A Bit of Squid - April 18th

Well, that game didn't turn out the way we were expecting last night.  Sure, it would have been absolutely lovely to win another game 3-2 in overtime, but once again that stupid knob on the end of Roberto Luongo's stick got in the way.  For goodness sake, that's 2 games in a row now where that knob has become an overtime issue.  Game 1, it got stuck in Luie's pads and he was just able to get it out in time to set up for the next rush.  Game 2, it deflects in Anze Kopitar's game winning goal.  Roberto, the Canucks fan nation begs of you to chop off that knob!

Another knob that didn't help at all last night was Andrew Alberts.  Seriously, he's already taken 5 penalties in 2 playoff games for us, and it just so happens that 4 of 5 Kings goals are scored on the powerplay.  Coincidence?  Sure, maybe they've figured out how to beat our penalty kill (speaking of which, we really need Ryan Johnson back), but the best kind of penalty kill is to stay out of the box in the first place.

That's all I've found so far.  Throw any more links into the comments.
