And so the big 6 game test begins starting tonight and in the next 12 days vs Kings, Ducks, Pens, Blues, Kings, Ducks. Happy LUUUUU is back!
via-NHL.com: Season series: The Los Angeles Kings defeated the Vancouver Canucks twice in November. Anze Kopitar's overtime goal decided the most-recent, 3-2 in Vancouver on Nov. 25, a game the Kings trailed with less than three minutes to go, and one when they were outshot 39-22.
Big story: Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo will return from a lower-body injury and start the weekend road set against the Kings on Saturday; it continues against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.
"They're a big test for our group on back-to-back nights," Luongo told the Canucks website Friday. "They're divisional opponents, we know how a lot of those games go, they're important games, they're teams that we're going to face in the playoffs probably, or hopefully. Those are games that you want to make sure that you establish something good, in their building especially."
