No changes are expected in the Kings’ lineup.
Line combinations and defensive pairings at the morning skate:
Gaborik – Kopitar – Brown
Pearson – Carter – Toffoli
King – Stoll – Williams
Clifford – Richards – Lewis
Muzzin – Doughty
Regehr – Voynov
Mitchell – Martinez
-Jonathan Quick left the ice first at the morning skate, but you knew that without having to open this post.
-No changes are expected in San Jose’s lineup. Joe Pavelski skated to the left of Joe Thornton and Brent Burns, which means that Tomas Hertl is likely to skate opposite Tommy Wingels on James Sheppard’s line to begin the game. Because of Pavelski’s versatility between left wing and center, his usage changes as the game evolves.
