it's always nice beating the canucks.
i am not quoting all of it, but the theme of their GDT was dustin brown's lisp.
-Will Duthtin Penner eat hith way out of the IHOP in time for the game?
-Making fun of Dave Taylor is just plain thilly.
-Yeth I realithe.*Forgot the I gueth. I was just pointing out that back in the day Taylor had a pretty strong lithp. He actually went to a speech therapitht and eventually lotht it.
-Duthin Brown doesn't care about a lithp. He's got a ring.
-God, we played horrible against the Sharks.
I hope we can have a good rebound game. LUUUUUUU!!!
-I'm just hoping our star players come to play, even though we hit 5 posts, the Sedins we're terrible along with our Top-4 defense.
-Thankfully this pre-game thread is up so I can act like the SJ game never happened.
-Who's the next California player to suffer a meltdown at the hands of the Canucks?
-We should make a tantrum against Nucks tracker. Perry and Clowe have been victims so far.
-My money's on Doughty tomorrow night.
-God I hope so...ultimate punk!
-But then again maybe Kopitar????
-A Kopitar meltdown would be a huge accomplishment.*
-You're right...you know how hard it is to piss off a Zombie?
-Just a reminder before the Canucks hit the ice tomorrow: bad things will happen when you blindly pass the puck in front of your own net.
-They know not to pass pucks up the middle blindly, they don't know not to throw it up the middle while*looking, is all.
-5-3 Canucks, in another emotional game... goals by:
Kings will be irritated by the antics of players such as Burrows and will play better hockey after tomorrow night's game...
-This is the battle of which team can underachieve more.
-For this game, the Kings are giving out replica Cup rings to their fans.
-Kings are not a fast team..........take advantage and attack
-Leth hope Anthe Kopitar doethnt burn uth on defenth, Alexth Edler and Dan Hamhuith haven't been playing well.
On the upthide, Chrith Tanev hath been thtupendouth tho far.
-Embrace the hate
-I eat hate for breakfast.
-I hope they go with Luongo. No point playing Schneider in a back-to-back and risking a groin pull, especially in this sprint of a season. It's Luongo's turn in net.
You have to think the Canucks will be up for this game. They took the third period off against the Sharks so they'll be well rested.* They need to shake the defensive gaffes out of their system and just play a solid road game, and they should come away with the 'W' here.
-A little bit of Jannik Hansen.
-I have no idea what Hansen was thinking there. He could get fined / suspended for that.
-Hopefully the team shows some pride in this one and comes up with a big effort. I would bet money that Luongo starts.
-Let's go Canucks
I really hate Doughty!
-Anyone think Lu will play with a vengeance?
-Hate to be that guy, but I called the nucks loosing to SJ (much to my chagrin), I think they will lose here, and they will lose vs. CHI. This team has too much rust right now. It's going to be a tough slog to get going here.
-Chicago will be a much tougher game than this one imo, LA has looked incredibly rusty to start the season
-Henrik takes on the whole team by himself tonight.
Henrik all 3 goals.
-Can we desthtroy the kingsth? That would pleasthe me.
-I didn't know Kesler and Doughty were such close friends
-i fully expect the kings to score their first PP goal on us
-Canucks wouldn't have it any other way.
-17-3 LA. Carter with all 17 goals. Luongo somehow lets in 17 but scores 3.
-Always nice to get the Kings fans insight on everything but the actual hockey game by reading their GDT.
-Its LA. Wouldnt expect their fan base to know any better. Half of them probably jumped on the bandwagon last year.*
Also they have seem to have a disturbing fetish for saving entire folders worth of images regarding the Canucks and their fans.
-Yeah, they seem to have an unhealthy obsession of hating us (joining Minny).*
-I personally don't mind them, except for Brown and Doty.
-Night and day compared to the GDT
of our last opponents.
