“It always says something about the character of the team, the work ethic. Players playing hard for each other, when you see that kind of a comeback. I think there was a great amount of that.

I like how Handsuz is a +3 with only 4 points and Sakic is even with 8 points.

Also at Budaj and even stranger at Raycroft.

I think the game will be a high scoring affair, something to the tune of 6-4. and if FF was any indication a very mean game as well .

Kind of hoping we see Richardson in place of Ivanans or Armstrong for a game. He deserves a crack and I thought he was solid in the first game. Perhaps he and his speed can help spark Boyle, who I also wouldn't be surprised to see scratched.

This will be an interesting game both teams are great offensively and not known for their defensive games. I say 5-3 Colorado.

I watched the other day the game between A's and Stars. Hard to judge on it beacuse Dallas is a crap team this year. Anyway goalies are weakest part of the chain of Avalanche team. We might outscore them for sure. If our PK will continue to do great job, I don't think they can score more then 3 against us. Moreover if TM will start with our 1st line (DB,AK,Sully) from minute 1, we sure can score more then 3 against their crapy goalies, besides we have hot 3rd line as well. I agree should it be high scoring affair and Kings win at the end 5-3 .

P.S. It's better for Smyth not to touch Labs, cause this time would pay hard for that

See ya in the mornnig 4:30 a.m. my time, looking forward for another success


GO Kings

I'll be on as well. I'm thinking about buying a season pass of ESPN360....Can anyone share their ESPN360 experiences with me? When they had the free trial it was great.

Update
I've bought the NHL Season pass on ESPN360, so now I can watch every game live So happy!!!!

GO KINGS GO!!!!

Our defense is currently 10th and our Power Play is currently 1st. Labarbera is 16th.

Colorado's defense (shots against) is currently 3rd. But their goaltending is really bad. 34th for Raycroft and 40th for Budaj.

Colorado is top in the league in goals but we are only 20th right now.

Should be a really good game.

It's fine, I've bought season package (I used to have mothly last year). I think it's worth it for 89,90 €.The only thing I don't like, it's a flash player comparing with last year when you could watch stream in any other player you wanted. Cause flash has only 2 zooms to set or I am so stupid I can't find settings . Not usable on TV out for me.

If Labarbera plays well, and the PK remains effective, this is a very winnable game.

Expect Simmonds to get into his first non preseason NHL fight tonight. I just expect a chippy game overall.

Yeah it's good stuff, 10 euros more wouldn't be the problem.
Of course I'll alway suport the Kings.

(I have to deliver newspapers around that time though...I always try to do it really fast during the 1st intermission but still...And I almost got an official warning already )

See you in the morning and GO KINGS GO!!!!

Dustin, I would like you to take note of #16 and #94 on the Avalanche please. A nice solid, Pahlsson like check, to either or both would be a nice addition to this game.

Thank you very much in advance.

Is Darcy Tucker number 16? If so, I'd like to see that waste of oxygen knocked out too.

The Kings need to decimate Ryan Smyth. Not quite like what happened last year between JJ and Smyth, that could have ended much much worse than it did, but Dustin, SOD, or Green need to lay Ryan Smyth out HARD! KEEP HIM AWAY FROM JLB!
