The view from Vancouver - LA Kings Insider


Jason Botchford: Kings 4 Canucks 0: Dominant Kings shut down Canucks

“The Kings own the Canucks in a way that instinctually makes you grimace at the mere suggestion they could meet in the playoffs.”

Ed Willes: These Kings are just getting started

“Stop us if this sounds familiar but Darryl Sutter’s team controlled the game’s principal battle areas while grinding the Canucks’ attack into so much mulch.”

Tony Gallagher: Cup champion Kings simply a cut above

“The Kings, meanwhile, are simply doing what they do at this time of year, which is throttling their opposition with their huge players while generating offence from their outstanding strength up the middle as well as what’s on the wings.”

Jason Botchford: The Provies: The tale of Henrik’s spin, Gman’s eyes, moral victories, hamhuis’s sadness, and Prince Kasspian

“The Canucks wanted nothing to do with the Kings forecheck by the time the Kings settled into their groove. They were soft and passive with the puck.”


Iain MacIntyre: Kings down Canucks 4-0 to move within one point in Pacific race

“The way the Kings were playing Thursday – and have played for five weeks since rousing themselves from their post-Stanley Cup doldrums to take a run at a third title in four years – there was no margin for error for the Canucks, who made several big ones.”


Daniel Wagner: I Watched This Game: Canucks 0, Kings 4

“When it comes to locking things down with a lead, I’m not sure there’s any team better than the Kings, though it may only seem that way because I mainly only see them when they play the Canucks.”


J.D. Burke: Canucks Army Postgame: Crowned.

“The Canucks have one win in their last eight contest with the Kings, and have been outscored 9-25.”


Sean Larson: Canucks fall flat to Kings again in 4-0 loss

“While the Kings didn’t register an absurd amount of shots either (they had just 19 as well against Lack on the night), they were able to beat Lack three times, including once on the power play.”
