That pass from Anze last night was so sickkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!! I remember he did it last year to Dustin Brown for a goal. Kings looked good after that ridic road trip! Cant wait until we get Doughty, Penner and Co healthy.
Yes, loved that pass, the one to Brown last year was higher and farther, but last nights was great. What I'm seeing is Anze has the pressure off as far as being the number one guy and he has being playing more freely, points in every game, this team could be GREAT and I'm looking forward to it. Five players with two points or more last night, that's huge and going to make it harder for teams to focus on just Anze and Brown.
Just watched the replays, that was a helluva pass and great patience by Gagne to wait out the goaltender. Just watching some of the replays, I completely agree that Kopi looks more relaxed out there. This looks like it could be a fun year!!!
Right now, Quick is better than last year. He is handling the puck much better and not doing things than can give you a heart attack. He has made it to 100 wins faster than any Kings goalie ever has and by a long shot. Quick did it in 185 games, Hrudey in 228, Vachon in 230 and Quick did it only as a King. Nice pass from Richards to Brown for the 1st goal and a great pass and play from Westgrath to Clifford on a 4 on 2 break away for the 2nd goal.
Make that back to back to back shutouts!!! Glad to see one of my teams do well. It has been a brutal sports season with Dodgers sucking, St Louis Rams now 0-6, Notre Dame underachieving, and Lake Show probably wont even have a season this year. Need a Stanley Cup run out of these guys to keep me from going insane.
Great start to the season, especially for Quick and the defense. One thing I didn't know until just recently was that Ethan Moreau was captain of the Oilers. That means we have Brown as captain and Richards and Moreau who were recently captain of another team. That can be a huge plus that doesn't show up on the stat sheet!
I don't know if something was said during the game, but is there a reason why Terry Murray decided to go with Bernier when Quick has had three straight shutouts? I understand giving Bernier some ice time but why now? Frustrating!!!
Man what a ****** situation for Bernier to come into... the guy ahead of you just posted three consecutive bagels, you started the only loss of the season, and you have to come in and try to match that. It was a lose/lose situation for him. Hate to second guess people, but I think if I was Terry I would have stayed with Quick this early in the season and kept the momentum rolling. That way so much pressure wasn't on Bernier!
