We’ve got another Western conference foe in the building tonight, as LA is in town. They are coming off two straight losses, putting their road record to 4-4. Ryan Miller is likely to get both games, and Rivet is said to be making it back in the lineup (but not sure for who). Kaleta may be ready to return as well.
I like the team the Kings have put together. Doughty and Johnson are a solid foundation on D, Jonathan Quick is in the top 3 in GAA and SP, and they are getting balanced scoring out of their top 2 lines. They are really right where the Sabres SHOULD be this year, and perhaps will be moving forward.
I wonder if perhaps the Kings’ backup goalie, Bernier gets in tonight for yet another backup goalie for the Sabres to face. He had the Monday loss to San Jose, but the Kings play tomorrow in Boston so it is possible.
