Showing poise

The debate about Scuderi’s hit is an interesting one — vote in the poll below to register your opinion — but it’s also worth noting that after a couple questionable hits later in the game, specifically on Drew Doughty and Alexander Frolov, the Kings didn’t retaliate. Here’s what Rob Scuderi said after the game…

SCUDERI: “They have a very good team. They have a lot of skill and a lot of talent, so that’s something where you can’t give them a spark. If we retaliate, or if we give them a spark, maybe they start to come back in that game and get some momentum. I’ve seen it a bunch of times before in my career, so I thought our guys did a good job of staying disciplined, not getting sucked into that game, playing our game and finishing them off.”
