played well too.
Solid game from almost everyone. Thought Buff had a very good game. 4th line was also very good. Little with some nice passes, Ehlers using his speed to create a few good shot opportunities, Laine was good on the PP. 1st line was excellent along with the Lowry line.
I'd send Rosie in there with Laine and Ehlers. At least at home C-S-W and C-L-T are playing against the other team's top 2 lines.
Only could listen to the game on the radio..it sounded like Lowry had a heckuva game.....really looking forward to feedback from those who saw it live..thank you.
Some Kings are out of shape....
Nice win, now lets go beat those yellow mustard kitty cats at home...
Lowry line could be called 4th line but also the 2nd.
Laine still see's shutdown lines at times, typically the top D pairing too. Rosie could be worth a shot. Maybe when and if Vesalainen goes down. Which I think he should soon. Jets will probably give him 9 and then send him down.
Great win. I am rather concerned about Little. I know it’s early in the season but he just neutralises offense. If he could be an average 2C this year, that line up could be scary good.
Checkmate Kings...just hope John Agar isn't getting any funny ideas seeing this GIF
Not sure what's with the hand-wringing here. We just dominated a western conference playoff team, despite their goalie putting up great numbers.
Hand wringing is what this board is good at!
Like others have said Little and Wheeler should be tried for a few games for Wheeler may be the spark that can re-light Little...
Ehlers and Laine should not be on the same line probably Scheifele would even look bad with those two as linemates.
At some point Laine will have to start producing more offense on his own. C-S-W and C-L-T aren't being split up anytime soon. I'd still roll the dice on putting Rosie with Ehlers and Laine and try to give them as favorable matchups as you can.
