    MVP: definitely not taking Quicker for granted, but in a series filled with great goaltending, the C was an even bigger game changer. Dustin Brown!

    3-stars: Big props to Pickles, he was tremendous. Same with Anze and Wiliiams. But with 2 GWGs, including the series OT clincher, 58.3% at the faceoff dot, and a +1, I’m taking #OhStrollsy, Jarrett Stoll!

    GKG! Great night to be a Kings’ fan!

    • riccweee says:

      I agree on this one man, Quick did play Amazing, and we wouldn’t have got here without him, but he can’t score goals for us, and apparently barely any other King other than Brown can either, so Brown MVP, he carried that team by hard ass work(checking like a madman) and scoring BIG BIG Goals. thank you for being a grade A Captain D Brown, you are a bigger man in my eyes since feb. this year. Keep at it!!

  2. Quick, but Brown comes in a close second …

  3. Iceman91321 says:

    Terry Murray got us on the right track defensively and Quick is reaping the benefits. Quick is very good, but it’s the system that makes him great. Watching Bryzgalov ecxel with Phoenix and now struggle with Philly makes me appreciate a solid defensive system. If Quick leaves he’ll just be a high paid Cam Ward, 7M per year .915SV 2.74 GAA and struggling to make the playoffs.

  4. KingsOfLA says:

    1) Brown – Kind of like how we used to come out and put the first shot high and hard right past the goalie’s ear, Brown and Richards REALLY came out and let Van know that the LA Kings were ready to play and it wasn’t going to be fun and easy. I think this is what mainly got in Van’s collective head and after that first win planted a huge seed of doubt. His shorthanded goals were also HUGE in more ways than just on the scoreboard, not just for what they did to Van, but also LA… Brown literally did it ALL!!!

    2) Quick – (eat it poorman) enough said :)

    3) Richards – Mike Richards does so many things that the casual hockey fan would never notice, it’s ridiculous! He has the kind of smarts that when the opportunity isn’t that great to do something, knowing it’s not going to result in a goal NOW, but later when “they’re” looking for the same thing all of a sudden BAM… He set it up a while ago, on purpose, knowing what’s coming later… (hard to explain, sorry!)

    Honorable Mention- Darryl Sutter – After game 1, one thing became very clear… Van may be built for 82-games, but the Kings are built for the playoffs (ala Mike Richards)!!! Nothing against Terry Murray, but this is a VERY different team with Sutter at the controls.

    HUGE congratulations to Willie Mitchell – I know that wasn’t his ultimate goal, but you know that had to feel damn good :)

    Only 12-wins to go…

  5. Doughty99 says:

    After looking at Pickle’s #s in this series, I have no problem with anyone picking he’s the 3rd star. In fact, I’d pick him as star “3b”: 25 1/2 min per game, against one of the top scoring teams in the league, and he’s a +3.

    As if his defensive contributions weren’t enough, he also had 1G & 1A. He’s getting big mins on the PP, he’s the the lynch-pin of the PK (minus Quick, of course), and he’s a rock of stability for Slava, who has seemed rattled at times. While I give still give the edge to #OhStrollsy, Pickle’s has been playing like a man possessed.

  6. i said Brown, Quick, Lewis. Lewis only because the forecheck led ti tons of turnovers, including the series winner.
