Fill In The Blank: Game 14 – feedback after Kings 3-1 win vs Oilers

It’s time for more input from the readers.

Tuesday night saw the Kings leave Edmonton with a much-needed two points. It was a tight game most of the way though, until Jeff Carter scored the game winning goal with less than a minute remaining in the third period.  And a few seconds later, Jarret Stoll added an empty net goal for good measure. LA out-shot Edmonton 38-24 and Jonathan Quick made 23 saves.

Post-game thoughts from Carter, Drew Doughty and Trevor Lewis be read here.

Following the game we asked people to complete the following:

“‘From a Kings perspective, the most encouraging aspect of the team’s 3-1 win in Edmonton was ________.” (FILL IN THE BLANK)

After scanning the feedback provided on twitter and facebook, here are the ten best answers…

@JordanKaylie1 – The defense stepped up to their speed, Quick had great saves & played well, physical game, and LA had good shots!

@rvp29 – Kings’ defense controlling the Oilers’ speedy children.

@ozunorocks – Quick’s rebound control and overall performance. #FILLINTHEBLANK

Jared D. – Quickie being strong and looking back in form between the pipes.

Marc N. – The Oilers started Khabibulin and not Dubnyk.

Caleb R. – The lack of a Yack celly.

Steve N. – Dustin Brown’s hit on Nugent-Hopkins

David S. – Doughty looked a lot better than he has since the season began.

Kevin R. – A 60 minute effort.

Kimbo S. – That LA closed out the game under pressure.

Jeff Carter scores another goal and Trevor Lewis had a two point night.  Still, no love? Interesting perspective from the readers this week.
