Could the Los Angeles Kings be feeling a bit of a hangover from their Stanley Cup victory?

They've come out of the gate in this lockout-shortened season a little sluggish, mustering 3 points in the first four games.

They'll try to jump-start things tonight when they face the Vancouver Canucks in a matchup of the last two Western Conference champs, as well as last season's conference quarterfinals, when the Kings steamrolled their way through in five games, despite the fact the Canucks were the top seed. Vancouver has played average to start the season, picking up a mere 5 points. Tonight, we'll see which team is closer to righting the ship.
