Time for Jones?

As part of his plan to consider a couple lineup changes, Terry Murray said he would think about getting defenseman Randy Jones into the lineup. Jones has sat out five games after the Kings claimed him off waivers from Philadelphia. The issue, Murray said, it not so much learning the system — since Murray previously was an assistant coach in Philadelphia — but conditioning. Jones underwent hip surgery in May and did not get the full summer to train. Here’s what Murray said about his comfort level in terms of getting Jones into a game…

MURRAY: “It’s not a matter of comfort. I know Jonesy very well, from the Flyers. I feel very comfortable with how he can play and what he can do. It’s a matter of getting him into the NHL conditioning again. His summer was spent rehabbing a surgery. He’s getting close. He certainly has got to get some consideration here for tomorrow.”
