Notes:

  • #freenickshore #beforetheplayoffsatleast
  • I'm still rubbing my eyes to make sure that's actually Jamie McBain in the lineup. McBain (at least to my eyes) was playing reaonably well through half a season's worth of games. His last appearance in the Kings' lineup was February 25, which you might remember as "the day before Rob Scuderi was acquired."
  • Most likely, he's only playing until Alec Martinez (listed as "day-to-day") returns, but we'll see if he can make an impression.
  • Vancouver has a lot of nerve tweeting this...
  • ... when they're 2-8-1 in their last 11 games. But hey, they've won two in a row! But if you're gonna call out LA for going 2-5-0 in their last seven, give it to me straight.
  • PREDICTION: Vancouver goes to 2-9-1 in their last twelve, doesn't mind too much.