-I don't really have any issues with the Kings either, they were unbeatable last year. Did anything go wrong for them that run? Pretty sure their 6 Dmen played every single game, that's extraordinary and it shows how much has to go right to win a Cup. Great goaltending, no injuries and timely scoring; tough to beat no matter who the team is.
-Must. Win. No really though, if we don't win we'll drop behind one of Colorado or Edmonton, and both if they go to OT.
-Let's not discuss unverified drug/alcohol/night life habits of players, everyone. That's libel territory, and infractions will follow.
-Pancake jokes still on the table?
-It's also funny how they complain about the Canucks diving when their captain is very well known for it.
-Let's not forget Doughnut boy's famous temper tantrums.
-funny part ith I had no idea Brown had a lithp. Retht athured I will remember that for future ribbingth
-This game can't come soon enough, haha. After the King's classless tweets during last playoffs and the draft, I hope we can bring them down to earth. If the Oil can do it, we can do it too.
-Ehrhoff had good chemithtry with the Thedins and Edler yeth, but if I remember correctly we had to choothe between him and Biektha. You theem to only remember the good timeth with Ehrhoff, yet he hath hith fair amount of mithtaketh ath well. A thlow thtart doethen't necetharily mean that our defenthe is garbage, we need to give them time to regain their legth and to expect Garrithon to achieve inthtant Ehrhoff-like chemithtry with the Thedins and Edler is expecting too much. He needs time to adjust to the new thythtem and playths ath well ath get uthed to the pretty unorthodox way the Thedins play.
edit- goodneth, what have I gotten mythself into?
-You don't athume the lithp. The lithp athumeth*you.
-Am I the only one thinking we've taken the lisp too far? It's getting hard to read posts, lol.
-This should be a great game. Both teams need to sort out their game and they hate each other so everyone should be focused on both sides.
-I'm exthited to see if our defenth can thtop the Kingth powerful offenth.
Guyth like Edler and Hamhuith didn't play well againtht the Tharkth and I hope they can rebound tonight on T-TH-N.
-Would be nithe to rebound on nathional televithion.
-Nucks just not playing consistent right now, playing the team who beat them in the playoffs last season, it's going to be tough, can't pick it.
-whats with the shakespere talk?
-It's a Dustin Brown bashfest is what it is.
-Potht of the thread.
-We let this go on for a while but it's getting out of hand.*Saying that you're doing it just to troll Kings fans is quite clearly crossing the line. Enough. Any further lisping will be deleted, even if it contributes to the conversation about the game.
-Everyone pay close attention to this message.
Also remember - questioning the decisions the Moderating team makes is to be done via PM only. So if you have a gripe with this, use the PMs - no beaking off on the public forum.
Let's knock off the lisping and fanbase bashing.
-I'm excited to see Clifford tonight. I find it interesting that Gillis targeted him and here he is having a huge breakout season so far. I know I wasn't the only one who was shocked when his name was on that list of players Gillis wanted back for Hodgson (and even more shocked that the Kings refused).
-But for tonight, a win and 2 fights.
-Maybe Clifford is the next meltdown target?
-The guy that really seems amped up every time we play the Kings is Doughty. He hate, hate,*hates*the Canucks. If there's a "meltdown guy" among them, he's my bet.
-We have to expose the Kings 3rd D pairing of Drewiski and Muzzin. That's an AHL quality pairing, let's hope we take advantage of it.
-Sedins with 3 points each tonight, Quick pulled, Doughty has to pick himself up off the ice a few times and Penner finishes off another stack of pancakes watching his team loose 5-2 to the'Nucks.
-I think we will see a highly motivated and/or pissed off Luongo. He lost his starting job because of this team.
-I hate LA games I mean who they hell hosts a game at 7:30.
-They're giving out plastic Cup Rings to all the fans in LA. Must have to remind the majority of the people there that they won something. I bet people still don't care there.
-Shoot, I have the Kings feed...
-Their color commentator is the worst...*
"dun dunna dunna.... Dun dunna dunnnaaaaaaaaaaaa"
He does that with EVERY sentence. It drives you nuts*
-The Canucks better start strong and screw the Kings over.
