Rank the Players: Kings Play Excellent Game, Lose

New, 8 comments

Three turnovers end up behind Jeff Zatkoff as LA squanders a terrific overall game.

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at New York Rangers Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Henrik Lundqvist will not be found in the below poll, but you will see a number of Kings who played quite well tonight. Vote accordingly!

In the wake of this loss there’s a ton of frustration and confusion, and the Kings’ style just seems to lend itself to more losses like this one. I’ll beat the “LA played extremely well tonight” drum until I put a hole in it, but there were certainly some mistakes tonight, which we’ll go over in the recap.

If LA plays like this in New Jersey tomorrow, they win. Let’s just hope they didn’t use up the effort tonight.
