Playing with a short roster because of players' participation in the Canada Cup tournament, the Kings seek their first exhibition victory tonight against a team making its first visit to the Forum.

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. This is the Oilers' worst season since 1980-81, but a victory tonight would be their fourth straight and would enable them to reach the 100-point plateau for a seventh straight season. The three-time Stanley Cup champions have a 44-25-10 record. The Kings are 30-42-7.

The Los Angeles media have finally caught up to the New York media in cruelty and fickleness. I can't believe some of the things that were said regarding Kevin Stevens' return to the Kings' organization. What a way to welcome a player to our town. Stevens is going to be great. Although Rick Tocchet will be missed, we are going to see some improvement in the Kings. Stevens definitely is a proven winner and clutch performer, and he plays left wing, which is what the Kings need. Playing alongside Wayne Gretzky will make him a 50-goal scorer again.

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."
