Notes:

  • Andy Andreoff got one game in place of Nick Shore before the two swapped again. Quick starts again; for the record, we are three weeks away from the next back-to-back set of games.
  • Alec Martinez is still going to be out for a considerable amount of time, though fortunately, he's almost ready to start... riding a bike.
  • The Kings destroyed Edmonton 6-1 in the teams' first matchup, and losing 2-0 in their second matchup, they outshot the Oilers 15-1 in the third period to come back and knot things up. It ended in a shootout, though, so they didn't win.
  • Related: if the Kings don't get six points out of this matchup and the other two contests with Edmonton down the stretch, I will be disappointed. I guess five is okay.
  • PREDICTION: Two points. What else would I predict?
