Kings Pre-Season Gameday: C'Mon, Man, Just Give Me a Hit!

Los Angeles Kings @ Phoneix Coyotes, 7:30 PM

Phoenix Coyotes @ Los Angeles Kings, 7:30 PM

I'm Jonesin', man.  I got a hit yesterday and now, like a crack addict, I need another.  Luckily the Kings are playing at Staples tonight so my brother and I are going to the game.  The Kings are splitting squads with the Phoenix Coyotes and split their squads in fairly even halves:

@ Staples:                                                                                        @ Jobing:

Smyth-Kopitar-Williams                                                            Frolov-Handzus-Simmonds

Purcell-Loktionov-Moller                                                          Richardson-Gauthier-Lewis

Clifford-Schenn-Mikus                                                              King-Azevedo-Meckler

Clune-Harrold-Westgarth                                                          Ivanans-Cliche-Zeiler


Johnson-Scuderi                                                                        Drewiskie-Greene

Teubert-Hickey                                                                         Campbell-Voynov

Piskula-Doughty                                                                        Bagnall-Martinez


Bernier                                                                                      Ersberg

Jones                                                                                        Zatkoff


As you can see, the Kings generally have one NHL-caliber line, two lines of prospects, and a prospective 4th line.  Dustin Brown, Sean O'Donnell, and Jonathan Quick are all taking the night off.

The Coyotes, meanwhile, are a bunch of cheating cheaters that cheat.  They're squads aren't so much split as they are completely unfair, with Zbynek Michalek, Ed Jovanovski, Shane Doan and Ilya Brzgalov all playing at home and luminaries like Taylor Pyatt, Kyle Turris and Viktor Tikhonov headlining the Staples contingent.  There is one brightside, however:

Jason Labarbera is playing at Staples tonight.

Holy hell is he going to get booed.

Prediction: Kings win, 6-3 at Staples, while the Kings lose, 6-3, at Jobing.
