Kings-Blue Jackets Preview: Positively

There have always been Kings fans at Cold Comfort Farm...

IN: Interim coach Todd Richards

OUT: Ex-coach Scott Arniel; Jeff "Rumor central" Carter (shoulder); James Wisniewski (ankle), Mark Letestu (hand), Kristian Huselius (lower body), Radek Martinek (concussion), Nikita Nikitin (knee).

Game outlook: All right. The Blue Jackets got their asses handed them in San Jose, and now they're about as happy as a hornet's nest shot by a BB gun about it. A hornet's nest shot twice. Someone's going to punch Clifford in the eye.

The Kings lost in regulation last time out against (oh my gosh) these same Blue Jackets. This is causing a lot of handwringing, like the outcome was impossible or something. Guess what? Every game is up for grabs. Don't be that way.

The Kings still had double the scoring chances against them. This is a good thing.

Be positive instead. It's becoming a Thing!

At least with me.

Carry on.
