Gameday Soundtrack: What Is The Point Of This
3rd in the Pacific Division
5th in the Pacific Division
Gnarles Barkley – Who Cares
The Kings have won the 4 games that they’ve played against the Canucks so far, and now they’re going for a 5th. While a regular season sweep would be wonderful, even better is the fact that the Canucks currently sit 7 points outside of the final wild card spot. Just a few seasons removed from a President’s Trophy, and now here they are.
Henrik Sedin is said to be back in the lineup after missing games because of a knee injury, but honestly why bother at this point?
Fall Out Boy – I Don’t Care
With the Kings already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs, they’re going to want to make sure that all of their key pieces are healthy and ready to go. After a weird hit on Tyler Kennedy in the game against the San Jose Sharks, Drew Doughty left the ice, never to return again. Considering that these last few games matter so little, and that his injury ended up not being that serious, it’s probably for the best to just let him rest up if he needs it.
With Doughty out and Regehr resting up as well, it’s another go around for Matt Greene as well as Andrew Campbell in his NHL debut.
Likely Andrew Campbell makes his NHL debut tonight. Six years with Manchester. Talked about having a “shiver” when Darryl said he’d be in.

I find this precious.
Akon – Don’t Matter
Though this is to many, a seemingly meaningless game, why do I have a feeling that this is going to be a rough and tumble one? Probably because Canucks v. Kings tend to lean towards fighting and tussling and dumb penalties. Also, the trash heaps that are Zack Kassian and Tom Sestito still exist as people, so there’s that. Let’s just hope that the Kings get out of this with a win and relatively unscathed.
