-No changes are expected with Los Angeles’ lines, as the Kings are likely to roll with seven defensemen and 11 forwards again. Rob Scuderi, on playing on his off-side: “I probably played half my NHL games on the right side, so I haven’t noticed it. Growing up we always had too many lefties, so I always played the right side. I think there’s advantages and disadvantages. You can see the middle of the ice better when you’re playing your off-side. At the same time, there’s a little bit more of a blind spot that you have to check before you get it. Besides maybe being on the blue line on your backhand every once in a while, I didn’t really notice that big a difference.”

Projected Lines – St. Louis

Jaden Schwartz – David Backes – Alex Steen
