Discussion Questions

  1. The Kings are on a five-game winning streak at home. Can they continue?
  2. Antti Raanta, a long-time Kings nemesis, gets the start in net. Can they solve him this time?
  3. If we just pretend this is another game in the Jeff Carter Milestone Celebration, will he score a goal again?
