KBPP Preview: Kings vs Flames

The stakes tonight couldn't get any higher for the Kings. After giving up a spot in the standings to the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday, our boys find themselves in 8th position in the Western Conference standings with the same problem against the Calgary Flames. A loss tonight would drop the Kings out of playoff position and move the Flames into the 8 seat.

Will the Kings rise to the occasion tonight? Or will we witness another Staples Center flame-out? Let's see what your favorite Kings bloggers have to say.


The Royal Half from The Royal Half
  • Score: Calgary 3, Kings 2
  • Reason: It's a 3-2 league and Brent wants to be just like his big brother, Darryl.
  • Record: 2-6

Jon Gillette from Rink Royalty 
  • Score: Kings 3 - Flames 2 in OT
  • Reason: Well, the Kings HAVE to win, don't they? But, of course the Flames will get a point. Let's not get too out of control and separate from the pack. Wouldn't want Kings fans to sleep easy.
  • Record: 3-5

Bobby Scribe from Surly and Scribe

  • Score: Kings 3, Flames 2
  • Reason: Because hope springs eternal
  • Record: 5-3

Meg Jarrell from Kings Court
(That's me so you don't need no stinking link --- you're already here!)
  • Score: Flames 3, Kings 1
  • Reason: Because this team refuses to obey my expectations and I'm willing to have MY record take a hit if it means this team can FINALLY find a way to score.
  • Record: 3-5

Hipcheck from LA Kings Road Talk Radio
  • Score: Flames 2, Kings 1
  • Reason: Sadly the scoring woes will not end, nor will they ever. Wayne Simmonds will have a better chance of scoring for the Kings tonight.
  • Record: 3-4
Wavesinair from Deep Inside the Kings@deepinsidekings
  • Score: Kings 3, Flames 1
  • Reason: There's no reason to believe this game will be much different than the last. We'll hold the Flames to 1 goal, no doubt. But will the Kings score one of their own? Let alone 2? All signs point to hell yes! They'll bury those chances this time because, well, because I say so! :)
  • Record: 4-4

Matt Murray from Life In Hockeywood

  • Score:  Kings 2, Flames 0
  • Reason: Coming off an embarrassing loss to divisional rival Phoenix, coach Sutter will have this squad ready to respond. After all, the defense is still working. Quick is still working. The PK unit is still working. Let's hope the boys can put all the trade talk on the back burner and unleash hell.
  • Record: 2-6
