Tuesday preseason game expected lines

You look terrific this morning, Insiders. Lines shown at this morning’s skate at Toyota Sports Center:

Lucic – Kopitar – Gaborik
King – Lewis – Brown
Andreoff – Weal – O’Neill
Auger – Shore – Mersch

Muzzin – Doughty
Martinez – Ehrhoff
Forbort – MacDermid


-Those who appeared in Monday’s win over Arizona and will also play in tonight’s game versus the Coyotes (7:30 p.m / STAPLES Center): Andy Andreoff, Jordan Weal, Brian O’Neill, Justin Auger, Nick Shore, Michael Mersch and Derek Forbort. Andreoff, who had a strong performance on Monday, will get a look at left wing alongside Weal and O’Neill, while Mersch will slot to the right of Auger and Shore.

-This isn’t confirmed – I haven’t yet spoken with Darryl Sutter yet today – but expect both goalies to see action tonight, just as J-F Berube and Patrik Bartosak split time in Bakersfield.

-The game will not be televised. Only the Anaheim games and the Frozen Fury outing against Colorado will be televised on FOX Sports West / Prime Ticket. All preseason, regular season and postseason games can be heard on KABC 790 and I Heart Radio.
