Kings/Devils post game, Roy out, Therrien, Oilers, Blues and more

Morning puck addicts!

Wow, what a game last night! If you missed it, it was another close, low-scoring match between the Devils and Kings. L.A. continued their road dominance, winning a record 10th straight time on the road in these playoffs.

The Kings did it in style too, with Jeff Carter potting the winning in the first OT for a 2-1 victory.

Kings' goalie, Jonathan Quick, continues to be dominant, matching veteran Martin Brodeur stop for stop.

As I wrote about last week, I don't see how Quick won't end up winning the Conn Smythe trophy. Despite heroics from several players on both teams, Quick's play has been above and beyond.

If he had played just an average game last night the Devils could have taken the decision.

Instead, they find themselves in the dubious position of having lost both opening games on home ice. Now, down 2-0 in the series, the Devils must win four of the remaining five games, including three in Los Angeles.

Apparently the stat is that only 13 percent of teams losing the first two games of the Stanley Cup final, have ever gone on to win.

It could happen but the way the Kings are playing, I don't see it happening.

I'm not sure how to feel about trading away Quick in my keeper league to acquire a goalie I coveted for a while: Carey Price. I was out of the running, going for next year. But wow.... I still like Price more. But what a season those Kings are having.

Go Kings Go!
