The Vancouver Canucks are having a nightmare year but have shown some sign of resurgence lately. They’re coming into this game on consecutive wins against the San Jose Sharks and the Anaheim Ducks, two of the top teams in the Western Conference and of course, in the NHL. Their latest wins actually really helped the Kings who find themselves now 3 pts ahead of the Sharks and 1 pt shy from the Ducks. Jannik Hansen has been playing exceptionally well with a goal and 3 assists in the past 2 games. Their leader, Daniel Sedin is sitting at 28 goals in the year, his highest input since the 2011-2012 campaign. He’s only 1 assist shy of his 587th that will square him up with Paul Kariya in the 89th all time assist leader.
The Kings absolutely need to end their 4 game road skid. They will end their season at home with 2 games but tonight’s matchup is critical and strategic. They’re going for their 2nd division title in the franchise history and it will go down to the wire when they battle the Ducks on Thursday at home. Lucky for them, Jeff Carter has been heating up lately, adding up 3 goals and an assist in the past 2 games and 5 goals and 3 assists in his last 5 contests after going 8 games without a goal. Their captain Dustin Brown needs 3 pts to avoid finishing with less than 30 pts for the 4th consecutive campaign.
