  • Mathieu Garon will start in goal. - Daily News

Quotable:

"He's an unbelievable player. When you talk about a combination of scoring and playmaking ability, there are probably only five or six other guys in the league with his kind of ability. He could dominate the spotlight, but he doesn't want it. He'd rather not be on center stage. He likes to stay in the shadows. That might hurt him with (winning) awards but that doesn't matter to him." - Craig Conroy on Pavol Demitra

"If it turns into a good thing where I can use it against the other team and they're upset at me, then even better. I don't think that when I initially say something, but usually the trickle-down effect plays out. It's the echo system of the NHL and the managers and the owners and all that. I don't know. All I know is I'm just sick of everybody being such stiffs." - Sean Avery - if pushing the envelope gives him an edge on the ice, he's all for it.

"Matty is the best defenseman in the league that no one knows about. He has been for years. This guy can play. It's my job to make him known to everybody." - Jeremy Roenick said after being traded to the Kings in August

"That was very classy what they did in the first period. It means a lot to me. I was there nine years, and they showed a lot of class with what they did." - Ian Laperriere on the Kings' video tribute to him

"It's not about winning the next few games. We're not going to win every game, but it's about putting ourselves in a good position for the playoffs. It's not about making the playoffs; that's not good enough." - Luc Robitaille


Injury Update:
  • Kings have activated left wing Luc Robitaille from the injured reserve list.
  • Derek Armstrong, who has missed 10 of the last 11 games with a groin strain, likely will play tonight barring a last-minute setback.

St.Louis has been on their longest winning streak of the season(2 games). Sanford was also named the defensive player of the week. Hopefully the Kings can put an end to their HUGE streak and Sanford will get lit up!
There is no reason ON EARTH for the Kings to lose this one!
GO KINGS GO!!!!

If the Kings win tonight...

they'll only be one point away from having the best record (in terms of points) in the entire NHL.

they'll more than likely have scored more goals than any team in the western conference, and the second most in the entire NHL.

Go Kings Go!!!!!!!!

looking forward to it ... as always!

Luc is back, im sure he wont get a ton of ice time but it will be interesting to see where he fits these days. Looking forward to Garon as well, hope he can play as solid as he has the past two games, specifically more like how he did against he avs. I would really like to see roenick pick up a goal or few assists today, as would everyone else im sure.

We got some damn solid lines most impressive recently to me anyway has been Avery Belanger cowan line. They really did a hell of a job in Van. Much more-so than they got credit for.

Whos gets the Hat trick tonight? Pavol... Conroy... or Frolov

oh and im EAGERLY awaiting mr. George Parros' return I love that guy!

Forget lappy, Parros is the Johnny Depp of hockey, and you can and should quote that.

That brings up an interesting question. Is the Frolov-Conroy-Demitra line the only one in the NHL this year to have a hat trick by each player?

Let's not forget that the Blues beat the mighty Red Wings in Detroit in their last game. They'll be swelling with pride and confidence. This game could be a lot tougher than the Kings were hoping for.

Or maybe it will give them a false sense of security and they get blown out. I guess it could go wither way.

With the way that the Blues have played this season, I don't think that they feel secure about anything. If a team blows it tonight because of a false sense of security, it'll likely be the Kings. I hope they don't sleepwalk tonight like they did against Colorado.

and i would imagine that any wings' fan would say that it was a case of a good team playing down to the level of their opponent.

I would really love to see the Kings come out of this with a solid effort, considering how poorly they have played in St.Louis the past 10 years or so.

You know, I'd happily trade a win for a loss if Roenick and Brown could each put up a goal and an assist tonight. Those two really need to get going. Right now, there's just about nothing I'd rather see than a beautiful goal from JR (especially one off of a beautiful pass from Brown).

Tonite is almost as much of a test as VAN and COL were... It's easy to "effort" against top opponents and play to their level of intensity, but over the 82 game schedule can you get up for games against teams you should beat by 3 or more goals (which they've already done v. STL)? Will they look past STL to DET?

We'll see...

I will say that if the Kings don't go crazy with penalties they should be fine. When they only have to kill 7 or fewer PPs the Kings are 14-2-1. I think after Saturday's game, they owe us a good 5-on-5 effort as well.

The way the top line is playing, you probably won't have to trade a W for an L if JR and Dustin get going offensively.

I think brown is a little too young and inexperienced to calm himself down enough to look up and check out where everyone on the ice is. Many times when i see him get the puck in the offensive zone he gets real excitable and will pass or shoot very quickly, like when you see someone who has a wide open net and rather than control the puck and make sure it goes in, they just start swining their sticks at the puck trying to bat it in the net the second the puck comes to them.

Once he learns to slow it down just a tad, and realize that he can look up and aim his shots better or make some better passes he will be a great offensive contributer. Im already a big fan of his without the goals, so i cant wait to see how he matures.

In other words, he has to let the game come to him a little more... all the great players have that ability.

You pegged it. He doesn't look enough to see where his linemates are, as if he has blinders are, and is impatient when it comes to making plays. He needs to calm down, as you mentioned. It would also really help if he would drive to the net more.

I didn't even get to say that with Mr. Magoo as the ref, we're in trouble...before he called Avery for unsportsmanlike conduct during a cycle.

huh?
