LA Kings Players on Second Chance with Flyers

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 JohnsonYes 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 CliffordWell, 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 PonikarovskyMaybe. 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.
