LOUI WILL BE BACK SOON
But probably not tonight. In the meantime, the Bruins are set to face off against the Kings, coming off that really gross loss to the Ducks. Get your stuff together, McQuaid!
The Kings sit one point behind Boston in the overall standings, and sixth in the Western Conference. Their power play is only slightly worse than Anaheim's (which, clearly, doesn't mean much if you're the Bruins), and their PK is 0.3% better than Boston's. Six of their wins this year have come via the shootout, giving them just 20 ROW. They've struggled a bit as of late, going just 4-5-1 in their last 10, and most recently they lost to the Minnesota Wild in a shootout.
Their roster is studded with players that local AHL fans should know well: Tyler Toffoli, Jordan Nolan, Slava Voynov, Alec Martinez, and Jake Muzzin all have recently played in Manchester, NH. And of course, former Flyers duo Mike Richards and Jeff Carter. Watch out, David Krejci.
The game starts even later than Tuesday night's game, so be sure to get a nap in.
