LA KINGS POST GAME: JONATHAN QUICK STEALS ONE AGAINST FLYERS 1-0

You’ve read Surly use a few four letter words here and there…I got a three letter one for you.

Wow.

Wow to the pace of this Sunday matinée match against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Wow to the energy our boys showed on a back to back road game.

Wow to a second and third period that, with limited exceptions, saw waves of attack by Philly against the Kings’ net.

Wow to a team defense that, despite the onslaught, played a damn good game and kept some dangerous moments to the outside including a huge 5 on 3 kill that could have been the momentum changer.

Wow to Jonathan Quick. He stole these two points.

Did I enjoy seeing Terry Murray’s system in full effect this game? No. But it worked today through stellar goaltending.

So here the LA Kings sit, tied with Minnesota who is in 8th place with 65 points. Meanwhile, Dallas is in 3rd place with 68 points. 3 points. Crazy? Not yet. The Kings have a goal differential of +24 to date. That is tied with the second place in the conference Detroit Red Wings. Insane? There is more. There is a potential trade in the pipeline – emphasis on potential though don’t be surprised if we hear about it in the coming days assuming Dean, who has the ball, runs with it. Some of you will love it. Some of you may not. Who? What? We don’t do that, so I can’t tell you but it doesn’t mean we don’t love you. GO KINGS!

  1. Trade related to HnotH’s tweet about SJ and FLA? We need better than that,

  2. As long as we get better, I don’t care who it is.

    I agree, great effort today. Very proud of the boys.

    Best part of the season for me so far is the silence concerning Quick being pushed to the side for JB.

    I love Clifford. That kid is awesome.

    • Realizing this is a rumor out of left field…Booth could certainly benefit from a change in scene.

      Yes, it looks like we finally have a 1-2 punch in goal. Bernier found his game and Quick is getting the time needed to stay fresh. Clifford and Loktionov play(ed) well together. And, it appears Lewis is also starting to step up.

      I ponder if Sturm coming off this injury is a fit so late in this or any season

      • Doesn’t Booth have concussion issues? Just remembered that.

        Also, I forgot to give Kopi me due respect. Kopitar, the way you battled Pronger is exactly what I’m talking about when I say, “you have to ‘want’ to be the best.” That’s the “battle” I’m looking for from you. If you can do that on a consistent basis, I will start calling you a “star” and I’ll keep my mouth/fingers closed. Great job, son.

        I’m also wondering what will become of Sturm. Intriguing situation.

        Yes, Lokti is a natural. I believe in a couple years, he’ll be fighting for the number 1 center job. It doesn’t matter who #1 0r #2 are, but I believe he will be that good. What a gem for the later roungs(5th?).

        I also think Lewis is playing well. I feel for at least a month, he’s been playing outstanding. Only a matter of time before he starts putting up a few offensive numbers. I know I said that a few weeks ago, but I truly believe that.

  3. Awww come on! Dont leave us hanging!
