Here's the lines:

Taffe - Koivu - Heatley


Bouchard - Cullen - Wellman

Johnson - Brodziak - Powe

Gillies - Almond - Staubitz

Schultz - Lundin

Spurgeon - Scandella

Stoner - Zanon

Hackett
Backstrom

Prosser might be the 7th defenseman if Gillies is healthy scratch.
You are giving this Kings team too much credit. I expect the Wild to clamp things down (as they do in most games). Watch Cullen be the stand out player tonight, he seems to always perform well against the Kings.

Didn't he just make his first career start against SJ and shut them out?

Sorta, but not really ... Harding started the game but got hurt a few minutes in, and Hackett came in relief and shut them out.

What happens if they come out flat again in the first period and wind up losing the game in a low scoring affair?

I think DL has already telegraphed the next move if things don't improve soon, don't you?

Yeah, he'll throw his OTHER gauntlet down, and then BOTH will be on the floor. Serious business.

Williams will participate in tonight’s warmups. If he feels OK, he will play. Otherwise, Brad Richardson will take his spot.

Yeah right. He rarely if ever says anything about the entire organization from the players, to the coaches, to his management team being responsible for a particular problem. Most of the time he focuses on what the players need to do better.

Something will happen if things don't improve soon.

Richardson would be dynamite if he only had hands.

So you're saying he'll try some last ditch effort to try and save his own butt from being fired like Dave Taylor did and you all whined about him for doing so ... but you'll give Lombardi a pass on it, because we've improved SO MUCH and done so much better in the Playoffs as a result of Lombardi ... yeah sounds about right, carry on.

GO Lombardi Fan Boys GO !!!

No, I don't think he will trade more prospects for veteran players along the lines of what DT acquired in his final days as GM. That would be the wrong thing to do, and Dean knows it.

You can be critical of this team's performance so far this year and rightly so, but I don't see that as an indictment of the "new" philosophy that exists in the organization today vs the DT days.

The use of the term "Fan Boys" is lame.

Great, that'll kickstart the offense, Brad 'one assist' Richardson. We need more goals and we go with him. Not that he's been terribly better, but doesn't this seem the right time to try Stoll on the wing? We want to keep Loktionov up here full-time, give him the third line centre and put Stoll on the wing. At least Stoll has shown he can score this season.

TM is so uncreative it isn't funny. His coaching strategy is so simply; the old 'throw as much **** as you can at the wall. Something will stick.'

How many of those bolded players need to score their first NHL goal? Then we will know how many goals the Kings will need to score.
