i have NO idea where all those asterisks came from but i'm not going to go through and take them all out. juts ignore 'em
-Kings fans hoping for a violent game.*
This would be such a great game to win.
-Classy queens fans already saying they want Stoll to get Fowler again.....
Love those guys over there! Rooting for injuries. Awesome.
Oh and F U Stoll.
(you gotta throw that in there)
re: doughty quote “i think all of us in here feel for sure that we're a better team than them”
-U mad Doty?
-We're going to win.
-Good, now let's beat them.
-LOL @ Doty
Hopefully Staubitz is in the lineup tonight. We'll need to be tougher against a team like the queens
-Usually I just want to see an entertaining game, but really Doughty? Seriously?
Kick them in the nuts, Ducks! Do whatever it takes, just beat them in a blowout. And then lick Doughty's sweet tears of sorrow at seeing the Kings not make the PO's.
-that's really cocky of dd to say that about the Ducks. I hope we beat them tonight and put stoll on IR.*
-I'm surprised Doughty was able to get a few words out between cheeseburgers.*
-Screw Doughty and his cocky comments. Talk about full of yourself. Screw Stoll that little weasel, I want to see some LA pain tonight!*
-Ok, I want some honest answers here. If the roles were reversed, wouldnt you be begging for one the Ducks to come out and say something like this?? Call it cocky, call it classless, but its supposed to be a rivalry.
For me, I dig it. It gets the rivalry hyped and hopefully gets some emotions going. I have always thought the Ducks have backed off the trash talk and rivalry issue too much.
I want to see elevated emotions, trash talk, grit and passion. I want it to get dirty, I want blood. THAT is a rivalry. Simply being down the 5 Freeway, isnt a rivalry.*
-The Ducks will need to actually start this one on time. I'm hoping that the Kings return to form is actually nothing more than them having played the dregs of the conference.*
-I think this will be a tough game. The Kings have been pretty good lately. This isn't a game I think the Ducks can go down 0-2 and come back to win. They have got to stop crapping the bed in the 1st.
-Should be a good game, kings are starting to play good and the ducks are on the back end of b2b.
-Dress Staubitz to jump someone.
-Funny. You guys are bashing Kings fans for wanting our guys to get injured and at the same time saying "dress Staubitz so he can jump someone."
1. Stoll initiated it, we are in a retaliatory position
2. Stoll threw a cheap shot resulting in a concussion to our best defenseman
3. The league decided not to police the situation
So now the team must police it on the ice.
-And that makes it less hypocritical? Yea... no.*
Stoll made a stupid play that resulted in an injury. Get over it. The best thing the Ducks could do is go out there and win the game. You want to get even? Do it on the scoreboard.
-Beauchemin on LA: "They're always hard to play against.*They're a talented team, and it's going to be another one of those big battles."
Selanne on LA: "It will be a good matchup. We won the first one, and they weren't at the top of their game yet.*It will be a good test."
Doughty on the Ducks "To see them up there, a team in our division, a team that*I think all of us in here feel for sure that we're a better team than them, that kind of makes us frustrated and not happy with the way our season's gone so far,"
Keep it classy LA.
-Challenging stoll to a fight does/means absolutely nothing.*
Just like when they played the Blues during the play-offs, and had their scrub dwight king run Alex Pietrangelo, what exactly was served by challenging king to a fight?? AP was still injured, and losing king for 5 doesn't hurt their team one iota.*
Maybe you'd like to see Fowler run again, just to get a power play, score, and win the game...but I'd rather we ice some people that put the fear of God into the other team, and make them think twice about throwing ANY heavy hits, especially with how great our PP has been.
-Sadly, I don't think we have the players to do that anymore, the Kings are a tougher and bigger team than us ATM. A Beleskey - Stoll fight is propably what's gonna happen.
-And a Beleskey/stoll fight basically gives their team the green light to do the same thing over and over until the League says enough...you get to sit for 1 game. We were lucky Fowler wasn't hurt worse. Next time we may not be so lucky. And if being beat on by huge, hulking Beleskey is all the punishment that they have to fear, it WILL happen again.
-It'll be interesting to see if Stoll has the class to accept a challenge from Maroon (I'd prefer Beleskey stays on the ice the way he's been playing).*
It'll also be interesting to see if the PP is as effective against the Kings as it was in the last game.
-I just hope we beat the hell out of them both physically and on the scoreboard.
-Yeah if we actually dressed both Maroon and Staubitz we'd be on par with most Western teams in toughness department.
