LINEUP/INJURY NOTES
Head coach Dan Bylsma had a few notes for the media...
  • Jeff Zatkoff starting in goal vs. former employer
  • Paul Martin resumed skating. Next X-ray this weekend
  • Bylsma said the LA media is the best dressed in the NHL. Phil Bourque makes a sad gesture. Bylsma updates, "LA is the best dressed visiting media in the NHL."

We'll open the day with my second favorite artist of all time: Elliott Smith. Here is "Angeles," which is about the city of LA.

Enjoy.
