NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Kevin “The Flying V” Vanstone tells us Saturday’s things to look out for in the Canucks vs. LA Kings matchup.

Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, and Ryan Kesler were all held without a point during Thursday’s game against the Sharks and will be looking for an opportunity to bounce back tonight in LA.

Richard says the Canucks have a reputation for diving, which is weird because they don’t have either Anze Kopitar or Dustin Brown. Why’d Van City lose?

Richard Hodges previews the Vancouver Canucks vs. LA Kings Jan. 28 matchup. Most likely in net tonight will be Roberto Luongo. Lu has lost 4 of his last 6 regular-season starts in Los Angeles with a 3.68 GAA. Cory Schneider has started the last three games, making 30 saves in Friday’s 5-0 win at Anaheim to open this trip. The return of Manny Malhotra should also help with face-offs, where the Canucks were absolutely brutal last night.
