Kings Pre-Season Gameday: Feel the Excitement!

Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks

Citizen's Business Bank Arena- Ontario, CA, 7:30 PST  1150AM

 

The Kings have their 2nd, 3rd, something preseason game tonight against the San Jose Sharks.  Smyth-Kopitar-Williams are getting a break tonight, as is Michal Handzus, while Jarret Stoll is still out with olditis.  Rich Hammond is reporting the lines as follows:


Purcell-Moller-Brown
Frolov-Loktionov-Simmonds
Clifford-Schenn-Lewis
Ivanans-Cliche-Segal

Johnson-Drewiske
O'Donnell-Doughty
Campbell-Mullen

Quick
Bernier


So basically, it's the 2nd line (at least until Stoll gets back), 2/3rds of the 3rd line, and Raitis.  The only real interesting thing to me is that this is the 2nd time Marc-Andre Cliche has centered the 4th line with Ivanans, giving me misguided hope that he has a shot at making the team.  Which led to this thought: if Marc-Andre Cliche and Marc-Edouard Vlasic go into the corner to fight for the puck, how do they decide who gets it?  I like to think they'll joust for it, with Cliche and Vlasic riding Ivanans and Shelley as their respective noble steeds.

On defense, Matt Greene and Rob Scuderi get a break, while Quick will probably play all game in goal.

On the Sharks end... whoops, forgot, I don't give a fuck.

Prediction: Some guy will score, another will do that one thing where they kinda wave their hand at the puck, and some guy will do... you know, that thing, with the stick.
