Preview: Game Day #4, Minnesota Wild @ Los Angeles Kings
Forbort debuts and the Kings try to look like the Kings.
Los Angeles Kings vs. Minnesota Wild (Staples Center)
Time: 7:30 Pacific
TV: Fox Sports West
Enemy Reading: Hockey Wilderness
Scratched: Weal, Injured: King, Greene
- The season is not over! In fact, a number of very good teams have started 0-3, including the Kings from two years ago.
- You have the right to panic if things don't change tonight, though. The Kings are rolling out the exact same lines that laid an egg against Vancouver; another disastrous showing is going to raise a lot of questions.
- Questions such as: Wherefore art thou, Jordan Weal? (Answer: on Day 6 of watching film of his turnover against Arizona.)
- One young player who will not be in the press box tonight: Derek Forbort! After five long years of toiling away as a Los Angeles Kings draft pick, he officially becomes a Los Angeles Kings defenseman tonight.
- Forbort will play with Ehrhoff. Forboff or Ehrbort? The remaining pairs are McDoughty and Martinuzz.
- Presented without comment!
