• Deep Inside the Kings: You Had Me at Push
Beaten in every way that matters to the point of now, with your backs up against the wall, you have nothing to take away from that game but shame. You can’t go back home saying how you hung in there despite the lopsided loss. You can’t take anything positive away.

The power play was bad, turning in a 1 for 5 performance and failing to convert on even a 5 on 3 chance. The stars weren’t stars, the grinders didn’t grind and the goalkeepers didn’t keep goal. It was a failure on all fronts.

Positives: Modin, the 5 on 4 Power Play, Frolov is a free agent, that I had a full bottle of Highland Park 17 year old, Jon Bernier will be wearing an L.A. Kings uniform next season. Some Vancouver fan is going to shoot his mouth off Sunday and wind up without his teeth. Volchenkov is a free agent.
