Prediction Panel: Mar. 28

Kings' Prediction PanelBoth the Kings and Flames are evenly matched and are both scrambling for a playoff position. The Flames just snapped a five-game skid on Monday, while the Kings are trying to avoid a losing streak of their own.

The real test will be to see just how desperate each team is and who wants it more. The Flames are no pushovers, and would love nothing more than knock the Kings further down the Western Conference boards. Michael Cammalleri is sure to bring his A-Game against his former team.

But this is make-or-break time for the Kings. If they don't understand another loss will likely be the death knell to their disappointing season. And that won't be lost on Mike Richards and Jeff Carter.

Dustin Brown has been pretty silent as of late, and he needs to elevate his game if the Kings have any chance of making the playoffs.

My guess is the Kings have more in the tank, and should be able to get past the Flames. Even though Calgary is riding a 5-0-1 record at home, it'll be the Kings who will be left standing.

Score: Kings 3, Flames 1

The Royal Half from The Royal Half

Score: Kings 1, Flames 0 (SO)

Reason: Because the Kings are the most abusive relationship I've ever been in.

Record: 15-11

Meg Jerrell from Kings Court

Score: Kings 3, Flames 1

Reason: Because without a win, Kings playoff hopes are going up in flames...

Record: 14-12

Wavesinair from Deep Inside the Kings

Score: Kings 4, Flames 1

Reason: Flames are in a prime position to salvage their season and put the hurt on the Kings as well as the other Sutter brother. Last time they played, the Flames won 1-0 and pushed the Kings into 9th, while taking over 8th. Deja Vu all over again? I'm afraid of this game, but I'm banking on the 'real' Kings to show up and get the win. I'd like to bookend the season series with a solid win (just like they did in the first game), as opposed to scoring only one goal in the previous 2 games combined. The offense is back and it's pissed.

Record: 14-12

Jon Gillette from Rink Royalty

Score: Kings 4, Flames 2

Reason: Because that's what HAS to happen!

Record: 14-12

Hipcheck from LA Kings Road Talk podcast
