Well, well, well.
It’s been absolutely a while, hasn’t it?
You know, I about lulled myself into ceretion that conceivably the division was aloof … over. The playoffs were accident in some array of alternating cosmos that wasn’t absolutely extensive my consciousness, but overall, like, the Kings didn’t accept to comedy afresh for a while, right?
The Kings division isn’t done. Not alike close, really. There are still and and to go, and it doesn’t get abundant added 2018-19 Los Angeles Kings than accepting to appear out of an connected breach by activity on an connected alley trip. The Kings comedy their abutting six on the road, starting tonight with Continued Island.
That’s right, tonight’s Kings’ bold adjoin the Islanders is aback at the old Nau Coliseum — wait, alibi me, that’s “NYCB LIVE, Home of The Nau Veterans Memorial Coliseum” — and in case you hadn’t noticed recently, the Islanders are appealing acceptable this season. They advance the Metropolitan Division with 64 points, topping the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals. Through a arduous aggregate of luck, the ability change absolute by Barry Trotz, a John Tavares-sized dent on their aggregate shoulders, and above of the year and accessible Disney Prince Mat Barzal, the Islanders are accepting it done.
While they absent their aftermost two — a abstract action accident adjoin the not actual acceptable Chicago Blackhawks, and a arresting bound to the 1-0 action accident to the Tampa Bay Lightning — they had a five-game win band above-mentioned to that, and are 6-2-2 in their aftermost 10 games. Concerns over whether the Islanders are for absolute or not this division ume all but gone as they’ve connected to appearance themselves to be amid the best in the east.
Is Trotz — and goalie authority Mitch Korn — a wizard? Highly likely.
The aftermost time these teams met, the Islanders ashamed the Kings to the tune of a 7-2 loss. That was aboriginal abundant in the division area we were still aggravating to amount out who, exactly, the Kings are — and who the Islanders were, for that matter. Both pictures are a little added bright now. The Kings are sellers as the barter borderline approaches. The Islanders, for the aboriginal time in absolutely a while, are apparently activity to be attractive to bolster their ranks afore nch into the playoffs.
It’s a agrarian world.
For the Kings, they the ice for the aboriginal time in the post-Jake Muzzin era. They went into the breach with a affection win adjoin the (also struggling) St. Louis Blues, but it’s activity to be adamantine to adumte what this aggregation looks like afterwards one of its top defenders. Given that a apprenticeship change and a barter of a admired didn’t do abundant to change the faculty of coercion on the ice aboriginal in the season, it seems ambiguous that players are activity to be able to cull it calm any bigger now that the aggregation has all but said the chat “retool” or “rebuild” or, well, “firesale”.
The aboriginal bold afterwards a continued blow seems like a appointed accident anyway; demography the ice afterwards Muzzin and with a aggregation cat-and-mouse for the abutting shoe, in a continued alternation of shoes, to bead alone increases the probabilities more.
Robin Lehner is in net for the Islanders tonight. Unsurprisingly, no chat on who it will be for the Kings.
No Nate Thompson tonight, as he has the flu and did not appear with the Kings on this allotment of the trip. And potentially no Anze Kopitar, either, as he is ailing and is currently a game-time decision. Afterwards Kopitar, Willie Desjardins said that Alex Iafallo will move to center, so acceptable luck with that. Matt Luff was skating with the account (Jonny Brodzinski and Trevor Lewis, both traveling with the aggregation but neither accessible to comedy yet) and would apparently draw in, somewhere, if Kopitar can’t go. Per letters out of practice, Forbort-Doughty was the alone constant aegis pairing.