-Burrows and Higgins already sucking hard.
-I love how teams crap the bed against everybody else...but then finally decide to show up against us.
-Not looking good so far.
-kings are throwing everything at the net
-Sloppy out the gate... again. And it's like they forgot how badly Brown owned us.
-Raymond and Schroeder are our best forecheckers. This is pathetic.
-Damn we look small out there. Kings have a great forecheck.
-Really sick of the team being completely unprepared to play. night after night.
-Like the LA Kings all last regular season
-sedins are so ****in slow now
-Only a matter of time before we get scored on
-ballard bailing out edler :/
-nice play by ballard after another dummy pass by edler..
-Edler stole that money from the Canucks. He's been horrible.
-75% of the games we've played this year we've looked like our "window" has greatly passed us by
-Dive and a call. Are you kidding?
-This team is so undisciplined. Fuuuuuuuu
-first LA kings pp goal coming up
-oh look...we're getting outplayed? let's give the kings another advantage and take a penalty
-They keep talking about LA not scoring on the PP = PP goal any minute now
-Kings are ******** on us.
-LOL lapierre just stopped skating
-Almost everyone sucks.
-Why hussle Laps? It's not like you had a breakaway or anything...
-Lapierre looks so slow.
-this team has the amazing ability to made odd man rushes non threatening.
-holy crap, was that a play off the rush!?1? i guess schroeder hasn't been told that we dont do that! lol
-Loving lu so far. IT's gonna be sad seeing the guy go.
Best goaltender in franchise history.
-Best goaltender on our roster right now.
-How is that not a penalty on LA?
-Because it's Little Baby Drew.
-That save by Lu reminded me of Schneider on Brown last playoffs on the 3-1. Luongo's the only guy who's earning his paycheck tonight.
Maybe Schroeder too.
-Kassian you sexy beast.
-We're winning?!?!??! LOL
-God that Kassian. He can have my babies.
-awww yeah! watch out patrick godreau! Zack Kassian is coming!
-did we just get...puck luck?
-So, LA is just not going to touch Kassina tonight? That was ridiculously easy.
dustin brown, captain of the la diving team strikes again:
-another penalty? for what? thanks refs
-man...what a ****ing dive
-Brown goes swimming in the corner...
-That was a classic Brown dive or Henrik is strongest man on the planet.
-Good guy Drewiske comes over to check on Edler
-the ref should really know that henrik isnt strong enough to toss brown around like a rag doll
-Henrik with what looked like the hardest hit he's ever thrown!
-and of course, the brown trip on henrik does not get called
-They make those calls in LA otherwise people would stop going to their games
-Brown flopping worse than a fish
-And we thought our PP was bad...
-La is now 0-25 on the PP.
-burrows is drunk
-Holy ****. We got a PP.
-Burrows and Higgins continue to suck.
-jesus christ our d take so long to shoot it no wonder they get blocked all the time
-Thought I'd never say it on a PP but, god someone pass to the rookie! Only impressive skater on that shift.
-Shoot weakly from way out into the defender's pads. Classic Raymond.
-Wow these powerplays... yeesh...
-****in brutal PP
-I can't wait until the players get back up to speed properly.*
This is some choppy hockey.
-So how are the Sacramento Kings doing? Is Kobe Brown diving as usual?
-Last season I felt more comfortable with Schneider in net. This season I feel more comfortable with Luongo in net.*
-You might have goaltendingitis. You subconsciously harbour resentment for the #1 goalie for reasons unknown. Don't worry lots of (Vancouverite) people suffer from it. The first step to remission is to accept that it's not his fault.
-What the hell was that?
-Wow what a great save!
-Luongo bails his team out again! Wow
-Holy hell, did he get a piece of that?
-wow dat save
where u lookin at quickkkkkk
-Canucks get outplayed, up 2-0. Looks like the ANA game.
