Videos- Canucks Play Tough But Can’t Score Against The Kings

from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,

At the end of a bitter bad-blood battle, the Kings would claim a 1-0 victory, but this wasn’t about the points or the fact the Kings have four regular-season wins over the Canucks for the first time in 23 years. It was about making a point and maintaining a resilient collective mindset that Tortorella has been drilling into his troops.

“I thought we did a real good job as far as deciding that’s our ice also,” said Tortorella. “It’s been a minus in our game. We got squat for points but we crossed a couple of bridges in what needs to be done.”

...  How Sestito wound up with two minutes for instigating, five minutes for fighting, 10 minutes for instigating and a game misconduct had the Canucks scratching their heads.

This game was a war from start to finish. Very entertaining game. The Canucks hate Dustin Brown.

This game is also one of the most poorly officiated games I’ve seen in a long time.

If you’re trying to attract the attention of the casual fan, your officials should be better than those in the NBA, not worse.