-Who is it that you are afraid of on the Kings?
-Kings of they are on their game have an ability to take advantage of softer teams
As we've seen
-As we've seen? I haven't seen that at all, this season or last. I've seen*Boston*do that.
-Dude, they are a physical team. No doubt. They might not have the biggest and baddest fighters, but they wouldn't have won that cup if they weren't physical.
-I didn't say that they weren't a physical team. I'm saying that they do a **** job of parlaying that into dominant hockey. Boston does it. I've never seen the Kings get into another team's heads like that team does.
-St. louis*and Phoenix say hi.
-They beat those teams, but not because they BEAT(punchy/hitty) those teams.
-Agreed. A reasonable argument can be made that they trivialized the St. Louis series by the cheap shot on Pietrangelo though
-That's fair, though I think the wheels were coming off the Blues wagon before that incident.
-That Cheapshot changed the series. The Blues had just won a hard fought series( literally ), and had lost their #1 goalie to injury. AP was their best D-man, and was showing the ability to become the game changer St. Louis hopes he will be. Having a pos scrub "accidently" run him from behind, knocking him out for a couple of*games, seems to be right out of their "game plan playbook".
-Lol, who said I was afraid? They're a big bruising team who like to hit and grind it out and we are not, that's all I'm saying. Plus they have a few guys who can handle themselves in a fight (Clifford, Nolan). Overall they're tougher than us.
-Man these Ducks/Kings*games*get everyone all riled up!
I hope its an exciting/fun/physical game and the Ducks come out on top. If their fans want to act like the classless bunch a lot of them are and say they should take out the Ducks or Stoll should hit Fowler again then so be it. That is their style. Always has been always will be.
-Kings are a very physical team, but it is not like they have 2-3 Thornton type players out there. We have as much size as they do, finish our checks, and as many guys who will drop them if need be. We play a bit more speed, forechecking game now, and they are a grind it out team (like old Carlyle)
It should be a great game. I am calling 2-1 (hopefully Ducks).
Even if Staubitz is not in there, you will see Stoll fight someone....at least someone will probably try. My guess is it is either Winnick or Beleskey. Outside chance Maroon.
-Can't wait to see all those Oscar worthy dives/embellishments from the Queens.
-Kings are missing 3 starters on D still and Ellerby is coming back down to earth... Doughty still has zero goals lol at his comments...
What else.... Ohh ya they've been beating pure trash teams, Colorado, cbj, edm, Calgary.... All off the stick of Carter who has goals in 5-6 straight games...
Tonight will be in the hands of the refs as usual... Kopitar has yet to find his stride and let's hope it stays that way......
Tonight would be a good test for Lovejoy..I wouldn't mind sitting fowler, back to back games against the kings is a little much to ask of the kid coming off a concussion*
Go ducks and go bobby ry
-ya. this is a game where i want our big d-men available. allen can sit another night. we need his 6'5 frame tonight.
-Really excited for this game. Glad the Ducks found their legs in the 3rd last night. Hopefully they'll bring that intensity from the get-go tonight.
-Can't wait to see the NHL headline "Quick, but not Fasth enough." 9-0 baby, Vezina.
-What's the over/under on minutes into the game before a king takes a flop?
-This is the identical to the over/under on how long it takes for the first Duck to make contact with a King.
-Wow can't wait for this one. Win or lose I hope Stoll is dealt with. If the leauge cannot deal out the punishment, someone needs too. I bet this one will be ugly in a good way.*
-Skate HARD, Play SMART.
Time to end the kings little win streak.
-Kings will win. The Ducks are due for a loss and the Kings want to rub the Cup in the Ducks' faces.Can they at least get a point tonight? Quick will probably return to form, might even get a SO.*
-Really want to win this one...I'm not too confident though.*
-Very nervous about tonights game.**And I sincerely hope no one takes a run at Stoll.**Just check him every time you can get to him and wear him down.
This game could go either way, both teams playing well as of late.
Anybody read Doughty's comments in the paper today, how the Kings are the better team of the two.?**Just one more reason to not like that guy.*
Come on boys, show him who the elite team is tonight.**
-I don't care about retaliation, unless it's just winning the game.
-The LA Kings.. Homewrecking olympic divers with an affinity for heavily-syruped pancakes and taking advantage of drunk chicks.. Their head coach is a muppet and their star goalie has a profound Eminem complex. Jim Fox and Willie Mitchell. Need I say more?
-Yeah, Getz! Start the hitting early.
