Game Day Post: Canucks at Kings

Short pregame post today as the Canucks get set to face Marc Crawford and the Los Angeles Kings. Talk about two teams going in opposite directions. Since the start of November, the Canucks are 11-3-3 while the Kings are 5-9-2.

The Kings do have some offense, but that's not their problem. Their 2.76 goals per game is in the middle of the pack and 25.3% powerplay percentage at home is second-best in the league. Their problem is keeping the puck out of the net. This season, they're allowing 3.21 goals per game (second-worst in the NHL) and the almost half a goal difference is fifth-worst in the league. The Canucks, on the other hand, have only allowed seven goals in their last seven games.

I'm interested to see how the Canucks will follow-up that thrilling, albeit disappointing, game on Saturday. This is a tough stretch for sure. They're back on the road for four games - in six nights, no less - and play all three California teams. That said, it's been more than a month since the Canucks lost two consecutive games so I hope that trend continues. (By the way, if anyone's going to all three CA games, drop me an email.)
