Worrying about starting goalies before or after a game should be a thing of the past. Both can get it done, anytime, anyplace.
Old habits die hard...i feel the same way sometimes

Could it be that they're trying to showcase JB?
I immediately thought this when i read on here he was starting. Sutter is notorious for riding his #1 goalie through the season and letting the backups collect dust. It seems like JB has been getting a lot of ice time this season (most of it is deserving of how well he's played) so it makes me wonder if we're trying to raise his value for a a trade before his contract expires. JB has already said he wants to be a #1 and wants to go somewhere where he can be just that so...its not completely insane to think that upper management want to raise his value for a decent return.
It will be a sad day when he goes thats for sure, having been a Kings fan my whole life i cannot remember a time when i had confidence in both goaltenders.
