Game Preview – Kings vs Sharks

Posted on December 23, 2011 by


I’ve been shopping and cooking all day and almost couldn’t get to this preview. I’ve got a ton more cooking to do tonight, so this will be short and sweet.

This is the third of six meetings between the Kings and Sharks. We each have a win previously. The Sharks have 39 points to our 36 but have been on a shooting spree the last three games with a combined 15 goals. It will be fun to see Sutter tonight against his old team. He coached San Jose for 6  seasons under Dean Lombardi.

Few Notes:

  • Sutter said “this isn’t baseball” when asked who the starting goalie is. He declined to answer. What does that mean? I think it means “f-off” lol.
  • We see our old friend Handzus will play tonight. We missed him as he was off the last time we met.
  • Bernier was the only goalie on the ice today but that could mean he is resting Quick for tonight. Not sure
I’ll leave the lines the same as yesterday as I’m not sure what the lineup is.
