Sunday (non-)skate update

It’s been a light morning in Arizona. The Phoenix Coyotes did not have a morning skate, and the Kings opted for a team meeting followed by a skate for the scratched players. Incidentally, goalie Martin Jones has made the trip with the team to participate in practice. It’s kind of full circle for the Manchester Monarchs’ goalies. Jeff Zatkoff started the season with the Kings, when he accompanied them to Europe as the third goalie, and now Jones is getting a taste as the third goalie in the playoffs. Outside, it’s still relatively quiet but no doubt things will get heated up later (literally and figuratively).

Also, a reminder that Nick Nickson and Daryl Evans will have the radio call, and they will also have a postgame “Kings Talk” call-in show from the arena. The game and show will be simulcast on 570-AM and 1150-AM, plus the usual affiliates. Bob Miller and Jim Fox will also have the postgame “Kings Live” show on Fox Sports West, and Jim will be joining us for an in-game chat here.
