Fill In The Blank: Game 19 – feedback from Kings loss in Vancouver

It’s time for a little input from the readers.

Saturday’s trip to Vancouver wasn’t as exciting for the Kings as their last visit, when Jarret Stoll scored an overtime / series-ending goal to kill the Canucks Stanley Cup dreams. This time around, they played see-saw hockey for the first 35 minutes before falling behind by a pair of goals scored by Daniel Sedin and Jannik Hansen late in the second period.  An empty net goal in the final minute of regulation made the final score 5-2, but it was only academic at that point. LA was never really in the game in the third period.

So, earlier today we asked people to complete this statement:

”The lasting memory from the Kings loss in Vancouver was _______.’

Now, after scanning the feedback provided on twitter and facebook, here are the five best answers…

Matthew W. – Stoll smiling after his penalties.

Toby H. – Soft goals and shoddy defense.

Bill D. – It just get’s old watching teams push the Kings out or they get boxed out. Last night, Brownie needed to hit the Sedin Sisters and nothing happened. They started out great, had some great (stretches), but still allowed a lesser team to push them around and keep them from scoring more.

@rvp29 – 3-on-1 and Kings failing to stop the scoring chance. And Jordan Nolan’s quick thinking on Schneider’s puck fumble.

@EvaMarieAlonzo – None…pretty much forgot about the whole thing already.

That last one must come from a coach Sutter disciple. Park and ride baby, park and ride.
