Oh no, we have a power play.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

We are going to win this game and the series.

L.A. is playing above their heads. Anyone remember the 1st round series these two teams played 2 years ago?? At one point L.A. was 10 for 14 on their PP. Then we took over and silenced them. That's what good teams do.

L.A. implodes just like how they blew the division by blowing 3rd period leads in 2 straight games. Give them time and they'll fold like a measly pair of deuces.

At least they figured out how to break in. Cross ice pass while skating out of our zone.

At this point, I'm so glad we traded our 4th leading scorer so AV can form a checking line that is dismantled in game 2 of the the 1st round. Now, Henrik and Kesler have to hard match against top opponents and Canucks can't score.

Awesome. Great strategy. Working 100% so far.

I think the canucks thought their season was over after they beat boston in early january. its just too bad that win didnt happen 6 months before. this series looks over to me... even if they beat the kings its not gonna get easier.

Alot of the problems right now are fixable. They are not giant ones. We need a different breakout play and a different strategy for our pp.

This is no different then the last time we faced LA. We had PK issues. Right now, we have powerplay issues.

Regardless of the outcome of tonights game, we need a different strategy. The reason LA has a number is because our tactics are too easily read by others.


Don't disagree but we and the coaches have known all this for months and changed nothing! You really think they can turn it around in 2 days with a team that is deflated and lacking confidence? No way. They've got to go with what they have an it's not looking good to get to round 2.

Proud to call this province home.

LOL better then five in a row like the Kings had last game.... Maybe the NHL will let one squeak in so LA can have more games.... Dang bias to Canadien teams.

Don't do that. Coho would be invisible in a series like this. (see? I can make baseless speculations too!)
