Kings @ Predators "King's Ransom for a Win"
 



NHL.com Preview: http://www.nhl.com/ice/preview.htm?id=2011020991

Quote:

Season Series: Third of four meetings. Each side has won a one-goal game on its home ice. Simon Gagne had the decisive tally in the Kings' 4-3 victory on Nov. 8, while Patric Hornqvist scored the winning goal as the Predators prevailed 2-1 on Feb. 27.

Big Story: As the Sharks have scuffled, the Kings have won three of their last four games to pull within one point of their Pacific Division rivals for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff berth -- although Los Angeles has also played one additional game. While the Kings only average 2.12 goals per game, they recently moved past Minnesota and out of 30th in the NHL in that category -- and the wild card in their lineup, trade-deadline acquisition Jeff Carter, scored his first goals Saturday in his fourth game with the team.

Just moved back to Nashville on Saturday and this will be my first home game since game 6 against Anaheim last year. Bring it on!

Red Wings @ Philly, Blackhawks @ the Blues, with a win we could make up some ground.

Absolutely. Wings are without Datsyuk and more recently, Howard. The next few games are crucial.

Got an exceptional deal on tickets for the lower bowl for this game, and I am going with one of my buddies for his birthday. Hopefully the result is similar to the ThirdManIn bday spectacular.

AtlantaWhaler 03-06-2012 07:35 AM

I Will Son 03-06-2012 08:47 AM

Go Preds! Going back to bed!

Joe T Choker 03-06-2012 09:24 AM

In the words of Al Davis ... Just win baby

Insanepredator 03-06-2012 12:01 PM

I'll be in attendance tonight.:yo:

(and maybe Thursday too.)

Cashville 03-06-2012 12:37 PM

Kings game? Win 2-1 or 1-0. Go Preds!

Seth Lake 03-06-2012 12:38 PM

Pekka Rinne vs. Jonathan Quick in nets tonight.

When asked about the lineup, Trotz said only minor tweaks if any, nothing more than maybe 1 D and 1 F changed.

Hoping to see Ellis replace Bouillon tonight. Don't expect a forward to change out, but if it does, I'd look for Smith to get pulled in favor of Halischuk or Yip to add grit to fourth line...

Found this link on the Kings forum about their upcoming roadtrip:

I'd like to see Ellis replace Bouillon too, not Hillen, but would really be surprised if they sit Frankie. They like his bowling ball random hits even though they usually leave him out of position.

Kings V Preds is always fun. I am sure you guys talk about it alot, but it is an absolute crime that Trotz has only been a finalist once and has never won a Jack Adams Award.

haha well......we agree, thanks. But I guess performance is all that matter so if it goes unawarded, so be it.

someone better have a good "Carter = homewrecker" sign at the pre-skate

Fantasy question: Which game are we more likely to win.. LA or Colorado? My gut says CO

Insanepredator 03-06-2012 05:08 PM

Well I'm out guys I'll bring back tales of how the game went latter tonight.

Probably Colorado, but there's no reason why we couldn't win both.

Pregaming at hooters. Let the beer flow. Hope the scenery is a preview for what happens on the ice tonight.
