I'll be cheering the Kings on in section 106 tonight.


Go Kings Go!!


Hopefully, Frolov will break out of his goal-scoring slump tonight.

if theres one constant, in the first 3 games, that i noticed is the kings skating...if the kings can get a good flow offensively, they would be very hard to stop and it would be like game 2 and 3.

A constant that I've been noticing is shooting. When they shoot, they win (not profound, I know). The problem is that they're not shooting almost as often. You'll often hear Miller or Nickson comment midway through a period that the Kings have yet to register a shot in the period. Just about every other game, it happens in the first period and that's an inexcusable trend. The Kings cannot let that happen against the Stars.

Same to you.

Agreed on this. I think Dallas will come flying out of the gates tonight. They've been **** hot since we beat them last time, and they'll want payback tonight!

Yep, Matt Ryan will be joining the Kings. Not sure if he will be dressed tonight, but if he is, he'll be wearing jersey #40.

Funny how Garon's stats are pretty good in comparison to Turco's.

I bet 5 bowing smilies to anyone that Ryan will, despite getting the call-up a week later, get inserted into the line-up before Grebeshkov.

We have more defensemen than we need, why he was called up to sit is beyond me. Belanger's hurt, so Ryan will probably take his spot.

Also, Parros may be questionable for tonight's game as his ankle has been hampering him, as he sat out the game against Phoenix. If Parros is out, the Kings may have to go with 7 defensemen.

I'd pay to see a line of Ryan, Giuliano & Kanko. They would be flying out there.

Garon has really come around. Guy is a legit starter in the new NHL.

I am also willing to bet he has been the best goalie on shootouts so far.

Well, with Frolov, Demitra and Conroy and Armstrong, Avery and Cammalleri... I guess you have a pretty good chance of seeing that line out there, with Brown, Robitaille and Popcornopolous as a unit (I guess Kostopolous can take a face off...)

Obviously, we all know how important these next 2 games are so we just got to take it one game at a time and go out and destroy the stars tonight. We need to attack from the start!

Wow! They just showed Cammalleri's goal against Phoenix, the backhander from the slot. Boy, was that a sick shot. I have to agree with the Times writer who said that it was one of the prettiest of the year, by far the prettiest backhander.
