Monday update, and wine event

It looks as though the Kings are headed for one lineup change tonight, with Kevin Westgarth replacing Trent Hunter. Hunter and Alec Martinez are doing extra skating, and Davis Drewiske came off early again, so it seems the Kings will have seven defensemen in warmups again. Jonathan Quick was the first goalie off, so he’s the likely starter.

Also, a reminder that tickets are still available for Jim Fox’s “Red and White All-Star Wine Tasting’’ event, to be held Sunday at The Mixing Room, located in the JW Marriott across the street from Staples Center, from noon-4 p.m., to coincide with the NHL All-Star Game. The event, with all proceeds going to the Kings Care Foundation, features a wine-tasting tutorial from Jim, a wine-tasting contest, a bottle-design contest and other fun with various Kings personalities. More information, and $100 tickets, are available by clicking
