Those non-playoff teams... they can kill ya!

Now that the big 5 game winning streak is a distant memory, the Kings have gotten trampled by Detroit (elite), squeaked by St. Lousy (who were playing at a clip 2nd best in the NHL over a period of about a month) and decisively beaten by San Jose (who are doing their damndest to make making the playoffs a struggle by going 4-3 in their last 7.)

Tonight is another of the have-not teams, and the Kings can only mathematically juggle their lines about 64 ways over the course of the game, and only 23 guys can technically get pissed about the coaching staff's inability to decide where players should be, who they should be with, and what they should do with the puck when they are on the man (or men) advantage.

So, it's another "must win" for the team that is in such disarray that they look like they are about 15 minutes into the opening day of training camp at times, and it's another "must lose" for those that can't bare the thought of Andy Murray and company guiding this group to another disappointing "how did we miss the playoffs with all this talent" season.

On XM, whenever the playoff race is discussed, LA is one of the teams that the "experts" see falling out, with teams like ANA, EDM, SJ falling in.

Tonight... another non-playoff team. Which Kings team (aside from "the depleted one without Frolov and Demitra") shows up?

A fascinating time of year.

I get to go to a hockey game... it will be happy I can't lose. If they win, I get to see a good game. If they lose, I get to revel in the fact that everyone is going to be pissed, and I knew it would happen. Good times. Thanks, willie
