Game Preview

So the Kraken got themselves back in the win column against the Rangers in dramatic fashion on Thursday and now must face one of their more tightly contested foes: the LA Kings...who have got to be steaming mad given the night they had last night, dropping a 4-1 wet fart of a game against our neighbors to the North. Ya hate to see it, truly.

Still, that means a young and hungry team that overtook the Kraken while they were reeling are looking to take two very valuable points from our Squids as a get-right game. A win puts the Kraken back into 2nd place in goal differential. A loss gives LA a much needed buffer from future Kraken incursions. We can't have that.

They'll show off why at 7 tonight.
