KBPP Preview: Kings vs Coyotes

The Kings have had a few days off to think about their road trip performance before returning to home ice against an always pesky division rival from Phoenix. Do newcomers Jordan Nolan and Dwight King help the rest of the boys see success back at home? Or will the Desert Dogs take a bite out of the Kings play-off hopes?

Let's see what your favorite Kings bloggers have to say.


The Royal Half from The Royal Half
  • Score: Coyotes 4, Kings 1
  • Reason: Please… like the Kings can score without Rick Nash.
  • Record:1-6

Jon Gillette from Rink Royalty 
  • Score: Kings 4, Coyotes 1
  • Reason: Kids continue to provide spark to the offense and Quick stands on his head in yet another huge division game.
  • Record: 3-4

Bobby Scribe from Surly and Scribe

  • Score:  Coyotes 2, Kings 1
  • Reason: Coyotes are hot and we are not.
  • Record: 4-3

Meg Jarrell from Kings Court
(That's me so you don't need no stinking link --- you're already here!)
  • Score: Kings 3, Coyotes 2, OT
  • Reason: Phoenix won 5 of their last 6 games, but the Kings NEED to win against every Pacific opponents to secure a play-off spot. It will come down to the wire, but they'll find a way to please the Staples Center crowd who will still be reeling at the news of their season ticket price hike.
  • Record: 4-3

Hipcheck from LA Kings Road Talk Radio
  • Score: Kings 3, Coyotes 1
  • Reason: Richards new friends in Nolan and King continue to pay dividends. Their line gets a goal, Kopi and Williams come through again, and one of the 4th liners gets 1 as well.
  • Record: 3-3
Wavesinair from Deep Inside the Kings@deepinsidekings
  • Score: Kings 4, Coyotes 3, shootout
  • Reason: Spectacularly huge game. Tough call on this one. Yotes are playing well but the Kings always play them tight. If practice is any indication, they're due for a run. There's no doubt the Kings match up, and with the new kids on the block, I'm predicting some difficult adjustments by Phoenix. JMFJ gets a goal and the SO winner.
  • Record: 3-4

Matt Murray from Life In Hockeywood

  • Score: Coyotes 3, Kings 1
  • Reason: The bubble pops on King and Nolan, as they get held off the scoresheet. And with that youthful spark, the Kings offense will suffer. Phoenix scores an empty-netter to secure the win.
  • Record: 1-6
