GAME PREIVEWSeason series -- Detroit swept the young Kings in 2008-09, the two teams last meeting on Feb. 27 was a 2-1 squeaker for the Wings after a pair of blowouts.

Big story -- There's a slight role reversal from previous years, in which a young, inexperienced Kings team would take on juggernaut Detroit with predictable results. The defending Western Conference champions have chugged and sputtered to a 2-3-0 start, getting swept out of Stockholm by the Blues and walking into a Buffalo buzzsaw Tuesday, taking a 6-2 loss in what goalie Chris Osgood called "one of the worst games I've seen us play."

The Kings, on the other hand, went into Madison Square Garden last night one of the hottest teams in the NHL, winning four in a row before losing 4-2 to the red-hot Rangers.

Team Scope
Kings -- L.A. started its six-game Eastern swing on the right foot, beating the Blues and Islanders by identical 2-1 scores. They kept the pressure on a tired Ranger team, especially in a third period where they outshot New York 10-1, but the one guy they couldn't overcome was goalie Henrik Lundqvist, whose 34 saves gave the Blueshirts a 4-2 win at Madison Square Garden, their sixth in a row.

"There's a lot of things you take out of this, but the most important thing to me was the effort," coach Terry Murray said. "That kind of an attitude to bring the emotional and physical game is important not just for a young hockey team but any team in the league.

"It's exciting for us. We're a young hockey club that's really excited about the challenge of going on the road and an opportunity to play well together and just get to know each other. Detroit is one of the better teams in the game so we have to bring the same kind of work ethic."

Red Wings -- Getting swept in Sweden, the home country of many Wings players, was not a good thing, but it looked like the team was bouncing back nicely with wins against the Blackhawks and Caps at the Joe. Then they took their first North American road trip to Buffalo -- and the Sabres blitzed the Wings for four even-strength goals in a span of 6:43 of the second period as the Sabres rolled on to a dominant 6-2 win.

"Everyone says, 'Ah, just wipe it under the carpet and forget about it,' " Osgood told the Detroit Free Press. "But you can't forget about it when you play like that. That's not right. That's not what we're about. We gotta correct it."

Who's Hot -- Ryan Smyth has now scored at least one point in each of the Kings’ first six games and has 5 goals and 4 assists this season. Jonathan Quick was in nets for the first two wins of the Kings' road trip, allowing one goal in each.

Stat Pack -- The Kings last beat the Red Wings at home on Feb. 7, 2008, scoring four third-period goals in a 5-3 victory. L.A. is 3-16-5 against Detroit since they split the season series in 2001-02.

Puck Drop -- The Kings' road show makes another stop in a historically tough venue.

Looking forward to seeing Jack.

Weird for me to ever root against the Wings, but tonight is that rare exception.

GO KINGS!

I think the Wings will be firing on all cylinders tonight, ready to rebound from the debacle in Buffalo. And the Kings will be tired.

Even with the absence of Datsyuk, I've got a bad feeling about this one.

I think we'll be fine if we stay out of the penalty box. Our 5 on 5 play has been absolutely stellar so far.

Agreed. We won't win by more than 2 or 3 goals tops.

Kings need to play smart, execute and not worry about trying to run the Red Wings into the ground. Stick to the game plan and lay on the physical whoopin' on a more oportune date. Put Lewis in for Ivanans and play the 4th line about 10 minutes or so. Detroit is not "Detroit!!!" anymore, regardless of injuries. A win tonight will be a nice bounce back for the guys. Goooooooooooooooo Kings!

Let's Go Kings!!! Lookin' for some bounce back from yesterdays game. Hopefully they are a bit pissed off and if they have any legs left over from last nights game I like the Kings chances, even though it's Detroit.

We HAVE to break them..............

Every team who tries just to outplay them with hockey skills will lose.
We have to play their bodys every second.
They have to be feared to touch the puck.
Brown has to deliver his checks on Zetterberg.
And there is absolute no reason to dress Ivanans. Bring back Lewis instead

Finally there is a day when we have real chance to beat them...

grab it boys...... Go KIngs

Luckily for the Kings, the Wings will be without star center Pavel Datsyuk, has an “upper body injury”, per Larry Murphy on NHL Live today. I’m going to assume that his “upper body injury” is a case of sore nipples. Why? Because I can.

well if they're gonna be vague with the injury descriptions, might as well be creative with the assumptions!

The Kings have done so badly against the Wings for so long, it's hard to be confident about the game...

Wasn't this the same sentiment before the Sharks game?

Not really. The Kings have done pretty decently against the Sharks over the years(kinda like the Ducks).

I'd say the sentiment was the same before the Phoenix game, only we were so hopped up on a new season that it kind of pacified it. Kings traditionally lose against Phoenix much like the Kings have traditionally lost to the Red Wings for almost the last 10 years.
