All I care is that we keep pace with Florida at this point.

Andersen sucks in shootouts my god. Kings had anyone that could finish they should have scored on all their shots and quit sending M&M out there they’ve sucked all year in the shootouts.

Matthews attempt was pathetic

Him and Marner have been horrible all year. Fuk’n talent they have and it’s absolutely atrocious in shootouts. Quit been so fancy, simplify it and shoot the damn thing.

How can anyone get so upset over a shootout?

Yeah. The shootout is a funny thing. Most of the teams that are really successful at it are outside the playoffs. Teams current in playoff spots in the East are a combined 7 games below .500 in the shootout - with the 1st place Bruins having a 0-7 record.

That's because Pasta, Marchand and their goalies suck at it too. Shootouts are dumb, end of story.

Yeah, basically. They can be fun to watch, but they're a stupid way to actually decide games and impact the standings.

Yes, the Leafs played patiently and structured for the most part (very Babcock-like), but it was also the Kings refusing to forecheck and basically playing for the OT.

That was practically criminal, forcing us East Coast diehards to watch them stonewall the whole 3rd.
