I think Dan Cloutier actually said it best in the locker room after the game — this team is either great or terrible, and there’s no in-between. The Kings were absolutely horrible during a four-minute stretch in the second period where they allowed four goals and then amazing in the final 11 minutes of the third period to come back from 5-1 down and force OT. There’s no other team in the league that can be so bad and so good in the same game.
I’ll have interviews coming up with Crawford, Kopitar, Johnson and Ersberg. Since I’m not on deadline — and thank goodness with this game — I should be able to get them up quickly.
