Continuing with the theme of placing pictures where they have no business… Even though we’re all Kings fans, isn’t this a great sight?
Los Angeles (36-25-12) vs. St. Louis Blues (46-20-8)
The Royal Half from The Royal Half
Score: Kings 3, Blues 2
The LA Kings get two goals from Mark Messie…. I mean Dustin Penner and beat the Blues.
Meg Jerrell from Kings Court
Score: Kings 3, Blues 1
Reason: Thanks to a valiant effort from the Quacks, the Western Conference leading Blues are coming in to Staples with little less energy and a loss under their belts. The Kings are in attack mode and the Pacific Division is in sight. The power of Hanks is with us!
Jon Gillette from Rink Royalty
Score: Kings 4, Blues 3
Reason: Well, if the Ducks can do it… Honestly, I don’t care about the score anymore, I only care about the 2 points in the standings and making a statement against potential playoff opposition.
Wavesinair from Deep Inside the Kings
Score: Kings 3, Blues 2, shootout
Reason: St. Louis is vulnerable after losing 2 of their last 3 and going into the second half of their back2back tonight. However, they will be ready. But so will the Kings, who have finally shown they want to move past their notoriously inconsistent tendencies. The first two games of this match up resulted in 5 goals total for each. The third game was a Blues shutout 1-0. Tonight?
Matt Murray from Life In Hockeywood
Score: Kings 2, Blues 0
Reason: The Kings may be the hottest scoring team in the West since Feb. 25, going 9-3, but the Blues have been on fire as well, going 10-4 in that same span. But the Blues have been tapering off since clinching a playoff spot. Still, this will be a defensive struggle, as both teams are 1-2 in goals against. My guess is the Kings will be able to crack the seal at least twice, allowing Quick to do what he does best.
Hipcheck from LA Kings Road Talk podcast
Score: Kings 4, Blues 2
Reason: If the ducks can hang a 4 spot on the Blues so can the Kings given their recent scoring mojo. I see a very physical game with at least a couple of fighting majors handed out while I once again try to shake
the vision of bad memories involving Geoff Courtnall.
