What everyone else will be watching for: Can the Kings score?

Stat of the Day: The Kings have not scored in three games.

Key Players: Teddy Purcell and Scott Wilson. Purcell is finally back in the lineup and will be playing on the first line, hoping to score a goal for the Kings, who haven’t scored in three games. Wilson, who you probably have never heard of, is skating with Sidney Crosby. He’ll be looking to break a personal four-game scoring drought, which is one game longer than the Kings’ scoring drought.

Prediction: This is the most I ever attempt to reverse jinx within a single preview.
