Even though it seems this is said every game, this really is a HUGE game. Kings are neck and neck with us right now for a Playoff spot and a Win here puts us in 7th and is a large 4 point swing between the two clubs.
Unfortunatly I just dont like our chances in this one, Kings are playing very well with Sutter and were missing some key guys. Getting 1 Point out of this would be huge and a Win would really say something about this team.
Going with a 4-2 win, Goals from Duke Skog Jones and Galiardi, Varly with 46 saves and plays teh game of his life.
Kevin 'I played great' Porter is going to get a hattrick in the 1st, then get into a fight with Brown in the 2nd subsequently breaking Brown's hand in the fight who will be out for 14 games, and then he will knee Kopitar in the 3rd, tearing his ACL and getting ejected from the league by Shanny.
His post game conference will be to the tune of, "I really thought I played great, but everyone told me I made a few mistakes. I promise I'm not a dirty player."
Why? Because he lights us up every once in a while?
Personally I'm okay with the fact that we traded away a guy with 3 goals and an assist through thirty games.
My only complaint about that trade is we took Delmas with that pick instead of Holtby, Poulin or Lindback.
Ignoring the other promising forwards taken later. We wayyy overscouted the QMJHL that year (Tessier over Nyquist... ugg). Glad the Avs took some Euros this year and appear to be righting the ship long term, even if Nermark never pans out it is a sign of good things to come.
