6 Things To Watch For Tonight On Fox Sports West
New York Rangers vs. Los Angeles Kings

RANGERS (0-1-0) at KINGS (1-1-0)


1. Home Opener! We were just going to write that and leave the rest blank, but seriously; LA vs NY, sold out STAPLES Center, Bob and Jim. Hopefully it goes better than the last one...

2. This is the first time the Rangers have played at STAPLES Center since Feb. 2nd, 2010. The Rangers captain, Ryan Callahan is expected to play tonight as is Nash and Richards. Players we rarely see over here on the west coast.

3. Kings fans are very familiar with Alain Vigneault; seeing him behind a team of red, white, and blue will be quite a shock.

4. It's a new year and Fox Sports West has really upped their broadcast. New graphics, new videos, new music, new personalities. Insight and previews from Sean O'Donnell, Patrick O'Neal, Alex Curry, Daryl Evans, Jon Rosen, Jim Fox, and Bob Miller. Pregame show starts at 7PM PT, puck drops at 7:30.

5. The Kings are playing on home ice. Where they had the best home record in the league last year, including 8-1 in the playoffs.

6. Opening night is cool and all, but this is what the LA Kings fans really want -
