Monday practice update

Willie Mitchell did some post-practice skating today. Afterward, Mitchell said he had a slight groin strain and estimated that he is now at 75 percent, which is encouraging for his short-term prospects of playing, but Mitchell will not play tomorrow. Mike Richards rode a stationary bike and “feels better,” Terry Murray said, but that’s the only update there.

As for the lines, Murray said his motivations were to reunite the Kopitar line and to move Dustin Brown back to left wing, where he had looked effective. More notes and quotes to come, and don’t forget the Jim Fox chat on LAKings.com at 1 p.m.