-koivu selanne winnik.. wtf lol
-Does Boudreau just pull names out of a hat?
-Clifford starting to acquire some zombieish traits
-Maybe Kopitar bit him.
-Like the early physicality
-Thanks for the jinx Hazy
-Can't let pancakes score!
-Dmen are not doing a good job making passes. Kings are forechecking well.
-Pretty physical so far.
-Looks like they are lost out there. Almost like they don't know what to do when they get the puck. Bad start yet again.
-I disagree. I think they are bringing the play to the Kings physically and with speed. We are going to wear them down and get some chances later in the game.
-I don't think they look bad. A couple of mistakes, and some sloppy passes, but I like the physical play.
-Kings forechecking hard so far.
-Ducks are playing with fire with these late hits.
-im LOVING this physicality. loving staubitz
-That sure looked like Clifford targeted Cogliano's head
-Kind of high with the elbow by Clifford.*
-I saw high elbows by Clifford. Kinda want him destroyed... again.*
-Kings really clog up the middle.
-Blatant interference by Doughty. Yay.*
-I rest my case. They don't know what to do when they get the puck.
Look at the amount of turnovers they have committed.
-can we get rid of the fowler-allen pairing FFS they are absolutely HORRIBLE together.. allen doesn't like getting the fowler hte puck for some reason.. just stop putting them together
-Well, the bad period is out of the way.
-Sutter needs to*retire. This is just gross.
-I'm going to take up a collection for one of those*toddler*leashes to attach to our goal and whoever is in net.*
-Id go with one of those dog zappers instead.
-Good thing the kings set the record for offsides that period.*
They drop all of their players to the middle of the ice in the defensive zone and lack a offensive speedy breakout... And they wonder why their not a high scoring team
-BTW, the Kings Twitter the other day announced 50% off tickets. Half price tickets means half the bandwagon was gone before their 3 game winning streak! I guess L.A. had enough of hockey!*
-Both teams are a tasty rebound away from a goal.*
-Well that period seemed to go by fast.**The guys must be gassed, all that back & forth.**Hope they save something for the 3rd.*
-Tight game, Kings forecheck was relentless.**If they keep this up, I'm worried the Ducks will be out of gas by the third.*
-Daryl Sutter really doesn't give a crap about offense.
-Bitter beer face's teams sure play a boring style of hockey.
second period, cogliano scores:
-Now the game starts.
-woo woo cogs
-Heeel yeah. Way to break that allowing the first goal streak.
-Let's go!!! Bury these *****es!
-Goodness, what a start to the period.*
-Should we be worried that we scored first?*
-Who needs to play 3 periods when you can win playing just 2! Lol
-Kings have some pretty good between play videos at Staples.
-Nolan by decision.
-Isn't this what we got Staubitz for?*
-Souray just took one helluva beating. Makes Belesky look like a fighting champ.*
-POOR DECISION TO FIGHT THERE MAN*
-**** Souray wtf was that
-i dont want to see souray fighting.. we know how brittle he is..
-Don't break anything Souray. I love him though.
-dont like that trade off
-Please don't be injured
-Edge to Nolan, tough kid. I don't like that trade off, Nolan for Souray but way to step up big dog.
-Bah. Nolan's a nothing*player, not worth fighting.
-Of all people, we let Jemima score?*
-Dumb by Souray. Kings will take that trade off everyday of the week, and being down 1-0 they'll gladly fight. Dumb dumb dumb. And the kings score. Great.*
-My god that was soft
-That's on Beauch. How do you let Penner get behind you.
-F ing pancakes.....no call on Stoll then they score....thanks.
-Of*course*****ing Stoll. Gets away with obst. too ****
-Nice*to see the Queens get away with everything as usual
-F u zebras.
-Stoll is a piece of ****.
-Wow. Stoll got away with another one.
-Stolls a piece of s*! Dumb interference*
-a freaking pick on the blue line that isnt called
-Bah. Penner's a nothing*player. Not worth allowing a goal to.
-Koivu went down pretty*easy*on that one. I'm putting that goal on us, not the zebras.
-The contact from stoll seemed marginal. Koivu was skating back into him
that really stupid call on dustin brown:
-I figured as long as the kings were down, they wouldn't have a penalty call on them.
Good....PP Ducks.....TAKE THE LEAD!*
-Brown you dirt bag!*
-Yeah, get momentum back NOW!*
-Stoopid Brown...sounds dumb to me when he talks...sort of an odd guy.*
-PP. make it count.
-Holy crap a penalty.
-That's a weak call on Brown.
