Well, Cory did get pulled, but that was because he got injured. That being said he wasn't good against Chicago in that game.

I look at this as a gift. Luongo robbed our boys more than once. Schneider played well enough in relief last spring but that was last spring. Just keep up the war and we'll win.

I don't really care who is in goalie. When they're both on their games, they're two of the better goalies in the world. Schneider comes with the inexperience factor and Luongo comes with the mental fragility. I care more how it affects the entire Vancouver roster. They'll either rally and come together or they'll implode. I'm hoping for the latter.

Wow. I didn't really expect they would pull Luongo.

Desperate times call for desperate actions, I guess.

That's some circus they run up there in Vancouver.

Luongo doesn't seem to care so I guess Vancouver has nothing to lose.

Don't let up Kings, doesn't matter who is in goal.

Get it done!

Go Kings Go!

Let's go Kings!!! Such a great playoff team to watch and so much history with Edmonton. I bought my first Kings jersey when Gretzky moved

Light Schneider up. All of Canada, including BC (so many ex-Albertans and Saskatchewanites living there!) is cheering for you.

Hail Mary.

Vigenualt knows if he starts Luongo tonight and it goes down 3-0...starting Schneider in game 4 would look AWFUL in the eyes of the Vancouver fanbase, because he never ever got a chance to be a difference maker.

He puts him in tonight..figures what does he have to lose? If they lose...either way this series is over. Coming back from a 3-0 deficit is almost unheard of. Enter our defensive scheme and goaltending and it seems that much less attainable.

Hell even taking 4 out of the next 5 games against Quick seems impossible to me at this point. But that's why they play the game.

Guess Vancouver is going for the shutout win. Don't see how Schneider is going to improve their offense.

The road team is 11-5 thus far in the playoffs.

Getting out of Rogers Arena should help the Canucks focus.

This is going to be a tough game for the Kings.

It's amazing how much pressure being the home team adds.

The Kings need to keep their composure. No mistakes, keep it simple, and just be hard on the puck all over the ice.

Vigneault switching to Schneider shows how desperate Vancouver is going to come out playing in this game. Sutter needs to use that as motivation for the Kings. You have to be as desperate as the Canucks are boys. Don't let them up off the deck.

I wonder if Canucks fans started to infest the LA Live area even during the Laker game.

Hey guys, just noticed the Lakers are currently in the middle of a home game at the Staples center. Its still in the 3rd Q and likely won't be done before ~6pm (Eastern, so 3pm PDT). How are they going to get the fans out and the arena converted in time for the Kings puck-drop?

They do it all the time during the season with afternoon basketball/night hockey or vice versa. Only takes them a couple hours to change the arena over.

Gives me chills every time I watch that.
That was the loudest it has been of any of the home games at Staples over the last two playoffs. I expect tonight will be as loud or louder.

I'm familiar with the process. The same thing happens at the ACC with the Raptors and Leafs. I'm just surprised they can do it so fast, pretty impressive.

Anyways good luck tonight, cheering for u guys!
