What to Watch

In maybe the only truly nice storyline to come out of tonight’s game, Blake Lizotte will make his NHL debut. (You can read more about the St. Cloud product here.) Mike Amadio was sent back down to Ontario to make room for him. Jonathan Quick starts. Try not to spend too much time thinking about which of your favorite players won’t be wearing Kings jersey next season.

Marc-Andre Fleury starts for Vegas. Jimmy Schuldt, also formerly of St. Cloud and widely thought of as one of the top undrafted defenseman prospects in college hockey, will make his NHL debut with Vegas.

A loss for the Kings tonight all but guarantees them 30th place and a 13.5% chance at winning the number one draft pick. A win against Vegas on home ice to close out the season would be nice, but tonight, I think even I’m rooting for the tank.
