The reigning Stanley Cup champions Los Angeles Kings visit Consol Energy Center tonight. This also means a Sutter family reunion of sorts, and Brandon Sutter and his uncle Darryl had a fun exchange yesterday in front of the press.
With the Voynov suspension and the Kopitar injury, the cap-challenged Kings dressed only 19 skaters in Philadelphia on Tuesday. That allowed them to use an emergency roster exemption to recall winger David Van der Gulik from the AHL.
Beau Bennett returns to practice, and everyone is hopeful he can return to the lineup sometime next week.
Baby Pens beat the Phantoms on a Dea OT winner, and Murray shone brightly with 42 saves. A dark cloud was cast on the win by apparent injuries to Reid McNeill and Derrick Pouliot, who both left the game and there was no immediate update on their status.
Alex Ovechkin has been held pointless for five straight games for the first time in his career. But I hear he's doing beautifully in curling.
From USA Today's Kevin Allen, which offseason free agent signings are deemed to be good value?
Another innovative Halloween costume, this time from Scott Hartnell, who channels his inner Larry Bird.
Anyway, Kings tonight, and it's a Hockey Fights Cancer night in Pittsburgh!
