Level of confidence in projected lines: A-. Because of injuries to Anze Kopitar, Marian Gaborik and Trevor Lewis, and because Slava Voynov’s indefinite suspension, the Kings are likely to dress 19 players tonight and would be eligible to apply for an emergency call-up in advance of Thursday’s game in Pittsburgh. Jonathan Quick left the ice first at the morning skate and is expected to draw the start against Philadelphia.
