Pittsburgh Penguins (8-3-3) @ Los Angeles Kings (6-4-2)

10:30 pm/et

TV: ROOT

Staples Center - Los Angeles, CA

The Kings are quite the hockey team: Simon Gagne, Anze Kopitar, Dustin Penner, Dustin Brown, Jack Johnson, Drew Doughty and more. Plus, Mr. Leadership Mike Richards and The Piece Rob Scuderi. 

Season Series: 0-0-0

Last meeting that counted: February 10, 2011. Pens won 2-1 [OT].

What we said in our recap:

Pens didn't play a trap for this game. They were all-systems-go. They relied on team speed, some scoring, solid defense, solid goaltending, and great penalty killing to win this game. Actually, that's what they've been doing all year.


Know Your Enemy: The Royal Half

What they're saying:

While former King and current Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma has kept his team beyond competitive over the last season and 14 games with a depleted lineup, many Kings fans are starting to express that current head coach Terry Murray is underachieving with a loaded lineup. And at 44 seconds into his press conference after Thursday's uninspiring loss to the Edmonton Oilers... Coach Murray wanted you to be sure to know how much of the LA Kings success has come from the play of Dustin Penner.

The Royal Half is a quality blog.


Pittsburgh Penguins Notes:

Jordan Staal & Paul Martin are game-time decisions.

Sidney Crosby went to a doctor.

He'll resume practice on Monday.

Los Angeles Kings Notes:

Dustin Brown likes Call of Duty.

The Kings have trouble scoring.

Wayne Gretzky sucks.
