The Ducks and Kings will play at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25, and the buzz in Los Angeles and Anaheim is huge over the anticipation of what will be a different experience.
"All our fans are really excited for it and I know the Kings fans are excited for it," Palmieri said. "Outdoor game, 55-60 degree weather at night, it should be a cool experience."
Each time the Ducks and Kings compete against each other, says Fowler, it produces the intensity of a playoff game.
"The crowd's into it no matter where you are," Fowler said. "It just has that special buzz in the air whenever those teams come to town. Those are games you gear up for and really get excited for. It's a special rivalry, especially in California."
