Kings at Avalanche: pre-game links, rosters and listen live

A few quick links to get you ready for tonight’s game between the Los Angeles Kings and the Colorado Avalanche:

* Over the summer, the Avs signed free agent defenseman Shane O’Brien – that’s a name Kings fans may remember from the 2010 NHL playoffs, when he was with the Vancouver Canucks. Kevin Westgarth and former King Wayne Simmonds spoke about his antics on MayorsManor last season (article).

* Brad Richardson – a one man wrecking crew against his former Avalanche teammates – was featured in a MayorsManor article earlier today. He’s fighting to land one of the the final roster spots on the Kings third or fourth lines.

* The guy who seems to be on the hot seat right now, Scott Parse, is back in the line-up tonight. Earlier this week he thought his problems were between his ears. Coach Terry Murray was going to meet with him late Monday to see what was going on. Full story here.

Projected Kings line-up:

Simon Gagne – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams
Brad Richardson – Trevor Lewis – Trent Hunter
Dwight King – Justin Azevedo – Ethan Moreau
Kyle Clifford – Andrei Loktionov – Scott Parse

Willie Mitchell – Slava Voynov
Alec Martinez – Jack Johnson
Andrew Campbell – Thomas Hickey

Jonathan Quick is scheduled to play the whole game in net, with Jeff Zatkoff backing him up.

Projected Avalanche lineup:

Peter Mueller – Matt Duchene – Milan Hejduk
Gabriel Landeskog – Paul Stastny – David Jones
Patrick Bordeleau – Brad Malone – T.J. Galiardi
Cody McLeod – Jay McClement – Chuck Kobasew

Stefan Elliott – Shane O’Brien
Tyson Barrie – Erik Johnson
Ryan Wilson – Ryan O’Byrne

Goaltenders – Semyon Varlamov and Trevor Cann
