Well, now what?
For those wondering, this is essentially how the Kings’ forwards skated in the third period yesterday, after Anze Kopitar left the game…
What will the Kings do now? We’ll see, tomorrow morning in practice, what the lines look like. For now — and this can change at any moment, based on the whims of the people making the decisions — I don’t believe the Kings will be calling up any healthy bodies from Manchester. As I mentioned the last time Brayden Schenn’s name came up, there exists a slim possibility that the Kings could bring him up, but only in a narrow, injury-related emergency-recall situation (the exact details of which I’m not 100-percent certain). As of now, Schenn cannot be called up. That leaves Kevin Westgarth as a healthy body, along with Peter Harrold and Davis Drewiske.
What’s your plan? Any recommendations?
