New line stays intact

As previously posted, the Kings will stay with a line that seemed to work well in the third period last night, with Jarret Stoll centering Scott Parse and Dustin Brown.

Foremost, it’s another nice step forward for Parse, who has averaged just under 12 minutes of ice time per game so far but is likely to see that take a tick upward. He seems to have developed some chemistry with Stoll, and now the two of them will skate with Brown. Here’s what Murray said today about the new line…

MURRAY: “Brownie was on that line there. After looking at it, after the game last night, I felt that maybe we’ll give it another look. I certainly like the way Parse played in the game last night. He was the one player that — throughout the second period, especially — that was moving his feet, had the puck, was getting it in deep, trying to get some good play on the offensive part of it and generated a couple scoring opportunities with smart plays from below the goal line. It would be great if we could get three lines with some production on a pretty consistent basis, and it looks, on paper, like it should happen.”
