As odd of a game as it might have been, a couple underlying facts made some sense out of things. First, Corey Crawford's stratospheric save percentage of .953 while shorthanded had to come down at some point. And it started to come down tonight thanks to two LA power play goals.

The other has to do with how lackluster the Blackhawks have been sans Jonathan Toews:

The Kings have to like this trend, especially with Kopitar having an improved performance on Toews in the WCF over last year.
