Kings-Flames Preview: Suttermania Part II

New, 9 comments

Since we last did the two step with the Calgary Flames...

IN: Scott Hannan, Matt Stajan

OUT: Curtis Glencross, one of their top scorers (18 G), didn't finish the game in San Jose. Alex Tanguay (upper body), Brendan Morrison, Derek Smith (ankle), Henrik Karlsson, and David Moss are the other ranks of the injured.

Possible Flames Lineup: With Glencross doubtful, seems that the Flames are going with eleven forwards.

Cammalleri-Backlund-Iginla
Comeau-Jokinen-Jackman
Kostopoulos-Jones-Stempniak
Bouma-Stajan

Bouwmeester-Butler
Giordano-Hannan
Brodie-Sarich
Babchuk

Kiprusoff

Kings Lineup:

Brown-Kopitar-Williams
Penner-Richards-Stoll
Richardson-Loktionov-Lewis
Clifford-Fraser-Hunter

Scuderi-Doughty
Mitchell-Voynov
Johnson-Greene

In net: Apparently Quick again. Both teams are not giving their starters much rest.

Game Outlook: After a tough road trip in which the Kings played three games in four days, they're now discussing how they don't want to ease up just because they're home at last. The schedule is only going to get more exhausting going forward, but at least Darryl Sutter is conscious of the need for energy management.

It'll be interesting to see which team will be more 'up' for this right off the gun. The Flames should want revenge, and the Kings have Darryl in a tweed suit jumping around the locker room shouting AAAAAARE YOOOOOU READDDDYYYYY!?!

OT points are margarine. Regulation wins are butter!
