March 5 morning skate notes

It was a quiet morning at the Toyota Sports Center as only six players took the ice for an optional morning skate in advance of tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues: Jonathan Quick, Davis Drewiske, Brad Richardson, Jake Muzzin, Alec Martinez and Keaton Ellerby.

Quick, Drewiske and Richardson remained on the ice for some extra work, which would be an indication that the lineup won’t change from the Nashville game and that Jonathan Bernier will draw the start for the second consecutive night.

I’ll post an evaluation of Bernier by Goaltending Coach Bill Ranford shortly, followed by some Darryl Sutter quotes. In the afternoon check back for a preview of tonight’s game against St. Louis.
