Didn't watch last night's game and won't see this one either but it sounds like last game was great and I was happy with the win. I noticed that the bottom-6 didn't play a lot but I guess with us probably seeing Budaj in net tonight that having them play more tonight is a good idea. Also hopefuly if we do have Budaj in net that he will want to play well against his old team that traded him to us.
If we can play with the same speed as yesterday we stand a good chance but it will be a tough game, Kings have been playing really well.
Just hope Budaj will have a good game..he is a bit of a concern..
Is it confirmed that he'll be starting? Even though he has started on the second nights of back to backs so far, we had a bit of a longer break before the Sharks game so I wouldn't be surprised to see Vasy on the net tonight.
Any chance Vasy actually gets the call tonight? He's had a relatively easy game last night against the Sharks.
There really is only one thing to be said...
LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!
Nah, doubt it. Buda needs a game.
I do think we lose tonight.
I couldn't watch last nights game but I will watch this one.
Easily the toughest game of the year so far. Feels more like a "roadblock" game than a "test" game. LA has at least been giving up a few goals lately.
Probably a letdown game, after the high of last night.
....We might not let you watch anymore. :p
All the signs of one. Second game of a back-to-back playing our back up goaltender against a team who has a style we struggle with.
Seems like a lock for an L to me.
Probably the reason we played Vasy last night. Maximizing the chance of getting points in the first of the B2B.
It's still gonna be interesting how the team will be looking tonight. Coming off a convincing win last night they might be fired up and motivated. Or they'll look drained and coast through this one.
Tonight is a massive test.
I really hope he does I don’t trust Budaj
Vasi can't play 82 games.
Just win baby!
I don’t expect him to
Toughest game so far. I don't think Budaj is as bad as his numbers show, so I'm expecting to see an uptick soon. This is his former team so maybe he has a solid game tonight.
I don’t think it’s fair to say that considering they played last night. I don’t excpect them to have there best game.
I'll say this - I assumed our underlying numbers were going to be super high (especially PDO).
It's really not. PDO is at 102.6, which is obviously over the mean, but... I don't think it's unsustainably high. Last season the Caps led the league with 102.5. Previous season Rangers led with 102.1.
So that's something. I don't think we're ripe for a huge regression.
How the hell is Johnson a -6 ? Every player he's been on a line with is significantly better than that. Like it's actually impressive that he's been on for more goals against than even his own linemates.
I hate that the thought of Budaj in the net tonight makes my stomach churn.