-Burrows 2nd. I want to see Kassian score another. Hope he becomes the next Lucic.
They did something!
-More like Jonathan Slow!
-This 2-0 lead is ALL Luongo. no sarcasm
-Wow, we are winning...
-Man lu looks good tonight.
-the post is on our side tonight
-I'm curious, do people actually measure them? how hard would it be for the home team to sneak one net with quarter-inch thicker posts into the game so they play that way twice?
-Yes they are measured. As are most things.
-Size doesn't matter.
-Tell that to my ex Gfs.
-Ferraro gets dumber every year, and that's a stunning achievement.
-Hey! He played in the NHL, his hockey knowledge is unquestionable. Even ask him.
-Another nice save. We're not playing well
-Luongo is just killing it.
-These guys look gassed here. Lu keeping us in it
-Good play in the D-zone to keep Kings chances low, but there's no puck support once we gain possession.
-LAs throwing the body around.
-Gillis phone should be busy for Luongo after tonight. When Luongo is in the zone, he is unbeatable.
-And brown draws another. **** off.
-oh **** did williams get a skate in the face
-I hate Brown.
-This guy is the biggest ****ing flopper...and the Kings fans say we are the divers
carter scores. on the power play. no, i'm not kidding.
-lol there it is, cuthbert jinxed that one
-Schneider would have had that.
-we all new they would get their first against us
-here comes the collapse
-Canucks getting man handled and completely shut down by Kings defense. It's the play offs all over again.
-Carter complaining to refs after scoring a goal, still trying to work them a play later...kinda disgusting
-Not looking forward to the 3rd period. Jeez...
-Doughty holds Henrik stick as he goes down. No call.
-So... we're just not calling penalties against the Kings? Alright then.
-The Canucks are already gassed... I fear the third period is going to look like a Whitecaps/Galaxy matchup. I expect the Canucks are going to "park the bus" and give up the tying goal by the 10 minute mark. Hope I'm wrong...
-kings are owning downlow
-What if the Canucks are just playing like crap to drive Luongo's value up? /tinfoil hat
-Or maybe the Kings are making him look good on purpose so he'll be sent to the East?
-Clearly if the Kings get a breakaway the Canucks d man should fall and slide into him because that doesn't count as a trip.
-WTF?! goaltender interference much?!?!
-Are you serious? Clifford fell down and it was incidental contact.
-They can't call penalties in LA. People would care even less there if its possible.
-That was lame Clifford trips Luongo no call. The NHL is a complete joke it seems every team like LA or Boston the reffing seems to be garbage. Anyways I expect a 3-1 win I want a goal by Schroeder/Raymond or Kassian/one of the Sedins. I think as soon as Kesler and Booth are back the team will start to do better.
-Canucks are looking exactly like they did last year.
Getting utterly owned all over the ice and the only thing keeping them in the game is goaltending.
-The Kings play a puck-possession game, and their personnel plays into this strength. They're going to dominate along the boards because of their size throughout their lines.*
We struggle against these teams, and we always will. Doesn't mean we can't win against them, but we have to play to our own strengths.
-Sedins looks down right horrific again. Just a non factor.
-Roberto Luongo making AV look like a better coach than he actually is.
-typical **** 2nd period
confident that we'll bring it in the turd
-c'mon burrows, show us how you win da turd!
-Kings looked fired up after that 2nd goal, clearly teams and fans still marking canucks games down on the calender and excited to play them.
I was kind of hoping after getting eliminated first round teams and fans would not see us a measuring stick, and we would get some easy wins.
-Let's see if AV adjusts here
-Time to trap it up in the 3rd!*
-Yeah this looks bad..
-Harrison has been smoked hard twice tonight
-The Sedins have had trouble all game getting out of their own zone...this has to be concerning.
-Brown clearly interferes with Garrison. No call.
-Can't remember the last time the Sedins looked this bad. Yikes!
