Game #10 - at Los Angeles Kings

Pittsburgh Penguins (6-3-0, 12 pts) at Los Angeles Kings (4-8-2, 10 pts)

The Kings are tied for the most games played in the league (14) while the Pens are tied for the fewest games played (9). Hopefully this means the Pens will be the more refreshed team. The Kings played 5 games in 7 days last week, losing all 5. Their most recent game, however, was a 4-1 pasting of the Rangers on Monday.

The Kings special teams are almost opposite - their PK is pretty good, while their power play has been quite bad. They've been alternating between Garon and Cloutier in goal, though I suspect we'll see Garon tonight, seeing as how he's played pretty well the last two games.

The Pens need to get two points tonight if they have any hope of having a successful trip to the West Coast. Their next two games are much tougher, against San Jose and Anaheim.

I'm looking for a solid road effort, with Colby Armstrong's first goal of the year.

Let's Go Pens!

I was at the game - big Kings fan. Awesome to see the pens though. They are young, quick, and talented. I love watching them on tv, so to see them live was special! Malkin and Crosby were amazing!
