Both penalties were pretty soft.

But Doughty never dives.... lol.

Quick outplaying Luongo. I couldn't help but feel that if the Sedins were Canadian they'd draw more calls. I don't think any other superstars that get fewer calls. FFS Giroux takes a clean check and they throw the guy out. Mutts like Clifford take 3 second runs at an already-engaged player and it's a fair check.

Daryl Sutter hockey. Hit, hit, hit. Games like this where I wish we had a bit more toughness. Games like this where I wish Kassian would turn into a bull

I could care less if we win, just want to see Dustin Brown taken off the ice on a stretcher

Quick is always the difference, he's why they won the cup. One of the most valuable players in the game. Is Luongo your scapegoat?

These are the kind of games you wish Kassian would wake from his stupor

Fuck what a bullshit game, ya know its bad when Sestito is the teams best player thus far.

Can't match the LA Kings depth, skill, 4 lines of dominance.

The only player who seemingly knows how to hit like the Kings hit. He still never wins fights

Sestito should have made that hit on that King coming out from behind the net (didn't catch the #). Would've been a game changer. Maybe marginal or even a suspension but you can make a decent hit there without taking a guys head off. I don't like the feeling I get when I see us shying away from a hit like that ...

If this game's a goner then seeing how the players react and how much keep trying as a result of the 'Tortorella effect' should be interesting.

That King was Martinez, he seen Sestito coming in like a freight train so he fell down instead of getting smashed lol.

Jonathan Quick, one of the best goaltenders in the NHL. Also one of the luckiest. How many has he batted out of the air with his glove and had no clue where it is and we just can't get to the puck before a Kings defender clears it away.....or the attacking forward shovels it into his outstretched stick when the whole top of the net is available above Quick's sprawled self. I just hate him because he will be mediocre shit for a while and then out it together when Vancouver comes to town. But he really has been very sharp tonight, and some of this is just a pissed off rant. I have noticed that his puck tracking is much better through traffic.

Or defense just fell apart there and hung Lou out to dry. Our offense can't finish tonight.

The Kings are definitely a team that the Sedins have trouble against. They play hard and always seem to get bounces against us that go in our net while we can't score for shit.

This is definitely a game to forget.


Btw.....when has Healey ever been this generous to the Canucks? I can't believe that MacLean is just sitting there and letting him pump Vancouver's tires.
