The beauty of the Los Angeles Kings’ goalie situation is that they can now roll with two experienced, respected goalies. It makes it tougher to tell if Ben Bishop will make his Kings debut tonight or at a later date, however.
(Update: Quick starts on Monday.)
While that fun bonus nugget is in doubt for Los Angeles, it sure looks like Martin Hanzal and Ryan White will play for the Minnesota Wild for the first time. That’s especially welcome, as it sounds like Jason Pominville and Zach Parise might miss tonight’s game.
… Hopefully not with the mumps (update: Yes, sadly that’s the case … ):
Uh oh. If Bishop plays, he might look a little out of place, even from a purely aesthetic standpoint.
Hey, sometimes it’s a work in progress to get used to trades.
Whether it’s Bishop or Quick vs. Hanzal and a possibly under-the-weather Wild team, Monday’s game should be interesting. Check it out on NBCSN, online or via the NBC Sports App.
