Earlier today, in an article here, Kings resident tough guy Kevin Westgarth spoke about playing the Flyers for the second time this season.
Below, a few others weigh in on if they think it’s an advantage…
Jack Johnson – Yes and no. It’s still a hockey game. Everyone knows every player around the league pretty well, just because we’ve watched each other play enough. I wouldn’t say it’s an advantage just because we played them earlier this year. It will be a fun game, but it will be a tough game.
Kyle Clifford – Well, definitely, especially for young guys, you really don’t know teams too well. Some teams you only get to play once. So, now I know what they’re all about. We had our chances in that (first) game too. So, we’re going to come prepared.
Alexei Ponikarovsky – Maybe. But, it doesn’t change anything for us. We know what to expect. They’re on top of the Eastern Conference right now, so we know what to do. They’re a pretty tough team to play against and we have to bring our ‘A’ game.
So, that’s one yes, one maybe and a yes/no combo.
About the only thing clear at the moment is that the Kings need another two points today.
