LA  comes out hard after giving up goals and the Wings keep failing to meet it.

After scoring a goal, the Wings seem dangerous for the next couple of minutes - to themselves! I think it happened once or twice in Jersey game too.

tough break, but they got a point.

the kings dominated them last year, so playing them even is a sign of progress.

esp considering no that without Bert or Vrana they really didn't have a #1 line with any cohesion. Perron scored a couple but unless I missed reading my numbers, he also failed to cover his man very well on one they gave up. 

I thought early in the game LA really had them chasing, with the Wings wasting a lot of energy on defense, rushing to where LA had already left. Their anticipation seemed to improve some as the game went on.

That play by Larkin is the kind of play that cements a guy as the Captain...if your 1C is chasing down a break away like that you better put forth the same level of  effort.

Perron is what we thought Zadina was going to be...a sniper.

zadina could still be a "perron type".  but youre right, that's what we thought he would be and he has not been that yet.

on the whole, i thought zadina played well last night.

Maybe because he's still getting to know the players, but so far Lalonde seems to be mixing up some of his lines more. It goes without saying that mates who play together alot have advantages, but still there have to be nights and matchups when there are other combinations that match up against a certain team better so I'll be interested to see how he manages that as the season goes on.

That play by Larkin was the Tayshaun play vs. Indiana,  it wasn't nearly as important as that, but it was the same type of play........The fans will always love you when you play like that - even if you lose.  

That play has me wondering about a rule I've never seen applied - if he had tripped on Dylan's stick, which was about the equally likely outcome of the play, and been awarded a penalty shot, would they have let him take it on an empty net? .......(checks rules...) No. In fact no penalty shot, the goal is just awarded. 

Guess it has to be that way otherwise there would be every motivation to just hook anyone on an empty net breakaway...

What makes that play even greater is how he didn't trip the guy.    Just a great play.
