Friday practice update

Plenty of post-practice stuff to run through…

– Mike Richards will go on injured reserve tomorrow, meaning he will be out at least seven days. Willie Mitchell will not go on injured reserve, but Terry Murray said he fears Mitchell will miss multiple games.

– Both Murray and Dean Lombardi said they didn’t have a problem with Sean Bergenheim’s hit on Richards — there was no fine or suspension — but Lombardi was upset that the Kings ended up on the penalty kill because of the sequence.

– No players are expected to be called up. Dustin Penner will be activated from injured reserve and Davis Drewiske will play. Brad Richardson is also expected to replace Trent Hunter. Alec Martinez has been medically cleared but isn’t yet ready to play.

– Jonathan Bernier will start in goal tomorrow.

– Here’s how the Kings are likely to line up…

Gagne-Kopitar-Brown
Penner-Stoll-Williams
Richardson-Loktionov-Westgarth
Clifford-Fraser-Moreau

Scuderi-Doughty
Johnson-Voynov
Drewiske-Greene
