March 21 morning line rushes

The Kings moved around their forward lines at practice today in advance of Saturday afternoon’s game against the Florida Panthers.

The forward alignment:

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

-These lines are likely in part serving as a reaction to the lack of production recently from the second line. Mike Richards has been held scoreless for six consecutive games, a string of unproductive play that may have had an effect on Jeff Carter, who has four goals in the last 19 games and only five shots on goal over the last three. Carter, who regularly takes faceoffs on his strong side, is interchangeable between center and right wing.
