Note: Don’t expect any recaps from these late games. We all have work and stuff and are in bed long before these end. Sorry.
The Rangers continue their west coast swing tonight with a date in LA. I, for one, look forward to the 97 replays of stupid Alec Martinez. It was five years ago, just stop. Please.
The Kings should be better than their record of 11-18-2, and that’s almost entirely on their goaltending. Remember when everyone said Jonathan Quick was better than Henrik Lundqvist? Yea that aged well. Neither Quick nor Jack Campbell have a SV% over 90%, and with the Rangers shooting the way they are, they should be able to get a bunch of goals. The Kings also don’t score at all. On paper, this has the makings of a potential blow out.
So of course this is going to be a 1-0 game.
Alex Iafallo-Anze Kopitar-Dustin Brown
Jeff Carter-Mike Amadio-Tyler Toffoli
Adrian Kempe-BLake Lizotte-Austin Wagner
Kyle Clifford-Trevor Lewis-Matt Luff
Joakim Ryan-Drew Doughty
Ben Hutton-Matt Roy
Kurtis Macdermid-Sean Walker
Jonathan Quick gets the start.
Rangers Lines (best guess)
PK Forwards: Fast, Kreider, Strome, Howden, Lemieux
PK Defense: Skjei, Trouba, Staal Smith
Henrik Lundqvist gets the start.
Crazy Prediction: A closer game than last time?
Game time is 7pm.
