Discussion Questions

  1. Likelihood of Vladimir Tarasenko, who has four goals in his last five games, scoring tonight?
  2. If the Kings got a team dog (a service dog in training) like many of the other NHL teams have this year, what would it be named and why? (The Blues’ dog is named Barclay, after former Blues player Barclay Plager.)
  3. Anyone else disappointed that we’ll be denied the Jonathan Quick vs. David Perron hate-fest tonight, since Perron is out of the lineup with an injury?
