Holy fucking shit that was bad. The Kings of the past 6 home games disappeared tonight, and the Kings of 2008-2009 showed up.
The Kings sure can learn a lot from this game tonight. The Sharks showed the Kings how to win a game by dominating in the dirty areas of the Ice. A majority of their goals were scored from the slot, with the defensemen throwing the puck at the net, and the Sharks having 3 guys surrounding the netminder to whack at the rebounds. The Kings defense, as a whole, did a terrible job of protecting and clearing the front of the net. Furthermore, the Sharks dominated the boards tonight, Browns rush for the first goal not withstanding. They prevented the Kings from generating offense off the boards, forcing the Kings to generate their offense off the rush.
It is still early in the season, but I sure hope the Kings use tonight's loss as a gut check/wake up call. They need to get back to their defensive game. And for fucks sake Anze, wake up and start taking over a couple games.
