I don't see why the league couldn't review that type of play. If they can make the call on how fast a puck comes off a skate and pretend they know vectors and force (pendulum motion be damned!) surely they can make a call on who initiated contact and how the contact occurred and when it occurred. In this case: 1) Hansen got to the ice first and was not in the crease and Quick skated into Hansen 2) Hansen was pushed by the LA D-man and 3) contact occurred after the puck was past Quick therefore nothing impeded him in making the save.

No matter which way you slice it, it was a bad call.

Drew Doughty fucks up an easy pass to his forward but Dale Weise makes a killer pass springing Volpatti...

Whats wrong with this picture?

Doughty is still trying to get rid of his summer fat. Took him about 50 games last year.

Higgins is more skilled than I thought, Booth is less skilled than I thought.

So, why are the Kings slumping?

Doughty is a lazy piece of crap.

As is Penner.

Mike Richards is invisible.

They have no talent on their 3rd and 4th lines.

Side note, Quick is a player.

What you have is 2 twenty goal scorers....one on a hot streak that is feeling it and one that isn't. Good chance that 20 games from now things are reversed.

Maybe, but I think Higgins has better puck skills. But I get your point.

Why was Volpatti out in the last 2 minutes? Was there an icing call ?

God I hate when AV plays the trap to try to hold on 2 a 2 goal lead. Very very dum, almost cost them the game. Forecheck, forecheck wins games. Look when the fourth line finally got to play in LA's zone, Weiss pulls a penalty. AV needs to take the damn trap out of his playbook

You think so... Look at how he refuses to play his $4.2m defenseman on the powerplay... instead, Rome got to the pp icetime. So far two goals in two games and AV looks like a genius... Wait til he coughs up the puck against a better team, I can't wait to hear people complaining about that.

Boy, we have a new Masta Blasta from the point: Aaron Romeooooooooo! The dood should have got 2 goals tonite. :)

I guess Andrew Ebett is our new Tambellini?

Yeah, Higgy has really impressed me this year. I didn't think much of him when we first got him, even though he had some good moments during the playoffs; however, this year he has been consistently been one of our top forwards every nite. He's starting to remind me of Marty Gelinas, working hard every shift. Booth? Yeah, I dunno about him. He seems like a $2 mill player at best right now (equal to Higgy's lvl). Still early for him and hopefully he can get some bounces to get his confidence up a bit.

Read a Kings' fan preview of the game:

Kings lineup changes: Parse is out with a case of the Salos. Richardson is scratched, because duh…because…oh hell, there’s no reason. They could use his speed.

Trent Hunter joins the third line, while Colin Fraser will center Moreau and Lewis on the fourth. Maybe they assume that Canuck kryptonite is GRIT! I think it’s Timmy Thomas stopping 96.7% of shots in a series, but that’s me.

One request for the bottom six tonight: we don’t have to aim high, like shots or goals or anything. Just…don’t take penalties, guys. Can you all do that?

duh…

The Nucks scored 5 power play goals against the Blackhawks. Special teams better be ready tonight
