Four Kings play Word Association with Coyotes leaders

Three games into the Kings' six-game season series with the Coyotes it's been exactly what you'd expect from two division rivals - tight, close battles. They split a pair of games in October, with the Kings shutting out the Coyotes 2-0 in the first contest and losing 3-2 in a shootout a little over a week later.

Both those games were in Phoenix. Then, the day after Christmas, Staples Center hosted game three and the Kings won 4-3 - getting two goals from their defensemen (Rob Scuderi and Willie Mitchell), a rare site this year.

With a look ahead to tonight's game, we asked a few of the Kings to play word association using the names of four Coyotes players they know well - long-time captain Shane Doan (a Kings killer throughout his career), Ray Whitney (leading the 'Yotes with 35 points...and 15 career goals vs. LA, his most against any Western Conference team), Keith Yandle (leads all Phoenix defensemen with 24 points) and Derek Morris (has played 63 career games vs LA).

Here were the answers...

from Dustin Brown

Doan - Physical
Whitney - Magical
Yandle - White stick
Morris - Big

from Drew Doughty

Doan - Plays hard
Whitney - Really smart
Yandle - Good offensively
Morris - Good shot from the point

from Dustin Penner

Doan - Cowboy
Whitney - Funny
Yandle - Unfortunately, he's friends with Ryan Whitney
(follow up question - Is that a problem? "For him probably")
Morris - Cool nickname, D-Mo

from Mike Richards

Doan - Hard working
Whitney - Skilled
Yandle - Awesome
Morris - Hard shot