-Keep icing it.... ALL PERIOD lol
-Can we stop icing the puck?
-1. Ice the puck*
2. Take the draw
3. Ice the puck
4. Take the draw
5. Ice the puck
a little something for those of you who say brown has been useless this season. clearly he's GREAT at pissing people off:
-FFS, would someone please beat the **** out of d brown?! GET THE **** AWAY FROM LU
-About time that ****in clown got called. Little *****
-brown being a ******, taking lu out
-About ****ing time. I hope we take advantage of this now
-Make this one count boys
-**** off Brown.
-Shut up Brown
-ahahahah Brown you idiot!!! Keep whining to the refs
-I wish Brown still had teeth to knock out.
-The LA PK is so aggressive.
Seems to be very effective.
-How the hell was that not a hook.
-Where's the tripping!?
-garrison is NOT looking good. Jeez
-Jesus, Garrison is terrible.
-Edler.... Just horrible
-Wow our PP is atrocious.
-No shots on the PP, nice.
-So Quick is basically just Tim Thomas 2.0
How the hell did he get so far out of position?
-That's an auto penalty on Gagne
-penalty to gagne. Excellent.
-Wow.. that was actually a really horrible call haha.
-haha sutter "**** off, **** off, **** off..........**** off"
-That*is a terrible call.
-Hahaha that's a penalty?*
-Ugly call. Rub it in with a PP goal.
-Of course its a penalty you idiot Gagne. You are not supposed to hit a player when they go for a puck on a icing how dumb are the Kings, this leads to injuries. Now for Kassian; time to get payback on this powerplay and capitalize.
-What the hell did Gagner do wrong there?
-Lucky for the Kings our PP sucks.
-Really weak call, but in the Canucks defense (as a Leafs fan watching for fun), you guys have gotten screwed a couple of times.
-Call it payback for all Brown's diving.
-Can't feel too bad for the Kings. They get away a ton of interference.
-Quick, as a Canuck fan, I hate you.
As a goalie, I love you.*
O woe is my heart as it is torn.
Someone get a gif of that beauty!
-Maybe if they called the dive they'd stop trying to pull it off.
-That was soft, Barely even touched Doughty.
-So ****ing lazy. Watch us give this up here.
-goddamit we're gonna **** away our 2 goal lead right here aren't we
-Kopitar dives. No call. But interference on Hamhuis.
-Huge PK here. This is the game.
-wow are you kidding.. doughboy goes down to one knee so it must be interfernce
-What a ****ing dive by Kopitar..and a dive by dougthy. you kidding me?
-dive by kopitar and doughty. wonderful. And people say our team dives? **** off.
-Wow, Burrows took a huge two hander there.
-Not sure what game people are watching here but that was clearly a penalty by Hamhuis....take off the homer glasses.
-it was a typical borderline holdup that doughty sold like the little ***** he is
-Hamhuis left his lane and interfered, it's a penalty...doesn't matter if Doughty embellished anything because he was still interfered with.
-If the Canucks are up with 2min left, there's gonna be like 10+ King dives lol
-lol who was that King who threw his arms back when eh got tangled on the ice with malhotra?
kings are diving like crazy tonight
-It's almost fun pointing out how many calls the refs miss on the Kings.
-A pretty efficient shutdown period by the Nucks. Couple more minutes...
-If we can hold the Kings to 1 goal, we should be happy with our defense.
-and we're totally hanging back, wouldn't be surprised if the kings scored
holy crap. pulling the goalie actually worked. voynov scores:
-fml. i dont want another shootout.
-That's what happens when you sit back and do nothing. Poor coaching.
-So ****ing typical
You haven't heard of clearing the zone..
-Who didn't see this coming? We were getting absolutely dominated the past two periods while trying to "sit back" against the defending Stanley Cup Champs.
-that sucks i hate LA
-"Play like crap and get scored on..."
I literally just said this out loud and they score.
-knew it was coming, incoming shootout loss
-Too much traffic in front, Luongo didn't have a chance.
