Carter, Clifford skating

Jeff Carter and Kyle Clifford took the ice at the end of the Los Angeles Kings’ morning skate in advance of Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Both players are still on injured reserve and will not play tonight, though it represents a step forward in their recovery process.

Clifford also took the ice Monday with Martin Jones.

UPDATE, 10:55 a.m.: Carter, Clifford, Jordan Nolan and Colin Fraser remained on the ice following the morning skate and took shots on Martin Jones. This is an indication that Nolan and Fraser will likely be out tonight, while Ben Scrivens will start against Tampa Bay.

Based on line rushes, expect to see the following alignments during five-on-five play:

Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams
Dwight King – Mike Richards – Tyler Toffoli
Daniel Carcillo – Jarret Stoll – Matt Frattin
Tanner Pearson – Linden Vey – Trevor Lewis

Jake Muzzin – Drew Doughty
Robyn Regehr – Slava Voynov
Willie Mitchell – Alec Martinez

Ben Scrivens
Martin Jones
