LA Kings at Ducks: pre-game notes, line-up, Doughty, more

The game in Anaheim is starting in less than hour.

Last Sunday at Staples Center, the Kings lost to the Ducks 3-1. LA’s lone goal came from Andrei Loktionov, who was sent to Manchester (AHL) earlier this afternoon. You can read the post-game notes and quotes from that contest here.  Coach Terry Murray wasn’t happy with the performance of Scott Parse that night – pause the thought for a moment though.

Here are a few other Kings-Ducks articles that have appeared on MayorsManor previously. These should get you warmed up and ready to go:

Tonight’s projected line-up for the Kings is as follows:

Simon Gagne – Anze Kopitar – Scott Parse
Dustin Penner – Mike Richards – Dustin Brown
Kyle Clifford – Jarret Stoll – Ethan Moreau
Brad Richardson – Trevor Lewis – Trent Hunter
[update: Dustin Penner was a late scratch, replaced by Dwight King]

Willie Mitchell – Slava Voynov
Rob Scuderi – Thomas Hickey
Davis Drewiske – Matt Greene

Jonathan Bernier – Jeff Zatkoff

This may very well be the final shot for Parse, especially considering the Kings just signed Trent Hunter to a one-year deal earlier today.

Parse was on MayorsManor recently, claiming the ineffectiveness he’s displayed in camp is a ‘problem between his ears’ – read that article here.

Hunter was also on MayorsManor recently, talking about his knee and playing with skilled guys like Kopitar and Penner (linked here).

The game starts at 6pm PST, you can listen live via the KTLK website.

As for Drew Doughty, he’s been signed to a new eight-year contract (detailed here) and is not expected to play his first game until the Kings get over to Europe – more on that later this weekend.
