Nashville Predators @Los Angeles Kings

(March 9th 2017)

 Home SHOULD be where the heart is.

 

Kings fans, for a while, were thinking “oh, we have time.”

 

Do we??

 

17 game remaining, we DON’T have time. The time is NOW!!!

 

With another disappointing home 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks at Staples on March 4th fans are starting to sweat a bit. I mean, losing to the Canucks? A team that was in a 4 game slide and reeling. And  AT HOME??

 

The Preds, like the Canucks, come into Staples Center today, 7”30 PST puck drop, on a losing streak. Having lost 3 of their last 4 games the Preds are ripe for the picking….then again, so were the Canucks.

 

All Star defensemen P.K. Subban, with his powerful slap shot from the point is something the Kings should be mindful of. STAY OUT FO THE BOX!! They’re 10th on the PP. Check out their numbers.

Also a threat is C Ryan Johansen, C Filip Forsberg and RW Viktor Arvidsson. In net, Pekka Rinne is all world, but beatable.

 

2 huge points tonight boys….then again, they’re ALL huge at this point in the season.

 

 

As for the lines:

Iginla-Kopitar-Gaborik

Pearson-Carter-Toffoli

Lewis-Kempe-Brown

Andreoff-Dowd-Clifford

 

Forbort-Doughty

McNabb-Martinez

Muzzin-LaDue

Extra: Gravel

 

 

NOTES:

**Nolan and Shore were NOT on the ice today at practice

**Look for Quick to get the start in net tonght.
