Game Preview

The Opposition: Nucks Misconduct


Los Angeles Kings

With the Kings playing a back-to-back this weekend, it’s debatable who gets the start. Possibly Budaj, in order to save Petersen for the Oilers tomorrow? No indications out of practice, so your guess is as good as ours. Good to note: Jonathan Quick is getting close.

Vancouver Canucks

No changes expected for the Canucks, who played last night in San Jose. Jacob Markstrom will probably get the start in net.
