Some quick thoughts from the NHL on TSN panel on Thursday night.

It's been a cast of rotating heroes that have been the most impressive with the Los Angeles Kings. From top to bottom, the Kings have been a great team but it just seems like every single night there is somebody different taking up the cause.

The Dustin Brown-Anze Kopitar-Justin Williams line really dominated throughout, but Jarret Stoll's entire line with Trevor Lewis and Dwight King was on fire in Game 3.

The third line was terrific; Stoll drawing penalties and creating offense. He had eight shots attempted at the net and three of them made it on the net. He was skating as well as he's ever skated and was all over the ice.

The Brown-Kopitar-Williams line has been good in all three games for the Kings. In Game 2, it was the Jeff Carter- Mike Richards group that stepped up - Carter with the hat trick and Dustin Penner playing well also.

And then there was the third line in Thursday's game. It just seems like every game a different group comes to the forefront.
