Postgame Poll: Kings Overwhelmed in Game 2, Go Down 2-0 in Series

Quick got pulled tonight. That's how bad it was. - USA TODAY Sports

LA leaves the United Center with "Chelsea Dagger" ringing in their ears. Pick your scapegoat.

Tyler Toffoli looked great (along with his linemates Jeff Carter and Dustin Penner), Jonathan Bernier was perfect in net in relief, and the Los Angeles Kings didn't get outshot 17-2 in the first period. Oh, and they got over the one-goal mark on the road. Not too many other bright sides tonight as the Chicago Blackhawks scored twice in the first and twice in the second to put Game 2 away by the halfway point. Michal Handzus getting that fourth goal was just rubbing it in.

Jonathan Quick got pulled after allowing those four goals, but the defeat tonight went a lot deeper than the goaltending, as Quick wasn't helped by the defense or most of his forwards tonight. Pick anyone you'd like to be mad at and tell us what you want to see in Game 3. At least that one will be in Los Angeles.
