Today is the one time of the year you can put Alex Frolov and the Habs in the same sentence without discussing the trade rumours that never seemed to go away.  Montreal is in Los Angeles tonight to take on the upstart Kings who are in a dogfight for home ice advantage in the Western Conference playoff picture.

Los Angeles enters this game on a bit of a roll, going 7-2-1 in their last 10; however, they did lose in their last game 4-2 to Nashville.  The Habs are 5-4-1 in their last 10 and are coming off a heartbreaking loss in San Jose on Thursday night.

Team Leaders Montreal Los Angeles
Goals Mike Cammalleri (26) Anze Kopitar (29)
Assists Tomas Plekanec (43) Doughty/Kopitar (37)
Points Tomas Plekanec (60) Anze Kopitar (66)
PIMS Mike Cammalleri (+10) Wayne Simmonds (+19)
+/- Gill/O'Byrne (56) Raitis Ivanans (117)

At this time, neither team has announced their starting goalie.  Jaroslav Halak (17-10-2, 2.56 GAA, .923 SV%) may get the nod as Carey Price (13-19-4, 2.76 GAA, .912 SV%) is coming off a loss although Price was stellar against the Sharks.  For the Kings, Jonathan Quick (36-18-3, 2.51 GAA, .909 SV%) is likely to get the nod.  The league leader in wins has faced the Habs just once, allowing 4 goals on 26 shots in that contest.

Mike Cammalleri and Marc-Andre Bergeron remain out for the Habs while Justin Williams and Andrei Loktionov are out for Los Angeles.
