Ex-Vancouver Canucks head coach Marc Crawford will get his last chance at revenge tonight when his Los Angeles Kings visit the team that fired him last spring (7 p.m. Team 1040/Sportsnet).

The Kings are playing for pride, only three points better than the West's worst Phoenix Coyotes. The playoff-bound Canucks need two wins in their final four regular season games to clinch third place in the Western conference.

It'll be Vancouver's penultimate home game of the regular season. They were 3-2 losers Saturday when the Calgary Flames visited. The Canucks were 4-2 winners in Los Angeles last Thursday despite a lacklustre third period.

Meanwhile, it's Canadian Forces night at General Motors Place. Gen. Rick Hillier will drop the puck in a ceremonial face-off. Five thousand Support Our Troops pucks will be given away after the game.
