Getting their first taste of each other tonight, the Ducks and Kings will square off in the first official preseason game. These two teams will know each other inside and out (and possibly a couple more ways) as they play each other one more time in the preseason and then open up the regular season in London with two games... not to mention the other six they'll play in the regular season. If these two happen to meet in the playoffs... forget about it. There will be bloodshed. Ha ha.
The Ducks will likely start Ilya Bryzgalov tonight, according to their website, while the Kings have yet to release their roster this morning.
On the Ducks roster, the name to watch will be Bobby Ryan. He is listed on the last Anaheim team update about a month ago and he will line-up with Chris Kunitz and Ryan Getzlaf on the Ducks' top line tonight.
