Time: 7.30 PM
TV: Fox Sports West
Avs (projected) lineup:
Landeskog - MacKinnon - O`Reilly
McGinn - Stastny - Parenteau
McLeod - Mitchell - Talbot
Bordeleau - Cliche (!!) - Malone
Jan Hejda - Erik Johnson
Cory Sarich - Andre Benoit
Nate Guenin - Tyson Barrie
Injuries: Alex Tangay (knee), Ryan Wilson (back)

Kings (projected) lineup:
- The Avs are coming off a weird win in Phoenix. Read more over at Mile High Hockey.
- The Avs still lead the league in PDO, despite some very unimpressive possession numbers. The Kings are the exact opposite. So get ready to be really frustrated again!
- Nathan MacKinnon has taken over top line duties with Matt Duchene out. MacKinnon has played well but has been snake-bitten. He's 3rd on the team in shot rate but has a 2.33 sh% at 5v5.
- How great would a Patrick Roy vs Darryl Sutter coach fight be?
Late breaking news: Trevor Lewis has been moved to IR with a mysterious injury and Kyle Clifford has been activated in his stead. So who knows what the lines will look like. One thing we can be sure of though, Darryl Sutter is currently off somewhere pretending he didn't hear about any of this.
- ~Fun With Numbers~:
Prediction: Kings out-shoot the Avs 50-3. Kings lose 2-0. Kings fans do this at their television all night:
|Kings||23||32 (8th, W)||58.1% (1st)||990 (20th)|
|Avs||21||32 (6th, W)||47% (26th)||1035 (1st)|
