LA Kings: Civil War, the WCH Edition

by Tricia Friedman / NHL.com

It's finally here. Canada vs Europe. Doughty and Muzzin on one side, Kopitar on the other. A Kings Civil War.

With Marion Gaborik out, Kopitar will be the sole Kings player on the ice for Team Europe. Gaborik suffered a foot injury during the second period of Europe's overtime win against Sweden, but he was able to finish the game.

"We didn't think we'd make it [this far]," said Kopitar, after their win. "But there's a lot of great guys in that locker room."

 

 

The question now: how will he lead Team Europe against the dominating force that is Team Canada? Tune in tonight at 5PM PST for the first of three games in the World Cup of Hockey final.

Join in on the conversation with hashtag #WCH2016 on Twitter, and chat with the LA Kings directly your feelings on tonight's finals. 

We leave you now with some Kopi, mic'd right from the ice...