-That seems like a terrible call
-They look really out of sync.
-Oh my....I don't think I have seen a PP this bad by the Ducks in a LONGGGG time.
-We get a gift call and our PP disappears. =/
-Wow. Talk about a broken play. I'll take it.
-Such an ugly goal on a horrible PP, but we will take it!
-My god. Ryan missed a gimme. Saku saves the day!
-That's why it's two minutes, fellas!
-There it is boys...no panic.
-HOW DID WE CAPITALIZE ON SUCH A BAD POWERPLAY? AAAAAAAA SAKU I LOVE YOU*
-thats a big FU to stoll and the queens!!!*
-Nice pass scuderi.
-That was a nice pass by Scuderi on Koivu's goal.*
-(HAHAHAHAHAHAHA): Uh oh, Scuderios.
-Wow, can't believe that pp came through
-What a play from Beauch. Dude does everything. Get the man his Norris.
-LOL @ Jim Fox trying to say that shouldn't have been a penalty, pretty obvious slew foot bruh
delay of game call on voynov:
-ducks PP...get another one
-That is kind of ****** for Voynov, but I guess it is a penalty.
-Haha, that sucks.
-Oh man, that was it too. Ding.
-quick*is soo lucky
-This PP looks so much better yet no goal.
-Damn, Quick been pretty good last few minutes, could of had a couple
-Ducks look realllllllllllll goooood
-Keep up this play! We're getting close out there!*
-Quick putting the team on his back, again.*
-It's been an excellent period, of*course.
-Maroon line v zombie line is not good for us.
dustin brown with another big goal:
-God, he always scores on us
-Crap.....ducks out play them then and the diving little pansy scores.
-Argh, that's a killer. Totally undeserved as well
-Oooohhh... Not a good one.
-And a "WTH" at Brown's goal? It backpedaled in.*
-I HATE DUSTIN BROWN
I hope he takes a Souray slap shot to the face.*
-Come on fasth, that's Hiller like.
-And King fans want to talk about puck luck. My gosh. Keep grinding. We are dominating and will get ours.
-That coulda gone better
-That was a great shot. Too bad, Dustin Brown is a horrible human being.
-All Fasth fans would be calling for Hiller's head after both those goals. Funny how that works. Lol
-Jim Fox says "gap control" every other sentence.
-Kings mascot punching a toy duck in the back of the head, guess those idiots don't remember Bertuzzi
-They have attendants who open a door for you to go to the locker room at Staples? Jesus christ
-Once again, we're the better team here. Just need to keep plugging. Playing the Kings is a chore.
-It was a perfect shot. that being said, fasth maybe should of been out farther in his crease
-I don't think it was a screen. It looked like Fasth should have been able to see the puck fine.
-Yeah maybe. I just think it was a super*quick*release and a perfect shot.*
Don't know how many goalies in the league that would have saved it, maybe the tallest ones with their shoulders.
-Score notwithstanding, that was a good period. If they can play like that in the 3rd, they can come out with the win.
-Time to close it out. I have a feeling we'll need to kill a couple penalties in the third.
-Glad to see no one has mentioned scuderi going knee on knee with Perry. lol
typical queens play
third period, starting with hooking call on king:
-come on ducks....get one here
-oh ryan.. you diver
dont turn into dustin brown please
-Dustin Brown in a Ducks uniform.*
Not cool Bobby.
-Need to convert because this'll be our last one.
-boobie learns from ******** brown. Oh shut the **** up you whiny *****.*
bobby is weak on his skates...sound familiar?
doughty's hit on beauchemin that completely changed momentum:
-Franky got rocked.
-Beauchemin just got killed*
-Good thing beauchemin is made of rock.*
-F the kings.......WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
-Well, that sucked
-LOL bye bye Ducks
-This is going to be close... it's a goal.
-Thats terrible Fasth.
-First time Kopitar has even had his name mentioned.
Bad one to give up there
-Hope the boys can fight back.
-Looks like the Kings are starting to pull away. It started towards the end of the 2nd and now they are taking it to us. Ducks have given it a good effort, but it looks like it might be too much. We'll see, but I'll be surprised if Anaheim can muster up enough to comeback.*
-I really do not want to lose to the Kings.*
-If the Kings win this Quick should be Star 1, 2 and 3.
souray goes for slashing:
-Holy crap! King just dropped the stick and got the call!*
-and a ducks PK....
