I think the Kings will come out strong tonite! They know that the Preds are a good team and got a lucky win last time the 2 played. The Kings will want to prove that they can beat the Preds without a fluke shootout goal.(Labs would have stopped Kariya anyways )
The Kings haven't come out strong against most teams this year, especially good teams. I'd love to be wrong, but I have a feeling that the Preds, especially at home, will take it to the Kings in the 1st. The Kings will need to weather the storm until they can get things rolling.
