Game Day Thread: Bruins at Kings

It’s even MORE of the west coast road trip.

Boston Bruins AT Los Angeles Kings

Tim Schaller will return, and Nash will get to nap. Dobby will start between the pipes, leaving Tuukka as the door-man. John-Michael Liles will be a game-time decision (probably spelling Chiller if he appears). Austin Czarnik & Joe Morrow were both sent to Providence today, sparking speculation of a trade.

The Kings have been hot & cold, losing more than they’ve won lately. They are at least 2 points out of a wild-card spot, (the Bruins are down by a tiebreaker themselves). A bright spot for them has been their penalty kill. The Bruins, on the other hand have had a strong power play.
Is this a big game? With the bottleneck for 3rd & 4th in the east, every game is a big game for the Bruins from now on.
