San Jose @ Los Angeles - 10/6/09 - 7:30PM

.


Los Angeles Kings
(0-1-0, 0 pts)

VS.



San Jose Sharks
(1-1-0, 2 pts)




7:30PM (PST) @ Staples Center Los Angeles, CA


TV Broadcast: FS-W (Home), CSN-CA (Away)
Radio Broadcast: KTLK 1150 AM, XM 205


GAME PREIVEW
Season series: First of six meetings between teams that finished at opposite ends of the Pacific Division standings last season. San Jose went 5-1 against Los Angeles, including a couple of shootout victories. Patrick Marleau's three goals led the Sharks, while Alexander Frolov also scored three times for the Kings.

Big Story: Expect Los Angeles to come out with something to prove after a dreadful home opener against Phoenix. Meanwhile, San Jose should be confident against an opponent it has had great success against the past several seasons.


Sharks: This is the final stop on a season-opening, three-game road trip for San Jose, which lost 5-2 to an emotional Colorado team fresh off Joe Sakic's jersey retirement ceremony but rebounded for a 4-1 win over Anaheim, some payback for last spring's first-round playoff elimination.

Dany Heatley, acquired in a blockbuster deal with Ottawa last month, is seeking his first goal with the Sharks. In his first two games, he's recorded a pair of assists, five shots on goal and a minus-2 rating.

Kings: Los Angeles finished 38 points behind the Presidents' Trophy winners in the Pacific last season. The Kings expect to cut into that gap, but they got off to a terrible start Saturday by losing 6-3 at home to Phoenix, which tied Los Angeles with 79 points in 2008-09 (the Coyotes finished ahead of the Kings by virtue of two more wins).

"In practices and preseason games, I thought our team at least had good habits," said defenseman Rob Scuderi, who signed as a free agent after winning the Stanley Cup last season with Pittsburgh. "Maybe we didn’t win all the preseason games, but I felt we made good habits that we built in practice. Tonight we went down a goal, then the second one was kind of tough to take, but either way you have to be able to play your system and stay together as a team.

"We’re not going to go anywhere if we fall apart every time a little adversity hits us."

Who's Hot: He's no longer captain, but Patrick Marleau has led the way for the Sharks with three goals in their first two games. One of the positive things to come out of the Kings' loss to the Coyotes was the power play, as Anze Kopitar, Alexander Frolov and Drew Doughty all connected with the man advantage.

Injury Report: Sharks forward Joe Pavelski is expected to miss in the neighborhood of two weeks due to a lower-body injury. The Kings have a healthy roster, although veteran defenseman Sean O'Donnell won't play as he serves the final game of a suspension that carried over from the preseason.

Stat Pack: Los Angeles is 27-19-4-2 all-time at home against San Jose, but just 4-11-1-2 since the start of the 2003-04 season.

Puck Drop: The Kings get an immediate opportunity to make amends to their fans for the season-opening stinker, but the level of competition only gets tougher with the Sharks in town.

Not too optimistic going to the game tonight, but hopefully they surprise me and make me jump up more than the Sharks make me grumble.

I wonder which pair gets matched up against the Thornton line...






...and yes, I'm being rhetorically sarcastic.

Johnson with Harrold eh? Hmmm.

Scuderi-Greene is a nice shut down pair though.

Is that on NHL network or VS?

I forgot to check to see if there was another game to record before I left the house.

Can't decide whether I want to check updates on my phone for the SJ game or just wait and watch it fresh when I get home around midnight.

So annoyed... first season with season tickets and I have to miss the second game.

Ahh yes.. the defensive stalwarts of Jack Johnson and Peter Harrold. That should be good for at least2 goals against.

I expect them to get back to basics with lots of dump and chase, shots from the perimeter and the team playing its usual boring style. I think they'll be better than Saturday (I hope they couldn't be any worse) but the Kings go 0-2.

I'm an idiot.

Oh hey, look a schedule, that's awesome!... god forbid I actually read the thing.

Hopefully I can still catch someone at home to record that one for me. That'd be great to watch tomorrow as I lament unemployment.

normally i'd say wait and watch it fresh, particularly if you're the type that likes to be slightly medicated when watching but that particular kind of medication requires the child's bedtime to have passed. tonight though... i think it's going to be ugly. get someone to let you know if it's safe to watch before you invest the middle of the night in it.
