And this time, the game wasn’t stolen from the Kings by any stretch.

Disappointing.

Over the last few weeks, there have been plenty of nights where the Los Angeles Kings deserved better than what they got. Tonight, it’s a lot harder to argue that was the case, although we’re willing to entertain arguments that (i) an uncalled elbow by Matthew Tkachuk on Drew Doughty and (ii) Jeff Carter hitting the post in between two Grade-B goals on Jonathan Quick could have changed the course of this game.

Recap to come, if you can stomach it.
