Los Angeles Kings 2015-16 Regular Season:
Game 2 vs. Arizona, October 9, 2015, 7:30pm PST

Two nights after their lacklustre season-opener, the Los Angeles Kings are back at it as they set to play host to the Arizona Coyotes. Friday night marks the first of five meetings between the Pacific rivals.

The Kings went 3-0-1 against the Desert Dogs last season with Jeff Carter leading the way offensively with three goals. Jonathan Quick‘s numbers against the Coyotes in 2014-15 were stellar. No. 32 went 2-0-1 against Arizona with a 1.62 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage.

As for the Coyotes, they will be making their regular-season debut on Friday while the promising Max Domi will be making his personal debut in the NHL. He is expected to be on a line with Mikkel Boedker and Antoine Vermette.

As for the Kings, they will need a much better effort on Friday than on Wednesday when they lost 5-1 to San Jose. The Kings scored less than two minutes into the game but lost their offensive juices for the remainder of the night. Some power play success will do the silver-and-black some good as well on Friday after going 0-for-6 on Wednesday.

The Kings also received some good news on Thursday as it was discovered that neither Milan Lucic nor Dustin Brown will be suspended for their late-game antics against San Jose.

A win against the Desert Dogs will be a viable pick-me-up for the Kings as they are gunning for their first win of the season. The promising Coyotes will try to kick off the 2015-16 campaign on the right foot as well.

We will see what will give on Friday.

Enjoy the game!
