Waking up with the Kings: February 5

Thursday’s 4-2 loss offered very little to appreciate from the perspective of Kings fans as the visiting Anaheim Ducks, clad in highway worker-hued jerseys, opened up a 2-0 first period lead, used a 15-4 shot advantage in the second period to chase Jonathan Quick, and held on for a comfortable 4-2 win that signified the gains and momentum in their own game while illuminating several shaky individual performances by the home team.

February 4 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On what he made of the loss: 4-2. What’d you make of it? What’s the question? What’d you make of it? I didn’t make nothing today.

I bet that there’s a chance a […]
