Tonight at Staples Center the Los Angeles Kings take on the severely depleted Vancouver Canucks.

The Canuckleheads are without Daniel Sedin, Sami Salo, Pavol Demitra, Ryan Johnson, Jannik Hansen, most likely Kyle Wellwood, and most pleasantly for the Kings, star goalie Roberto Luongo.  Andrew Raycroft will get the start in Luongo’s absence.

Personally, I am happiest than Daniel Sedin is out, since that makes the Canucks only half as ugly.

No changes thus far for the Kings as the Jonathan Quick will take on back-to-back games for the second time this season.

Go Kings!
