Should be a tough challenge for the Kings as the Canucks have the best home record in the league right now. If we can get another great game out of Garon again tonight, I believe that we will be able to beat the Nucks.
Go KiNGS Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wow, look at the similarity between the stats of garon and auld.

Garon, LA - 21 GP | Record: 12-7-0 | GAA: 2.67
Auld, VAN - 21 GP | Record: 12-6-0 | GAA: 2.65

interesting, i guess auld is better than i thought. or garon is worse...

Yeah, we figure if we put him out on the ice completely naked, the 'Nucks are likely to just forfiet rather than risk one of them having to go into the corner with him.

I just hope that slug Anson Carter plays up to the level he achieved while he wore a Kings uni. God, I hate that guy.

Based on statistics alone these teams look to be evenly matched. Missed the last game for a lame reason, but I'm looking forward to this one. Vancouver is usually exciting to watch. The rest of the week should be good too.

The Kings got completely outplayed that game, and AM is sitting here basically telling them they played great. Yeah it must be a gratifying feeling playing half-a$$. Hockey and still getting the win. I wonder what Garon was thinking when heard these great words of wisdom from AM.

I mean what standard did they set? Playing 20 Minutes of a game and floating around of the last two periods?

F__ken ridiculous.

Anyways...

I think the Kings have a good chance tonight if Garon can duplicate his performance from the Ducks game. Otherwise we're screwed. The Nucks have only lost 2 games at home all season and they are coming off from one of those losses, so you know they're gonna be fired up. Plus they probably want revenge from the last time they played us.

Should be a great game.

The Kings are also so undefeated when I predict they lose. So...

Canucks 5-1.

He'd have to suffer another terrible abdominal injury.

How's he done in Vancouver? Has he helped the Sedins? Been the player you expected?

"I didn't know Steve Kelly was black." remains one of the best grouping of words ever typed on a message board.

He's been great with the Sedins. He is second on our team in Goals Scored with 11, tied with Bertuzzi. He has helped Henrik score at just under a PPG and become our 2nd highest points getter while Daniel is #4. He plays on the PP with the Sedins and also does a good job killing penalties. Hell, he even got in a fight earlier in the year.

And if ur wondering why he wears a visor now, he took a nasty highstick in a game against Colorado.

For what it's worth, I'm sure there is an error in the originial quote and it means to say 'Saturday night' in the brackets. (Not Lisa's error I'm sure)

welll...since it was the last game against the Nucks when the Kings began their terrible play...perhaps this game would snap them out of their slump...

i mentioned this before...but does anyone else notice that when Corvo and Lubo switch sides on the PP, they're able to fire off 1-timers easily and effective

He's on the trip, but barring an unforeseen injury in warmups, he'll be a scratch tonight.

I'm happy he's back.

The Kings rollin thru Vancouver watch us Generally Motor over ya Place/
The clock that's countin down to ya loss is tickin to the end of its time,
Ay Kings watch out in the shower Bert likes hittin men from behind/
We already beat you once, so watch us get to dazzlin,
Todd, man, come on admit you not sh-t without Naslund/
But Morrison even you know you the weak link in between the wings,
All we gotta do is stop two players, cause we can easily stop the Sedins,
Oh, and hey Cloutier... drop to ya knees,
Cause you blowin the game son, you won't be robbin the Kings/
But hold up they got the grit, and the heart inside of Matt Cooke,
But trust me there's a reason ain't nuttin logged under ice time in the stat book/
They say they got more than Cooke, they got Jarko Ruutu,
But Sean Avery ain't someone you used to, he's gonna abuse you/
See the chances of you beatin us is like winnin when you bought a lotto 'tick,
Enjoy the short reign of not bein' Colorado's b-tch/
If you didn't learn from last time, you better pack ya lunch kids,
I'm sittin here still tryna figure out what the **** a Canuck is/
You gonna find out why I say it each time, listen, 'Yo Team Blows,
Pre Game Rap 2-0, now sing Go Kings Go!
