February 25 Morning Skate notes

Good morning, Insiders. Reign Insider Lindsay Czarnecki filling in today for the ever-busy Jon Rosen. Here’s some notes from today’s fairly straight forward 10 a.m. morning skate at Toyota Sports Center.

–Line rushes remained unchanged, so it’s expected the team will continue to go with a similar look tonight against Edmonton:

Lucic-Kopitar-Brown
King-Carter-Toffoli
Pearson-Lecavalier-Lewis
Clifford-Shore-Andreoff
Mersch

Muzzin-Doughty
Martinez-Schenn
McNabb-McBain
Gravel

–The only player to not participate was Jordan Nolan (undisclosed ailment) and afterwards Darryl Sutter said it was a treatment day for the forward.

–Jonathan Quick was first off the ice and is expected to make his fifth straight start.

–Both forward Michael Mersch and defenseman Kevin Gravel stayed on the ice for extra work and were on the ice for a full hour. The recent call-ups from the Reign are likely out for tonight.

Quotes coming up from Drew Doughty about his big minutes. Also, Sutter talked about the team’s need to pick up scoring with Marian Gaborik out, and adjusting in general after returning from a long road trip.
