Kings lineup changes: Parse is out with a case of the Salos. Richardson is scratched, because uh…because…oh hell, there’s no reason. They could use his speed.

Trent Hunter joins the third line, while Colin Fraser will center Moreau and Lewis on the fourth. Maybe they assume that Canuck kryptonite is GRIT! I think it’s Timmy Thomas stopping 96.7% of shots in a series, but that’s me.

One request for the bottom six tonight: we don’t have to aim high, like shots or goals or anything. Just…don’t take penalties, guys. Can you all do that?

Uh…

The Nucks scored 5 power play goals against the Blackhawks. Special teams better be ready tonight.
