Here are what the lineups for the Kings and Blues likely will look like tonight when they meet in Los Angeles. It's the Kings' first game at home since a Sept. 25 preseason game against the Ducks.
In addition to the opening-night festivities, the wives and girlfriends of Kings players will sell "Love for Lokomotiv" bracelets near section 103 of Staples Center for $10 each to benefit the families and children of the KHL team members that were killed in a plane crash Sept. 7.
It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy. Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
