The view from Vancouver - LA Kings Insider


Ben Kuzma: Canucks 2 Kings 1 (SO): Canucks stand tall to stave off Kings

“On a night where it looked like they were going to be beat by Jonathan Quick — and a post — some slick Sedinery and Eddie Lack’s bounce-back effort made it memorable.”

Ed Willes: Sedins just may have delivered this city a playoff spot

“To date, it’s the biggest goal of this Canucks’ season and with two games left on their schedule, it now looks like it will take divine intervention to keep them out of the playoffs.”

Tony Gallagher: This win was Swede, but Horvat takes the cake

“This was another massive test passed as he was energetic, creative and forceful playing against Anze Kopitar, who under these crucial, close-quarters circumstances might be the best centre in the game, with apologies to Jonathan Toews.”


Brad Ziemer: Canucks crown Kings, move closer to clinching playoff spot

“There were lots of people suggesting not so long ago that the Canucks could not compete with the Kings. Well, Vancouver has now beaten Los Angeles twice in the last two weeks.”


Harrison Mooney: I Watched This Game: Canucks 2, Kings 1 (SO)

“The Canucks poured it on after the goal, but this one required overtime, and then a shootout. And once there, you had to like the Canucks’ chances. They’re good at shootouts this year.”


J.D. Burke: Canucks Army Postame: King Henrik

“To the eye, they’ve stood up physically to the rigors of playing the oft referred to as “heavy” Kings. I’m still not convinced the Canucks can beat the Kings in a seven-game series.”


Sean Larson: Canucks overcome slow offensive start, fight back to defeat Kings in shootout

“The Canucks rebounded nicely from the shaky start. Despite not being able to even things up during the opening period, that was the only damage done as Eddie Lack stopped 14 shots before the first intermission.”
