Ducks Kings primer – Where is all this confidence coming from?

Who will score the first goal of the night for the Kings?

Here’s what the players had to say when asked that question yesterday after practice. It should be noted that all season long, the only player to not take somebody else was Doughty. He went with himself for a game about a month ago (but, didn’t turn the trick).

This time around, the whole room was feeling lucky…

Jarret Stoll – “I’ll take myself, I’m due.”

Kyle Clifford – “I feel pretty confident in myself, I take me.”

Trevor Lewis – “I’m going to say myself.”

Jeff Carter – “Probably me…I want it, I need it”

Doughty – he just pointed at himself and said, “Me!”

Brad Richardson – “I have a pretty good feeling about myself.”

Not so sure how that’s going to be possible from the press box, as he’s scheduled to be a healthy scratch.

Richardson went on to say, “I’ll give an honorable mention to Carts. But, most likely, it will be me.”

Colin Fraser, who sits next to Richardson in the locker room at TSC was willing to double down on the idea, chiming in with “It’s going to be Richie, on a pass from me.”

Dwight King had other ideas – “I’ll go with my right winger, Carts. I think he’s due. He had quite a few shots the last game and he’s bound to have one go in.”
