I love these early start times.

I hope Bernier starts, and plays well. He's had a slow start to the season. Doesn't help that the Kings have played poorly in front of him.

Does Clifford's play in the last couple games remind anyone else of playoffs Clifford from last year? He's been throwing hits, finding loose pucks, getting into board battles, actually getting some chances, and crashing the net. He may not be fighting, but I find this very encouraging.

I wonder how much of it is motivation spurred by change versus adjusting to Sutter's system (sound long lasting lineups, more aggressive on loose pucks, and constant feedback). I really like Sutter's matchups too. He is thinking the game better, with a more energized fourth line skating hard, getting into puck/board battles, and fighting for loose pucks, he can focus that line against more offensively talented opponents and try to wear out their more skilled players while focusing our offensively gifted talent against their lesser matchups. It wouldn't have worked with Murray because the pairings/lines were bad, inconsistent, and he didn't have the bottom 6 playing this aggressively. Despite my initial reservations, Sutter has been a complete breath of fresh air for this club thus far.

I think Quick winning the Vezina would be exciting and such a great personal accomplishment for such a talented and humble individual. I would be excited to see it happen.

That said, I'd be curious to know how much more his price tag would be after adding that to his resume. Selfish, I know, but a million here or there can go a long way in this salary cap era.

Or it could be totally inconsequential.

Sutter usually has Doughty out there with the 4th line. Murray loved the 4th line and bottom pairing combo.

When the 4th line got caught in their zone last night, it was nice seeing Doughty and Mitchell on the ice.

Go Kings!

Good Luck LA Fans but my Jets need the 2 pts more. Win tonight and then against TO and we will be 2 pts behind Florida.

The best we can give you is 1 pt if you're ok with that.

I don't mind giving the charity point to you guys but it's the Kings who needs the two points the most

We're both sitting tied for 8th, so we could go back and forth on who needs the 2 pts more. I argue that we need the points more since we're sitting at 37% chance to get into the playoffs and you guys are at 57%.

That's what losing your team for over a decade does to you Reminds me of the Wild. How enthusiastic they were to get a team again and that sellout streak...
