After a couple of days off the Kings are back on the ice tonight and will play the Phoenix Coyotes at Staples Center. It is early in the season but we all know how important these inner division games can be come playoff time. The Coyotes are two points ahead of the Kings in the standings at the moment so keeping this game in regulation would be ideal for both teams.
Around the NHL there is likely another suspension coming soon, this time to John Scott and the Buffalo Sabres. John Scott gave Boston Bruins forward Loui Ericsson a solid headshot that has more than a few people talking suspension. Scott has an in person hearing with the NHL, a date and time has not been set.

Highlight Of The Night
Here is Ryan Miller throwing a huge pad save on Loui Ericsson. Too bad the Sabres are an all around bad team, Miller should bring in some good talent come trade deadline time.
