April 12 morning line rushes

Line rushes from Saturday’s morning skate:

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

Regehr – Voynov
Muzzin – Greene
Mitchell – Martinez
Campbell – Doughty


-Jonathan Quick left the ice first. He is expected to start against Anaheim tonight.

-It is expected that Robyn Regehr will draw back into the lineup for Los Angeles after missing three games with an undisclosed injury. I’ll have a story with his quotes posted shortly.

-It is less likely that Drew Doughty will play. He did not remain on the ice for extra work, and there could theoretically be a situation in which the Kings use seven defensemen, though it’s more probable that the team rests him in advance of the playoffs.

-With that in mind, today’s scratches are likely to be Pearson, Campbell and Doughty.

-There will be limited coverage and an abbreviated preview on the blog this afternoon. I’ll explain this in a blog post shortly.
