Guys? Apparently we host the Kings tonight - 8:00mt on TSN

Guys?

We play again today.


(6-6-2) @ (5-6-3)

Preview:

Quote:
Big story: The Kings wrap up a grueling stretch that has seen them play eight of their first nine games this month on the road by trying for an Alberta sweep after winning 3-1 in Edmonton on Tuesday. The Flames start a three-game homestand after a 4-0 loss at Phoenix on Monday.

Team Scope:

Kings: Los Angeles dominated play for most of the game in Edmonton but entered the final minute of regulation in a 1-1 tie. But with 49.6 seconds remaining, Jeff Carter deflected Trevor Lewis' shot past Nikolai Khabibulin to put L.A. ahead, and Jarrett Stoll added an empty-netter for a 3-1 victory that moved the Kings back to .500.

"Obviously we didn't want it to take that long," Carter said after the Kings outshot the Oilers 38-24. "It's just one of those games, Khabibulin was playing well. We were getting shots, but he was making saves. It's never easy in this building, but you have to stick with it for 60, 65 minutes, whatever it takes."

Flames: After a gutty 4-3 win in Dallas on Sunday in which they overcame a two-goal deficit in the third period, the Flames had very little in the tank Monday night in Phoenix. Calgary trailed only 1-0 after two periods but surrendered three goals in the final 20 minutes and left the desert with a dispiriting 4-0 loss.

"It was not a team effort," coach Bob Hartley said of his inconsistent team. "We had some guys that took the option on this game. They just didn't respond."


Now introducing your 2013 Calg..... Springfield Flames??


















The defending Champion Los Angels Kings


Clifford - Kopitar - Brown
King - Richards - Carter
Penner - Stoll -Williams
Lewis - Fraser - Nolan

Ellerby - Doughty
Scuderi - Voynov
Drewiske - Muzzin

Quick - Bernier

Guys?

I hate late games. If this is as "entertaining" as the Phoenix game, I may be snoring on my couch by 10:00


Hopefully LA is as tired as I may be - and we can pull out a win.

Another must win. But that concept doesn't seem to sink in to the Flames so all I can say is go Flames go and for the love of God fellow Flames posters please stay away from the optimism thread

No - still out with sprained MCL.

It's either MacDonald or Taylor.

What does Clumbus have against the kings? just because of Carter? They should be thanking the kings for not only taking him off their books (Been great for us but was not a good fit there at all) but paying a pretty penny for him. A 1st in a deep draft and a top pairing d-man is enough that there should be no ill will.

I mean because Columbus has LA's 1st, so if we beat LA it helps CBJ get a better pick.

The Kings have been struggling as well and this should be a winnable game but I just have no idea which Flames team will show up. The Phoenix game was total Brent Sutter hockey. Hopefully no soft goals against tonight.

Anyone know if Sven is close to returning?

I really don't know what to expect? I doubt LA is tired after last nights game... Minimum travel. Soft game. Late start.

I expect a close physical game. 3-2 Flames.

God I hope Iginla gets a goal (or two or three!!!)

I wonder what team will show up at home tonight? Te hard working, responsible fast paced team who takes lots of shots? Or the team that leaves the backup goalie out to dry and our 4th line gets praise?

In the end, I want us to win every game for the rest of season, and at least one winning lotto max ticket in the next month or so

Our 3rd and 4th lines got a lot of ice time last night so the forwards should be fresh. Voynov, Doughty and Scuderi played alot and had to work hard to keep up with a lot of the oilers. I worry they maybe physically drained.

I have a feelign that alot of the players will be bringing their "A" game as Sutter will be there. Either they will be grateful for the millions he gave them and want to prove they are worth it to the guy that gave it to them, or if they were not given it maybe a "F" you for not giving it to me.
Like I said before the oilers game if the kings can weather the first I like the odds.

I'll predict Iginla being a beast tonight. He'll want to put his impact on display for Dean Lombardi

Nice to see those old Kings/Flames brawls. You really couldn't touch Gretzky back then.

Wasn't too smart of Sabourin to pop Gretz with Miller and Baumgartner on the ice at the same time.
