I'm Brian Webber welcome to our Stanley Cup preview presented by Pete's not I'm pleased to be joined by hockey analyst Larry Murphy Larry let's take a look it. Game three of the -- defense has been solid the first two games. His Jersey over six with the man advantage how was really been able to keep them in -- The penalty kill for Los Angeles been absolutely astonishing throughout the playoffs and it continued the same style of play on the PK. In this series. It's a case of lots of pressure on injured and not a team that allowed the opposition New Jersey and me this set up. They -- while -- cover for each other they do great on the -- the likes of Willie Mitchell was really stepped up. In this playoff run has been extremely effective he's a big -- a lot of reached. Breaks up a lot -- Pass through the middle -- all on the face off the -- work along the boards the puck -- loose at all that goes down to our feet and he course he got Jonathan Quick back there -- it. If things do break down they always make these days or -- replica. I hit all the big guns from Jersey -- having big time troubles going on job the quick but the team got a myriad of shots. On goal in game two what he just -- you expect head coach Peter the board and make for game three. Why are they expect. Really that many adjustments on their part the -- strong competitive game the Porsche was working well. They just couldn't -- the pockets the case of the team has got to take advantage of their opportunities. Yes there's a couple of things that they're gonna wanna do that and I wanna have a little more traffic in front Jonathan Quick but I don't want to be in the high slot area for those deflection. But they need to be little more creative -- this team that's got great speed and I think that they can develop more scoring chance by utilizing it. Passes in the far east west making Jonathan Quick move across laterally. Just create good scoring opportunities if you Marleau -- all is well. Obviously thirty shots in the first sixty minutes was only able -- produce one goal against them -- They're gonna keep pressing Z and they don't need to make big changes we just got all their right here that play -- much they did in game two Larry are you surprised Ilya Kovalchuk has been so quiet in this it. What one guy that we can see a little more offense or -- doesn't have any points on the border but only three shots and the holes you -- the guy that's got fired a puck from Mary where he's got a tremendous shot. We haven't seen him. The speed neutral -- we haven't seen him carry the puck. Yeah it was only -- get Los Angeles. Let me credit for that they had been playing it real tight. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I mean I'm not -- let's act read the Booker Travis -- problem these guys -- -- but. Is number one guy plays most of any sport out there. Got to produce for this team. Finally do you think the Devils can steal game three in Southern California or -- the kings have too much momentum. Why I don't think momentum seems this game my game and it's it worked actually in the Stanley Cup. Final yes there -- a couple of wins but it solid start all over again new Jersey's playing the same way Los Angeles got -- at all Bryant is being too complacent insider. I think coach has been harping on this team here in the press conferences. He's not letting the media tell me. Fights it off that the kings are playing this great -- brand of hockey he believes he's got more. Conference he's gonna need it because New Jersey will be much more desperate in game three and the kings -- play the same way. But carry the puck a little more but one thing the -- -- so far this series is their guys are stepping up like that. -- did in the first game Jeff Carter did in our -- -- used to be able to continue along that at the big saves big goals. Or they could end up winning game three and at that point my little right off balance. Break out the brooms potentially in LA Larry thanks so much for the Ian nice that's gonna do it for this Stanley Cup preview presented by -- don't forget. Foxsports.com.
