I have two comments on game one

  • Prime Ticket: SPLIT SCREEN?? YOU SUCK. 
  • Jonathan Quick: don’t do that.

Bonus third comment: didn’t Quick do that once last post-season? In one of those four losses? I choose not to be heartbroken about this. Maybe the Ducks will lose…

    Bonus comment: It was this one, right?

    I’m going with … “they needed a loss like this to light a white hot fire under their asses… this will motivate them enough to own the rest of the series”. I”m not presuming they didn’t have it anyway but .. it’s the thought stream I’m going with.

    Prime Ticket split screen REALLY the suck. Sad attempt by some poor programmer not to lose their job after too tightly scheduling games.

    I missed the game, having had choice seats for the Dodgers game since long before the playoff schedule was announced. I had my DVR set, but they showed the final score on the stadium scoreboard without so much as a spoiler alert.

    From the recaps, it sounds like the Kings got off to a slow start, got mostly out hustled, and still came close to winning. Disappointing, but not discouraging.

    It will be interesting to see how they react, after not having lost a first game at all in last year’s tournament. I am reminded of a line in Dune about how never having experienced defeat is a weakness.

    Quick did it in the Stanley Cup Finals. I wanna say it was Game 5. Parise scored.

    He’s also done it about 15 other times in this NHL career. At least he doesn’t do it as frequently as he did when he was young. I was at a game in Vancouver his rookie season (March 2009) and the Kings came back from a 2-0 deficit only for Quick to hand the game to the Canucks. That was frustrating! Hopefully this was his only gift to the opposition this spring!
