Well, now what? - LA Kings Insider

For those wondering, this is essentially how the Kings’ forwards skated in the third period yesterday, after Anze Kopitar left the game…

Penner-Handzus-Moller
Smyth-Lewis-Brown
Ponikarovsky-Stoll-Simmonds
Clifford-Richardson-(double-shifted winger)

What will the Kings do now? We’ll see, tomorrow morning in practice, what the lines look like. For now — and this can change at any moment, based on the whims of the people making the decisions — I don’t believe the Kings will be calling up any healthy bodies from Manchester. As I mentioned the last time Brayden Schenn’s name came up, there exists a slim possibility that the Kings could bring him up, but only in a narrow, injury-related emergency-recall situation (the exact details of which I’m not 100-percent certain). As of now, Schenn cannot be called up. That leaves Kevin Westgarth as a healthy body, along with Peter Harrold and Davis Drewiske.

What’s your plan? Any recommendations?
