Jarret Stoll did not take part in line rushes at the morning skate, which places his availability for tonight’s game at the First Niagara Center in doubt. Jordan Nolan skated on the left side, opposite Trevor Lewis, on a line centered by Linden Vey.
The forward alignments, as indicated by line rushes:
Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams
Dwight King – Mike Richards – Tyler Toffoli
Jordan Nolan – Linden Vey – Trevor Lewis
Daniel Carcillo – Colin Fraser – Matt Frattin
Defensive pairings remained the same. Jonathan Quick left the ice first and is expected to start.
