Vancouver @ Los Angeles - 10/30/08 - 7:30 PM

.


Los Angeles Kings
(3-4-1, 7 pts)

VS.



Vancouver Canucks
(4-5-0, 8 pts)


7:30PM (PST) @ Staples Center Los Angeles, CA


TV Broadcast: FSN-W (Home), PPV (AWAY)
Radio Broadcast: KTLK 1150 AM, XM 205

GAME PREIVEW Home had been the Vancouver Canucks' refuge early this season, but after Tuesday night's game at GM Place, the result was the same as their previous three on the road - a loss.

The Canucks look to end their recent road woes on Thursday night at Staples Center against the Los Angeles Kings.

Despite scoring 2.67 goals per game while going 2-4-0 during a recent six-game road trip, the Canucks had outscored opponents 12-3 in their first two home games. However, on Tuesday against Boston, Vancouver lost 1-0 as Tim Thomas stopped 31 shots for his second consecutive shutout overall and second in as many career starts against the Canucks.

"At the end of the day, our top offensive players have to find a way to score goals," Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said.

Alex Burrows and Mason Raymond were each denied a team-high five times for Vancouver (4-5-0), currently last in the Northwest Division.

"We all believe we can score and put pucks in the back of the net," said Raymond, who, along with Burrows, is one of four with a team-leading three goals. "I think we played pretty well defensively and it was a tight-checking game. They play that trap and it was tight-checking, but goals are going to come."

The Canucks hope the goals will come soon for Daniel Sedin. He scored two in a 5-4 overtime win on Oct. 11 against the Flames, but has none in seven games since.

Though he failed to score in any of four games against the Kings in 2007-08, Sedin led Vancouver with 29 goals.

Roberto Luongo allowed a first-period goal to Michael Ryder, and finished with 29 saves against Boston. Luongo - who has a 3.00 GAA in eight starts this season - has given up just five goals while winning his last three games in Los Angeles.

Playing the opener of a season-high seven-game homestand, the Kings (3-4-1) fell 4-3 in a shootout to Detroit. The defending Stanley Cup champions tied the game with 1:54 left as Valtteri Filppula snapped a shot past Jason LaBarbera off a misplaced clearing pass from Denis Gauthier.

"It's a play that you would like to have back and do over again," Kings coach Terry Murray said. "You're trying to do the right thing on the breakout and find the center ice man. But there was a mistake, unfortunately, and it ended up being a goal that gives them all kinds of life."

After the Kings were outshot 37-19, Murray made a number of moves on Wednesday. Kyle Calder, who scored his first goal of the season on Monday, drops to the second line, while left winger Patrick O'Sullivan, who has three goals and three assists, will play on the top line with Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar.

Brown and Kopitar are tied for the team lead with seven points.

"We have a lot of chemistry and have been successful together," O'Sullivan, who had 22 goals and 31 assists in 2007-08, told the Kings' official Web site. "It is something we can go back to. I am excited. They are the top guys on this team and we are close off the ice as well. It should be fun tomorrow."

Ryan Kesler, who leads the Canucks with six assists and nine points this season, scored the game-winner in the last meeting as visiting Vancouver posted a 2-1 overtime victory on March 10. The Canucks have won six of their past nine in Los Angeles.

I could not predict the winner of the Red Wings game. It wasn't coming to me and the hockey gods were not talking. I predicted a very close game. It was a very close game.

I can predict this one. The hockey gods have spoken.

We

will

win

Guaranteed.

Things will probably get ugly. Hoping for a big game from Brown.

Kings 4-2 (Doughty with goal #2 for the season)

If I bet $100 on the Kings and lose are you going to reimburse my loss?

If so....then let me call my bookie, that is a risk free bet.

Nice GDT.

For those without TV access, NHL Gamecenter has a free preview today, so you should be able to catch it online.

Don't know if he'll give up 5, but he usually doesn't fare too well against the Kings.

And surprisingly, his numbers are very similar to Jason Labarbera's.

What's more surprising is that his name is being mentioned in the same breath as Roberto Luongo's.

yeah, but at least if you had your own site you could troll endlessly with pictures of a certain goalie getting scored on in an actual nhl game believe it or not. that would be so awesome, amirite?

I will be watching the game for sure. In Finland it will 4.30 AM but who cares, tomorrow is Saturday so I can sleep on late. I hope the Kings will win, this is definitely a game they should walk away with two points. Also nice to see Luongo on the Vancouver goal, haven´t seen him play too many times.

They both start with "L." That's where the similarities end.
