Trevor Lewis on missing Stoll, playing with Brown tonight

Following the Kings’ 45-minute morning skate at Staples Center in advance of tonight’s Game 5 vs. the visiting San Jose Sharks, here’s what forward Trevor Lewis had to share…

On the line changes coach Sutter is making to start Game 5:

“I assume we need to get a little more offense going. Sometimes you need a little switch to get some chemistry going. With my line, I’m familiar playing with King and I’ve obviously played with Brownie a little bit, too. I think it’s a good line if we get pucks in and fore check and be hard on them.”

On if there will be a greater tendency to pass the puck to Dustin Brown when they’re on the same line together:

“Yeah, he’s definitely a shooter. So, whatever we can do to get him the puck. At the same time, he gets in on the fore check hard and likes to finish his hits too. We do a good time of supporting each other and going in to create some traffic.”

On the team’s preparation for face-offs:

“Stolly (Jarret Stoll) is obviously our best face-off guy so we miss him there. They have a good team face-off wise. They really have a lot of guys to take draws. I don’t think we’ve done anything more, just a little more practice on them and trying to be quicker. Not too worried about it. They got to put their stick down first tonight so it should benefit us.”

On what he did to clear his mind yesterday:

“I actually watched hockey, watched the Pittsburgh game. (MM: The whole thing?)…”For the most part, yeah. I like to watch hockey. Me and Dewey sat on the couch, cooked up some food and watched hockey.”
