Kings Lineup: Everything the same, except that Bernier's in net. Not a surprise considering they finished another game less than 24 hours ago.

Bernier's numbers have taken a hit due to infrequent starts and coming in for relief in the disastrous Detroit game, but he's delivered several quality starts for the Kings. It would be nice to see him rewarded with more goal support for the second game in a row.

Plus, Penner's in the house! I bet the Edmonton reporters are running around flapping their hands with excitement. I hope he keeps trolling.

As for me, I'm still trying to figure out whether we should call him Hotcakes, Coldcakes, or Mr. Butterworth.
