The Canucks gave a push late in the game, but unfortunately, it wasn't enough to overcome the two-goal deficit. The Kings are known for their ability to shut down their opponent, and tonight, they executed as they needed to shut down the League's top team.

"It was a hard-fought game. It's a good game for us to realize that execution - that we must make sure we go to spots to score goals."

Even though they lost, Tocchet seemed pleased with the team's effort. Two well-structured teams, according to Tocchet, the Kings ended up having the upper hand due to lucky bounces and their inability to properly clear the crease.
The fact is, the Canucks played a good game, facing one of the league's best defensive teams, without two crucial offensive pieces in Dakota Joshua and Elias Lindholm. Even though Casey DeSmith wasn't to blame, it's not hard to wonder what Thatcher Demko could've done had he been in the net.
This game was an excellent preparation heading into the playoffs. The Canucks will, however, have to wait until the next game to confirm their place in the playoffs. The Canucks have the Dallas Stars lined up next, another top team in the West, they'll be in town on Thursday.
