I agree with the 2nd comment of your post.
Although it wasn't the flu. it was AV making stupid, biased decisions.

AV is a genius for putting Alberts in instead of Ballard. Ballard is a small, mobile defenceman who was victimized on countless times last year in the playoffs against the big, physical L.A forwards.
This game, Alberts absolutely owned the Los Angeles forwards. When you take away their physicality their depth guys really don't have enough skill to score goals. Carter and Kopitar were two of the biggest and hottest forwards in the NHL coming into this game - Carter with a 5 game goal streak and Kopitar with 9 points in his last 4 or 5 games, and both were shut down in this game. The only offence they generate is on a powerplay and off a brain-fart from Schneider.
Alberts and Bieksa in particular played much more physically than the Kings forwards did and we contained them. They really didn't have many good chances and you can thank our defence for that.

His record speaks for itself, I also trust that mangement will know when to pull the trigger on letting him go.
I'm not in the locker room or there when personnal decisions are being made therefore don't feel it is necessary to criticize them. As long as our team is competitive I'm pretty happy about him being here. He's been successful 6 of 7 years, you really can't complain about that in a league this competitive.
That said maybe changes are made in the offseason depending on how the playoffs go, but in reality there is no point whining about every little thing YOU think he does wrong because you have no idea what is going on behind the scenes.

Alberts didnt look to fly. Time to cut bait and get Ballard to a team that knows how to utilize his skill set.
If he is scratched for health reasons,I can live with it. But if not,they really know how to run a guy down.
