A first look, and the series poll
The Kings are scheduled to practice tomorrow at 10 a.m. in El Segundo, in advance of Wednesday’s playoff opener. The last time the Kings played in Vancouver, Darryl Sutter took a couple jabs at the Canucks and those who cover the team. Sutter noted, of the Canucks, “It’s a pretty well-balanced team. We feel fortunate they could fit us into their schedule tonight. … All you have to do is listen to everything. You can’t imagine how they could lose a game, again.’’ Well, the Canucks haven’t lost many of late, even without injured star Daniel Sedin, who is recovering from a concussion. The Canucks finished the regular season by winning eight of their last nine games. We’ll take a more in-depth look at the Canucks tomorrow, but for now, here’s a first-look sampling from the Vancouver newspapers, and then the big question: how do you think the series will go?
