Power Play Report

The Los Angeles Kings still haven’t found the back of the net on the man-advantage this season. That’s surprising when you consider they have talented players like Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty and Ilya Kovalchuk. Although they’ve looked better on the power play, per head coach John Stevens, they still aren’t executing.

I think the power play actually took a little bit of a step, but I think the whole idea of execution to get into the zone, spend more time in the zone is an area we’ve certainly got to address this week, and then just quicker puck movement with more momentum and movement to the net,” Stevens said after Monday’s 4-1 loss to Toronto, per LA Kings Insider. “You want to get the puck with possession, you want to establish the middle of the ice and you want to get numbers going to the net with momentum, and you want to have people around the net. Toronto’s a great example of that. They’ve got two units there – everyone talks about the first unit, but that second unit creates a lot of momentum for ‘em, scored a big goal tonight. I did think our power play created momentum for us tonight. I think your power play, even when it doesn’t score, should leave you coming out of that situation where you feel like you got a little bit of a thrust, and I thought we had that tonight, but at the end of the day we’ve got to score on it.”