-****, I told myself I wasn't going to watch the 3rd because I'd already seen the script enough times.
-**** me sideways with this ******** ****ing ********ing ********
-WOW Hamhuis, are you ****ing serious...did you even look where the **** you were putting the puck? Jesus.
-1. Get 2 goals
2. Hold on for dear life
-AV for ya
-Another 2-0 lead down the drain. It's hilariously unlike this team, they've been consistently unbeatable the past few years when they have a lead.
-LOL sedins ice it with 8 seconds left
fantastic game by them
-Inb4 Luongo choking in shootout.
I called it.
-I hate this team.
-Now all the Kings have to do is play safe and go to the SO and they auto-win
so ****ing typical
-And here I was thinking we might actually get an empty netter for once
-At least we have a good team for 4 on 4
-Alright, this blowing leads thing is getting old.
-Not that I support it, but didn't this "get the early goal lead and hang on" win the Kings the cup?
OT & SO
-Where's our forecheck??
-hey, lets get a shot this OT please
-No sense of urgency.
-Still playing the penalty kill.
-lol sedins do nothing all game and AV puts them out twice in OT
-We need to end this before a shootout, no way we're beating the Kings in a shootout with Luongo in net.
-if we're going to base things off one game, both these teams are not contenders
-LA doesn't need to be contenders, they already won a cup.
The canucks, however, not looking too good at all.
-looks like another SO loss, ****ing pathetic
-why the hell are they playing for the shootout? what a joke lol
-omg, stranger things have happened...we can win this SO. I believe. With kassian, anything is possible
-Quick is a monster in shootouts. Highly doubt we win this
-Quick ain't that good in shootouts either from what I've seen. High glove side.
-Facking Doughty we could have won.
-**** doughty...raymond would've ended it in OT there if it wasn't for that play. Didn't notice how close it was til they just showed the replay
-Oddly, LA was actually worse than the Canucks in shootouts last season, so I guess there's a chance...
Oh who am I kidding.
-Quick doing a little dance.
-haha, Quick scrubbing his crease in time to the music cracked me up.
-Have to get upstairs to beat Quick, he's too good down low.
-That's a big save.
-Oh my god. that was great
-oh **** luongo, we might have a chance!!!
Lu? Have you been practicing?
-That was a weird goal by Kopitar. Almost looked like it didn't go in the net.
burrows tries a little WTFery:
-Not sure what that was.
-Cmon what are you DOING!!
-WTF was that??!!?1?
-What the sweet **** was that.
-LOL WTF WAS GTHATasacvacac
-Sigh, weird Burrows, just weird.
-***** did I just witness
-Wow a Luongo poke check??? I don't know if I have ever seen him do that. Ahahha
-Nice Poke Check?
Holy Lu must've worked on his shootouts.
-A little surprised Brown didn't dive on that poke check.
Then maybe he could have lobbied for a re-do?
-Oh I've seen this movie before. Luongo goes 3 for 3. Canucks go 0 for infinity.
-carter, 4 for 23...as bad as daniel, watch him score, lol
-That was a nice goal. No chance for Roberto
-typical that one of the kings worst shooter scores
-That was sick.
-Go Kassian... give this pathetic team a chance
-Whiffed, Kings win.
-most frustrating loss of the season.
Utter garbage. this team looks dis interested and putrid.
-I am sorry but this team is just so depressing right now unbelievable.
-I am so not looking forward to Chicago...
-How people think we sat back is beyond me.*
LA was the better team tonight. Territorially dominated from puck drop. We did not sit back, we were out matched at every turn.*
The two goals were nice hard work team goals, but the Canucks can't compete wit that size and strength, especially withou Kesler and Booth.*
-I'm not going to lie, this is probably the most pissed off I've been about a regular season loss in a long time.
-Reminded me of that game on new years eve last year where the kings won 4-1 and just utterly dominated us physically and in every facet.
