NHL 13 Sim of the Week: Kings vs Canucks

After winning the President’s Trophy in 2012, the Vancouver Canucks were upset in the playoffs by the 8th seed LA Kings, who would go on to win the Stanley Cup. After dropping their first game to LA this year, the Canucks are still looking for revenge. Both teams are beginning to hit their stride and are adapting to the condensed schedule, so this should be one to watch. Find the Official NHL®13 Game Prediction below. Watch the LA Kings take on the Vancouver Canucks on March 2nd at 10 ET on the NHL Network.

Keys to the Game

LA Kings

Contain the Twins

Easy to say but hard to accomplish, the Kings need to keep the Sedins to the outside and eliminate the down low passing as much as possible.

Traffic In The Crease

You can’t stop what you can’t see, and that’s the name of the game with two solid goalie options in Vancouver. Pucks on net with traffic in front will create deflection chances as well as chances off the rebound.

Vancouver Canucks

Bury On The PP

It’s no secret that LA isn’t an easy team to score on in recent years, so the Canucks need to take advantage with the extra man. The Kings like to take penalties, and Vancouver has a potent PP that needs to be at its best for this game.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
