Level of confidence in projected lines: A. The line rushes at the morning skate were the same that had been used over the previous two days of practice. Jake Muzzin (undisclosed) and Trevor Lewis (upper-middle body) remain out, though Muzzin was on the ice with the team this morning. Jordan Nolan is expected to enter the lineup to replace Lewis. Jonathan Quick left the ice first at the morning skate and is projected to draw the start in net.

Notes and milestones: Los Angeles is 80-96-25-7 all-time against the Arizona/Phoenix/Winnipeg franchise, a record that includes an away mark of 35-54-11-5. This is the first of four meetings between the two teams; they will also meet at Gila River Arena on December 4 and at Staples Center on December 20 and March 16. Because of the scheduling imbalance, the Kings will play Arizona four times and all other Pacific Division teams five times. Last year, Los Angeles played Edmonton only four times. … The Kings have lost four straight games in Glendale (0-4-0) since a 4-2 win on January 26, 2013. They have been outscored 14-4 over those games. … Jonathan Quick is 1-3-2 with a 3.26 goals-against average and an .891 save percentage in Glendale since a 2-0 win at [then] Jobing.com Arena on October 20, 2011. … Los Angeles is yet to record its first goal of 2014-15. Drew Doughty scored Los Angeles’ first goal of 2013-14, a power play goal in Minnesota. … With 162 career assists, Drew Doughty is one assist behind Marty McSorley for fifth place amongst defensemen and 22nd overall amongst all skaters in club history. … With 31 career shutouts, Jonathan Quick is one shutout behind Rogie Vachon for first place overall in club history. … With 197 points as a King (75-122=197), Jarret Stoll is three points shy of 200 with the club. … With 98 wins with Los Angeles, Darryl Sutter is two wins from 100 wins with the club. The fastest coach to 100 wins with the organization was Terry Murray, who accomplished the feat in 197 games. Sutter will coach his 181st game with the Kings tonight.
