Game outlook: The Kings should be battling fatigue after their hard-fought victory in Chicago last night, but hopefully Sutter's active presence behind the bench will help keep them focused. It was great to see them make a strong push in the second against a very strong team; Chicago only tied them in shots after the Kings protected a two goal lead.
With Mason and Jonathan Bernier in net, it'll be a shootout at the Backup Corral. Let's hope the team pulls together and provides JB some goal support. They're making good progress toward a playoff spot, but they simply can't afford any excuses.
