KBPP Preview: Kings vs. OIlers

And then there were three. Three games until the regular season ends. Three chances to win and guarantee a spot at the top of the Pacific Division. Three periods tonight to get two more critical points towards a third playoff berth in 3 seasons.

Can the Kings keep their spot at the top of the Pacific? Or do we need to worry about slipping without Jeff Carter in the lineup? Let's see what your favorite Kings bloggers have to say.


The Royal Half from The Royal Half
  • Score: Kings 3, Oilers 2
  • Reason: Jeff Carter scores 3 goals Roy Hobbs style before his leg falls off and he's done forever.
  • Record: 17-12

Jon Gillette from Rink Royalty 
  • Score: Kings 4, Oilers 2
  • Reason: The Kings will win the division! The reward for this accomplishment; a first round date with the Hawks who have playoff experience on their side but a team the Kings have played well against this season.
  • Record: 16-13

Meg Jarrell from Kings Court
(That's me so you don't need no stinking link --- you're already here!)
  • Score:  Kings 3, Oilers 1
  • Reason: The Kings only have two home games left, losses aren't an option and the Oilers will be on their second game on back to back nights. We got this!
  • Record: 16-13

Hipcheck from LA Kings Road Talk Radio
  • Score: Kings 4 Oilers 1
  • Reason: Kings refuse to lose and put another 4 spot on the board.
  • Record: 14-15

Paul Armbruster from Kings News Daily (aka Wavesinair from Deep Inside the Kings@deepinsidekings)
  • Score: Kings 5, Oilers 2
  • Reason: The Oilers might not have any quit in them, but when Ryan Whitney said after the last game, ‘It was like they had seven guys out there,’ I have to believe Edmonton yelled a collective ‘Uncle’ for the Kings this season. Time for another whoopin.
  • Record: 17-12

Matt Murray from Life In Hockeywood

  • Score: Kings 2, Oilers No score
  • Reason: Quick is rested and is sure to be on top of his game. The Oilers don't figure to put a lot of rubber on net, thanks to the Kings' defensive play. I'm guessing of the three games remaining, tonight's game would be Quick's best shot for the thumb. (If you don't follow, don't worry about it. Nothing to see here. No jinxing here. Nope.)
  • Record: 16-13
