Who ARE these guys? What do they want? [Game #82 Preview]

Who are they? Your Los Angeles Kings.

What do they want? 100 points with a side of redemption; the highest playoff seed possible.

What's their ****ing problem? Dealing with life after Kopi, scoring power play goals, scoring any kind of goals, giveaways, perimeter play, handsome Finnish stars, generally needing a pep talk from Stuart Smalley

Who the **** do they think they are? (IN) Jonathan Quick will presumably face Ellis again in net. Jonas Hiller dressed as the backup last night, but he hasn't played since he was pulled three weeks ago in Nashville. See Anaheim Calling for more info. (OUT) Scott Parse, Justin Williams, Anze Kopitar, Peter Harrold, Davis Drewiske.

What, are they supposed to be scared? They can handle it. They shut down the Ducks' top line, which was on the ice for nearly half of the game last night. Now they need to add Teemu to the watch list, drive to the net, and get a refill on confidence. And shoot.

I thought we were friends! We are! We only complain on the internet because we care so much.

Yeah, well, wait till they get a load of: The crowd at Staples, which should be revved up and ready to lend them lots of support.

Control your fate already.  You're good enough.  You're smart enough.  And gosh darn it, Bailey likes you.
