Morning skate updates

The New Jersey Devils held their media availability at the team hotel this morning, and no changes are expected, but the Kings are expected to make one change, with Simon Gagne drawing in for Brad Richardson. It’s not known whether Richardson has an injury — ice time in the first two games wouldn’t suggest so, at least not an injury preventing him from playing — but Gagne would be back in a game for the first time since he suffered a concussion on Dec. 26, likely in that fourth-line role alongside Colin Fraser and Jordan Nolan.
