Nobody. Every other of the eight series has been interesting and exciting. Even Tampa Bay, who are playing golf now, played several close games against a much better team. The Kings/Sharks series, though, has been virtually unwatchable. Two historic blow-outs, the likes of which (consecutive playoff games allowing 5 or more unanswered goals) I’m starting to think we may never have seen in our lifetimes. Followed by an OT loss in which three of the four goals-against were such flukey knuckleballs that the announcer couldn’t even tell you where the puck was, much less that it was a goal — until the ref started pointing. “Oh, hey, it must be in the net.”
How is it that the league’s supposedly best defense has allowed 6, 7 and 4 goals against in three games? That’s a rhetorical question. But this isn’t: who is Dean Lombardi going to make pay for it?
