Kings Gameday: Last Game of the Season

LA Kings (better than expected) @ Boston Bruins (better than expected)

4:00 PST, Fox Sports West

 

This is the very last Kings game of the season.  Oh sure, they're playing 12 more after this one, but this is the last one that really matters.  This game sounds the death knell of the 2008-09 season for the Los Angeles Kings.  The Kings are now 7 points out of a playoff spot with 13 games and it's almost impossible for them to come back; today should kill those final few percentage points that are dancing in the heads of Kings' fans.

The Kings play the Boston Bruins tonight, who are... good?  I don't know what happened in Boston this year, but for some reason I think every single person on their roster exceeded expectations.  Who the hell is David Krejci and why does he have 63 points?  Dennis Wideman has 44 points?  They're probably going to have 6 20-goal scorers this season and have a few more players that could join that club if they get hot.  And yet, absolutely no one is going to pick them to win the Cup.  They're the Utah Jazz of the NHL.

Prediction: Kings lose, 101-85.  Chara has a big game, dropping 31 while grabbing 14 rebounds.
