The Kings have kept up their new-found scoring ways even without Jeff Carter, but even so, Sutter is demanding more from Brad Richardson.

Despite their loss to the Kings last week, the Oilers haven't been in tank-mode, even with a depleted blue line. But there can be no excuses tonight. The Kings need to play physical, aggressive, and yet disciplined hockey. A regulation win would boost their odds of making it to the postseason to 95%.
