The Kings are back on the ice tonight and will host the Minnesota Wild. It is the Kings’ first game since opening their current home stand with a 3-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks, breaking a five-game losing streak. It was also Jonathan Quick’s first game back off of the injured reserve, he looked like he did not miss a step turning away 27 shots for the win.
There will be a total of ten games played tonight and in those ten games six other Pacific Division teams will be in action. The San Jose Sharks will face off against the Nashville Predators, the Edmonton Oilers will play the St. Louis Blues, the Phoenix Coyotes will take on the Calgary Flames in an all Pacific affair and the Anaheim Ducks will battle the Boston Bruins.