-This feels like a loss coming on
-We're in trouble here. I can't see us getting a point here
-This is going to be tough to win now. Just couldn't bury our chances
-rough.*quick*looks good and our guys are starting to look tired.. lets see if they can dig deep to get another..
-Kings have choked a few games away late... And if you've watched the ducks this year, it ain't over.
Ok it's over
-Yup. That's going to be it.
-That's*the game. Put in Hiller.
-Falling apart. Sucks cause Muzzin is not really a old NHL player.
-Yeah, it's a loss.
-Hmmm. I guess Drew Doughty was right.
-Guess winning*the game*matters more than sending a mess.....oops.
-Ouch, that's that.
-sucks that our streak has to end to the kings.. ffs
-Goalie was outplayed tonight, and they haven't missed a chance.
-Unbelievable. We should have like a 2 goal lead by now but instead we are down by 2. The Queens are such a lucky mediocre team.
-ducks are done. Lol
-Oh, man, this is a proper 2012 meltdown.
-Here we go lol
-On to Weds. This was a tough one from the start.
-Time to send out Staubitz to wreck someone. Were not winning this one.
-at least take stoll out for crying out loud.*
-Watching the rest of this game on mute
These bandwagon fans will be unbearable now*
-Ducks lose. Ridiculous. Only 1 PK and they get scored on.*
-Ducks look tired all of a sudden.
-i bet buck 50 that Ducks win*
-We're just getting toyed with out there.*
-Ducks need to stop getting bullied here.*
-Kings have absolutely dominated since the hit on Beauchemin. The Ducks desperately need a strong shift following this penalty kill. Shorty wouldn't hurt either...
-man, it's one thing to get beat on the scoreboard... but we're a bunch of ******* out there.
-That looks nasty for Souray
-Kopitar has gotten way too much room all night.
-worst period i've seen by the ducks this entire season.. bleh
-I'm a big Fowler fan but damn he is soft as a player , Neids had a touch of snarl
-Lack of energy pretty apparent at the end. I'm with dirk here though, would like to see them start taking runs with*the game*pretty much over now. Remember Pronger and hanzus?
-Oh well. On to the*Nashville*game.
-This one is likely done. Ducks have been outclassed since the end of the 2nd.*
-Can we all agree this is the appropriate time to goon it up?*
-Worst period of hockey I have seen all season.*
-So why do the Kings always get the benefit of an ANA team on the second of back to backs?*
-Not to mention they have a softer schedule in March, when we get our arses handed to us. Cup champs getting lots of love.*
i had been wondering if carter would get a goal:
-Ohhhh carter streak continues
-Meh we were due for a loss
-i dont know who is a bigger d-bag carter or brown
doughy was right
-I guess that's a moral victory
-How so? We were outworked the whole night.
-Couldn't pull away in the second, couldn't convert on the PP in the third. The game was on their sticks a bunch of times, but it didn't happen for them.
The Kings played 10 dominant minutes of Sutter hockey and it was all they needed. Too bad.
-Can't win them all...Kings played a solid game.
-embarrassing display by BB no message sending hell did he even throw Staubitz in the 3rd? LA outhit the Ducks and sent more messages even when they were winning but towards the end of the game there had to be someone going after Stoll or a Kings star in response.
-What a terrible, terrible game. That was so depressing.*
-Got to tip your hat to Quick....he was really good for the Kings when they needed him to be.*
-You have to be prepared for all game aspects including a physical game against a rival. They all cant be against soft teams like Nashville and Detroit or bottom dwellers like Colorado and*Columbus.
LA Kings have toughness and skill the Ducks can only match their skill somewhat
-I would disagree, we were by far the better team in the 2nd and really goaltending was the biggest difference till half way through the 3rd
-S* I really hate the Kings.
Calls didn't go our way, but we had plenty of chances with Quick just absolutely clueless around his crease.
Every winning streak must come to an end, start a new one on Wednesday.*
-kings outplayed this team
-I don't know how the Kings accumulated all this big guys who can skate. Pretty much, they were the much more physical team and we didn't have the manpower to match their size. I am not sure many teams in the league can handle that size. Can't blame the effort today. The boys played hard from the beginning. After the Kings took the lead,*the game*was over. They just clogged up the middle and protected the net. Oh well. You can't win them all.
-They're filled with guys who are either very big, or very bulldog-like.... Carter, Kopitar, Brown, Richards, Penner, King, Nolan, Clifford, etc. are all guys who are hard to play against, physically.
-Ya, can't expect to beat them physically... Just not happening...
Souray's an idiot for starting that fight... Penner goal is on him
