After taking yesterday off the Kings will return to the ice at their practice facility in El Segundo at 10am this morning. Here’s a couple quick notes and then we’ll update this in a few hours…
– The status of defenseman Alec Martinez is still TBD. Expect an update following practice.
– Rookie Andrew Campbell has been recalled from Manchester (AHL). This is his second call-up this season, however he didn’t play a game last time. On a positive note, he scored for the Monarchs last night, his first in over a year. See the highlights here.
– Coming off of a win coaches usually keep their line combinations together. If Darryl Sutter goes with that philosophy, they’ll suit up like this:
[update 10:15am... these are official, this is how they're skating today]
Simon Gagne – Anze Kopitar – Dustin Brown
Kyle Clifford – Jeff Carter – Justin Williams
Dwight King – Mike Richards – Jordan Nolan
Dustin Penner – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis
Leaving Colin Fraser and Brad Richardson as the extra skaters.
On defense they would be paired as follows:
Keaton Ellerby – Drew Doughty
Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov
Jake Muzzin – Davis Drewiske
We’ll provide live updates via twitter today. So be sure to follow along.
[update II...the first round of detailed quotes have been posted - includes Sutter on injuries, goaltending and defense]
