March 17 morning line rushes

Line rushes and notes from this morning’s skate:

Gaborik – Kopitar – Williams
King – Richards – Carter
Pearson – Stoll – Toffoli
Clifford – Lewis – Nolan

Mitchell – Doughty
Regehr – Voynov
Martinez – Greene

Quick
Jones

-Yes, the players felt the earthquake.

-Jonathan Quick left the ice first. Expect him to start against the Phoenix Coyotes tonight at Staples Center.

-Jake Muzzin remained on the ice for extra work, so he’s likely out tonight. He did rotate in several rushes defensively, though Willie Mitchell took the first rush with Drew Doughty, and Alec Martinez took the first rush with Matt Greene.

-Dustin Brown skated for the first time since Thursday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, joining Goaltending Coach Bill Ranford, Strength and Conditioning Coach Ryan van Asten and goaltender Martin Jones for some work after much of the team had left the ice. He is nursing a minor lower body injury and should not be expected to play tonight. There is a chance he could play on Thursday against the Washington Capitals.
