I never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait to see games back in LA so there'll be some decent ice.

The Prudential center is a friggin dump, at least in terms of the actual rink. Weird bounces off the boards and awful ice.

Don Cherry said last night that the Devils are playing scared hockey right now. I don't know if they are scared, however, this series reminds me of the Wings-Preds. The Wings would have the puck but it was always on the perimeter of the ice and not really threatening the Preds goal. I see the same thing happening in this series. Long distance bad angle shots have made Quick's life fairly easy out there. The Kings are letting the Devils skate around all they like on the outside and when the puck goes in front of the net or in the corners, LA is laying a beating on the Devs forwards and dmen. I agree with Cherry that if NJ is going to make this series then Kovalchuk and Parise and Zajac have to become more physically involved and not be satisfied to take the easy outside ice. Their speed should draw some penalties if they attack the middle of the ice. LA is winning the physical battle out there. NJ has played alot more games than LA has in these playoffs and you have to think this will be a factor going forward.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

I know it's the Cup finals, but the level of interference is nuts. Picks being set all over the place, pinning guys against the boards well after the puck has gone. One hand off the stick grabbing guys in puck battles.

I know the GM's are talking about potential rule changes regarding shot blocking to open up the game. But it's not the shot blocking. Just call the interference closer to how it was in the regular season. A defensive zone faceoff for either team is basically a ruby scrum.

Dan O'Halloran blows a call awarding the go-ahead goal? Say it isn't so!

Holy soft call. Did Penner fart when he skated in front of Brodeur or something? Because I'm not seeing the interference.

Gotta love O'Halloran. It shows the sad state of NHL officiating when he makes the Cup finals.

It's amazing considering the first two games Quick literally had guys laying on him while he was making saves.

Brown to Kopitar what a pass and shot.

Parise's the one who quit on the play and allowed Kopitar to get open.

And just as you'd expect from the good 'ol NHL these days, the refs are doing everything they possibly can to try to give NJ the advantage and get the, back into it by calling the game as unevenly as they possibly can.

And apparantly so much as even look at Marty and its a penalty...but take a run at Quick? Its all good, no penalty.

Including the double, what is that, 7 penalties they've called on LA now? And how many against NJ? One or two? And the one didn't even put LA up a man, just evened it up.

I was hoping for 2 things this series. 1) a one sided drubbing from LA. 2) a poor showing from Parise to make the fanbase somewhat disdainful of him so he gets let go easier (ala, us with Hossa after 09).

Looking good thusfar! My link
1 more loss then he can come over to the Dark Side...
