The view from Vancouver - LA Kings Insider


Ben Kuzma: Canucks 4, Kings 1: Canucks full of bliss and vinegar

“Eddie Lack returned to fine and feisty form — calling out Yannick Weber for being beaten to a puck and appearing prepared to bolt his zone and join a second-period scrum — and supposedly sedate captain Henrik Sedin nearly started a Staples Center riot.”

“More importantly, the Canucks didn’t tip-toe after the Kings opened the scoring and could have caught them in the wild chase for playoff positioning.”

Tony Gallagher: Can the Canucks repeat that kind of game?

“The cynic would say the Canucks wouldn’t still be scrambling for a playoff spot if they could replicate that effort more often in games against the so-called lesser opponents, and it would be hard to argue that point.”

“The win gives Vancouver, currently second in the Pacific Division, 86 points and a four-point cushion on the Kings.”


Daniel Wagner: I Watched This Game: Canucks 4, Kings 1

“That’s why it was incredible to see the Canucks not only compete with the Kings, but for long stretches outplay them, tallying more than 20 shots in the first two periods alone, finishing the game with 42 shots to just 26 for the Kings.”

“This was maybe the best game of the year ( or at least in weeks of months ) for both Linden Vey and especially Nick Bonino. Bones was engaged and effective, even while getting torched on the Corsi Chart.”
