Kings Game Preview 1/20/09

Still haven't made a solid decision on my game preview layout...
what about this:

Time: 5 PST.
On the air: TV: FS West. Radio: 1150.
Where: Xcel Energy Center.
Records: Kings 17-20-7 (5-9-1 road), Wild 23-19-3 (13-8-3 home).
Record vs. Wild: 1-0.
Kings stat of the game: The Kings have a .095 winning percentage when giving up the first goal, worst in the league. The Wild are at .273

20 year old goalie Jonathan Bernier was called up, as Ersberg is day to day with a "lower body injury." I suspect Quick will get the start tonight, and he should turn in a good performance against a struggling Minnesota Wild offense. The place where the Wild have a huge advantage is special teams, as they have a solid power play and one of the best penalty kill units in the league. Jack Johnson is back, as the team slowly gets healthier, and hopefully Gauthier is a scratch.

3-2 Wild with 2 goals from Dustin Brown
That would be considered an offensive explosion for both teams.
