Monday practice update; Bernier starts

Jonathan Bernier, not shutout-streak Jonthan Quick, will start in goal when the Kingd host New Jersey tomorrow night. Terry Murray said he made that decision before Saturday’s game and told Bernier, and Murray cited the tough recent schedule and the fact that the Kings have three conference games after tomorrow.

As for Drew Doughty, there was great encouragement about his effort today but he is unlikely to play tomorrow. Doughty hasn’t yet been cleared for contact and said he would like to get in a couple regular practices, something Murray concurred with, saying he woul point to the road trip for Doughty’s return. More notes and quotes from practice to come…
