Only four games tonight in the NHL, but a compelling one in Los Angeles, where the Kings will try to maintain their perfect record this season against the Canucks.
L.A. and Vancouver have met three times already, with the Kings winning twice in regulation and once in overtime. They’ll meet one more time after tonight, on April 5 at Rogers Arena.
Coming off a big win over St. Louis on Friday, the Canucks are likely to get defenseman Alex Edler back in the lineup versus the Kings. Edler hasn’t played since Dec. 3, when he was hurt in a game versus the Predators. (Update: Vancouver has reassigned d-man Frank Corrado to AHL Utica. Pretty much guarantees Edler’s a go.)
The last time the Kings and Canucks met, less than two weeks ago on Jan. 4 at the Staples Center, Los Angeles dominated possession, outshooting Vancouver 49-28 in a 3-1 win.
In case you haven’t heard, these teams really don’t like each other.
