Watch out Kings: they’ll be hungry, looking for a new NHL record
The Los Angeles Kings added Pierre-Luc Dubois to their roster this summer with the goal of becoming an NHL powerhouse.

And so far, it’s working: the California team is 2nd in the Pacific Division behind the Vegas Golden Knights and 5th in the overall Bettman League standings.

But it’s the club’s record on the road that’s really impressive this early in the season. The Kings haven’t lost in 10 games away from home, and tonight they’ll be looking to break an NHL record by winning their first 11 duels on the road. And, for the occasion…

They’ll be visiting the Bell Centre tonight to take on the Canadiens.

Good timing!

The Habs had better strap on some spit, because the pace of play is likely to be pretty fast.

The Kings will be hungry to put their name in the NHL record books. And if the CH performs the way it did in the last game between the two clubs, which took place in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, it’s going to be a pretty long night.

Remember that the Canadiens looked like a peewee club against the Kings on November 25. Nothing worked… and we were thinking at the time that this was proof that the Habs still have a long way to go to compete with the NHL’s top clubs.

Still, it’s a good test for Martin St-Louis’s men, who will be looking to win a second consecutive duel.

The Kings are big and tough. Knowing that, I’m looking forward to Jayden Struble’s game, and I’m eager to see if Michael Pezzetta’s insertion into the lineup (in place of Joel Armia) will have the desired effect.

It promises to.

In gusts

– Interesting stuff!

– Joe Veleno is excited at the prospect of sharing a trio with Patrick Kane.

– Bon.

– What a shame…
