EL SEGUNDO, CA — After a poor effort at Vancouver on March 2, the Los Angeles Kings went back to the drawing board on March 3, trying to fix what went quite wrong against the speedy, skilled Canucks.
“Some of our guys weren’t at the pace we needed them to be last night,” said head coach Darryl Sutter. “We just want to reinforce the pace that they have to play at, in terms of moving pucks, getting to pucks, that sort of thing.”
One example of that was the line of Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, along with Trevor Lewis and later, Dustin Penner. Sutter noted that the line struggled against the Canucks, as evidenced by Richards and Carter both ending up with a -3 plus/minus rating for the contest.
