Season series: This is the second of three meetings between the clubs this season. The Kings beat the Canucks in a shootout, 3-2, on Jan. 28 in Los Angeles. They also play March 23 in Los Angeles.

Big story: The Kings will try to build on their season-high five-game winning streak against the slumping Canucks, who have lost two straight and have just two wins in their past seven games. The Kings have allowed just six goals in their past five games.

:S I don't like Schroeder on the 4th or Raymond centring the 2nd. Bieksa is game time decision, but I hope he takes the extra day off.

Hoping for a dominant effort!

5-2 Canucks. Henrik, Garrison, Kassian, Higgins, Hansen with the goals. Carter and Kopitar for LA.

10-9 OT win. Bieksa makes his first ever start in goal (perhaps auditioning for the back-up role before a trade) and makes 50 saves on 59 shots. Tanev scores all 10 goals for the Canucks, including three in the last minute of the third.

Strange forward lineup choices by AV
I don't mind the defense though


Edit: Also, 5-1 Nucks

Forward lines don't look too bad, I'm sure AV will change things up if needed. I'm not sure about Alberts on defence, he's a big guy but seems to play small.

Schroeder will hopefully be switched with lapierre, but I guess against the kings we need a bigger checking line.

im calling a 3 fight game for Sestito for his Canuck debut. :P

1st fight vs Greene
2nd fight vs Nolan
3rd fight vs Richards

he saves Clifford for Kassian so he can rag doll him like he did in their junior days haha.

Kings are playing well. We aren't. Something's gotta give. If our boys play a full 60 min, we should have a good shot if winning.

4-2 for the boys in blue.

Ballard
Burrows
Hamhuis

Kopitar

i think whats going to end up happening is lapierre will retain his spot,but schroder will take over 2nd line duties and a winger will be pushed down.

The lineup looks weird, I think it should something like this:

Daniel-Henrik-Burrrows

Raymond-Schroeder-Kassian

Booth-Higgins-Hansen

Sestito-Lapierre-Weise


I mean Higgins used to play Centre, right? Why put Raymond on Centre?

Wtf is with these line combinations, this is how I see it:

Best line in NHL
3rd line through and through
2nd liner - 3rd/4th liner - 2nd/3rd liner
4th liner - 3rd liner - 4th liner


Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Alex Burrows
Chris Higgins - Mason Raymond - Jannik Hansen
David Booth - Maxim Lapierre - Zack Kassian
Tom Sestito - Jordan Schroeder - Dale Wiese



Not sure why Higgins and Hansen continue to stay in the top 6, while Booth and Kassian continue to stay in the bottom 6, also not sure what in the hell AV is thinking putting Schroeder on the 4th line.

Although I am excited to see what Sestito brings, unfortunately I don't see us winning, LA is on a hot streak and we haven't looked this bad in a long time.

4-3 for LA is my prediction.

Any logically person would like to see something like this, not sure where AV's head is at. Personally I want to see:

Daniel - Henrik - Burrows
Booth - Schroeder - Kassian
Raymond - Higgins - Hansen
Sestito - Lappierre - Weise

Could switch ZK9 and MR21 but basically that, I want to see Booth get his shot in the top 6, he has looked good, and this is an opportunity for Schroeder and Kassian to really breakout and pick up there games aswell.

I hate to say this 20 games in, but this is a MUST WIN game. At the very least it's a measuring stick. Kings are on a roll, Canucks aren't. We need to turn the negative news around quickly.

Game is on Saturday, March 2nd. :bigblush:

Other than that, great game-day thread. 4-3 Canucks. Kass with the game winner late in the 3rd. Burrows with 2 others. and the other will come from.... Mr. Garrison. :emot-parrot: - With the assist going to Mr. Hat.

From what I understand, the OP is correct in putting Raymond at center between Higgins and Hansen. The only question mark for me is the placements of Shredder and Lappy but who really knows what the hell is going to happen. All of the lines are going to get shifted mid-game anyways.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I think Schroeder should be centering the 3rd line myself. Kind of wasted on the 4th
