Before getting to the line rushes, there’s this note:
Have been told that Thursday has been targeted for Jonathan Quick to get on the ice to test his groin.

Lines at this morning’s skate:
Dwight King – Anze Kopitar – Jeff Carter
Dustin Brown – Jarret Stoll – Justin Williams
Kyle Clifford – Mike Richards – Tyler Toffoli
Daniel Carcillo – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan
Trevor Lewis – Linden Vey – Matt Frattin
Jake Muzzin – Drew Doughty
Robyn Regehr – Slava Voynov
Willie Mitchell – Alec Martinez
The team is still on the ice, so I’ll update tonight’s projected starting when it becomes available.
Judging from those alignments, it appears unlikely that Greene or Lewis will be activated prior to tonight’s game. It also appears as though the scratches will be Vey and Frattin. Frattin played a career-low 7:06 in Saturday’s win over the New York Islanders. Changes are always possible, so “wait for the song” for tonight’s official lineup, as Darryl Sutter has said.
UPDATE: Martin Jones left the ice first. He is your projected starter.
