Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
So now, here we are in 2013 and, two games in, it has been a complete reversal of fortune for all the Kings men. All the games that they found a way to win last year, they found a way to lose against the Blues.
In the opener, a turnover by Quick led to a shorthanded unassisted goal by the Blues’ Alex Steen and 1-0 series lead for St. Louis.
In the second game, they were nursing a 1-0 lead, only to give up the tying goal to Patrick Berglund early in the third period. Just as the game looked as if it were heading to overtime for a second consecutive time, defenceman Barrrett Jackman stepped up on the play and blasted a slap shot past Quick’s glove hand that he couldn’t handle. This is the same Barrett Jackman that had 20 goals in 598 career games heading into this season and managed just three more in the lockout shortened 48; the same Barrett Jackman that had one goal last year and zero the year before.
Can somebody say Bryce Salvador?
