G78 2016-03-26 Refs embarrass the entire league in la-la land

Game Notes L.A vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at Los Angeles Kings (Head Coach: Darryl Sutter)

NHL Game #1128, STAPLES Center, 2016-03-26 08:00:00PM (GMT -0600)

Kings 6-4

Referees: Mike Leggo, Ghislain Hebert
Linesmen: Brian Mach, Kiel Murchison

Tonight’s Five Stars, all from the LA Kings: Referee Mike Leggo; Referee Ghislain Hebert; Tyler Toffoli; Milan Lucic; Jeff Carter

  • I’ll say no more about the reffing other than to note that – as unbelievably incompetent and uneven as it was – it was no worse than it usually is when the Oilers play the Kings. Call it fairly and this is a tie game. I downloaded this gif before the game to prepare:
  • The Oilers deserve better. The whole goddamn league deserves better.
  • Good effort in the first and third period. Second was all Kings. How much of that was the horrific reffing dampening the spirit of the Oilers? The stats are one-sided, but that was entirely the second – the first was even and the third was won by the Oilers.
  • McDavid and the Big Rig were money (as was Ebs, though he wasn’t in quite the same league as the other two).
  • Seksy Fayne got ripped up tonight.  When your D is twine and baling wire heading in and then your two most veteran guys have a bad game, you know it’s going to be a long night anyway.  The ReinOes had an OK to poor showing (on par with the team), and Nurse and Clenden actually looked best by my numbers (and by the defense pair rink maps, which are worth a look).
  • Still, I’ll take it. Frustrating as hell, but that was actually an entertaining and hard fought game against a brutally tough opponent – and the Oilers made it close.
  • Korpikoski and co. were shut out shot attempts wise in the first period, and “only” incredibly terrible the rest of they way, all finishing sub-20% on the shot attempts.  They finished at 2% on the DFF% as a line!
  • Yet they played that first period as much or more than the Hall-Yak-Drai line – who were all breakeven or better. Now yes it’s true that the Korpi line sometimes gets in and lays some hits on the Kings. They go to the front of the net and a few other good things. But usually after that they spend the rest of the shift chasing the puck in their own zone, bleeding an enormous number of shots and chances. I’d really like to hear the rationale for the ice times.
