    Default Mike Richards is really struggling

    Richards has made poor plays to cost the Kings two straight game winning goals. Sutter clearly put the blame on him for the Nashville goal when he lost his man in the last 30 seconds and he failed to control the puck on the only goal tonight.

    Some of it is bad timing as he's not the only one making mistakes but his mistakes are leading to huge goals against.

    Richards has to find a way to be more responsible defensively.

    and if Brown could score on a penalty shot, that would have taken some of the heat off of MR.

    Yeah, offensively Richards' fortunes will be tied to the one game in five that Toffoli is dialed in. The kid's board work is just as intermittent.

    But Gretz is right, Richards has been a half second off on two key goals lately. No one player ever costs a team a game in hockey, its a 60 minute battle. Tonights goal was a result of three poor plays. Muzzin's unsupported pinch, Brown going for a big hit instead of trying to seal off the pass, then Richards looking to see where he should put the puck before he had it. Richards gets the goat label because he was the point of impact error, but if any of those three makes the proper play, that goal never hspoebs.

    Same as the last game. If Doughty recognizes that Richards is s step behind.just a half second earlier, that game may have ended differently.

    That being said, Richards has needs to step it up a bit.

    He did create a couple of nice chances too. If either of those buried... we could play "what if" all night. Just have to deal with what did happen, not what could have happened.

    I started a thread a couple weeks ago saying Richards seemed like the odd man out in the new line schemes. I'd like to see him and Stoll swapped in the current top 9.

    He's been absolute crap lately, and isn't doing ANYTHING on the offensive end either.

    Oh wait, so is Stoll, Brown, Lewis, etc etc....

    In fact the only time I hear Stoll's name lately is when he's taking his usual DUMBASS penalty.
