For all these years the occasional hockey fan has seen Bryan Murray superior to his brother, Terry Murray, who is the Los Angeles Kings' coach. Terry must be laughing at that thought right about now. Murray has helped in tearing this franchise apart along with former GM John Muckler and Eugene Melnyk. Terry, however is leading the Kings to a great year and are 5 point away from a playoff spot. Tongiht, the two square off after Bryan made the biggest mistake of his life yesterday morning.
The Kings have regrouped as a franchise under young guys like Dustin Brown, Patrick O'Sullivan, Drew Doughty, and Erik Ersberg. Last year, the Sens lost to them 2-0 on two O'Sullivan goals and a shutout by Erik Ersberg. Tonight they face backup Jonathan Quick. It should be a good game.
The Sens pretty much need to contain the firepower offense and get some early good shots on Quick. The Big 3 will have to show up again as well as the Power Play.
Crystal Ball says meagre 2-1 win tonight in Clouston's debut(Spezza, Foligno; Ivanans) with Clouston working well with his players.
Thanks For Reading and Enjoy The Game!!!
