With the Kings riding a four-game winning streak, no lineup changes are expected for tomorrow’s game at Boston, unless Jack Johnson’s arm injury prevents him from playing. “I’ll probably stay with what we saw last night,” Murray said, which would make Randy Jones and Teddy Purcell the healthy scratches.
Murray also said that Jonathan Quick will start in goal against Boston. Murray indicated that he would wait until after that game to decide whether Quick or Erik Ersberg would start Sunday at New Jersey. “We’re just taking the next game right now, and Quick will play,” Murray said.
Also, Johnson’s status could impact this, but Murray said the plan is still for Davis Drewiske to make his return Sunday.
“He now has the green light to get in and play,” Murray said. “I’m not going to play him in back-to-back games. I don’t want to risk that, but I would sure like to get him in one of the two.”
