The Kings, limping along on a seven-game trip, will meet the Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens tonight. Los Angeles has lost every game on this trip, although all have been close. The Kings were beaten, 5-4, Saturday night by the New York Islanders as mistakes once again proved costly. With a 3-6-0 record, and a challenging schedule immediately ahead, Coach Pat Quinn's hopes for a good start this season appear dim.

Coach Pat Quinn of the Kings says it's time for his defensemen to show what they have learned. He'll take a close look tonight as Los Angeles plays the Vancouver Canucks in their first exhibition game at Victoria Memorial Arena in Victoria, Canada. "We are going to try some kids; we are going to look at a lot of people," Quinn said. "Camps often aren't as physical as the games. It'll be different once we're in it."

Doug Christie talked trash and flung himself at loose balls. Mike Bibby drove the lane with abandon, Chris Webber crashed the boards -- and Brad Miller did more dirty work than everybody else combined. Anybody still think the Sacramento Kings aren't tough enough to go deep in the postseason? The San Antonio Spurs became believers after the Kings got nasty in a 101-87 victory Sunday.

The Kings, winners of three straight games for only the second time this season, will play the Edmonton Oilers tonight in their last game of the regular season.

The three-time Stanley Cup champions have a 44-25-10 record. The Kings are 30-42-7.
