Thursday skate update

Darryl Sutter wouldn’t commit to whether Slava Voynov would play tonight. Voynov was a full participant in today’s morning skate, a day after me missed practice. Yesterday, Sutter said Voynov was “banged up” but would play tonight. Asked directly, after today’s skate, about Voynov’s status, Sutter said, “You’ll have to see. I’m not going to lie to you and I’m not going to give you any secrets either.” Welcome to playoff-like injury reports…

Jeff Carter skated for about 20 minutes. Afterward, Carter indicated that he wouldn’t practice tomorrow but said he thought he would be ready for the start of a playoff series (assuming there is one for the Kings).

Jonathan Quick is tonight’s starting goalie and Kevin Westgarth is slated to be scratched. Davis Drewiske will likely skate in warmups and would play if Voynov can’t go.
