It's very obvious that the Kings are much better at handling the puck on such bad ice. Obviously they are used to it being their barn.

And Dorsett hurts himself trying to throw a big hit.

Just remember everyone, a four goal lead is the toughest to defend. They have the Kings right were they want them...

This is not only a test for the players. This is WillieD and the new coaches first test.

This is the first team we've played that knows exactly how to shutdown the Sedins and nullify their powerplay.

Hughson (or Simpson?) even commented on the fact that Quick stopped Vrbata and didn't even move, he was already over and set when Vrbata got the pass and let it go. VERY PREDICTABLE attack.

LA plays a defensive system that is DESIGNED to disrupt a cycle. It's a thing of beauty. The Sedins need to move the puck faster and look for longer passes that make the defense shift from one side of the ice to the other.

Men against boys . Canucks look like elves out there . I'm sure if Kassian was in it would be 6 - 0 already because he is a useless tit . Am I doing it right ???? Some bad breaks but you need size when your team is this fucking slow .

Yeah wake up Meds it ain't just the twins LA is figuring out how to nullify .They have have bitchslapped the whole team .

Tyler Toffoli is a RFA in 2015 as well with Pearson, TT should get Johansen's $4M per easily or he should fire his agent.

After all he's the LA Kings leading scorer at the moment and the 24th top scorer in the entire NHL.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Matthias has been one of the better Canucks tonight but that didn't say much. Once Kassian is back, a line of Matthias/Horvat/Kassian would be pretty good.

The Canucks speed or lack thereof is exposed against teams like the Kings. It's like the Kjngs are our kryptonite.

Skyo must be on the firewater if he thinks Toffili gets Johansen money
