Thursday morning stake – Sutter’s probable lines for Game 4 vs Chicago

Live from Staples Center, here’s how Kings coach Darryl Sutter has put things together – and will probably keep them for tonight’s Game 4 vs. the Chicago Blackhawks…

FORWARDS

Dustin Brown – Jarret Stoll – Justin Williams
Dustin Penner – Jeff Carter – Tyler Toffoli
Dwight King – Anze Kopitar – Trevor Lewis
Kyle Clifford – Colin Fraser – Brad Richardson

NOTE: Jordan Nolan remains an option on the fourth line, but is likely not going to play. Mike Richards isn’t skating, which all but guarantees he’s out tonight.

[UPDATE: Sutter confirms Richards is out, will not play.]

DEFENSEMEN

Robyn Regehr – Drew Doughty
Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov
Jake Muzzin – Matt Greene

NOTE: Alec Martinez could replace Muzzin on defense again and Keaton Ellerby is not expected to play.

Jonathan Quick will start in net.

As always though, nothing is official until warm-ups before the game…

MayorsManor will have notes and quotes up on twitter once the players leave the ice. We’ll also have more coverage up on the site later this afternoon. Until then, catch up on some reading at the links below.
