Check out the predictions from the “experts” for tonight’s Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks game. As always, thanks to Matt at Life in Hockeywood for putting this together and to Waves at Deep Inside the Kings for being OCD and going over the top with keeping track of everything. You guys rock and have made this a great thing!
On a side note, how ridiculously excited are you for tonight? The Kings have played far below expectations all season but they are still in great shape to win the division. Get into the playoff’s, that’s all that matters. From there we have guys who know what’s required to win and the defense is built for playoff hockey. It all begins with a win tonight!
San Jose (36-25-10, 82pts) at Los Angeles (35-25-12, 82pts)
The Royal Half from The Royal Half
Score: Kings 4, Sharks 3 OT
Reason: At least Four Goals in Four Straight Games. Because It’s The Cup.
Meg Jerrell from Kings Court
Score: Kings 3, Sharks 2
Reason: Because the Sharks are as beatable as they’ve been in 4 seasons, the Kings are showing true playoff desperation, it’s still a 3-2 league AND I’m on a roll with my predictions.
Jon Gillette from Rink Royalty
Score: Kings 4, Sharks 2
Reason: Because it’s what all the cool kids are doing.
Wavesinair from Deep Inside the Kings
Score: Kings 5, Sharks 1
Reason: The Sharks are ripe for the catching. Each team has scored the same number of goals against each other so far this year and that was when the Sharks were good and the Kings sucked. This game should set the tone for not only the end of this season, but the end of the Shark-domination era. The end is near ladies and gentlemen. The end is near. Fear the fin no more!
Matt Murray from Life In Hockeywood
Score: Kings 2, Sharks 0
Reason: The Kings are in the vicinity of The Zone. They are playing their best hockey of the season. And they are finally playing with Balls. That’s right, Balls with a capital B.
Hipcheck from LA Kings Road Talk podcast
Record: Kings 5, Sharks 3
Reason: Kings continue to ooze confidence as scoring comes in bunches and from unlikely sources. Sharks, not prepared to play a Kings team that can actually score, wilt under the pressure and play as if their fin has been cut off and used as the min ingredient in an Asian soup recipe.
