We have played this team well in the past winning 6 times but this is a different team with a better coach. They look to be pretty healthy (not taking into account Heatley and such) as do we (not taking into account our losses that we all know about)
Pretty straight match lads (and shielas). I was right last time with my one true predicition of my life at a 2 2 tie so I will poke at it again this time. Huet is supposed to start in goal for us and if he is on we can see a win.
Kings 3 Thrashers 2.
GO KINGS! GO GET THEM THRASHERS! MAKE THEN BEAT THIER WHEAT IN THE LOSS COLUMN!!!
Kings did well to fight back for a point in Detroit. They usually follow up games like that with a win.
Atlanta has a good record at home, but then the Kings have a good road record. I think the Kings will do well tonight.
BTW- for the record, I HATE the overtime lose thing the NHL has added! Why someone is rewarded with a point for losing is beyond me. What's next? You get a point if you're leading after the 1st period, a point for leading after the 2nd, and a point for winning? Ugh!
Saxon Sports Information and Research
King defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky, diagnosed with a bruise after being hit in the arm with a puck in the Kings' 3-2 overtime loss Monday to the Detroit Red Wings, could play tonight against the Atlanta Thrashers.
Back to the goal by Savard. I know it was near the slot, but it could have been saved by Huet, no screen in front at all. He's also leaving rebounds so far that he wasn't in his other starts. At least Dafoe is playing worse.
I'll have to see another replay to see if it was a great shot or poor positioning.
