Saturday skate update

The Kings will make a lineup change tonight, with Trent Hunter replacing Andrei Loktionov. That will mean a third line of center Trevor Lewis with Brad Richardson and Hunter. Mike Richards had a lengthy skate this morning in a red no-contact jersey. Still waiting for an update on his status. Rob Scuderi is here, but his wife might give birth any day, so he’s on baby watch. More updates from the skate to come…

[Update: After his skate, Richards said he is still feeling some symptoms but will continue to skate in the coming days. There's no timetable for his return to game action.]
