Fill In The Blank: Game 15 – feedback after Kings 3-1 win vs Flames

It’s time for more input from the readers.

Wednesday night saw the Kings pick up their second 3-1 win in a row – on back-to-back nights in Alberta no less – probably leaving Darryl Sutter to rethink his whole ‘It’s a 3-2 league’ mantra.  Or not.

Jeff Carter continued to show why he’s been the Kings’ best forward all year long, notching yet another goal.  Dustin Brown started the scoring with a beautiful conversion of a pass from Anze Kopitar and  Trevor Lewis – who had talked about wanting to score to help his confidence – had the other marker of the night. Jonathan Quick served as back-up for the Kings, allowing Jonathan Bernier to record his third win in a row.

Following the game we asked people to complete the following:

‘The key reason the Kings defeated the Flames was ________.’ (FILL IN THE BLANK)

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

@HashtagSacco – The forwards carrying the play and not allowing the young defensemen to get exploited.

@RobSwift424 – Possession time in the offensive zone over & over again. Time on the attack was ridiculous and constant. Game could have been 7-1.

@DanFagerhaug – JMFC

Jared D. – Consistency on back to back nights. Nitty gritty plays and accepting the fact that the goals don’t have to be pretty.

Caleb R. – Bernier. Big Saves. Period.

Jeremy M. – FORECHECK

Ryan P. – They are finally clicking, working hard, winning the battles down low, Sutter could flip a coin and start either goalie and get a Conn Smythe winning performance out of either of them right now. Plus the Flames played like absolute crap.

Trevor C. – Pretty passing, decent puck handling, that “gritty” pressure we so love to watch, and Bernier standing square in net consistently. And let’s not forget Scuderi borrowing Mitchell’s “illegally” long hockey stick. Impressive hockey play by our beloved champions.

Bob T. – Scored in the first period, twice.

John L. – Trevor Lewis drank 5 red bulls before the game

…and a bonus entry:

Tom B. – ‘We put more pucks behind their goaltender’ (In my Sutter voice)

  1. Key reason: Urgency, zero hesitation. They played that 3rd like they were down a goal. Still think our D (#8) can speed the game up from the back end. Dewy is kinda flip flopped, he’s speeding the game up in his D zone and slowing it down in the neutral and offensive zones.
